From the hottest nail shades in New York to the collagen-infused foods in Tokyo and the strange shampoo that’s got Aussies going crazy, it’s not just fashion trends that vary worldwide. Each week, we’ll be introducing the woman’s guide to beauty by the city she lives in.

This week it’s our very own UAE glam squad…

The look:
She is… glamorous at all times and never has an off-duty beauty day. She can make a full-on smoky eye, accessorised with lashings of liner and mascara, work for business meetings in the DIFC. Living in a climate of constant sunshine means feet and hands are always on show, and therefore hers are always as immaculate as she is, with her polish choice co-ordinating with her latest 3.1 Phillip Lim handbag.

The latest beauty craze:

We’re all familiar with using Botox for banishing wrinkles, but it seems that Dubai women are now using it for a completely different purpose: to reshape their nose. Botox and hyaluronic acid are injected into the nostrils to make them appear bigger or down the length of the nose to smooth out bumps. It’s the no-fuss needle nose job.
