MY OOTD: Outfit Ohaila Khan | Jewellery Didi's Jewellery | Make up Sawsan Aloraibi

Hi fashion lovers, I know you haven't heard from me in a long time. 

Which is why, I wanted to share with you all this outfit that Ohaila Khan had sent me to wear for a wedding in Bahrain. Upon receiving it, I realized it was just too beautiful to not shoot in high resolution for you all of you, seeing as I know how much all of you seem to love my Indian Outfit inspiration posts.

So, I shot this look right before attending the wedding. Woke up at 9am and got my hair and make up done, drove to the location which was Jumeirah Royal Saray hotel, got ready for the shoot with my personal jewellery pieces, shot the look for an hour, went home, had a bite and then drove another 45 mins to attend the wedding.

What a long day it was, but its so worth it when you see the outcome of you're work!

What’s In Your NeatFreak’s Pouch - Part 2

Bag featured is The NeatFreak's All Purpose Bag in All Bare Nude:

We are back with the What’s In Your Pouch series. This time we will be talking about one makeup product all women need: Concealer. Yes, those puffy, dark , tired under eyes - whether we had a long day at work or had a late night out with friends - we can’t avoid them.

Lucky for us , we have concealers to come to the rescue- the highly dense formula helps even out skin tone and brighten up the under eye area. Having tried so many, the NARS radiant creamy concealer still beats them all. At NARS, they believe that makeup should enhance your beauty not cover it- and that is what this concealer does.

With its easy to use wand - you just need to dab a few spots under the eye and then even it out with a beauty blender or brush. The great part about this concealer is that it can be used around the face- for any redness, acne, or uneven areas you want to conceal. You can even use this on daily basis, instead of foundation, to create that light, even tone, day look.

Stay tuned for the next part in the series where we will talk about the step after concealer to lock it in for the entire day.

Remember: It is all about finding what is right for your skin.

Valentine Girl

MY OOTD: Dress TFNC London | Earrings, Ring & Wedding Band Devji Since 1950 | Watch Titan | Make up @Masooma_makeup | Hair @waheeda_hairstylist
RAJ'S OOTD: Suit Bobby's Fashions | Watch Titan Edge | Wedding Band Devji Since 1950

Some of you may feel that Valentines Day is another hallmark holiday, however for me it's always been a special day, as its my birth date. So it's always tricky to find the perfect dress to celebrate both the occasions.

Couple of weeks ago I was re-watching the ultimate 90s classic chick flick: Pretty Woman. One of my all time favourite scene is when Julia Roberts and co-star Richard Gere are dolled up to go to the opera. Julia was in this iconic sizzling red Marilyn Vance off shoulder gown and Richard in this fancy Tuxedo.

Inspired by this whole look, and I decided to re-create it with a my own twist. I found a similar maxi dress from TFNC London.

Hot & affordable. I knew immediately that this was the perfect dress to celebrate both birthday and Valentines day. I worked with the famous make up artist Masooma Hashim to create this hollywood glam look.

Raj is wearing a bespoke tuxedo from Bobby's Fashions. Girls, looking to get your man suited up, Bobby's Fashions is where you need to go for a blend of modern luxury and classic style.

Frozen Fairytale

 MY OOTD: Dress Zara Umrigar | Jewellery Devji Since 1950 | Make up Sawsan Aloraibi

Old hollywood glamour, the theme that resonates in Zara Umrigar's intricate collection. This gown feels like its right out of the Oscars Red Carpet. I felt like a celebrity/actress in it, hence the mood of the shoot.

The intricate detailing of the gown had me in awe. All you future-brides or girls wanting to show-stopper gown, look no further than Zara Umrigar! Im obsessed with everything in her collection!

What’s In Your NeatFreak’s Pouch - Part 1

Bag featured is The NeatFreak's Wrap Me Up Bag in Blue Turning on Purple:

In this series of What’s In Your Pouch, we will be looking at the must have items for your skincare and makeup routine. One of the key things we must remember  in order to ensure we get that glowy finished look every time is how we prime our face. Especially with this winter season hitting us hard our face can definitely get very dry. Without adding enough moisture to our skin, the harder it gets for the makeup to go on smoothly and create that smooth look.

After putting on  moisturizer and sunscreen, an important step in the process is to add a good primer. What a primer does is set up your face for makeup. It does this by reducing appearance of pores, fine lines, redness and creates an overall soft, blurred look to the face. This will then help when you add the different layers on your face to go on easier and stay on longer.

One of my top favorites is the Shiseido Glow Enhancing primer. It is oil free, feels like a cream, and you can notice a big difference when not using it before makeup. It also includes SPF.

Remember: It is all about finding what is right for your skin.
