Kuwaiti content creator and media influencer Fajer Fahad shares her daily beauty and skincare rituals.
Talk us through your morning routine.
I like to do pulling with coconut oil – my favourite brand is Dale Audrey, the cinnamon flavour. I usually do this while I dry brush and before I jump in the shower. For my face, I alternate between MZ Skin Cleanse and Clarify Cleanser and Augustinus Bader cleansing balm. Depending on where I am in the world I alternate between MZ skin bright and perfect vitamin C corrective and Shani Darden retinol.
And how about your evening routine?
I like to use Elemis Collagen Balm as a cleanser then tone with Sisley Lotion Tonique au Fleurs, I use the La Mer eye cream and finish off with 111 Skin Rose Gold Radiance Booster or the MZ Skin Placenta Serum.
What can always be found in your makeup bag?
In my makeup bag I always a La Prairie eye and lip duo, KKW lip pencil and Augustinus Bader lip balm.
Are you a fan of masks?
I love masks! I use 111 Skin, MZ Skin and Summer Fridays jet lag mask.
What three makeup products can you not live without?
Mac Spice lip liner, Nars liquid concealer and Anastasia Beverly Hills bronzer.
How would you describe your relationship with makeup?
I try to use make up as little as possible during the day. I will use mascara, highlighter and shiny lip balm, whereas I love a full glam for the evening, always trying to play with colour if I can at night.
How has your relationship with makeup evolved?
As I have matured I realised the importance of great skin and taking care of my skin. The better my skin is, the better my glam looks. Also, it’s so important to completely remove makeup before you sleep and work out.
Let’s talk fragrance. What are you loving at the moment?
I love a great body spray and hair perfume. I am finding it a lighter combination then actual perfume. I use La Prairie body spray as well as the Gisou hair perfume.
How do you choose your evening fragrance?
My evening perfume I love to go out with is Byredo – all their scents are amazing. I rotate them depending on my mood.
Talk us through your hair routine.
My hair is very important to me. I try to take care of it as best as possible. I use Christophe Robin lavender oil once a week and follow that with his lemon cleansing balm. I then finish with the milkshake argon mask that I try to leave on for 30 minutes at least on towel-dried hair. I use the Kerastase Densifique ampoules at night as well as their eight-hour magic serum. During the day I apply milkshake argan oil on my ends religiously.
