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 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.

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.

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.
