BLACK CAT EYE (1)

The first of its kind, Violent Eyes™ is the only transfer product on the market today.
The customize appliqués fit all eye shapes and sizes, and boast a smudge-proof formula that lasts up to 16 hours. No brushes or shadow pallets needed, Violent Eyes™ are compact, travel-friendly and take the guesswork out of eye makeup colors and time-consuming blending.

Colors & Styles: Each Violent Eyes™ package includes 8 sets of temporary eye appliqués and features four eyeliner styles. From cat eyes to a full lid design, makeup aficionados can choose among glitter shades of Bronze, Jet Black, Pink, Sapphire Blue, Silver, Violet and Rainbow.

AMERICAN FLAG CAT EYE

How to apply: 

  1. Make sure your eyes are dry of any oils or moisturisers. Remove desired shape from the stencil. You can apply over eye primers and powdered makeup.
  2. Measure the appliqué to your eye, starting from the outside corner in.
  3. If needed, cut the inner eye corner of the appliqué to your eye width measurement according to the guidelines.
  4. Peel the plastic film off of the appliqué.
  5. Slightly wet the paper backing of the appliqué with a moist cotton tip to make the appliqué flexible.
  6. Handle the corners of the appliqué carefully and apply the sticky side of the appliqué to your eyelid, placing it as close as you can to your lash line. Continue to soak the paper backing in water with the tip until the paper backing slides off easily – approximately 30 seconds.
  7. Seal and smooth the appliqué with the wet cotton tip. Repeat steps for the other eye.

They last up to 16 hours which make them perfect for this climate as they are smudge proof (just in time for summer… Hello humidity!).

Price: AED55.00 for a set of 8.

Where to Buy: Topshop Dubai Mall

Guest blogger post: Trend Alert by Haya! The future is…. crystal clear.

Anything and everything that is see-through it HOT HOT HOT right now! 

And it’s not as tacky as it sounds! As seen on Savoir Flair.

If it’s elegant enough for Chanel, Hermes, Burberry, Valentino and Jenny Packham (Kate Middleton’s fave brand), then they must be on to something!

MAIN IMAGE

 

As much as the trend has been huge on the runways, we have seen very little of it on the High Street here and believe me we have looked everywhere! Still, we’ve managed to scout a couple of nice pairs of shoes and cute purses.

Here is how to ROCK the clear trend on a high street budget:

Clear Shoes

Shoe1

 

These ALDO beauties are so stylish and elegant, wear them to lunch or to the office and it is an instant update to your look!

 

 

 

 

Shoe2

 

 

These are from Berksha and both look stylish AND feel super comfy! Plus at AED425 it’s a steal!

 

 

 

 

Clear bags

BAGS1

I adooooore these cute little clutches from Zara!  Can’t quite decide whether to go for the green one OR the yellow one… would just add that glam pop of colour to an outfit!
But then again, at AED145 each, I might just get both of them!

 

 

Iconic

Now this one is definitively my STAR buy!

Found it in Iconic for only AED100! PLUS I love the detail of the golden bird, gives it just the right amount of edge without going over board.

I really am loving this whole clear trend at the moment, such an amazing accessory for any outfit any day!

I’m off to scout the next cool trend for you guys! ‘Til next time….

XOXO

Hey there Glam Crushers!

So last week, I was invited to attend the official opening of the new Kiwi Saint Tropez store in Souk Madinat Jumeirah.

Kiwi Saint Tropez, the French beach apparel and accessories designer label, started from Saint Tropez (France) in 1985. Currently, the brand has 44 outlets in the world and 400 outlets in France (Paris, Nice, Saint Tropez, Cannes, Montecarlo, Marseille, Biarritz… must go review these!) and also retail throughout Europe & the US.

This flagship store in Madinat Jumeirah_Central Plaza will be host to Kiwi’s latest collection of beachwear for women, men as well as children, which is updated several times a year. The label aims to design the most comfortable and trendiest swimwear and offers a wide range of shapes to suits all body types, prints and colors including this spring’s florals!

 And to make the experience more special, you can mix and match the tops and bottoms of the two piece swimsuits to suit your taste and size.

 Here are my Summer 2013 Glam Pick:

Swimsuits from AED350, beach bag AED335, sun hat from AED330 and glam scarves from AED115
