Bees are essential to a healthy environment—and the economy—and the good news is, more and more people around the globe are now getting gaining awareness on the importance of bee preservation. Cue Bees Day, which falls on May 20, and has been recognized around the globe by communities.Among the many to celebrate the important event is beauty brand Gisou. Born out of a passion for honey bees and haircare, Gisou was founded by Negin Mirsalehi, who also happens to be an active beekeeper, so it comes as no surprise that Bees Day is a special one for her. This year, Mirsalehi has put together a special pop-up in Amsterdam—and an online Bee Learning course that will be taught by none other than Negar Mirsalehi, Negin’s sister and Gisou’s very first beekeper-in-chief. What’s more, customers will also now get a chance to shop for limited edition Gisou originals, and become certified beekeepers in a whopping 30 minutes flat.

All set to take place between May 20 and May 22, Gisou’s Bee Season celebration will stretch on through Bee Season, and will come to a close on August 20, 2022, which marks National Honey Bee Day. For now, the Amsterdam pop-up will give visitors a peek into life in the Mirsalehi Bee Garden, with honey tasting sessions, deep dives into the Honey Museum. If you’re not in Amsterdam right now, you can also be part of the experience by heading to Gisou’s official website.

Pat McGrath Is Launching Her First Skincare Product–And Naomi Campbell Is Already a Fan

Pat McGrath Is Launching Her First Skincare Product–And Naomi Campbell Is Already a Fan

For all the follows and likes Pat McGrath generates around her makeup artistry every season (Julia Fox’s internet-breaking black eyeliner didn’t just happen), it’s the skin quality she has pioneered over the course of her storied career that is perhaps her biggest calling card. Hydrated, but not oily; smooth, but realistic, with a makeup-priming moisture quality that is “lightweight yet nourishing,” McGrath explains. Much like she developed a seven-step lipstick technique to achieve the ultimate in petal-soft pigment, McGrath has been cocktailing her own skin-care formula for her entire career, layering simple creams spiked with rose water to create a quick-penetrating emulsion. And just as that signature makeup technique became Pat McGrath Labs’ best-selling MatteTrance Lipstick, her patented skin prep has finally been bottled.
Called Divine Skin Rose 001 and formulated by a Korean lab, the milky liquid that will launch on Patmcgrath.com closely resembles a blendable essence, formulated with 97% naturally derived ingredients; shake it up, and a ceramide-boosted oil phase combines with an antioxidant-spiked rose water phase to create McGrath’s replenished, rebalanced glow. “The truth is I’ve been working on skin care as long as I have been working in makeup,” admits McGrath, who has tweaked her formula not in focus groups but on supermodels, including Naomi Campbell, who stars in the campaign for the rose-tinted glass bottle that will arrive at select Sephoras later this year. “I wouldn’t use anything else,” says Campbell—which is high praise considering Campbell is serious about her skin care, specifically her hydration. “You never want your skin to look dried out. It’s not attractive. It’s unbecoming,” she says. Here, Campbell reveals how she’s been using the uniquely textured Essence, and why after all these years in the business, good sleep might be the real secret to good skin.

