Stock Up On The Major Make Up Trends This Season


By Mariam Nihal

1. Sheer Voile Lip Colour – Rouge Louboutin

The idea and concept in itself is a best seller. You can wear this as a necklace or gift it to your best friend or wife. You cannot go wrong with the rich red hues in Louboutin’s latest range of lipsticks. Make sure you use a balm or primer before application in case it dries your lips out. Available on

2. Balmain haircare

Balmain’s latest hair couture range is part of the new hair care revolution. The range is great for hairdressers, especially the Balmain smelling fragrance and Argan exilir hair spray. The set includes a handmade gold brush with boar bristles that is supposed to improve hair texture and stimulate the scalp. However if you experience hair fall, it is not a solution for it. But it is definitely a great gift idea. Available on

3. Nars’ Deep Bold Lips Kit

This limited edition kit includes a smooth velvet lip liner called Belle Mare, a dark plum lip pencil Train Bleu that is enriched with Vitamin E and emollients to lock in moisture. The spicy Audacious lipstick is one of those perfect reds that lasts long with a creamy, moisturizing effect. Available on

4. Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder

The New York kit is easily one of the best eyeshadow palettes on the market today. The chosen combination of eyeshadow colors includes an electric blue, a grungy green, shimmery copper with contrasting partners in hues of brown, smoky charcoal gray and a shade of dark burgundy. The eyeshadow is part of the series of a collaboration between Victoria Beckham and Estee Lauder. The kit also includes a rich rose gold bronzer and Beckham’s favorite nude lip pencil which is intensely creamy with a gloss. Their lipgloss is a huge disappointment, with difficulty in application and fails to leave a shine.  Available on

5. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks

These liquid matte lipsticks are definitely one of the best trends to take over the market this year. Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty managed to create, sell and then sell-out the incredible range of liquid matte lipsticks this year from Sephora in the Middle East to Harrods in London. The ultra smooth and moisturizing liquid matte lipsticks last for hours if not all day and leave your lips soft and moisturized. Unlike Anastasia’s range this year that will instantly dry up your lips, Huda Beauty managed to strike the right balance with the palette and skincare. Available on

6. OUAI’s haircare range is one of the most talked about products this year. Their products  are suitable for color-treated hair and are fee from parabens, talc and phthalates. Founder and celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin recommends that you “mist it on dry hair and scrunch stands out with your finger tips for a loose, lived-in look.” Available in Nazih Pharmacy

7. Make Up Forever ultra HD invisible cover foundation was an absolute favorite this year. From cover girls to the girl next door, this was everyone’s favorite. The foundation gives excellent coverage that lasts all day and doesn’t damage your skin in the process. Use a primer or moisturizing base before application. Available in Paris Gallery

8. OPI expanded its range with new colors and collaborations including Samoan Sand- a warm beige-pink,  Red fortune cookie and My private jet in a deep black. Available in Sephora and Nazih Pharmacy
