I wish to have a natural duck face !


Duck face is all around social media!! And since am a very understanding person, I will conclude that this due to the fact that every female on earth dream about Angelina Jolie’s plumped lips! So, here are some tricks to give you the full lips required;

1. Exfoliation

I believe that this step is a must, as routine basis ladies! It will remove all your skin debris giving you a softer look and will increase your lips’ blood flow as well giving them a temporary plumed look. It can be easily done by a toothbrush, using sugar/ cinnamon oil (few drops only) or you can use an exfoliating product.

2. Lip primer

You can use a lip primer or your usual foundation to avoid oily lips, in order to have a dry base and to have a long lasting lipstick.


3. Lip liner

This is a very important step! Choosing a suitable color is what it is all about! You have two choices:

a. Lip liner color same as your lips’ color: in that case you are going to use light natural shades of lipsticks. 

b. Lip liner same as your lipstick color: in that case you are going to use bright or darker shades

Both ways, you need to carefully draw the line on the outer edge of the lips, to give the look of fuller lips!



4. Concealer 

After applying your lipstick, start framing your lips by your concealer. 

5. Shiny gloss

Having a glossy shiny look always helps give a fuller look where the light reflection on the shiny gloss gives a false dimension!

Wish you all natural plumped lips…..forever after!!

M.A.C smolder black eyeliner





Before reviewing the eyeliner, the first thing I noticed about the product is that the eyeliner pencil is really long- much longer than the average pencil products from other brands.
Now, my verdict. On applying for the first time, I was amazed at how creamy and smooth it was, without being overly waxy and breaking on sharpening or applying. It is very soft that I even used it all over my lid and used a blending brush to soften it out for a smokey look.


Smolder is a dark black with a matte finish. It had good color payoff in one stroke- I didn't have to swipe over my eye back and forth till I get the opacity I needed. It is a medium dark black, not the darkest of M.A.C's shades though. yet this one lasted longer than the rest.

The Vanity's new updates






A bit of tidying up, adding a snappy slogan, moving away the sofa (literary!),  brushing up the fonts and we are good!

Ever since I did the logo two years ago, and started working on the brand's identity, I wasn't thinking ahead so to speak. I only took baby steps, one thing at a time. Hence, a visual change was needed. Thank God that I made lucky,yet right, choices in the past- the logo, italic transcript font, color shades, and the cameo frame. So, all we had to do is a little bit of retouching to the logo, and a lot of refurbishing to the template.

Also, to make things more brand=client oriented, we added the slogan. Honestly, I had a totally different slogan in mind. When I asked my team's opinion about it, as casual as a watsapp convo, and left to do some work, got back to find them already started brainstorming and rotating the slogan I presented to come out with this one in the end. I have to say I was quite surprised and impressed with how creative they were to come up very fast with this catchy slogan. Hats off ladies.

This is the final logo with the slogan. How do you like it?

Very special thanks to my backbone and supporting team, very proud of your work and high spirit:
Pakinam Farouk (who came out with this slogan eventually)
Sophia Saad and Dina Said ( for working on this logo from scratch to come up with something as close as to the one we already had)