As someone who has been on countless sets with Pat and at countless shows with Pat, what is her point of difference when it comes to skin finish?
When you work with Pat, before you she puts makeup on you, she really massages your skin—she loves glowy, dewy skin. So your makeup goes on smoother, everything just rolls. That’s her secret: that the skin still looks like skin and you see you and that’s important, I feel. That’s what I love about her; she never makes me matte. When you’re too matte you lose the whole person. Your makeup becomes like a mask. Pat’s makeup never looks like that.
As a #McGrathMuse and, perhaps even more importantly, a Pat McGrath confidant, were you at all a part of tweaking early incarnations of her first skin-care product?
She’s been trying this out on me for a while now so I’ve had a bit of a head start in using it in my skin regime. We were actually using it last year when we were doing the Divine Rose makeup launch, but I couldn’t talk about it then, so I’m so excited that I can say all of this now. The cat’s outta the bag! In the beginning, she would ask me things like, “How does it feel? How long did it stay on?” It goes on the skin, but it also goes in the skin. It just makes everything glowy and plump, which is important for me because I’m on set all the time, and I’m in front of lights, and I’m on planes, and my skin dries out and it gets really dehydrated no matter how much water I drink. Drink water, drink water. I never drink enough. My test is really traveling, though—how often do I need to reapply something on the plane so my skin feels hydrated. I usually sleep straight through flights and with this, I’d wake up and still have the shine.
It is not an exaggeration to say that your skin is, in fact, divine. Drop the routine!
It’s about clean for me. I cleanse in the morning and I cleanse at night. You’ve got to get the makeup off! And I need products that help make my skin look good without makeup, because I don’t wear makeup when I’m not working. I just put little bits where I want to cover blemishes so my skin can breathe. My next step is usually a serum, and sometimes I use the Essence first, before my serum, and sometimes I mix it with my serum and put it on together. You can top it off with a cream if you’d like, but in the summertime, you don’t need to. The Essence is enough.
I watched an amazing clip on your YouTube channel about some of your pre-runway body prep including an incredible lymphatic drainage massage. Are there any treatments that you regularly engage in for your face in tandem with good skin care?
I try to do my facials—you need to if you’re traveling, or you’re in the sun a lot. I don’t wear a lot of sunblock on my skin because I break out from sunblock. So I like people to extract because you have to clean out your pores sometimes! And I do microneedling every once in a while, too.
These days, so much of good skin care comes down to good self-care. How do you prioritize yourself with such a busy work schedule—and a newborn at home!—not just physically but mentally, spiritually, etc.?
The water thing is huge for me, and I’m always, like, how can I make water fun? Growing up I wasn’t really raised on soda so we always had cordials that we mixed with water, and that’s what I still drink. And I try to eat the right food and take the right vitamins—vitamin D, vitamin C, B, zinc, fish oils. Good skin is so much about what you eat, too. And sleep! I try to get as much sleep as possible even though I have a young one now. When I was younger I really didn’t need that much sleep, but now I like my sleep. It kickstarts things and helps me be enthusiastic about the day ahead.

Eid al-Fitr 2022 Gift Guide: 11 Presents for Anyone Who Loves Beauty, Makeup, Skincare and Fragrances

Eid al-Fitr is a special time for everyone, and while we are almost past the halfway point of this Ramadan month, there is nothing better than prepping  for the celebration of the new moon by choosing gifts for the most special people in your life. After the period of fasting, Eid is a time to come together and share good times with friends and family. Make 2022’s Eid al-Fitr memorable with gifts that loved ones are sure to remember forever. Below, Vogue Arabia’s beautify gift edit for Eid al-Fitr 2022.
Loewe Paula’s Ibiza Electric EDT

Treat friends with this eccentric Eau de Toilette from Loewe this Ramadan. The woody floral scent is inspired by the Ibizan Balearic Islands known for its playful spirit, and a fragrance like this one should suit the friend who is usually the first to want to get together and celebrate after the long fasting month.
Aesop Aganice Aromatique Candle

Candles are always a lovely gift idea to give during Eid, and luxury brand Aesop’s latest Aganice Aromatique candle is described as “a place of many mythologies”. Inspired by historical Grecian stories, the enchanting scent includes a seductive clove and mimosa scent, with a hint of tobacco.
Lush Light the Night Bath Set

Why not celebrate the new moon with this beautifully wrapped gift box from Lush? The full set includes a decadent Sticky Dates Shower Gel and Light the Night lantern-shaped bath bomb. The cruelty-free brand has a whole range of gifts dedicated to the Holy Month of Ramadan.

A kit with a zesty kick to gift to skin care lovers this Eid, Sunday Riley’s pro-vitamin set promises to hydrate and illuminate skin whilst reducing the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation.

