Self-taught makeup artist, beauty blogger and entrepreneur Zareen Shah was born in Bahrain, raised in Dubai and is one of the UAE’s most renowned makeup artists. She is always on the go, rushing from private makeup bookings to editorial shoots, fashion shows to meetings with distributors for her business. Her look often revolves around clothes that are comfortable and convenient. She opts for loose, flowing pieces that don’t restrict her movements or compromise her flair for fashion.
Zareen’s Filipino and Pakistani heritage also feature heavily in her style, which mixes high street trends with flea market finds. She spends vast amounts of time in the UK and US and is often spotted browsing through stalls in Portobello Road in London and Korea Town in New York. In Dubai, her favorite shopping destinations include Reiss, New Look, Ms. Selfridge, Iconic, Catherine Malandrino in Saks, and Boutique 1.
At the moment, Zareen has a self-proclaimed addiction to jersey hijabs, statement rings, peplum jackets and harem pants. Despite her petite frame, she loves her flats but always keeps a pair of heels in her BMW X6 for those last-minute nights out.
