From Nars Make-Up session to Lacoste x Dubai Tennis Championships
Catch up with me and all the incredible events I attended
I get to attend some really great events as part of my work, and I’d like to share some insights into a few of my favourites this month…
NARS Make-up Session
NARS, one of my all-time favourite make-up brands, recently hosted an intimate event to launch its new collection and its hero product, the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint. I’ve been waiting impatiently for it from the moment I read about it a few months ago! The session consisted of us playing around with the make-up (props to all the make-up artists – it ain’t easy!). I love the colours they’ve launched for this season – if you’re into warm, bronze and rose browns, you’ll love the collection. The Velvet Matte Skin Tint is by far the best tinted moisturiser I’ve tried. I love the airbrushed finish it leaves while providing buildable coverage within a light yet luxe product.
Harvey Nichols Dubai S/S16 Fashion Show
There are very few local fashion shows I look forward to, but Harvey Nichols is definitely one of them. I loved everything about this season’s event, from the Shakespearean theme (celebrating the 400th anniversary of his death) and the crown braids on the models, to the colour, embellishments and flowy dresses for S/S16.
Lacoste X Dubai Tennis Championships
This year was my first at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, and I was lucky enough to be invited to DJ at the opening players’ party, as well as the ladies’ night at the Lacoste Lounge. I must say, after having worn Lacoste for the week, Lacoste’s LIVE! range is super cool – and they make some really cool sneakers, too!
Raw Spirit Fragrances
I was invited to attend a lovely cocktail party to celebrate celebrity photographer Russell James’ new fragrance brand, Raw Spirit Fragrances, and it was a celebrity-studded soirée. The event was hosted at Jean Georges at the Four Seasons hotel, and Russell’s supermodel friends Adriana Lima and Isabeli Fontana had casually flown in for the party!