Guerlain Epices Exquises EDP

Inspired by an ode to the East, this seasoned fragrance is influenced by the aroma of coffee. The spicy blend of pepper and cardamom give the scent a unique tribute to Arabic cultures. Accented with gold packaging, the bottle honers the tonal sands of the desert, and couldn’t be more apt for Eid.
La Prairie  Skin Caviar Eye Cream

Skin can look worse for wear when drastic changes have been made to sleep patterns and diet, and the first skin issue to arise is likely to be puffy dark circles due to low water intake and lack of sleep. La Prairie’s caviar extract eye cream is designed to firm the under eye and reduce dark circles with ginseng and hyaluronic acid.

Another beauty set dedicated to this special time, the Myriam. K Paris seven-piece gift box is packed with hair goodies.  This luxurious set includes hair care and supplements including a power mask, detoxifying hair oil, and a supply of vegan hair vitamins.

Rituals Oud Candle Collection

A gift worth lighting every day, the Rituals Arabian-inspired candles last up to 50 hours once lit. The aromatic fragrance of the oudh and patchouli candle is enriched in rich spices, and comes in deep black and gold packaging that makes it the ideal gift for new homeowners, and iftar hosts.

Louis Vuitton’s Latest Fragrance Will Transport You to a Starry Night in Los Angeles

Louis Vuitton’s Cologne Perfume Collection introduces its latest addition with City of Stars, an evening cologne that pays homage to Los Angeles.

The fragrance was born out of a dialogue between Louis Vuitton and artist Alex Israel. Combining contemporary art with perfumery, City of Stars recalls master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s Cologne Perfume Collection while adding a scent that brings together citrus quintet, Tiare flower, and sandalwood for the ultimate sensual experience. “The brilliance of citrus illuminates the night and creates a paradox between shadow and light, like a tension that’s soothed by a veil of Tiare flower, the gentle scent of monoi,” says the French perfumer. “Essence of sandalwood and the caress of powdery musk give this perfume sophistication. That magnetic combination is what lets this evening cologne bring on the night and exude sensuality — as if to say, ‘this is forever’.”

City of Stars is an ode to the nighttime, a sentiment best expressed by Israel’s painting devoted especially to this fragrance. “It’s a more extroverted eau than its predecessors,” he says. “It’s radically focused on the special, shimmering atmosphere of a night in Los Angeles when the singular setting sun gives way to the city’s lights and spotlights that traverse the sky.”
Imitating the dazzling night stars reminiscent of the City of Angels, Israel has invited the eye to travel with his original work of an idealized Los Angeles. The painting by the American artist dresses the packaging for the bottle as well as the travel case and fragrance trunk.

Beauty Report: 8 Hair and Makeup Trends Ruling Spring/Summer 2022

Beauty Report: 8 Hair and Makeup Trends Ruling Spring/Summer 2022

Vogue Arabia, March 2022. Photo: Carlos Teixeira
The Spring/Summer 2022 season celebrates all things creative, with intense eyes, bursts of hypercolor, and exaggerated, textured hair. Read on for all the makeup and hair trends to keep up with.

Stain to See
Saint Laurent
Update a deep red lip with neutral skin texture, a natural eye look, and barely-there mascara for a relaxed vibe. Press the lip color into the skin for a fresh stain finish.
Color Clash 
Versace
Blue and green eyeshadow broke the rules at Versace, with the two-tone look one of the most memorable of the season. Replicate by using bold pigments applied with a damp brush – too much blending will age this strong look back to the 80s.
Vogue Arabia, March 2022. Photo: Carlos Teixeira
Shimmer Shimmy
Anna Sui
Spring’s fresh palette of blush pink, violet, terracotta, and sage, has been given a touch of frost with shimmery highlights, as seen at Anna Sui and Osman Uousefzada. Opt for glimmering sand hues to add warmth to the inner corners of the eyes.

