PRODUCT ALERT | CARGO BRONZER
Of all my must-haves products, bronzer is something that I can almost never go without! Not only does it help give your face a healthy glow, but the right bronzer can dramatically change your entire appearance by shading in the right areas. My all-time favorite bronzer is the Cargo Blu-Ray Bronzer that goes on incredibly smooth and even. This bronzer is so revolutionary that it can be used everyday or even infront of a high-def camera. No matter if you are professional makeup artist, or just an avid makeup-lover, this bronzer is a must in every woman’s kit! Love it!
Available at Sephora’s worldwide (Dubai Mall) or online

PUFFY EYES | BEAUTY TIP
I admit, as much as I preach about beauty, one of the downfalls of a crazy schedule is lack of sleep! Without sleep, your skin will lose its luster and your eyes can puff out to the size of a small country. For those of you who can’t always afford the time to relax, here are some quick tips to deflating those puffy eyes!
- Soak two cotton balls in witch hazel and place each one over eyes for 15 minutes.
- Place two black tea bags in warm water and place over eyes for 10 minutes.
- Use an eye mask like my favorite, Anatomicals Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer (available at Harvey Nichols for 36 AED), and place in fridge, then wear for 20 minutes.
NUMERO MAGAZINE | SIZZLING HOT!
One word came to mind when I saw this photoshoot for Numero Magazine: WICKED!! The makeup in this shoot is just hot! I love it all–the drama with the contrast in the lightness of the skin and dark makeup with the old-Hollywood curls all makes this photo shoot super high-fashion! And if you love photography as much as I do, then you can’t help but appreciate the lighting, which just adds to the drama. All together, this shoot makes my list for super HAUTE editorial!

AMERICA’S NEXT TOP DOLLS
If you are as obsessed with beauty and makeup as much as I am, then you probably already know the low-down on what shows to watch for tips and trends. One of my all-time favorite shows, America’s Next Top Model, never seizes to inspire me and their last shoot left me hungry for more! The makeup was fantasy at it’s best!
It was a star-studded event in Hollywood for the premiere of the Gordon Marshall’s Valentine’s Day, set to hit theaters this Vday. The all-stars cast included Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Fox, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, George Lopez and Julia Roberts, among others.
