Its no surprise that I love dressing Raya Abirached and she loves to wear AIISHA. It was also beautiful to see her in one of my cocktail numbers from the I by Aiisha “Mirror” collection we launch showcased last April. Raya accessorized the look with Azza Fahmi jewelry, which I thought was very beautiful and gave the look a fierce effect.
This lady looks beautiful in anything she wears simply because of her character and pure beauty. She’s got a skin complexion that works with a lot of colors and textures and ultimately makes it more fun to dress her.
I love you Raya!
This week featured the top 4 makeup artists who made it through out FACES competition on MBC TV, Saba Al Kheir Ya Arab segment every Sunday. As a judge, its getting harder every week to eliminate especially because not only are all the makeup artists improving, but also because we are getting really used to them. This week’s challenge was GLITTER.
Looks like Risellene took my feedback from last week seriously and pushed herself where she delivered a creative output of a woman made of ice. In reality, Risellene coated the lips and eyebrowse with sugar and broke that look with a pink eyeshadow. I personally loved it!
As for Namareq, she did an impeccable job. I have to point out that the pictures don’t give the real work justice. Namareq challenged herself where she created a hand-made mask of glitter going gradually from blue to purple (again, that’s not shown in the photo). After all this work, she delivered a clean picture of perfection revolving around the carnaval theme. This by far was the most difficult look and she nailed it.
Lina has a stamp called: Let me do your makeup, let me make you gorgeous! Lina took what she does best and added a fantasy of glitter mix on the face that spoke royal beauty. I simply love her work!
Anje on the other hand understood the theme, delivered a clean work and upgraded her level. Unfortunately, she was eliminated this week due to her limited creativity in this look. Anje has a classic approach that I personally admire. However, the stakes are too high right now and the artists shouldn’t play it safe. They should push themselves and get out of their element. Hard luck to Anje, I wish her all the best!
Last week’s eliminated contestant was Hadjira, who I asked her to do the work and send me photos of the out come. Hadjira went for a beautiful romantic look but still kept it safe lacked perfection. Notice the similarity between Anje’s and Hadjira’s makeup.
Next week’s challenge is all about GOLD! That, I can’t wait to see! See you next Sunday.
The first week’s challenge on FACES makeup competition on MBC TV “Sabah Alkheir Ya Arab” program was about the “Dreamy bride”.
As one of the 3 judges, I’ll be sharing with you my views on looks by the makeup artists. For me, the below were the top looks by Lina Hussein and Risllene.
Lina gave me a glow in the model’s face by emphasizing on the eyes and contouring the face in such a magical way. It was my favorite look by far.
Risllene seems to be the one who understood the “Dreamy Bridal” message that we were trying to get out of this competition. She had beautiful and clean complexion, and overall her makeup was very dreamy.
The rest of the contestants, such as Ange, Lina Zoghaib and Hadjira, also gave a beautiful results. Unfortunately, each week, one makeup artist will be eliminated. This week’s challenge resulted in Rasha being eliminated. Hard luck for Rasha.
This challenge also shed the light on 2 looks that I thought could have been perfect. Namariq went oriental which I didn’t mind. It was the red lipstick that killed it for me not just because red isn’t dreamy at all, but because the model’s lips were too thin and dark red lips will make them look even thinner.
As for Raffle, everything was perfect until she drew the flowers on the model’s face. It was definitely dreamy and its good for each artist to have her own identity, but she has to ask herself if a real bride will actually want drawings on her face. Apart from that it was a really beautiful makeup.
Next week’s challenge is not an easy one, its the “Mysterious Arabic” with blue being the main ingredient of the color palette.
Good luck all!
Every Sunday on MBC TV, Sabah Al Kheir Ya Arab, FACES will be hosting a show where young talents compete to win the title of being the official makeup artist for FACES. Each week there will be a theme that the contestants should follow. I have had the pleasure to be invited as one of three judges on this weekly reality tv competition.
Below is the intro episode for this beautiful competition that aired Sunday 12th May.
This weeks theme was “Dreamy Bridal”. I can’t wait to share with you the results!
I look forward to learning interesting techniques and to find an incredible talent to work with on my upcoming projects. Above all, I love everything that brings out the best in people and that supports talent.
I finally launched my first ever high-end ready-to-wear line I by Aiisha and little did I know it would take the Middle East by storm! Women are hungry for pieces with class and quality for everyday and I’m giving it to them. After realeasing our I by Aiisha video campaign for our collection titled “Mirror” with celebrities Joelle Mardinian, Asma Lmnawar, Mohamad Abuobeid and Arjan Bajwa, it was time to give Dubai a real taste of my new line.
The story of this line is about women’s individuality and evolution. With simplistic lines, statement colours and structured fit, this line suits women with differing needs, backgrounds and tastes. Specifically, the ‘Mirror’ collection reveals the 2 sides of every story and multitude of characters that each person can embody.
Our vision for the brand came to life with support from the Infiniti Centre, part of the Arabian Automobiles Co. A powerful, luxurious and classy brand, these same elements are incorporated within our ‘Mirror’ collection. Months of hard work and planning was facilitated with the cutting edge technology of the Blackberry Z10. Wella Koleston crowned the models and Asma Lmnawar’s hair with trendy hair styles reflected in clean lines of perfection. Revlon was a trendsetter painting the models nails with black French manicure on nude base.
Revlon also touched the models faces and Asma Lmnawar’s with brushes of beauty marking fierce cat eyes on structured nude faces. 5 star catering DISH and Voss water from Norway treated invitees with a refined taste and refreshing water.
Select invitees received their invitations with a special treat that made their hearts beat so fact! A beautiful La Prairie gift bag!
Finally, I wish to thank my partners, press & media, family & friends for their amazing support! I couldn’t have done it without you.
Its time of the year where fans nominate their favorite designers and boutiques for the Grazia Style Awards. If you have a minute, please nominate me Aiisha Ramadan in the “Best Regional Designer” section and Frost boutique for the “Best Boutique”