Return to Joy
Moschino
Designers took a lighthearted approach with rainbows springing across eyes at Paul & Joe, sequined lips at Acne Studios, and bright bobs for Loewe. Choose happiness with a dash of unexpected color added to a neutral day look.

Color Catcher
Prabal Gurung
Freehand-blending neon pink created an aerosol effect at Prabal Gurung. Chloé co-opted the dayglo look for an extended wing and eyeliner in tropical peach, with Rochas taking the same shade one step further, underlining models’ cheekbones.

Clip ‘n’ Keep
Simone Rocha
90s style barrettes were given a sparkly glow-up, sweeping hair back at Tom Ford and Simone Rocha. Choose a classic bar shaped in silver or gold plating – plus diamanté – to keep the look modern.
Out of this world
Etro
Taking a detour to the surreal, Luar, Etro, Private Policy, and Mark Fast gave an otherworldly hint to their beauty looks. Add an intergalactic sheen to skin by mixing a silvery luminizer to liquid foundation or try an alien element like deep indigo lips for a bold evening look.
Out of line
Givenchy
Classic black kohl went offbeat with expressive shapes. Christian Dior chose a chic double-pronged wing, while Givenchy got creative with exaggerated lash outlines. Meet in the middle with Valentino’s modern demi-wing.

Straight ahead
Chanel
Hair was extra-long and super straight at Chanel and Versace, with volume espoused in favor of silky-smooth lengths. Get the look by using a smoothing treatment on towel-dried hair and while heat-straightening.
What are the biggest Spring/Summer 2022 beauty trends according to the experts?
Huda Kattan: “In the past, makeup was all about hiding and covering up imperfections, but now it’s going to a place that’s all about self-expression and doing something just for you.”
Ilham Mestour, Keune global artistic director:  “We’re going to see more natural hair fluffed out and allowed to do its own thing. The key is to have just the right amount of texture to give the style a relaxed, cool-girl feel.”
Vimi Joshi, celebrity makeup artist:  “Liner is back with a vengeance, as seen on Angelina Jolie and Julia Fox. I love the new Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Matte Eyeliner. The calligraphy brush tip glides across the eyes so easily and effortlessly for the perfect flick.”
Chris Schild, celebrity makeup artist: “I love the confidence in punk-inspired looks at Rick Owens, Marni, and Missoni this season – create this rebelliously bold graphic eye using a black eyeliner pen for super easy application.”

Abdulla Al Abdulla Teams Up With Fatima Almomen for a Brand New Skincare Launch

The new Fatima X Abdulla Celestial Serum launches today on Abdullaskincare.com, and retails at AED 205. Designed to be used after cleansing and toning, but before moisturizer application, the serum reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, adding extra moisture back into the skin and claiming to keep skin hydrated for a full 24 hours. The formula features a potent line-up of ingredients, including collagen, hyaluronic acid, mushroom extract Laricyl, and peptide Matrixyl 3000.

Almoman says that skincare has always been a passion of hers, making the decision to collaborate with Al Abdulla an obvious one. “[I] have made my vision come to life alongside my dear friend and entrepreneur Abdulla, whose brand is all about empowerment, [and] not to mention cruelty-free with a focus on sustainability. Our Celestial Serum uses the power of stem cells as a primary ingredient to target and repair damage on the skin. The result is a hydrated, refreshed, and a younger-looking complexion.” She shares that both her and Abdulla were deeply involved in the creation process from the packaging and formulation, to perfecting the scent and consistency. “The serum took us months to create and I’m so happy to finally announce this collaboration and we hope that [the] men and women who incorporate it in their daily routine love it as much as we do!”

“Working with Fatima was a no brainer. Fatima is one of my closest friends, not to mention an incredible entrepreneur, so she really was the vision I was looking for on this collaboration as she’s such an inspiring, amazing friend and beautiful woman who glows from within and without,” adds Al Abdulla. “[The serum is] truly is a wonder product that enhances micro collagen by moisturizing the skin, while correcting skin complexion and appearance.”

