Black & White with Paula

It’s fascinating how the internet and social media connect people all over the world. In our case, social media became a tool to meet up and work with like-minded & creative people. Paula is London-based model and blogger traveling to Dubai for a week, she approached me for a collab shoot and I’d be making a mistake if I say no to that beauty. For this shoot, I opted for a natural makeup that emphasizes her natural beauty. We just wanted everything authentic and as raw as it could get, in fact, these photos are edited minimally – no skin retouching done. My good friend and one of my most trusted photographers, Joem perfectly captured Paula’s personality- candid, fun and a natural stunner.

Product Review: Giella Eye M Glam Mineral Highlighter

I’ve recently joined Giella Custom Blend Cosmetics as their first Brand Ambassador in the UAE. I am thrilled to be part of the Giella family because it’s a brand that I truly believe in. Before I was even approached to become a brand ambassador, Eye M Glam is already my go-to highlighter. As a beauty writer, I promised myself that I will only recommend and promote products that I truly believe in. I don’t see the point of promoting something that you don’t actually like, it just doesn’t make sense to me. Giella products are hand-crafted with ingredients selected to customize the perfect product just for you. Products can be customized for allergies including nut oils and butters. She stands behind her products as being the finest in quality, texture and shade selections. All GIELLA products use the most pure ingredients that can  be found giving their makeup real skincare benefits. Giella is based and manufactured in the US but they deliver internationally and all the products are available online. All Giella products are cruelty free, non-pore …

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
