The House of MAISON MAKAREM announces its debut collection at The Ritz Hotel
London during London Fashion Week. “Neo Opulent”, a new revived luxury, personifying a relaxed
confidence of the modern woman. Founded in 2013 by Layal Makarem, the Design House of MAISON
MAKAREM is a privately owned luxury womenswear label, carefully crafted for the woman who desires
The look was created using one of my favorite brands Cover FX, the versatility of the brand is what is what sets it apart, everything can be mixed, matched and customized, the shade range is stellar and the formulas luxurious.
Skincare is paramount when it comes to opulent looking skin, using the Custom Infusion Drops – F + Neroli to hydrate and prep the skin for a plump appearance.
A light veil of Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation used for a flawless sheer base, it’s water based, oil free and actually leaves the skin with a natural , hydrated feel, (The shade range is also amazing!)
For skin looks that like it’s been dipped in candle light and dusted in sunlight we used my absolute favorite Custom Enhancer Drops patted lightly on cheek bones, the pigment and pay off of this product is insane, they are also amazing to mix into your chosen foundation. They come in 6 shades and suit every skin tone.
For the perfect highlight there needs to be the perfect contour, using ever so lighlty , Total Cover Cream Foundation to softly sculpt the cheeks.
Warm brown hues softly defused over the eyes and lips using darker tones of foundations on both eyes and lips.
The final look is polished, classic but with a neo- modern twist, enhancing the natural beauty from within .
Huge Thank you to Maison Marakem & Twenty Nine London for having me apart of it’s debut.
Special Thanks to the amazing support from Monty PR for providing the products from Cover FX.
