Salma Jama Shares Her Best Make-Up Hack, Beauty Secrets and Go-To Product For Skin Emergencies

The 21-year-old Finnish hijabi street-style star shares her love for a glossy brown lip,

her daily skincare regiment and her fondness for Cinnamon buns..

MAKE-UP & FRAGRANCE


Favourite make-up brand: “Fenty Beauty is a winner as they have make-up for everyone and every skin tone. Tell me, who doesn’t love Fenty?”

Make-up hack: “The more blush the better! I even like to use a little bit on my nose.”

Go-to lip colour: “Everyone who knows me, knows how much I love a brown lip and lip gloss combo. Of course, I always use Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow (Dhs95).”

Mascara: “I’ve been wearing L'Oréal’s Paris Telescopic Carbon mascara (Dhs55) for few years. I love how it gives volume to my natural lashes without feeling that I’m wearing something.”

Signature scent: “Lancôme Idôle Eau De Parfum (Dhs470) - I´m obsessed with it!”

HAIR


Bad hair day secret: “All my hijabi sisters out there can relate: there are no bad hair days, not that I can recall.”

Go-to hairstylist: “Myself - I’ll cut it at most twice per year, which works for me.”

Treatments: “I use Hair Lust Hair Growth & Protection Hair Mask once per week (Dhs105).”

SKIN & BODY


Skincare routine: “I’m really into my skincare and put a lot of energy into my morning and evening routine. I start with Simple Refreshing Facial Wash(Dhs31.50), as it’s not too harsh on my skin. I then tone and moisturise with CeraVe Facial Moisturising lotion SPF25 (Dhs65) for the day and in the evening I’ll use a cream rich in Vitamin E like Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Cell Revitalise Moisturiser (Dhs237)

Go-to product for skin emergencies: “Ole Henriksen Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner (Dhs106) - it´s honestly the best.”

Skincare secret: “I only wear make-up up to two times per week at most. I find wearing no make-up has really helped my skin and I feel good about.”


Miracle product: “I can´t live without Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs And Rosewater (Dhs65). I use it every morning, night and throughout the day.”

Go-to manicure shade: “I rarely wear nail polish but if I do it will be white, especially in the summer.”

INTERVENTION


Attitude to injectables: “I believe that everyone should make their own decision, but personally I wouldn’t to do anything to my skin.

I think everybody is perfect in their own way.”


DIET & FITNESS

Guilty food pleasure: “I would die for cinnamon buns, they are my absolute my favourite. Actually, I’m craving one right now!”

Breakfast: “Usually I eat two slices of rye bread with cheese and cucumber on top. With my mango and banana smoothie on the right and a glass of water on my left. It truly boosts my mornings.”
