Giorgio Armani Beauty


Hello,

Today ‘s post is dedicated to those who love makeup and are interested in the latest trends in the beauty world, I got an invitation regarding a master class hosted by Giorgio Armani Regional Makeup Artist Raja Daniel … since am a great fan of Giorgio Armani cosmetics I thought not to miss it!

The makeup Artist shared great tips on how to apply makeup for both daily and special occasions , he was very much focused on how to use makeup to highlight your beauty rather than transform or hide your features.

I personally , see makeup as a tool to highlight your beauty features believing that every woman owns her unique kind of beauty , its just that some arn’t yet aware  , and don’t know how to present it.

The special thing about GA Cosmetic products , I find that all their products are set to high quality and claim what it states!

The products that I use so far are the under eye master corrector #2 , a bit orangy , I use it instead of a concealer as I see it more natural  , and the sheer bronzer (sun fabric)  #400 , gives a sun kissed  look ,and finally their glowy sheer foundation which I only use in special occasions but does what it claims .

As much as I love makeup , but I care more about my skincare , so I try not to put much, drink water as  much to keep hydrated …and why not ? Believing in that “less is more”

Here are some snapshots from the event that happened to be at the Four Seasons Hotel,Kuwait :

The Primer Review

1                                                                                                2

Today I will be sharing my feedback on those 2 primers , again my feedback is a personal one which means that what I have experienced may not reflect yours … but from time to time I enjoy sharing my experience to help people who are always in search of the best products out there …

Here you go :

  • Primer 1  is Smashbox (PHOTO FINISH) PURPLE :

I loved this product put it on after the moisturiser, give it a 10 min to dry up then put whatever you want baby cream or a foundation  or wear it alone , it basically does what it claims:

  1. Reduces the appearance of pores instantly
  2. Non drying formula
  3. Absorbs oil  and keeps makeup on up to 8 hours
  4. Gives a flawless feel and look

My Rating : 9/10

 

Primer 2 is Benefit (The POREfessional ) Green :

This product was okay , it doesn’t do the job fully , although it gives you a  beautiful feel on your skin , but the  appearance of pores somehow shows , here what I noticed about this product :

  1. Lightweight
  2. Velvet feeling on the skin
  3. Translucent
  4. Amazing scent

My Rating : 7/10

 

 

*Friendly Reminder : This review reflects my personal experience and the products reaction with my skin tone (Fair , combination skin)and texture. It may reflect you and it may not, just a friendly share! Hope I helped anyone out there searching for the perfect primer 😉

Yours sincerely,

Midnight Recovery by Kiehl’s


kiehls review

Its been a few month now since I have tried this night serum , it was my first ever product from Kiehl’s , sure I have heard a lot about this brand , but I wasn’t aware of how beneficial its products are … so let me tell you my feedback on this  miracle , how many of us don’t sleep enough , that you wake up in the morning have a tired look , this product did the job! it made me look as if I had the best night sleep !

My personal feedback  on the product:

Pros :

  • Suits all skin type
  •  It has a lavender scent, very relaxing
  •  Luminous skin in the morning
  • Heals the acne scars
  • It lasts almost 3 month

 

Cons :

  • Not an anti-aging product
  • The scent is strong and somehow discomforts the eye

 

Hope it was helpful , again it’s my personal feedback 🙂

Kind wishes,

Nora

The Exotic Scent


PERFUME 2016

 

Here are my set of perfumes that I mix for those who are interested  …

Many people randomly ask’s me about what kind of scent I have on and they seem to wait for one scent reply …  its always hard to answer since my exotic smell comes from the (Mix) I do … I simply mix Arabian scents with European ones that I like and voilà I create a total new amazing scent, ie. East meets West! magic mix ! also let me not forget to mention the wooden Bokhour Scent (winter time) also has its special role! Spray a small bit from each perfume!and enjoy the magic mix you get.

Reminder: Each body reacts differently with each scent.. so get a tester or try them on before purchasing.

*Kind Tip: Remember don’t store perfumes in your bathroom, humidity will break down the perfume and lessen the quality of the fragrance. Instead, store them in cool place and away from windows.

Be your own Makeup Artist


Today’s post is about how to learn the secret tips and magic of Beauty and its relation to makeup … so we thought of having a 1-1 session with the Kuwaiti MUA Sebybeaute

Beautiful makeup is art ,and to be able to attain a masterpiece you should somehow have an interest, passion and the skill to learn more about it. Of-coarse each part of the world has its own special standard of “beauty” . .  and even you ? So if you get to know what you want then you are almost there to attain the look you are after or want.

Personally in terms of application and techniques I believe in the saying “Less is more” and  that each of us is beautiful in someway and feature , we just need to know and defined it by simple make up.

*Remember , This important Tip: 

You need to understand your skin type condition , based on that you get to buy and apply the makeup products.

***What suits a friend doesn’t always work with you too.

Here’s a visual Manual of the tools of the trade (the brushes):

Understanding all brush-set role will take you to another level of proficient makeup.
