Makeup – The secret to the perfect Brown Smokey Eye day-to-night

Artist, Lifestyle

Getting your makeup done professionally is a wonderful treat 💄❤️

I recently had Annies_Makeup give me a makeover and I loved Annie’s work so much that right after the shoot I got a makeup lesson scheduled with her.

I work in the media industry and mainly use Instagram to promote my work and others’ too, so I know it is important to credit the artist. For a working professional, someone who makes their living and pays their bills by freelancing, it’s not JUST a photo. It’s hours of hard physical and intellectual work. It’s crucial to credit the artists: explaining why it’s so important to give credit when posting their work.

So I had this wonderful session with a very young, talented & most affordable makeup artist in the island. She has a wonderful eye for color, respectfully listens to your requests, and moves throughout the getting-ready period with a calm, collected stress-free attitude.

Annie was absolutely brilliant and so lovely with myself and my family. She immediately put me at ease and listened to what I wanted in my makeup application. I trusted her immediately and was not disappointed. I never felt rushed and she took a great deal of care with my application. I felt pampered and enjoyed her company; we had some good laughs. My makeup was perfect! She gave me a brown smokey eye day-to-night look.

Here’s the final look and the step-by-step breakdown:

La Fontaine – Europe hidden in Bahrain

Travel and Food

Early morning meeting & some interesting reads 📖 at La Fontaine – Centre of Contemporary Art. It isn’t that early (11:30am) but anytime in the morning is early when your night baby mixes up your night & day!! 👶🏻 Thanks to my morning latte for being the silent hero of the morning ☕️

This is an excellent hidden place in Manama with a great architectural value. Visited here with my manager and was really surprised. What a fabulous setting… Great little art gallery and fabulous restaurant in a very romantic setting.

Wind your way through enclosed courtyards and tiny corridors and find La Fontaine’s intimate European restaurant, which is hidden in this renovated traditional Bahraini home. It has often been awarded with Best Romantic Restaurant accolade in the past. The atmosphere is tranquil with soft background music to enhance the vibe, in the dining areas both inside and out. The food focuses on specialties from Italy and the Mediterranean, but you’ll find influences from all over.

The only one of its kind throughout the Middle East, la fontaine centre of contemporary art is an historical monument dating back to a hundred and fifty years, located in the heart of Manama close to the old “Suq”. It features a number of contemporary art galleries, an open-air amphitheatre, an exquisite fine dining restaurant, an exclusive spa, and a state-of-the-art Pilates & Dance Studio, the first of its kind in the Gulf region.
