5 MIN­UTES WITH DIALA MAKKI

Friday - - Beauty - Diala’s lashes are on sale from Septem­ber at Diala­makki.com, ishim­mer.com and Made­moi­selle Paris.

The Dubai-based Le­banese TV host’s love of fash­ion and beauty has directed her to her lat­est ven­ture – a false eye­lashes col­lab­o­ra­tion with lo­cal beauty brand Ishim­mer. She tells Fri­day all about them. Why did you work with Ishim­mer? I was al­ways con­fi­dent when­ever I wore Ishim­mer’s ex­ist­ing lines, so it was only a nat­u­ral step to col­lab­o­rate with the lovely Ayah Mu­fleh, the brains be­hind Ishim­mer. [There was] an im­me­di­ate mu­tual un­der­stand­ing that led to the de­sign of my lashes line. What’s dif­fer­ent about these lashes? A unique de­sign and the best qual­ity, in ad­di­tion to be­ing light as a feather – I can guar­an­tee that as a user my­self! They are made with 100 per cent cru­elty-free mink hair and are hand­combed and han­dassem­bled. The cot­ton thread band barely shows on the eye­lid and makes it su­per-easy to ap­ply. When should we wear lashes? I wear lashes when I want to have a nat­u­ral look without wear­ing too much make-up. The lashes lift the eye and add to the charm of your gaze. What’s been you favourite in­ter­view? One of the clos­est to my heart would be Elie Saab in his house in Beirut. He was so re­laxed and in­ti­mate that he cried when he re­mem­bered his early years in Beirut and how hard it was for his gen­er­a­tion dur­ing the war. That was an in­cred­i­bly mov­ing mo­ment. Where do you shop for make-up? A re­cent dis­cov­ery is Made­moi­selle Paris [at Gal­le­ria on Al Wasl Road, and open­ing soon in City Walk]. I am fond of Pat McGrath make-up and I found it there, and I also was in­tro­duced to the Ul­tra Dewy Com­plex­ion Per­fec­tor and the Undo Time Blur­ring Con­cealer, from Ed­ward Bess, an amaz­ing brand. The make-up you can’t live without? The lip sugar scrub by Dior.
