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.
Highlighters are here to stay, and surely you have quite a few shades of gold, bronze and champagne in your stash. But have you ever considered hues outside this color spectrum? Move over ordinary highlighters, the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette is a total game changer!
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 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!
Contouring and highlighting is here to stay. Struggling to achieve the perfect balance of chiseled and glowing? I have a secret to share with you… I am absolutely obsessed with the BECCA Lowlight Highlight Perfecting Palette. This powder palette features a ‘highlight’ and ‘lowlight’ for adding light and shadows to bring out the best in your features. Being powder-based, the colours can be worked up to go dramatic for a night out or subtle enough to use on daily basis.
The Velvet Touch Lipstick range by Gosh Cosmetics is pretty phenomenal. Love their 014 Matte Cranberry, and I recently got sent a limited edition jet-black lipstick from the same line. The perfect shade with Halloween coming up ofcourse!
However, I have been toying with the idea of incorporating black lipstick into my regular lippy stash for a while now. So how do you wear this vampy shade without looking like an absolute vampire? Read on for a few tips and tricks that will see you go black pouted far more often than you would have thought doable.
I recently got sent the Too Faced Dark Chocolate Soleil bronzer, and am absolutely obsessed with it. Here’s a simple bronzed-up look I created using this palette:
Gosh Cosmetics is a makeup brand hailing from Denmark, and prides itself for its high-quality products that are in par with some of the biggest brands on the beauty shelves (yet cost a fraction of the price). Moreover, the brand is cruelty-free, their products contain no harmful parabans or synthetic additives, and apart from their lipsticks which contain beeswax, the Gosh range can also claim to be vegan-friendly! (For more on Gosh Cosmetics, read my earlier post by clicking here).
I just got back to good old sunny Dubai, and went ecstatic discovering a whole new bag of Gosh goodies in my mailbox! Ofcourse I had to play with them right away 🙂
I recently posted this #MakeupSelfie on Instagram, a rather minimal look that I think is perfect for Ramadan and late-night Iftar and Suhoor soirees. Quite a few of you have inboxed me on how to get this look, so without much ado I am sharing my Ramadan Makeup Look ‘recipe’ with you 🙂
