Dubai-based digital creator and fashion photographer Muzi Sufi talks to EW about her morning to evening beauty routine and breaksdown her daily self-care rituals.
Talk us through your morning routine.
Cleanser, toner, moisturiser and sunscreen. Absolutely every morning and a large cup of coffee. I try to drink a few glasses of water before leaving the house to kickstart my water intake.
How does your evening routine differ?
I double cleanse every night with a face wash and then micellar water. I use a toner again, followed by a moisturiser and then an eye cream. I end the night with a non-caffeinated green tea.
What are your go-to skincare products?
Tata Harper everything! I have used the whole Superkind range and it’s amazing. I have also started using Codex Beauty’s Balancing range. It’s so good for when your skin is going through a lot and it’s really targeted to limit breakouts!
Which mask is your favourite and why?
I love Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask, I have dry skin so it really helps with deep hydration. I also love Tata Harper’s Superkind Radiance Mask for a quick glow!
How would you describe your day-to-day makeup?
I grew up seeing my mum almost always put it together. Lipstick, a little eye makeup, she made it part of her everyday routine and I loved that. I wear makeup almost daily, and the whole thing takes me about five minutes. I love a dark eye, it adds a lot of definition to my face, and my absolute non-negotiable product used to achieve this is Chanel’s Ombré et Contour eyeshadow liner in 8. It’s my favourite product in my whole makeup drawer, and I’ve used it every day for years. I also love a little colour on the cheeks, and I think matching it with your natural lip shade is a great way to get a very natural blush shade! I use Bobbi Brown’s Slopes.
What beauty product can always be found in your makeup bag?
Always a lipstick, and these days it’s Huda Beauty’s “Girls Trip”. Also, a pretty little comb by Classy Lunar!
Which fragrances are your signature?
I love Creed’s Aventus for her. I’m a citrus girl so it’s an absolute go to. Sometimes I use my husband’s Aventus as well if I want something even stronger! I’m also really loving La Perla’s Possibilities. For evening, I love to choose my outfit first to set the mood, and I almost always grab something that lingers longer in terms of fragrance. I love Gris Dior or Bal D’Afrique by Byredo for the evenings.
Talk us through your haircare routine.
I wash my hair every other day. I try to oil my hair at least twice a month, but sometimes that doesn’t happen. I apply heat on my hair a few times a week which isn’t ideal, but I try to use the Dyson Air Wrap and heat protecting spray to limit the damage. And always Gisou oil drops for the shine.
Which beauty tools can you not live without?
For hair it’s my Dyson Air Wrap. And for the face, although I’m usually in too much of a hurry to add it to my daily routine, the Gua Sha is amazing. Every time I use it, I
remember how instant the results are to depuff and add glow to the complexion!
What was the last beauty product you bought?
K18 leave-in molecular repair hair mask. It’s such an amazing product, I don’t know how they’ve done it, but it’s actually reversing the damage to long hair without having to cut it off. Highly recommend!
What is your ultimate beauty indulgence?
I love to schedule a massage once a month to unwind and feel relaxed. I think it’s important to take the time for yourself and do something that’s just for you.
