In Your Wildest Fantasy

Pat McGrath has been named ‘the most influential makeup artist of all times’, and while being credited as the creative mind behind runway looks for Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Galliano and Dior, it’s no wonder her imagination has received world-wide recognition. When I actually decided to study makeup, she was part of the reason! I think it’s amazing how much she can transform models into walking, living art! Check out some of my favorite work from Pat McGrath!

Elle’s Dubai Debut

ELLE ARABIA | VOL 1 | APRIL 2010
By Huda Kattan

Tired of paying 39 AED (over $10) for imported Elle magazines from the US or UK? I know I am! Luckily, the people at Elle understand our concerns, hence the release of the newest addition to the Elle family, Elle Arabia! I am not going to lie, I had some reservations when I first glimpsed the cover of the magazine. I am a huge fan of Elle US and UK and I wasn’t sure if this magazine was going to be able to keep up to the standards of this incredibly iconic magazines.  Did they deliver? Oh yes!

The new Elle Arabia, is filled with haute editorials, latest trends and accessories, and yup, eye-catching makeup all straight off the runway! And at 15 AED per magazine, what more could we ask for?!

Proven: Fish Oil for Glossy Locks!

BEAUTY TIP | SHINY HAIR
by huda heidi kattan

I’ve never been one to have gorgeous hair, and frankly, I’ve always been determined to have it! I knew that somewhere out there, there was a magic product that some genius somewhere created that would turn my coarse frizzy-prone hair into commercially silky hair that, possibly, moves in slow motion–I just had no idea that that genius was God and His magic product was fish oil!

We’ve all heard it, Omega-3 fatty acids make your hair look super-silky, but has anyone tried it? Yup! I have! I seriously cannot believe the difference in my hair from taking Fish Oil tablets every day. Not only will it give you brilliantly glossy locks, but it will also help increase growth for your hair and improve radiance to your skin! I’m not going to lie, I hate fish more than anything and the thought of fish oil in a tablet more than mortifies me. HOWEVER, this is really not bad. The taste only last a couple of seconds and is totally bearable! Honestly, this is the easiest way to becoming a sexier you, that you must try it!

Bronzed Beauty

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

Deflate Puffy Eyes!

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!

  1. Soak two cotton balls in witch hazel and place each one over eyes for 15 minutes.
  2. Place two black tea bags in warm water and place over eyes for 10 minutes.
  3. 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.

HAUTE Editorial

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!
