Goodbye Amplearabia, Hello HeenaMak

You know what is one of the scariest thoughts in life? That everything will stay the same forever.

And I’ve been troubled by these thoughts of steadiness that no longer feel like comfort, but like a poor ceiling you’ve been staring for years. So in an attempt to switch my ways and get on with new beginnings, I changed a few things around, stripped my ample arabia identity and let it all go!

I’d like to welcome you all to HelloHeenaMak.com.

I hope you welcome this change as much as I am and I hope you follow my journey there šŸ™‚

Thank You for all your amazing support!

KIKO Milano Product Review + Check Ins

Affordable brands that really pack a punch are everyone’s favourite! They’re an absolute staple that you don’t feel guilty about re-purchasing or splurging in every other color that is out there. I’ve just been having a love-affair with my Kiko finds. It’s a fairly new brand in the UAE and only available at MCC and DCC, but well worth the trip. I have done a whole YouTube video that you can check out below with my first impressions; but if you want to see my check-ins wearing all the products for 8 hours and more with my final thoughts, you have to do a double whammy; read up and watch next.

LIFE UPDATE

Some writers paint a pretty picture when they write, I’m not one of them. But painting a real one, yea, that sure sounds like me.Ā The sun is setting and I assure you from the hustle and bustle of where I live, there’s no place to catch that action; so I’m sitting on the dinner table, sipping some camomile tea whilst watching the light get dimmer and dimmer. I guess it’s time to not just sip the tea but spill it.Ā  Read More

Gryffindor Makeup Tutorial + Urban Decay Moondust Palette

Accio Makeup!

When I think of translating the spirit of Gryffindor into a makeup look, I think of burgundy’s, gold’s and warm hues of orange. So it’s no surprise that I’ve used up some of the most iconic shades associated with this esteemed Harry Potter house to create my rendition in form of makeup.
