HUDA BEAUTY in all its glory.

The new Rose Gold Textured palette has been all the talk in the industry since the release, however it’s gotten some backlash and undesirable feedback. Here’s my take on it all:

The Huda palette is all that everyone wishes it to be, they simply may not realize it; the matte colours are incredible pigmented and the textured shadows are simply to die for. The matte shadows are dry, opposed to a soft, cream like powder. For many, this will instantly be more difficult to use and to blend. The upside to a shadow with a dryer consistency is that there is likely less fallout and they colour payoff is amplified. The textured shadows are beautiful and they’re not trying to be anything other than exactly what they are.  HUDA actually recommends to apply these textured shadows with your finger; this is not uncommon for highly textured shadows and metallics. As a makeup artist, it’s common to use your finger tips as a complementary tool to a brush.

The colour range in the palette are truly beautiful, I feel that HUDA did a fantastic job at colour selection.

Overall, I’m thrilled to have this palette and it’s already created some of my favourite looks!

Paris. The perfect setting to get whisked away to for a romantic photoshoot!
Rupi and her fiancee, joined by her sister and friend had the opportunity to capture some beautiful moments while sightseeing along the beautiful streets of Paris.  What a terrific idea! This photo features the Arc de Triomphe as the backdrop.
Paris Hair and Makeup -Rupi described her style vision and from there, I created her soft, elegant, bride-to-be hair and makeup style. Her dress was a showstopper, so we didn’t want the hair and makeup to compete, but rather to complement the entire look. The style was kept in place by using a dry spray as well as a flexible working spray. Half pulled back, with the rest curled, I left some soft pieces falling to frame the face. I used MAKE UP FOR EVERS pro artist shadows to create the softy smokey look, which included colours such as; champagne, cool mauve tones and just a touch of black. Keeping the focus on the eyes, we used a soft, cool tonedblush and a the perfect blush toned lipstick, finished by a gloss.

From Gown to Gloss, this beautiful bride to be was all set for her shoot! – Big thanks to Rupi!

More photos of this beautiful couple and their romance story still to come!

In a city full of lights & luxury, this jewel toned lipstick feels right at home.  Even in Dubai, my favourite colour to wear is Toronto’s @bitebeauty new colour in Kir Royale. So lush, I love it!  It reminds me of the perfect ruby colour.  But which lipstick is right for you?

Do you find yourself standing at makeup counters stare in bewilderment at the lipsticks?  Choosing the ‘right’ shade of lipsticks or gloss doesn’t have to be so complicated and overwhelming. 

My Trick to Finding Your Best ‘every day’ Shade

I focus on enhancing natural beauty for an every day look. The most flattering way to do this, is to select a lipstick that is one or two shades darker than your natural lip colour.

My Trick to Testing Lipstick

We’ve all bought lipstick that we thought would look great, only to discover at home that…yikes, this is not what you wanted at all. If you’re not an impulse buyer, I’m sure you’ve tried lipstick on the back of your hand in an attempt to see what the colour will look like.  While this can work well to discover the texture of lipstick (smooth, creamy, dry etc…) the back of your hand isn’t able to give you a fair read on the colour. Our lips have that great pigment built in, which will ultimately manipulate the colour we see once the lipstick on, whereas our hands have no ‘lip’ pigment.  TIP: Try applying lipstick to your fingertip or a pinker part of your palm. I find this the next best thing to lips. 

Dark Shades?

Lips come in all different shapes and sizes. If your lips are on the thinner side and you’re looking to make them appear larger, stick to light-to-medium shades. Creamy lipsticks and tinted glosses are also great because the sheen and gloss catches the light, creating the illusion of plumpness.

How to Pick the Right Shade of Red

I can’t tell you how many women tell me they can’t wear red lipstick. I happily correct them each time. Red is timeless and beautiful and there’s a colour out there for everyone, it’s simply a matter of shade. The secret lies in selecting the correct undertones.  As with anything, there are always exceptions to the rule, however the following are great guidelines to follow if you’re unsure:

Skin with rose (pink) undertones, pairs great with cherry reds (cooler blue undertone).  Skin with olive/ivory (yellow) undertones, pairs great fire-engine red (warmer orange undertone).

How to Pick the Right Shade of Nude

The prettiest nude colour (in my opinion) is one that is a slightly more vibrant or a deeper tone than your skin tone. If you’re very fair, select a colour with a hint of pink, like. For those with olive and darker skin, aim for something more of a sandy beige.

The sun kissed the sky goodnight and with that, the buildings were left to be illuminated with colourful lights, which was the perfect backdrop for this lovely couple. Behind is the Burj Al Arab, located on a man made island, connected to Jumeriah. I wanted to create a high glam, sophisticated look to match the setting and wardrobe. I swept the hair up and added in the beautiful headpiece that Doris had. I opted for a smokey eye to add a little bit of drama and paired it a classic red lip. I used one of my favourite red lipsticks, MAKE UP FOR EVER’s in the colour ‘Mat 8.’

Thank you toDoris & Anthony, it was such a pleasure to work with you!

Paris. The city of love. A perfect setting for love, vows, wedding gowns and of course, a custom hair and makeup look.

I had the pleasure of working with this beautiful bride, Louise, to create a most elegant and sophisticated look. The wedding took place at Chateau de Vallery, which is a picturesque spot, located south of Paris. Everything about this wedding was based on elegance and for that reason, I created a elegant twist on the classic chignon. Adding a bit of volume and having side swept pieces that were tucked away and melted in with the style. The makeup was bold, yet understated. With a mix of neutrals, smoked out on the edges, left Louise’s eyes to steal the show. I kept the completion looking natural yet flawless, which pops of colour on the cheeks and lips. What an absolutely stunning bride!

For the bridal party, I created individual looks for each of them. They wore a soft dusted rose gown, so we kept colours quite soft with a focus on the eyes. Thanks to my terrific artist assistant Silviana!

Working with Louise, her family and her bridal party was simply a delight. A very big and happy congratulations to Louise and Marc, thank you so much for having me as a part of your special day!
