Layla Al-Siyabi of “Being Layla.Al.S.” x Karl Moreto project

Bts photo of me doing makeup on Layla by my assisant CT Sayson.

Focusing on Qatar-based talents, I have provided makeup for Qatar-based Omani beauty, blogger Layla Al-Siyabi  of “Being Layla.Al.S.” for her looks at Zengo, Kempinski Suites. Together with the independent and hip, commercial/fashion photographer Karl Moreto, we have joined forces as a team to gather Layla’s hand-picked fashion looks and make an hijabi-friendly fashion statement from the shoot.

Check out more BTS images randomly taken by me or my assistant CT Sayson on my camera below:
