Nawal El Zoghbi Make up by Hala Ajam
In Memory of Elizabeth Taylor
Try to be creative with your own individual look, as you never know how amazing that result will be. I like to think of the “art of makeup” as a playful game: not only is it fun to experiment on the surface with different looks, BUT it is also a great tool that enables us to touch on the different personalities within us all.
Experiment from time to time with different colors and the way you apply your makeup, change your hair style if you have worn it the same way for years, even change the way you dress. Surprise yourself. Change can bring about great discoveries.
RACHELLE is my beautiful client And I have asked her to be part of my book (FACE TO FACE) back in 2005. I wanted to create a retro look . She has darken her hair, so I was inspired by an old photo for Elizabeth Taylor and I wanted to do it.
So the hair is darker now, with some accessories (that I got from here and there), we did the make up and went to David Abdallah’s studio for the photo shoot.
I was lucky that the dearest Yehya Saade was @the studio, as he helped me put it all together.
From film, to fabrics, to cloths, to makeup: color is everywhere. The new trend was towards lighter skin, beauty marks, fuller lips, and arched eyebrows. Eye makeup becomes more customized according to the color of your eyes. Demi-lash were added to give the eye a sexy and dramatic look.

This is another article from my book Face-To-Face which you can order online.
Blush enhances and compliments ones natural skin tone; and can give you different types of looks if applied correctly.
A Natural Look
Apply peach, coral and pink shades of blush to the apple of the cheeks to create a flushed and healthy glow. Of course go for the color that best suits your skin color.
To create and enhance cheekbones, apply blusher just under the cheekbones using a natural skin-tone color only. If suitable, go a shade or two darker to really sculpt and define, keeping in mind that the darker you go the more important it is to blend the lines together.
A few tricks: If you apply and blend upwards toward the hairline, this will elongate the face. If you blend downwards towards the jaw line, this will make the face appear thinner. Ultimately, the shape of your face will determine what looks best in terms of application.
Play with the color of blush and its application as much as you like to create a truly personal look, looking like your favorite star. However, it is important not to go overboard with colors and quantity.
