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.

Maika Monroe is an American beauty taking Hollywood by a storm. She stars in a recently launched movie called At Any Price opposite Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham.
In a photoshoot just before launching At Any Price, Maika wore an AIISHA ”My Vision” couture dress and looked like my vision of Eve in the gardens of Eden.
Maika has many more movies under her sleeves and I’m so thrilled to her inevitable success. Keep your eyes on her.
Thank you Maika for wearing AIISHA – Stunning!
Fresh, floral, and in the mood for a party! Those are the thoughts I had when I saw Ahed’s outfit when she was in Miami recently.
She wore a dress from Rickie Freeman for Teri jon Nites, Gucci Sandals & AاX Gold clutch. As for her accessories, Hermes Bracelets & Chanel earings were her key to mix and match!
The beautiful French-Vietnamese actress Anne-Solenne Hatte was a grace to meet the last time I was in Paris for the Paris Fashion Week. She is kind, charismatic and genuinely beautiful. Above all, I adore her body type as she represents perfection with her real-woman slim yet rounded figure.
She has recently starred in a video clip of a song called Pauline by French singer Mat. In this video clip, she wore a beautiful AIISHA dress. Watching this video was like seeing my design from sketch to fantasy embedding all the beautiful details that I dreamt of while designing this piece and summarizing those moments by a vision that only Anne-Solenne can show to the world as she sways on the French coast.
Anne-Solenne Hatte starred in a few hit movies such as Ocean’s Twelve and Lockout. She also appears in several ads for leading brands such as Cartier and Levis.
Love you Anne-Solenne and thank you for choosing AIISHA!
Not too long ago, Ahed attended the egagement party of her best friend Nemer Saade & Daniella at Buddha Bar – Beirut, Lebanon.
She wore what she wears best: an Herve Leger powder gray bandage dress with navy trim. In my opinion, Ahed is one of few women who can carry off an Herve Leger dress and make the designer himself ultimately proud!
Her shoes were from Casadei gracefully laced with satin platform pumps
She combined texture through the shiny bandage dress, the lace pumps and the fringe Henri Bendel clutch.
As for her jewelery, she wore her white gold Rolex watch & spikes bracelets from Forever21.
What a beautiful mix and match between high-end and affordable pieces!
I love creative photo shoots and this is where the stylist and the photographer work hand in hand. This time, I was very happy with seeing our nude AIISHA jumpsuit from our latest collection Le Pouvoir de la Poudre featured in UK’s Twenty6 Magazine, issue D.

Thank you Leila Lopes!
For as long as I can remember people around and kids at school loved my hair, which made me feel that my hair is my tiara. So I took good care of it and I only used the best products around. When WELLA approached me to become the ambassador of their WELLA Koleston Color-Intense Foam range, I was thrilled! It felt like a childhood dream came true, without even asking for it.
