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’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.

Each week carries a tougher challenge than the week after. Stay tuned for next week’s post after the “Barbie’s Makeup” or watch me judge the contestants live every Sunday between 12 – 2pm Dubai local time on MBC1 TV.

AIISHA RAMADAN to represent Middle East’s Prêt-à-Por​ter at Paris fashion phenomenon on the Seine

Jessica wears AIISHA for ELLE Magazine

Global fashion show organizer and model Jessica Minh Anh has picked me as her favourite UAE’s celebrity designer to represent Prêt-à-Porter sector from the Middle East at the highly anticipated J Spring Fashion Show on the famous River Seine in Paris on 30 May 2013. This marks the second collaboration between Jessica and Aiisha after the incredible J Winter Fashion show on Costa Atlantica took place in Dubai via Frost Boutique.

This exclusive VIP and press event is a part of Jessica’s series of unique catwalks at the most extraordinary venues worldwide following the grand success on London Tower Bridge, PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge, and Costa Atlantica in Dubai.

My latest ready-to-wear collection will be showcased on a 90 metre floating catwalk on the Seine’s giant glass boat Le Jean Bruel with the natural backdrop being architectural wonders such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre.

“I am not only a fan of Aiisha Ramadan’s clean cut and unique designs, which greatly accentuate a woman’s body, but also impressed with the way she operates her business. Being a young talent, she has definitely taken advantage of the latest technology and social media to share her vision to the fashion world.” said Jessica Minh Anh, who is featured in ELLE Hong Kong this month wearing my AIISHA Couture sculpture signature dress. I by Aiisha collection will command its presence on the Seine in Paris with creative dimensions, strong colours, and impeccable tastes.

Parisian can also take a glance at some of the most unique pieces from the catwalk at the mini exhibition between 1 and 15 June 2013 at Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe, the Official Hotel Partner of J Spring Fashion Show.

Thank you Jessica, Frost and Paris for this dream to come true!

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!

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!
