Raya Abirached wears I by Aiisha at the AGT!

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!

Keri Hilson wears I by Aiisha

While I was giving my second collection from my recently launched ready-to-wear line I by Aiisha final finishing touches, my first collection is still harvesting its success in Hollywood!

On the 28th of August, singer and actress Keri Hilson looked gorgeous to perfection with her darker hair, long braids, beautiful gold accessories wearing a long black Dita gown from my I by Aiisha Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Keri kept it simple yet sophisticated.

Keri was beautifully styled by Monica Rose as she arrived to the premiere for the third installment of the science fiction thriller “Riddick”, in which she plays “Shirah” a prisoner opposite action star Vin Diesel.

To tell you more about the Dita dress, this is one of the most special pieces to my heart as it appeals to every woman. You can wear it open back with a long slit with the button loops acting as decorative elements, or you can close them for a more conservative look. The best thing about it is that its so simple and calls for statement accessories. I have made it in beautiful colors like cobalt blue, red, black and off white. I have to say that the Dita dress is the signature dress from I by Aiisha.

A successful look portraying the queen of gold who loved her people and was betrayed by them, rises from the dead to revenge – by Namareq

Lina Hussein proved me right once again. The model behind her makeup looked beautiful and truthfully this was the first time this model looked that good in this competition. Lina can simply make anyone look more beautiful. Lina portrayed a Queen of love full of romance.

Risellene is the perfect makeup artist for fashion shows. With her European approach, she proves to be very creative and thinks outside the box. Unfortunately, she doesn’t relate much to the Arab market. This look specifically didn’t feel complete and the gold paper was too spread in an incoherent way, especially under the eyes, it didn’t do it for me. Hard luck for Risellene; however, rest assure this is a name you will see a lot more of in the near future.

Next week’s episode will be the finale. The challenge is all about Passion. It will be a tough one. However, because both finalists are incredibly good, I have announced that the runner up will be the official makeup artist of my upcoming lookbook. Stay tune.

FACES Makeup Competition on MBC TV – 4th Challenge

What do you think about when you hear the Dark Glamour makeup?For me, I think dark eyes, maybe an eyeliner and dark red lipstick. Heavily countoured and super sexy. For this week’s challenge, Glamour was the theme and the contestants were given Black as the main color to work with.

I had different expectations, but let’s go through the results.

The best for this week was Lina. Even the most talented of us, needs to be reminded that she will always have to learn more and do better. Otherwise, her future is dead. Despite last week’s controversy having Lina in the bottom three, she remains -in my opinion- as one of the best makeup artists I have ever dealt with, not just on this show. It was dark enough, perfectly blended and commercial as well as a show makeup.

One of the best was also Namareq. I just wish she took it a bit further and perhaps added an eyeliner to add a sharp touch to it. Other than that, I loved that it was different from the rest of the looks and was commercial to me.

Ange is improving and showing us her true colors. I don’t mind the heavy eyeliner she had gone for, in fact its sexy. However, for such a heavily outline eyeshadow/eyeliner, the lines should have been more perfect because any mistake is obvious to see.

The bottom looks were obviously Hadjira’s and Risellene’s. Neither one gave us a Dark Glamourous look or a glamorous look at all.

While Risellene is creative and technically very good, she doesn’t relate to the Arabic woman. As for the Hadjira, she is clearly improving by getting out of her element; however, she needs a lot of practice to not only make her work cleaner, but to also understand clearly what the challenges are really about. In other words, she needs to become a professional.

FACES Makeup Competition on MBC TV – 2nd Challenge

The second week’s challenge on FACES makeup competition airing every Sunday morning live on MBC TV “Sabah Alkheir Ya Arab” program was a tough one: “Mysterious Arabic” with blue being the main color.

I went for a retro glamorous look for this episode

I’m into simpler makeup, well toned face, contoured bones and defined eyes.. a flattering makeup. Makeup artists can easily take a very wrong direction with Mysterious Arabic. Unfortunately, some of the contestants took that path.

Some, on the other hand, nailed it and exceeded my expectations giving incredibly beautiful results! I was truly impressed.

My top choices where: Namareq and Lina Hussein. Each had her own style but both had clean work, spot on with the concept yet on an international level. Both executed elegant results.

Lina has a gift. She can transform any face into a beautiful one. In the first challenge, I wondered if the model’s natural beauty helped her out. It looks like I was wrong but I’ll only know for sure in the next challenge.

Risellene and Ange did beautiful work too but Risellene’s makeup didn’t exactly portray “Mysterious Arabic makeup”. It was more of a beautiful smokey makeup. Ange had beautiful results with the pop out turquoise and the beautifully toned face but I wish she could take more risk in the upcoming challenge.

I had mixed feelings about Hadjira’s makeup as she understood this week’s challenge well but I felt the outcome was too much. The face was too glittery and the colors were intense.

The weakest were Lina Zoghaib and Raffle. Lina’s work was very amateur and it wasn’t clean around the eyes. It was completely out of her element and that’s what I love about this competition. It pushes talents in directions they never thought they’d take and it brings the best and worst in them. Hard luck for Lina in this competition, with a little more practice, I have no doubt she will be great.

Raffle on the other hand needs a canvas to draw on. Faces restrict her work as she has a very theatrical approach to her makeup. This is good creativity but not for your every day clients. I can’t wait to see how Raffle will evolve in the upcoming challenges.

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.

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.
