Dubai: Sweat Proof Make Up for the Summer Months

Look good even in the Dubai Summer Heat by Lucy Rhodes

Whilst doing my daily exercise running around Safa Park last month I noticed that there are some particularly attractive male joggers out and about. One specific rugby type caught my eye and I managed a quick ‘hello’ and was feeling very pleased with myself when I received a double-take and a smiley ‘good morning’. It wasn’t until I returned home afterwards and glimpsed myself in the mirror… mascara all down my face – I looked more like Kung Fu Panda than fitness queen.  With the hotter months approaching even my waterproof mascara won’t stand a chance!

It was at this moment I remembered a lady my friend had been raving about. Her name is Candice Watson and she is a Semi Permanent Make Up specialist from the Harley Street in London.

My friend had completed a treatment of upper and lower eyeliner and eyelash enhancement and could not have been happier. Of course I dismissed this as ‘tattooing’ and a  little bit extreme for someone like myself. At this time I had three options – buy a treadmill for indoor use at home and really annoy the neighbours downstairs – scare off eligible men by risking make-up free outdoor ventures – or invest in some semi permanent make up for myself.

I booked for a consultation with Candice and she was surprised at how professional and down to earth, she was..not a tattoo in sight!

Candice explained that Semi Permanent Make Up uses pigments that will fade in 3-5 years and she wouldn’t go near the permanent ink the cheaper make-up tattooists use on their clients – this is the kind of work that fades to shocking green or blue and I really don’t fancy walking around showcasing blue eyebrows!

I booked my appointment and one week later was sporting some very attractive doe-eyes completely sweatproof ! I am so pleased with the results I have booked in to have my eyebrows enhanced next month…to follow my blog on overplucking disasters and how Exclusive Beauty UAE has just the remedy.
