Emirates Woman is proud to welcome renowned makeup artist and entrepreneur, Nina Ubhi, as our new beauty contributor where she’ll be sharing her tips after being in the beauty industry and what she’s observed while working with celebrity-endorsed brands across the sector.

As the summer season is upon us, Nina takes us through her hero beauty picks for the season.

Browns Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

It’s all about exaggerated bold eyes right now and bold colour is just what the Huda Beauty Toffee Brown Obsessions palette can give you!

Pro tip: Use the Yellow shade on the inner corners of your eyes for a pop of colour for a look that’s not OTT.


HUDA BEAUTY - Eyeshadow Palettes

Rose Hermès, Rosy Lip Enhancer

Juicy Spring lips are here to stay but with a less is more approach, and the Rose Hermes collection has all the fresh, muted shades you need.

Pro tip: Dab a little lip colour onto your eyelids and buff in with your finger for a wash of colour.

C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum

Skin prep is just as important as makeup but you can also combine the two for a dewy, luminous glow. The Sunday Riley CEO brightening serum gives you hydration as well as a healthy glow.

Pro tip: Multitask your serum! Mix one drop into your foundation for a ‘healthy glow from within’ look.

Dior Backstage Face & Body Powder-No-Powder

Natural faces took over the catwalks this season and you can achieve the same barely-there look with great coverage. The Dior Powder-No-Powder compacts give a natural veil of colour with buildable coverage that melts into the skin.

Pro tip: Use a darker shade to sculpt different areas of the face like a little on your eyelid socket and just beneath your cheekbones.

New! Brow Cheat Natural Brown

Natural brows are finally here and even if you have sparse brows, you can still cheat your way to full brows. Charlotte Tilbury has a full range of brow products to cater for any type of brow.

Pro tip: Us the brow mascara first and once your brows are in place you can then only fill in the sparse areas to avoid an ‘overdone’ brow.
