Artist, designer and educator, Sarah Alagroobi shares her top beauty picks.
Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30 Dhs190 MILK Makeup available at sephora.ae
I don’t really wear foundation, I gravitate towards tinted moisturisers, BB creams and lightweight foundations that can be thinned out so there is barely any product and this tint provides that natural glow.
Skin Illusion Dhs216 Clarins available at bloomingdales.ae
I like my skin to breathe so I’ll use a drop of any of the products below as a base layer after I’ve moisturised. This product gives a beautiful glow without masking your skin’s natural beauty.
Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation Dhs265 Dior
For a vibrant complexion, this foundation helps maintain a healthy radiance.
Eye Tone – Intra Dhs85 Hindash available at ounass.ae
Ever since Hindash introduced me to using brown pencils instead of black for a diffused wing, I’ve never looked back.
Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment 50g Dhs25 Aquaphor available at iherb.com
For a clean look, this ointment protects any dry or cracked skin giving me a smooth surface.
Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer Dhs105 Fenty Beauty available at amazon.ae
To create a visual harmony throughout my face, I use this luminizer which works as a dewy highlighter for my lips.
Pinkgasm Beauty Light Wand Dhs147 Charlotte Tilbury
For blush I create a concoction of so many brushes and depending on the mood I will either overly indulge my face in pinkie cream blushes where Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Light Wand in Pinkgasm takes centre stage.
Thé Noir 29 Eau de Parfum 50ml for Dhs870 Le Labo available at selfridges.com
I adore this perfume so much as it sort of operates as an ambassador of perfumes. It has such a distinct scent that carries through in any given space.
Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Dhs185 Fenty Beauty
I lightly dust the apples of my cheeks with Fenty Killawatt Ginger Binge and prefer cream blushes as opposed to powder as it glides into the skin better.
Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil Dhs154 One Love Organics available at credobeauty.com
This is my go-to cleanser, it is so gentle on the face and eyes and packed with enzymes to break down proteins to remove makeup and for a nourishing cleanse.
Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Dhs70 Black Girl Sunscreen available at ulta.com
This product takes into account melanin production, hyperpigmentation and white cast in the formula. They have designed it to where their main demographic is targeted people of colour. This is important for many reasons, mainly for representation and products that really benefit those who have a variety of skin tones, types and textures.
Megashade Breakout-Proof SPF Serum Dhs175 Zitsticka available on lookfantastic.ae
This sunscreen is so lovely be- cause of the SPF50 and it melts into the skin like butter without leaving a greasy white cast. The downfall to a lot of sunscreens is that it layers on the skin when combined with makeup but this product doesn’t do that at all. It is definitely a must-have in any kit, especially for acne-prone skin.
