Beauty Talk with Athari Al Snafi

What is beauty for you?

Beauty for me is in absolute simplicity.

Who is your childhood beauty icon?

I was fascinated with my mother. She was the most beautiful woman in my eyes.

Who is your beauty icon nowadays?

Still my mom, as her beauty grew with her. I also love American actress Brooke Shields’ thick eyebrows and blue eyes.

Is there a Kuwaiti or Arab female figure of breathtaking beauty?

Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan.

How often you visit makeup stores?

Usually once or twice a month. I do not like to go frequently and semi-weekly.

How do you know and learn about the latest fashion and beauty products?

I visit beauty centers and ask the makeup artists about the latest fashion and beauty products. Sometimes I receive messages from brands about new launches. I make sure to read them in order to be up to date with what is happening in this fast-paced world.

Is there a cosmetic trend you wish would end as soon as possible?

Drawing eyebrows with sharp black color really bothers me, because this is not the correct way to get great eyebrows. I’m also annoyed with using contouring incorrectly by choosing colors that do not suit the skin or distribute the color properly.

What’s a cosmetic trend you think will remain popular for a long time?

I adore simple makeup and love red lipstick with volume boost mascara for a beautiful look.
