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.

Tweezerman’s Swarovski Edition Tweezers

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.
