FACES Makeup Competition on MBC TV – 1st Challenge

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!

This is Mika’s second “White” look wearing AIISHA after last years Golden Globes sensational look. The thing about “white” is that its best worn on red carpets and events where you don’t have to worry about competing with a bride. It also suits all skin tones, with the right makeup and accessories, or else most women wouldn’t wear white gowns on their wedding dresses!

After the success of our first bridal collection for Frost, we decided to pleasantly surprise our clientele with a collection that is set to redefine the parameters of white elegance. Aiisha’s White for Frost 2013 bridal collection bridges the intricacy of couture with the understated glamour of ready to wear.

This ready to wear collection, which is more relevant to our Couture style using extensive amounts of Italian tulle, silk and French lace is set to appeal to a true modern yet timeless bride. Sleeves and beaded lace with an antique style hand beading are the main elements reflected in this collection that marks the return of “less is more”. Less skin to show will only make the bride appear more gorgeous than even through our designs that were inspired by the authenticity and of iconic bridal dresses across the history of bridal couture. Dramatic trains are the focal point of our signature pieces. Adorned with Swarovski Elements, some have the lace speak a fairy tale for its viewers.

Magical is the word I said when I saw this photo of actress and ballet dancer Kristina Anapau. Magical is the same word I said when I watched “Black Swan” where Kristina starred opposite Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Winona Ryder. She also stars in True Blood in addition to few movies down the line.

I have a unique fascination with ballet dancers. They move my soul. They touch my deepest emotions and although I never laugh watching them, I always feel enriched.

Stndrd Magazine feature Kristina in their June 2012 issue in an article about true elegance and Audrey Hepburn where Kristina wore an AIISHA champaign dress and looked.. Magical!

Thank you Stndrd Magazine and Kristina!

Atelier Versace – Paris Fashion Week 2012

To quickly wrap up what I saw at these fashion shows, Atelier Versace, was an amazing presentation of their Couture collection – however, I clearly saw the similarity between their colors and those of Elie Saab’s Couture collection from the past year with the Dove Grey being the main “new” color. I just wonder why the international press never points out such things while Elie Saab was accused of copying Chanel with his White collection.

The entire collection blinged heavily and was well structure. It also had a lot of the golden metal which Stephane Rolland also had in his fashion show during that fashion week.

Anyway, at the Versace fashion show, I saw Diane Kruger, Anna Wintour, Cameron Diaz, Anna Dello Russo  and Grace Cunningham. Here’s the glimpse I caught of Anna Wintour

Elie Saab – Paris Fashion Week 2012

Better late than never.. I’d like to share with you my experience in photographs from my 2nd visit to an Elie Saab Couture fashion show during the Paris Fashion Week in January 2012 at the Grand Palais, which was followed by dinner at his mansion in Paris.

The collection was as usualy beautiful with some really interesting celebrities that I happened to meet. Below are some of the dresses that I personally like (courtesy of Style.com):

At the Elie Saab fashion show, I saw Bérénice Bejo and I knew that she’ll wear one of his dresses during the Oscars – and she did.

Following the beautiful fashion show, we partied a little with the stars at Elie Saab’s apartment in Paris where celebrities like Haifa Wehbe, Elissa and Dita Von Teese were present.

Janina Gavankar wears another AIISHA!

I consider Janina Gavankar from HBO’s True Blood a good luck for me. She was the first last year to wear one of our AIISHA dresses and she did so at no other than the Emmys Annual Awards after party. Few days back, she chose another AIISHA dress, this time a long flowy powder pink gown with side pleating and Italian white guipure underneath the outershell of the dress. The back of the dress is a very interesting tail with a beaded bow and a little opening.

Thank you Janina once again!
