The Power of Make-up: Faux Freckles

   The Power of Make-up; How I change Emma’s look from flawless to flawsome! Some of you might have noticed that I mainly work with Emma, the reason behind that is first, she’s my favourite girl. Second, she has phenomenal facial features. Third, she’s an upcoming model here in Dubai and lastly, I want to show her face in different types of make-up and see how make-up could change one’s look. In this shoot, I’ve done a very simple & fresh make-up but I’ve also added faux freckles on her. Yes! those freckles aren’t real. 🙂 Photo Credits to: Enchanté Studios Comment below if you liked her look and if you want to suggest a different look for Emma. xxx Louise Monique

Best Skincare Products Ever!

So Yes, I went back to @bootsmiddleeast and hoarded some more products to try. I’ve always wanted to try @nuxe_middle_east products and I thought, this is the perfect time to try this. I have problems with dark spots so the Nuxe girl at boots recommended the Nuxe White range to me. I got four products from this range. 1. Brightening Purifying Foam 2. Brightening Moisturizing Lotion 3. Intensive Whitening Dark Spot Correcting Serum 4. Brightening Renewing Night Cream . This range is just amazing. I actually only bought 2 products at first but I needed to go back for the serum and night cream! Results are visible after using it twice. If you haven’t tried #NuxeMiddleEast products yet, you’re seriously missing out!💁🏻

Behind the Scenes with The Bridal Showroom

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity of working with The Bridal Showroom and Peach & Pink for a styled bridal photoshoot. I loved working with The Bridal Showroom because the owner, Diala is very professional and hands on with her business. Diala with the help of Lana styled the whole photoshoot, they had a clear direction of their vision and executed it perfectly. On my end, I had two canvasses to work on. I played around on different looks such as, vintage, boho, classic & modern. The two models have very different facial features which gave me the opportunity to come up with different hair & make-up looks for different styles of the gown. I love how the model’s faces could transition from a soft bridal look to something fierce and edgy. The Photographer, Suzette was very easy to work with. She knows how to execute Diala and Lana’s vision and she is open for suggestions and recommendations. It was a great experience working with the whole team! Here are some behind the scenes photos taken …
