I’ve created two festive looks; one with the classic sparkly eyes and bold red lips, and the other with a more cleaner base and subtler lips. I’m pretty obsessed with the Tarte Winter Wonder Glam Eyeshadow Palette, and used it for both looks.
As a makeup blogger, I’ve acquired quite a large ammunition of makeup and my favorites keep changing by season and reason. Currently, my go-to stash seems to highlight on highlighter (pun intended). I’ve been keeping my makeup look pretty minimal but going all-out with that glow.
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Sephora
Middle East Fall 2019 event and spent a great deal of time at the Kat Von D
Beauty stall. Love this tattoo artist turned beauty mogul! I’m a sucker for art,
great packaging and surreal shades of color, and Kat seems to effortlessly dish
it all out time and time again.
Kat Von D Beauty has now come out with a brand new
medium-coverage foundation range, and being a brand that values inclusion of
all, the range is launching with 40 shades that cover very fair to very deep shades.
The choice of lipstick shade can transform an entire look, and at Sephora we are really spoilt for choice the rainbow of options.
22nd July to 3rd August 2019 is flagged
as ‘Lipstick Week’ at Sephora, and to celebrate, all online orders on Sephora.ae or Sephora.sa get a chance to spin
the wheel to win either a full size Sephora Collection Lip Stain, a Huda Beauty
Shameless Lip Strobe, a cute Lippie Phone Ring, a set of Multi-branded Duo
Minis or even Free Delivery.
Are you planning to splurge on lipstick this week? Here’s a helpful list of best-selling shades to consider, available at all Sephora stores across the Middle East:
I think I’ve found the holy grail for mascaras. It comes in this eclectic hexagonal tube, so akin to everything super-stylish to come out from the ‘Marc Jacobs’ label.
It brings my barely-there lashes to life, like you can actually see them! Thick and luscious sans any annoying clumps with just a single sweep. A second coat gives me the ‘vavavoom’ look of false lashes. I’m talking about the epic Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara.
What’s not to love about subscription boxes? They are the ‘from me, to me’ gift we all deserve… with an element of surprise thrown in.
Dubai beauty buffs are spoilt for choice with so many monthly subscription boxes in the market that are dedicated to makeup, skincare and general wellness. If you are looking for a makeup option, Doll Me Up is a great choice as this monthly box only caters to high-end luxury brands at very affordable rates.
Unboxing a Doll Me Up box is a treat in itself. Each box comes with 5 different products from different brands. Here’s a look at what I found in mine this month:
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I’m a sucker for great highlighters. Of all the highlighters I’ve had the pleasure of trying, my unbiased favorite is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder in C-Pop. It’s a universally flattering shade, and no one seems to get the formulation as spot-on as Becca. Their pressed powder highlighters are so beautifully milled with just the right amount of believable sheen, and they never expose unsightly pores as many ‘sparklier’ counterparts tend to do.
Whilst the C-Pop has this gorgeous pale pink champagne hue that sits well for day to night, the Gold Pop shade is all out glamorous and perfect for that Summer Diva look.
Lucky me! I got sent the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Gold Pop, in all 3 formulations; liquid, cream and pressed powder. How do these formulations differ, and which one suits your beauty needs? Read on for more.
