Here is a little quiz question for you.. What do you think is the best selling Mac lipstick and Mac eyeshadow in Dubai. Answer is at the end of this post!

Anyway, As part of  the trip Agenda for the Mac Spring Summer 2012 Trends Presentation in Dubai, there was a small trip to the nearby Mac Store for a makeup application. While the others were a bit apprehensive ,  I made total use of this opportunity to literally eat up the makeup artists brain about colors, shades, textures which will all come handy for the big wedding day ! (Which btw, is not too far away now..eeks!!!!) . e Anyhow, so i thought i shall share the before and after pictures with you girls. You are only allowed to laugh a tiny bit  at the before picture: The previous  night was really late okay- im allowed dark circles and unkept hair!

Okay you can stop laughing now!!!!!

Do you like/love/hate the look? Be honest.

I loved the eyes, and how it photographs but thats a LOT of makeup for me..I usually dont wear half of that even on a night out!!


Have i told you i have an obsession with photographing food? Specially breakfast food. This was my staple in Dubai. Orange Juice with a ham & cheese omelette and hash browns !! Yummm! I felt like i was in an Enid Blyton Novel!

Answers to the question: The best selling lipstick in Dubai is Mac Impassioned Lipstick !!! Impasssioned can you believe it? A hot bright neon pink!!!! How different is that from india where all the best sellers are brown! The best selling mac eyeshadow is Atlantic Blue eyeshadow- a bright  bright electric blue.  I Found that SO fascinating about how makeup is so widely different with different cultures!
