In preparation for Heya Arabian Fashion Exhibition this year, I have collaborated with Qatar-based abaya line KhemarQatar’s fashion shoot look book–providing makeup for their model. Official beauty and fashion shots, photographed by me Jerome Elizaga and Siwar of Brush Salon & spa on the hair-styling, the brand and team’s professional team work has resulted to a custom made standard look for their collection.

KhemarQatar’s abaya line consists of sleek, and hand-embroidered fabrics which caters to the Middle Eastern fashionistas. Their aim with the brand is to market both trend-based and luxury fashion. The brand will exhibit in this year’s 11th Heya Arabian fashion exhibition show, which happens every year. Their abaya is worn by Qatari influencer/blogger Lady Asha.

As per shoot, I have asked for the designer in their desired look on model Denise Neculai. This is the first time I have worked with the international model. We ended up going for a rose-brown classic eye look with either a nude lip on the fist set of the shoot, and a darker lip on the second set of the shoot. Hair is styled by Siwar of Brush Salon & Spa, one of Doha’s best hairstylists. She gave the model’s hair messy retro waves to compliment the classy sass style.
