FACES Makeup Competition on MBC TV – Final Challenge

The final challenge for the Faces “Wojooh Jamalek” competition on MBC TV was all about passion. The contestants were given the freedom to create anything, even draw on the body.

The results didn’t do it for me and were in fact slightly disappointing.

Lina gave me the perfect face makeup emphasizing on simplicity and practiced her calligraphy skills by writing a poem verse by Nizar Kabbani about Baghdad – her hometown. I just wondered where did all the great work that I’ve seen from her across the weeks go?

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.

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 … Read more...

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 … Read more...

You remember how my career in fashion started? It was all about dressing my Barbie dolls using my aunt’s fabric left overs from her stitching days. With that, came a nostalgic challenge for this week on MBC TV with Faces: Barbie Makeup.
