Summer is on the horizon. For us in Dubai that means scorching 50 degrees celsius heat and basically staying in the heavenly relief of air conditioning for four months of the year. But having said that, we’re pretty lucky that we enjoy endless days of pleasant, beach weather sunshine for the rest of the year; so we’re pretty blessed. If it’s still chilly where you are, looking forward to the gorgeous summer makeup collections can help shake off the winter blues.
“Natural” and “understated” aren’t words in my vocabulary where eyelashes are concerned. Thick, black, feathery and dramatic? Yes; much better. Killer lashes are an instant mood lifter. Feeling down in the dumps? Mascara. Looking a little puffy and worse for wear? Mascara. Too many work deadlines and not enough hours in the day? Obviously, mascara! For me, no look is complete without that final coat (or five) of mascara. But for a product that’s so indispensable, finding the right one can be infuriating.
I adore eyebrows; they’re a feature that can make or break your look. Too thin and you’ll look like a 1970’s throwback; too thick and you risk seeming unkempt or severe. After years of over-zealous tweezing, I now suffer from seriously patchy arches. I’ve haven’t mustered up the courage quite yet to try semi-permanent solutions so I make do with the makeup options, many of which are excellent.
