#MyDSF #BeautyDistrict at The Dubai Mall

Hello everyone. This has been a learning and interesting weekend for me. This DSF (Dubai Shopping Festival) Dubai Mall hosted an entire week of beauty at the Fashion Avenue inviting incredible makeup artists, social influencers (bloggers, vloggers, Youtubers) from all around the world. I will post a picture below so you can see exactly who was in this program.

I was lucky enough to catch the session of Sarah Angius (hairstylist) and MakeupbyMario (makeup artist of Kim Kardashian) on Saturday, 14th January 2017.

Sarah had a former model on which she demonstrated soft and natural side bun. She is such a natural in her ways and humble. She is Iraqi and is married. I have seen her around on Instagram with her hair tutorials and she is excellent at what she does. She was a former hair stylist for years but 7 months ago gave up her job to pursue her career on social media. Good for her!



Mario, a famous celebrity makeup artist who is not only talented and best at what he does but incredibly down to earth, more than some social influencers there, if you know what I mean. It takes a lot for a person to tell their own flaws when everyone around is praising him. He has been through a tough time, paid his dues which made him into what he is today. I am a fan! He gave a bunch of tips and tricks which were simple yet very good. He did mention that maybe Middle Eastern girls don’t like to hear this but natural makeup would be the next big trend, I am sure he saw the dramatic eyeliner and heavy foundations we have going on here in Dubai lol He had a masterclass a day earlier where he did a makeup tutorial live so this event was mostly just Q&As.


I think this is an amazing experience MyDSF can give people to meet and interact with such huge talents and influencers. I really wish I could have catched the entire week but sadly I just attended one day of it… an inspiring day. Comment down below if you were there too. Have a blessed day! xoxo
