As NYFW wrapped up I had to check out the details from the shows. During the Fashion Week’s I am mainly concentrating on the trends you can see on the catwalks. I often think beauty trends are the hardest to follow. What we mortals have to remember is that models are models because of their versatility and the fact they can have anything done with their face or hair and still look amazing. I for sure am not one of these people. For a start, having darker skin means I have to be careful of what colours I use ….. do you have that too? I always hear people saying “I could never wear that colour it would make me look to yellow/pale/dark etc”. What you all don’t know about me, is that when I was a student I worked for Estee Lauder on the counter and of course, every season we received new products but, what I noticed was that everyone usually came in for their ‘products’.
Well for the past season and it looks like future ones too, I am able to emulate some of the beauty looks from the Catwalk into my own make-up bag and routine. Wet hair is something I have been doing forever, it all came about when I went to the hairdresser in my local town when I was about 10 and clearly she didn’t know about about my Middle Eastern type hair and has she blow dried my hair I just saw it getting bigger and bigger! Basically, I looked like someone from the Soul Train and since then I have never blow dried my hair unless its a blow out and then I go a little crazy and ask the hair dresser to run the GHD’s over it just in case. At Derek Lam, incase your hair does go bad you can wear a turban and if your looking for good ones don’t forget to check out Malaak from Dubai.

Aside from the wet hair the trend on lips seemed to be to wear Orange! I have been wearing this from time to time, mostly when I m in Dubai and it calls for more make-up than my regular look in Amsterdam. So next season I will for sure be embracing orange lips and mixing it up with my white outfits!
