Loving Aerin

Aerin, the beauty brand founded by Aerin Lauder (granddaughter of Estée) has launched in the UAE and we couldn’t be happier! The brand was created by the beauty heiress in 2012 when she stepped away from Estée Lauder to produce a range of fresh, younger products aimed at working mums much like herself. Aerin’s fragrance collection has nine scents, each setting a different mood (50ml, Dh475)– I recommend trying them all. The brand will be available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s Dubai.

Beauty made easy

I love the simplicity yet absolute genius idea of Clarins’ Stylo 4 Couleurs. It contains four retractable shades for eyes and lips – and it resembles the multicoloured pens from school! If you’re carrying a small bag just pop this in as your one-stop touch-up tool. Dh100.


Can we please talk about how incredible Adele’s make-up was at the Grammy Awards? The singer had the perfect balance of highlighter, contour and eyeliner, and according to her make-up artist Michael Ashton, it was all thanks to Marc Jacobs Beauty. He shared a picture of the products he used, including the Magic Marc’er Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, and the Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder. The full collection of products used is available at Sephora.
