Dr. Doris Day is a board certified dermatologist based in NYC that has won so many awards naming her one of the world’s best skincare expert! She’s an absolute boss in every sense of the word, which is why I had to sit down with her when I found out she was coming to Dubai!

I hope you guys enjoy watching this video and learn a few things you can start using!!
Hey My Loves! So my baby sister Mona had a reeeeally important event and she asked me to do her makeup – so in true blogger style, I decided to make a video out of it!

Hey My Loves!! So I tried something different today…I used the new Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipsticks on my eyes!! I am obsessed with their wide range of colors (especially their blue ones!) so decided to see how I could create a cool makeup look using them. Let me know what you guys think! Have you ever tried lipstick as eyeshadow before?

Real talk, who wouldn’t trust celeb stylist Jen Atkin with their hair? Exactly. So when our hair needs serious TLC post-color, we turned to her Ouai Hair Treatment Masques for some damage control. Here’s what we thought:
What it is: This pack comes with eight treatment doses (meant to be used twice a week), to restore and heal hair in a matter of minutes:
What it does: Uses ingredients like artichoke leaf extract and jojoba to nourish and repair strands. Just apply to hair, comb through with your fingers, wait 5 to 10 minutes, and then rinse out.
What we liked: Our ends were seriously parched from over-styling and color. This mask is bringing it back to life. After one use, we noticed much softer, bouncier ends without feeling the least bit weighed down. We also like to apply to our ends before a long gym session so we’re ready to go once we hit the shower. The light floral scent that makes the treatment feel extra luxurious.
What we didn’t like: The amount felt right for shorter hair, but we can imagine it takes more than one if you have super long and thick hair. Let us know if you tried it in the comments and what you thought too!
Price: $32 for 8 packets
We’ve tried peel-off masks before, but what we were most interested in this one was testing its claims to give you “more toned, sexy contours” (their words, not ours).
What it is: A brush-on, peel-off treatment mask to firm and tone skin.
What it does: Helps to lift, tone, and tighten skin.
What we liked: We loved that this comes with a mini brush that easily spreads this gooey, marshmallow-like mask over our skin. Just make sure you avoid the eye area, brows, and hair line since it might be tricky to peel off from those areas. This mask felt otherworldy – it could have been that it sets to a brilliant, Tin Man-chrome, or maybe the light coconut-ey scent got to us. Whatever the case, after 30 minutes, the mask easily (and not painfully!) peels off to what we felt after a few uses was a brighter, tighter result.
What we didn’t like: Admittedly, it took a few go’s for us to really appreciate it (and because we might have mistakenly tried to wash it off the first time instead of peeling it off – it is water-soluble so it did dissolve but after a few minutes of scrubbing over the sink). Our skin did feel more behaved and glowing after peeling off – we’re not entirely sure if it was the silver residue from the chrome. That said, “sexy contours” might be overstating it. Basically, don’t expect miracles but it is a good mask for a weekly reset…and your next Instagram pic.
Hey My Loves!! I have been getting so many requests from you guys to do a natural 5 Minute Makeup Look, and to be honest, this was REALLY hard for me!! You guys know how much I love makeup, a good contour and my lashes, so trying to do my makeup without it was really stepping out of my comfort zone. But you guys asked for it, so here it is! Let me know what videos you guys wanna see next!!
We haven’t made our affections for makeup artist Hrush a secret. But there’s good reason for it – girl knows beauty. Understandably, when she partnered up with Tarte to come out with her own mini-palette, it sold out quicker than you can say Styled by Hrush. Good news is, you can still purchase it at Ulta.com. Here’s what we thought about her limited-edition palette:
What it is: A palette co-created with celebrity makeup artist Hrush Achemyan containing three shimmery shades (including a limited-edition white gold one), three matte shadows, and one peachy-pink blush.
What we liked: We loved the pigmented colors that you can use matte for a sophisticated day time look, or blend with the lusters to amp it up as a liner or shadows for an evening look. The colors are a universally-flattering combo for all-over, crease, and highlight shades. We love to use the peachy “Pinch” for everyday, the brown “Kitty” for our crease, and the decadent “Royal” purple as a hint of liner. The shimmery “Bliss” and “Smitten” add a nice pop of bling that’s so very Hrush. Not to mention, a peachy-pink blusher that gives us the prettiest flush to our cheeks. It has personality, with still very wearable colors. The size is perfect to throw in your purse — the sleek faux-crocodile leather embossed cover even makes it look like a mini-wallet.
What we didn’t like: What’s not to like?

Hey My Loves! If you already got your Rose Gold eyeshadow palette, I hope you’re loving it!! The shadows are super pigmented and the more I use it, the more I find different ways to apply them! As a fun challenge, I did a full face using ONLY the colors in the palette. Besides eyeshadows, the colors can double as contour, brow liner, lipstick, blush, highlighter, and eyeliner! Check it out in this quick video and let me know what you think :

Ex. “My face is looked extra snatched when I wear my hair up.”
“I used Benefit’s new Ka-Brow pencil, and my eyebrows are looking snatched.”
