Summer Beauty Must Have’s…

Summer Must Haves

If you live in the Middle East – It feels like it’s summer 10 months out of the year – But as it’s officially summer – Here are my top 3 products that should be in every summer savvy girls handbag!

Vichy Idèal Soleil Bronze Spray

VICHY Ideal Soleil Hydrating Tan Optimiser Spray SPF50

An ultra-light, water resistant milk perfect for people who want protection from the sun but also want an even tan. The best part is it includes the soothing, strengthening and regenerating Vichy Thermal Spa Water meaning it’s a perfect moisturiser SCORE. It’s a spray meaning no more messy clumps of sunscreen! AED 145

Maybelline Dream Sun

Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzer 

For the forever un-tanned such as myself who is sick and tired of being asked if I am sick and tired, due to lack of tan – This product is a dream, come true! Not to heavy on the skin, No orange tinge, long lasting and can be used to contour the face – It’s also affordable What’s not to love?Nothing like an affordable drug store product to carry around AED 75

Pinky Goat

Pinky Goat Faux Mink Lashes

Only over the last 6 months have I found the invention of the beauty Gods – False lashes, you can feel like a 1950’s glamour queen with just a slick of bronzer, lip gloss and a pair of falsies. If you’re a newbie to the whole lash movement watch a few you tube videos and practise. I love these falsies as they are 100% cruelty free (they are faux darling) and they can be worn 20 times!!!! AED 44

 

Get Your Feet Summer Ready…

Solemate Dual Sided Foot Smoother2

I hate feet. Let me just make that statement very clear, if I could cut my feet off and walk on stumps I would. So any new thing to make my tootsies look slightly more attractive I am in there like swimwear!

Well folks I think our summer feet prayers have been answered! Introducing; Tweezerman The Soul Mates Duel Sided Foot File.

This baby features two specialised tools for expert pedicure maintenance: a professional quality, safe-to-the-touch stainless steel micro-file and an equally high quality finishing file. The stainless steel micro-file quickly, easily and very gently removes calluses and rough dead skin, while the finishing file buffs the skin to soft, touchable smoothness.

And it’s pink!!! Hello TAKE MY MONEY!!!!

The pink Sole Mates Dual Sided Foot File are available in Harvey Nichols, Bloomingdales, AREEJ, Tavola, Salam Studios, Boots Pharmacy and Zwilling J.A. Henckels Stores across the GCC for AED 115.

Photoshop In Real Life

Laird+Partners; Shoot Dates: 5/24/12 & 5/30/12

If you are like me, you read glossy fashion magazines and see those skinny, perfect bitches models who are photoshopped within an inch of their life and think “Why Can’t I look half as good as that?” Well until someone invents real time photoshop (until then we will have to make do with Instagram filters) my one go to product which I use when filming or on shoots is… Sally Hansen Air Brush Legs…

It’s like magical foundation for your legs, it covers every unsightly scars, pasty legs, freckles and makes them look almost perfect! It comes in an aerosol can, and you will need your girlfriends help to spray the back of your legs (don’t be that girl that forgets about the back of her legs). Once you spray it on slightly blend with your hands and you are good to go! Now available at Wojooh AED 62 (one can’t put a price on perfection).

*Secret Tip – To stop it from running down your legs due to heat, seal your legs in hair spray before heading out – It’s an old 1950’s Hollywood trick, it locks the product in*
