PERIOD MAKEUP | 1960
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Of all my favorite periods for makeup, the early 1960’s has always been my favorite.  Strong brows, spikey lashes, heavy use of eyeshadow, with nude lips with a dash of glitter–so sultry.  It’s no wonder why these iconic beauties are some of the most memorable of all time. Simply put, their beauty is timeless. I’m thinking of doing a tutorial on this period makeup, let me know if you guys are interested!

By Huda Heidi Kattan

Gisele Bundchen seriously could not look any hotter in Vogue Korea for May 2010.  In one of this seasons hottest trend, army green, Gisele works it with some very hard to get poses.

Work it mama!Continue reading

BEAUTY TRUTH | BEAUTY SLEEP
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Ok, we all know that sleep, sometimes referred to as “beauty sleep” is a huge determinant to good health and of course, beauty, but how many of us actually get enough of our z’s? I admit it! I am totally guilty of not getting my share of rest! In fact, I’m lucky if I get a good 6 hours on some nights. So just what are the affects of not catching enough shut eye?Continue reading

Tricks are For Kids

PHOTOSHOP | MADONNA | VUITTON
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Yes we’ve all heard of the wonders of Photoshop, but have we all seen the evidence? My favorite picture is Madonna modeling for Louis Vuitton–not only did they make her look young, fresh, and alive, but check out how they smoothed out her muscle tone to make her look more feminine and busty.  Here are some of my favorite Photoshopped pictures. It’s amazing what a “little” photoshop can do!

Things That Make You Go…Ooohh!

ENTERTAINER | BODY BOOK
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Being an economic shopper, I am always looking for the best deal, no matter where I am.  Having used the Entertainer before, I know these books have the ability to save you incredible amounts of money.  However, I never thought about purchasing the body book.  If you are a spa-lover or salon-whore, then you MUST buy this book.  Not only is it almost double the size as it was in previous years, meaning almost EVERY spa/salon in the UAE (predominantly Dubai)  is in this book, but the prices is very reasonable this year. At 225 AED, enjoy more manis, pedis, facials, and massages than you can handle.

Do Something Beautiful

Haiti needs our help! It is estimated that over 100,000 people are dead and many are injured without means for survival. A broken bone in Haiti, can unfortunately mean death by infection. Without the proper medical attention more Haitians will surely die and more children will be left without parents to care for them.

We can make a difference; hopeforhaitinow.org is an organization that dedicates 100% of funds raised to relief efforts. For as little as 5 cents (US), you can save a life.

Donate! Nothing is more beautiful than saving a life!
