Burberry Festive Collection

Nothing screams “Christmas is coming!” louder then Burberry’s Festive Film which celebrates 15 years of Billy Elliot with an amazing cast! It really got me in the festive season and then seeing the holiday beauty collection was just the icing on the cake.

I love the packaging and the details, Christmas is always my favourite time to buy make-up as so many brands create limited edition items. It’s the best time to add some glitz to your make-up bag and this year I found one of my favourite products yet!! I am so in love with Burberry’s Gold Glow Luminising Powder, not cheap at 300 AED but well worth it. It gives the most gorgeous glow and makes you smell delicious as it is laced with the notes of My Burberry perfume.

The collection is available at Areej and selected Burberry retailers.

Essie Cashmere Collection

Comfy In Cotton



The launch of Essie’s Cashmere collection at the Belle Femme Salon was amazing, the colours were so on point for Autumn. It’s satin-matte finish blends a durable Essie polish with a mattifying iridescence for a supersoft effect that is truly one-of-a-kind. It’s a creative alternative to classic gloss for a very chic look. Nails take on the appearance of a matte surface with a subtle flash of colour for a texture that‘s never been seen before. I opted for the shade Comfy in Cashmere which I loved so much I brought it home with me!

I really enjoyed chatting to Rita Remark, the Global Lead Educator dictates which trends will appear at New York Fashion Week and got me up to speed. She said subtle colours are in with cut-out or block patterns, for example a Nude with a triangle left unpainted, “it’s just all really super simple and all about negative space”

Rita brings a wonderful combination of energetic charisma along with an easy, accessible approach. Her polished expertise has earned her a place in the spotlight since 2011, when her early editorial work led her to become essie’s Lead Nail Artist in Toronto. In this role, Rita oversaw the development of the most anticipated and innovative nail designs on the runways at Toronto Fashion Week. From there, it was only upwards and onwards for Rita as she went on to be part of essie’s Global Team for New York Fashion Week, lending her dazzling artistry and ideas to the event. Now, as Essie’s Global Lead Educator, with an impressive portfolio as well as a finger on the pulse of the latest trends, she drives professional training on brand launches around the world.

The Essie Cashmere collection is available from this week in salons such as Belle Femme Dubai and Essie retailers in the region.

Tweezerman’s Swarovski Edition Tweezers

824d836b75ab02b2_org

With the festive season looming there is no greater time to add some glitz and glam to your make-up bag. Its always good to be equipped with these beauties, whether its to pluck that stray eye-brow hair or if you have long nails like me they can be really handy for grasping fiddly items…from nail gems to sim cards, my tweezers are multi-functional.

Beauty Tips:

  • Always tweeze one hair at a time in direction of hair growth. For expert brow shaping, use the broad side of the slant ad the tip of the higher side for precision work.
  • Clean only the tweezer tips with an alcohol-moistened pad after each use. Clean crystals by rubbing lightly with a clean, smooth cloth. Do not soak tweezer body in water/solution or heat-sterilize. As with any fine crystal, handle with care. When not in use, keep in case to avoid dulling or breaking by scratching against or dropping on hard surfaces.

The Tweezerman Swarovski slant tweezer is available at Areej, Bloomingdales, Harvey Nichols, Tavola and Salam Studios and Stores across the GCC for AED 195.
