For those of you whom follow me on instagram or on my FB page you would know that last week I headed to Allenora to have party makeup and hair done by Ghazia. Actually, initially I was booked with Noor as Ghazia was unavailable however since there were three of us waiting in line (My mom, my self and I along with a few brides!), Ghazia took over my makeup. I have been to Ghazia twice before and have never ever been let down thus this time too I chose Allenora.
Our appointment card said we had to be there between 3 and 4 in the afternoon however since I had to run a few last minute errands we showed up at 4:15. I was expecting a bit of a “huff” with the receptionists as in the past even if I am only 15 minutes late, they seem to make a huge deal… however, instead she took me upstairs to the makeup studios where 2 brides were having their hair done and asked me to take a seat. A few minutes later a girl showed up with a glass of ice cold water (Much needed and I’m guessing she could tell I was out in the heat because my face was excessively red) and Noor, who was initially going to do my makeup came up to my sister and I and started asking us about our outfits and what kind of hair and makeup we wanted.
My outfit was a white kurta from Unbeatable with capris and transparent (with gold lace detailing) peep toe pumps from Charles and Keith so I wanted the makeup to be gold-ish with glitter (I LOVE GLITTER!) and something a little smokey. Instantly Noor began working on my little sister and during that time, I had my hair and extensions curled. When my hair was done Ghazia told me to take a seat in her studio and she began doing my makeup. I believe Noor and her spoke before hand because Ghazia knew EXACTLY what I wanted. She went a little heavy on the contouring which scared me at first but when I saw the final look…I was literally in shock. I thought I looked AMAZING (sorry I may sound narcissistic but I took a selfie and was drooling over it because I couldn’t believe that was me!)
