QUEEN OF SPADES TOOK ME ON A VOYAGE DU CARNAVALThursday 6th October 2016 the beautiful Lamya Abedin opened Arab fashion week with her Carnival Themed Fashion Show. Simply elegance. She not only opened the show but bust onto the runway with a creative and amazing collection of high fashion !! The Bohemian dressed , very tall models, floated down the runway to very cool and contemporary carnival music. To compliment the show the smell of popcorn filled the room as there were popcorn stations and candy floss stations to worked so well for the collection and were all there for the customers and guests to take advantage of. it made us all get into the spirit of, "Carnival". Fun and sophisticated comes to mind. Her designs and use of materials pushed the boundaries of design. They were such mixture that blended together so well. To close her show her beautiful little daughter also cam outer confidently and elegantly onto the runway holding one of the models hands so sweetly. just have a look at the photos and you melt at the sweetness, delicate little girl in her gown made by her mothers hands.

Why are we using makeup ? How to apply your makeup in 10 minutes? What are the most useful tricks for a quick and good makeup? All these questions were answered on our live demonstration. We started with a light daytime look discussing about choosing the right colour of foundation, application techniques, contours and highlights and setting the foundation. After this step we were giving a brief description about filling up and defining the eyebrows. Eye makeup - easy steps for a daytime application using all neutral colours Mascara application giving a final touch for the eyes How to apply the blusher and where to place it exactly, which colours are for the daytime look. Lipliner and lipstick application with a touch of a gloss was our finishing step on our lovely model. Now we gave a situation to our Ladies of usual everyday situation of no having time for makeup touchup for an evening time. We added a bit of drama on the eyes, cheeks and lips. Just in few steps you can easily transform your makeup from a daytime to a glamorous evening look. Try to concentrate on the eyebrows, eyes, cheeks and lips. Add more colour and more darker colour on the eyes, make the blusher stronger and add a darker lipstick on the lips its that easy to achieve an evening look. Don't forget to follow our blog and to contact us for makeup courses and makeup consultations. Tun in for our next addition.So we should call it the "Feel Good Factor”A woman’s mood can change in an instant if hey look good, they will fell good. If they feel good they will smile and radiate energy thats contagious and positive and can only be a great thing!Make up is a very important contributory factor to helping this.I will give young scenario.If a lady feels a little tired and has no make up on and she catches herself in the mirror, she will shy away an feel even worse than she looks and hence will have a lower tone on the phone and not project any positive vibes to clients or even friends.On the other side, if she has make up on and she catches herself in the mirror and she looks good! she will feel good and radiate that energy to potential clients giving positive vibes throughout the office and can only be good for self esteem and for business.So the solution is, to make the most out of yourself every day to feel good and this is also goof for your health, marriage and self esteem!You agree?