5 Beauty Trends From London Fashion Week To Try Before Everyone Else Does

5 Beauty Trends From London Fashion Week To Try Before Everyone Else Does

London Fashion Week was back in full swing for autumn/winter 2022, and designers delivered the drama. Conner Ives and Supriya Lele were feeling nostalgic, with lots of ’90s and Noughties references, while others like Halpern and David Koma were in the mood to party. There were some beautiful bridal moments, courtesy of Richard Quinn and Harris Reed, while Simone Rocha and Erdem offered something altogether darker. All of which was reflected in the hair and make-up.
Below, Vogue rounds up the best beauty trends from London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2022.
Embellishment
Y2K face gems at Conner Ives felt fun and fresh. Photo: Style Du Monde
For his runway debut, Conner Ives turned back the clock with his Y2K-themed collection. This was echoed in the beauty with visible under-eye concealer and ombré lips. But the stars of the show were the candy-colored gems that Miranda Joyce dotted around models’ faces. It felt fun and fresh and reminiscent of more carefree days. Embellishments featured a lot this season. At Simone Rocha, Thomas de Kluyver placed pearls and crystals around models’ eyes, echoing elements in the collection. Where Joyce’s crystals felt optimistic and playful, de Kluyver’s swan-like palette of black, white and red, which echoed Rocha’s inspiration, the tragic tale of The Children of Lir, felt dark and haunting.
Graphic lines
Miranda Joyce created graphic lines at Roksanda.
Graphic shapes and bold lines were another beauty staple this season. At Matty Bovan, Miranda Joyce channelled American footballers with a bold black or navy war paint stripe underneath the eye. Elsewhere, Thom Walker created exaggerated wings at Molly Goddard that had a very DIY feel to them, echoing the haphazardness of the collection, while Joyce create another kind of graphic eye at Roksanda, this time using much thinner lines, one above the eye and one below, and always going against the eye shape.
Kaleidoscopic hair
Josh Wood created soft psychedelic wigs at Matty Bovan.
Overall the mood at the autumn/winter 2022 shows felt celebratory. Collections were full of color, pattern and texture, which is something that was reflected in plenty of vibrant hair moments. At 16Arlington, Sam McKnight echoed the collection’s tie dye prints with hand-painted, feather-light strands of hair, while Syd Hayes and Josh Wood created soft psychedelic wigs at Matty Bovan.
A classic red lip
A classic red lip makes a statement at Harris Reed.
Nothing makes a statement quite like a red lip. And at Harris Reed, MAC’s director of make-up artistry Terry Barber used it to do just that, channelling ’70s disco with a brilliant matte red, which was further amped up with the addition of a bold eye for good measure. Likewise, global artistry director for Nars Jane Richardson broke through the darkness at Erdem with a striking red lip, which spoke to the classic and timeless Erdem style.
Flawless skin
Emilia Wickstead served gorgeous glowing skin.
In amongst the bold beauty moments, there was a focus on gorgeous, glowing skin. Lucia Pica created a flawless finish at Nensi Dojaka, and Naoko Scintu conjured a luminous glow at Emilia Wickstead. It was the same at Ahluwalia, Maximilian, and where visible, Richard Quinn.

Bella Hadid Reveals Her Favorite Cheat Meal, the Best Beauty Advice Gigi Hadid Ever Gave Her, and More

Bella Hadid Reveals Her Favorite Cheat Meal, the Best Beauty Advice Gigi Hadid Ever Gave Her, and More

