Here’s how to do Valentine’s Day in Dubai right

Join us for a look at some potential Valentine’s Day makeup looks from a few of the region’s top makeup artists.


Even if you’re in the anti-Valentine’s camp, these ideas are multi-purpose.

Sharon Drugan


This shot, from a Dior shoot in the September 2017 issue of Emirates Woman, could very easily work for a Valentine’s celebration. With glowing skin, fluffy brows and a matte brown-red lip, Drugan strikes the perfect balance between natural and done-up.

Clean eyes and a red lip is always going to be a sophisticated look.

Huda Kattan

For a more amped-up look, turn to Kattan. The Dubai beauty entrepreneur has gone for a contoured, peachy look with a glossy lip.

Kattan told Into the Gloss last year that her signature style is all about layering products so they really stay, so you can bet there’s a lot going on here.

You can’t deny the romance of a soft smokey eye and big lashes.

Rhea Jacobs

If you’re over a red lip, why not try a red eye? As Jacobs ably demonstrates, it can be just as arresting and gorgeous.

Balanced with full brows and natural lip gloss, it’s a directional look, but one that fits the theme. Particularly lovely on deeper skin tones.

Zareen Shahco

We love this expertly blended smokey eye with a burgundy lip. Shahco has added wispy lashes a pop of highlighter to great effect.

Think of this as the ‘everyday but better’ makeup for when you want to look like yourself, but still feel a bit special.

Sonia Ali

We’ve often tried to recreate this kind of blended-out winged eyeshadow, and never quite nailed it. Maybe this Valentine’s Day is the day we get it right.

Ali’s defined brows, strong highlight and glossy lips finish the look.
