Many a makeup palette are created with inspirations of the season, but rarely have I come across ones that are inspired by an entire city.
NYX Cosmetics has come up with the Wanderlust Lip & Eye Collection that are dedicated to seven major cities around the globe.
There’s one for Los Angeles, Madrid, Paris, London, Coopenhagen, Vancouver… and Dubai!
Sephora Middle East is flooding with absolutely drool-worthy holiday makeup palettes, but if there’s one I really have to recommend splurging on, it has to be the Tarte Treasure Box Collector’s Set.
When it comes to fashion, I’m anything but mainstream. I’ve always been drawn to the bizarre, the bohemian, and oftentimes the overly loud and colorful.
Earlier this month I was at Pull & Bear, and spotted this black sweat-shirt. Nothing bizarre in that you’d say… till you see the sleeves! The sleeves on this bad-boy are coated in faux fur and makes the wearer resemble an exotic bird of sorts. Ofcourse I had to have it!
Influenster, one of the largest product discovery and reviews platforms on the online web, has finally landed in the UAE and I am super excited to be one of the first bloggers to receive a #VoxBox from them. This month, we got introduced to 4 different makeup products from none other than drugstore brand Max Factor.

Here’s a look at the products I used to create this look:
Swedish makeup brand IsaDora is still relatively new in the UAE, although the brand was established way back in 1983. Reasonably priced, fragrance-free and clinically tested, IsaDora can be bought across a long list of retail outlets including Lifestyle.
I was recently sent this absolutely #Isadorable bag of IsaDora makeup, and got busy playing with my new stash. I even came up with a very doable, everyday makeup look and wanted to share this with you here…
I’ve always been a huge fan of Barcelona-born fashion brand Desigual. Their offbeat prints and colour clashes always appealed to the boho in me. However, this very notion of ‘loud’, non-confirmative mix of prints makes many turn away from the brand.
Come Spring Summer 2017, the brand new collection at Desigual has gone through a major transformation. Sure the crazy cool clash of colors stays true to the brand DNA, but the range now includes a wider range of options for those seeking a more sober wardrobe palette.
Casual day out in a super comfy pair of boyfriend-fit jeans and blouse? I bet this is not what you envisage… Dressed in blue, dressed in Desigual. Always so beautifully different!
I haven’t done a #motd (‘makeup of the day’) post for a while, so today’s write-up is a breakdown of what went on my face to create my last selfie upload on Instagram:
They say a significant portion of your selfie game is determined by the state of your hair, and I can’t agree more. I have already been raving about the balayage blonde coloring I got done by the very talented Roger from Station 10 salon (located in Ramada Jumeirah) – click here if you missed it. For more information and appointments, give them a call on 04 7027098.
I had the pleasure of being invited for a sneak peak of Sephora’s Winter 2016 lineup, and let me warn you to tighten those purse strings… the new season range, set to hit the stores from 1st December 2016, is sure to make you go broke! There were just so many things I have added to my Christmas wishlist… a brand new storage system for all my makeup stash being one!
However, space should not be an issue with Sephora’s very own Geometricolor Palette. With 80 eye-shadows, 32 lip glosses, 6 eye-liners, 4 brow powders, 4 blushes, 4 contouring powders and 1 generously sized mirror, you have an endless list of makeup possibilities with this beauty!
Wearing makeup to achieve a ‘no makeup’ look may sound like a major paradox, but the whole idea behind it is to enhance your natural features. There is something very refreshingly youthful about minimalist makeup. It gives the wearer a sense of carefree confidence, an ‘I woke up looking like this’ feeling we would all love to achieve.
As with anything to do with makeup, there is no right or wrong way at achieving this look. Do what works best for you. Here are a few pointers that may help you with the ‘No Makeup’ makeup look:
