Nautical Nails & Toes!


Hey beauties! If you think this nail art looks familiar, you're correct! This weeks "Pin-Up" Nautical theme was inspired by my "I Heart My Sailor" Nail Art from two years ago. This time, instead of hand painting, I'm using a few various nail polish appliqués and taking the design a bit further. I rarely match my nails to my pedi, but this summery Sailor theme was too cute to pass by, so I also implemented it in dressing up my toesies. Check out my pedi and my inspiration below the break and let me know which version of this design you like the most!

Summer Style: Kaftans & Corals


Quick post today beauties, just wanted to share my latest obsession for Asa Kaftans "Lagos" kaftan-dress, designed by my amazing friend Asa Soltan. Asa picked the perfect high and low trendy style and the most luxurious snakeskin pattern, and this combo made the dress so versatile and flattering. Not only is it the perfect glamorous cover-up for the beach, but it's also just a stunning piece that can dress up any hot summer night when worn with heels. The best part is that the kaftan takes minimal styling since it's already such a statement piece. Just add your favorite coral lipstick or nails and you're good to go!

Summer Wine Inspo: Chardonnay Coastal Beauty


Hey beauties! If you follow me on Snapchat, you've probably witnessed some of my ritualistic wine twirls, tastings and sips as a reward after a long production day. I admit, I do love to unwind avec un verre -- who doesn't? -- and find it so relaxing after work. Ever so often, Lee and I get to enjoy a bit of business with pleasure when wine and work cross paths. Today is one of those lucky days and I'm so excited to introduce my love for wine to my beauty blogging venture. Before I tell you about my summer special wine collab, let me take it back and explain why this is so up my alley!

My love affair for the beauty of wine started a few years ago when I spent some time living in Paris. I began to appreciate it not just for its taste or the good times, but also for the intricacies of wine making and pairing, not to mention the story that it told. Each wine has its own mood and attitude that can be interpreted through art, beauty and fashion. Today, I'm thrilled to announce my Summer Beauty collab with Chloe Wine, probably my most fun-filled collab to date! For the next few summer months, I'll be creating makeup looks, sharing outfits and video tutorials inspired by some of my favorite Chloe wines and today's post is the first look from the series, a coastal take on beauty and fashion, inspired by Chardonnay.

Hello beauties! Something blue is the air... Bridal season is here and I'm embracing the romantic spirit. This week's hand-painted nail art was loosely inspired by white henna, and is something I thought I bride could wear on her special day. Me? Well, I wear it just because... I love the pale blue shade and the subtle texture that the white designs create on top.

"MUA-Inspired" NAIL ART


Hello beauties! I wasn't planning on sharing this nail art, since it is well past the IMATS and all... but on second thought, I figured it's never too late to post makeup-inspired nails, which I hand-painted last week for the famous makeup convention here in NY. I went all out and this just might be my favorite nail art of all time... second only to my Game of Thrones nail art. What do you think? Would you wear this? Which is your favorite nail? Mine personal fave is the mirror pinky and the contour face chart. All product details can be found on my IG: @MaryamNYC :)


bisous,


Maryam Maquillage

Eyeliner Finder + Four Liner Looks


Bonjour mes belles!! In today's post, I'm covering one of my favorite makeup mediums and one of most ancient types of cosmetics, the Eye Liner. In my time of blogging, I've gotten tons of questions about different kinds of liners, how to use them and which looks suit each one best. Today, I'm addressing all the FAQ's, narrowing the topic down to four most commonly used liners and giving you four individual looks to try with each one. In this post, I'm wearing all Lancome liners as the brand exemplifies superior liners in each of the four categories.

Spring Beauty: Mixed Patterns & Prints


Hello beauties! My fingers and toes are so ready for warm weather -- I'm anticipating lots of corals, pastels and heavy metals coming up this season and into the summer. This week's nail art is a hodgepodge of such themes, focusing on texture, color and detail. I used three nail polish appliqués from Incoco (Coral Crush, By The Sea & New Directions), cut them up into strips, embellished and mix-n-matched to create my own custom designs, then threw in some hardcore glitter nails to complete the set. I sealed everything with gel top coat for extra shine and longevity. I dunno about you, but I'm LOVING this one. It is so very me and so very Spring!!!