Vogue Arabia, September 2017. Photo: Karl Lagerfeld
Bella Hadid has been baring it all lately. She’s been taking it all off and making headlines for it. You saw the pictures, right? The pictures of her crying, that is. Hadid took to Instagram late last year to share the subgenre of images way too many of us have on our phones—sadness selfies.
She’s finding other ways to feel present in her body too. She rejoined Victoria’s Secret in late 2021 to shoot a Valentine’s Day campaign for the brand that was, she tells Glamour, joyful, dance filled, and basically “the best time.” Hadid has spoken out about alleged harassment during her time as an “angel” modeling for the lingerie giant. But under the company’s new commitment to focus on women’s diverse bodies and needs, Hadid says her experience has been much different. “I feel empowered again,” she said in an interview about her return to the iconic brand. “I feel empowered in lingerie, instead of feeling like my body is some sort of moneymaker.”
Being vulnerable on main about mental health, speaking out about harassment, practicing genuine self-love—it’s all part of finding that feeling of empowerment. Working on a campaign with a talented woman photographer is a big part of it too, Hadid told Glamour. “Me and the girls just love to shoot together.  Zoey Grossman is one of my favorite people in the world. Every shoot with her becomes one of my favorite memories.”
What else does Bella Hadid to to make new memories? Read on for our latest installment of Your Fave’s Faves. Here, the 25-year-old shares her favorite book, the staples of her skin-care routine, and the wardrobe basic she says “never goes out of style.”

My favorite piece from the Victoria’s Secret shoot
My favorite piece from the shoot was probably the bright pink babydoll–the shoot was so fun and glamorous, and it was a cute, flirty outfit tied up with a bow.
The comfort food I always turn to
Pepperoni pizza, empanadas, or SmashBurger. Probably in that order.
My favorite recent TV show
Yellowstone!
The best thing in my closet right now
My favorite thing in my closet is my leather jacket. I know I can always throw it on over any outfit, even if it’s just something casual like a T-shirt and jeans. A leather jacket never goes out of style.

The last thing I bought
The coats for my coat drive with One Warm Coat and Bowery Mission. We recently partnered to do a coat and donation drive together to help get thousands of coats to New Yorkers, and I am inspired by their work every day.
My go-to skin-care products
I love zinc serums, great moisturizers, hyaluronic serum, and light night oils. They keep my skin healthy and refreshed, even if I’m busy with travel or shoots.
How I spend a day off
My favorite way to spend my days off are either doing something completely new and adventurous, or doing absolutely nothing. I am around a lot of different energies and people the majority of my life, so when I do have down time, I really like to recalibrate my soul.
The last great thing I read
I reread The Prophet by Khalil Gibran every few months. It’s my bible.
A beauty product that I’m obsessed with
My face roller or facial red-light therapy. It all comes back to my skin. Both leave me feeling refreshed and a little brighter.
A beauty tip I’ve received from my mom and sister
Easy: “Less is more!”

Adele Brings Hollywood Glamour to the Brit Awards in a Custom Black Armani Gown

Adele Brings Hollywood Glamour to the Brit Awards in a Custom Black Armani Gown

Photo: Getty
Queen of va, va voom dressing Adele was the jewel in the crown at this year’s Brit Awards. Dressed in a custom Armani Privé gown in keeping with the Old Hollywood glamazon aesthetic she and her stylist Jamie Mizrahi have been honing, the powerhouse singer looked every inch the global superstar coming back to celebrate how far she has come on home turf.
It’s been six years since Adele walked the Brits red carpet in a star-speckled sequined Valentino dress. Much has been made of her LA lifestyle, evident in her glowing skin and toned physique, but her glossy caramel blow-dry, immaculate eyeliner and infectious smile, remains the same. Armani, a brand synonymous with classic evening wear and the enduring romance of TinselTown, was the perfect choice for her homecoming.
The Armani sketch that started the whole story.
As Armani poster girl Julia Roberts once said of the red carpet original, “I am always very comfortable in Armani and that translates into confidence and ease.” Adele’s Brits red carpet moment spelled out effortless seductiveness on a night that was about the national treasure stealing our hearts all over again. True glamour of course comes from within – but her megawatt diamond jewelry (that rock!) certainly helped command the spotlight.
