I attended a basic make up course a while back by The Makeup Manual guru Mai Almoayed.  This is a must workshop for all girls.  Even if you know a thing or two about makeup and how to apply, you will still leave with a wealth of knowledge! The amount of hand written notes I jotted down was pages long.  She goes through the complete basics, pre application, explanation of brushes, tips of the trade and so much more.  Makeup Forever has a stand at her place where we got to purchase products and have her guide us with exactly what is suitable for our skin, tone and matching the right foundation colour.  I am really looking forward to taking her advance class and this girl is always fully booked mashallah!! Her classes tend to be over full (limited no. of seats per class) and theres a waiting a list.

Now here’s the good news for all you Dubaian chicas; The Makeup Manual is coming to Dubai!! Don’t miss this opportunity she’s not only talented but a real sweetheart.  Follow her on @themakeupmanual and if you have any makeup related questions she always tries her best to answer her followers as prompt as she can.

The Makeup Manual coming to Dubai soon.. stay tuned for dates.

I am loving this new local Bahraini label, ‘august’ by designer duos Maha Al Mulla and Amina Saif .  The label embraces all things feminine, classy, elegant with a modern twist!  This beautiful Spring/Summer collection celebrates dressing chic for all occasions.  This label had me at a heartbeat just with the nude colours but combine nude with sheer flowy fabric, pastels, sequins and cleverly cut out sleeves and I am hooked!

The beauty behind the S/S12 lookbook is not just the beautiful clothes but also the local talent they collaborated with:
