Yesterday, Dior had the ultimate makeup showdown at Sephora in The Dubai Mall and selected bloggers were invited to have front row seats. 6 of the top 12 looks were chosen to set foot on the runway to showcase their art in front of 4 judges including Tala Samman from myfashdiary and the international Dior makeup artist. The looks were created by the very talented Sephora makeup artists and the makeup was of course Dior and I was surprised to see how ‘cutting edge’ some of their looks were.

My personal favorites

Clean makeup with a focus on the lashes and green glitter highlights on the corner of the eyes and a nude lip. Love love love…


This look is so cool and new. I’m in love with the fake ‘fan’ lashes. If you want to go fake, go  all out and that’s exactly what the makeup artist did. Notice how the eyebrows are frosted? Very ‘Paris fashion show’. SO on trend right now.


The fabulous and oh so talented dancers from Sharmila dance opened the show with a ballerina, followed by 4 amazing dancers including one of my good friends Joyce Amil who broke it down for us – no better way to get us psyched! Following this was the show, then the judges sat to deliberate and came back with their top 3.

Winner of the makeup competition

Personally, this was not a top pick for me in terms of creativity. I thought the makeup was a bit too heavy with the dark blue eyes, prune cheeks and bold red lips but nevertheless, it was done perfectly.
