Minnie Minors

Lose You To Love Me (by Selena Gomez)

Mushk never gets it wrong with her killer looks & style. This pastel coloured, tropical inspired lengha and diamante encrusted choli by Shehla Chatoor ticks all the right boxes!

Aleeha Badat

Mushk Kaleem

Mehek Saeed Mehek stuns in a multi coloured sari & embellished bustier blouse by Arjumand Bano. We absolutely love her straight long bob, the fun novelty bag & that gorgeous plum lipstick.

Aleeha is the epitome of effortless chic in this elegant lehnga choli by Mahgul. We love the minimal work that stands out in a sea of over bedazzled joras. Extra points for the pared back makeup & subtle accessories.

Nikhar Riaz Shazah Ayub

Aymen Hikmat Aymen is a dream in an intricately worked gown by Saira Shakira. The sleeveless silhouette ensures that this heavily embellished ensemble doesn’t swamp Aymen’s petite frame & her simple updo highlights her jewellery to perfection.

Always at the fashion forefront, Nikhar proves that you don’t need kaam to make a statement this shaadi season. Pleated details, ethereal layers & delicate lace make sure she shines in this ivory ensemble by Sehrish Rehan.

Never one to make a fashion misstep, Shazah redefines modern glamour this wedding season. This uber chic all black outfit by Umaima Mustafa, showcases her beautiful figure & all we can say is va va voom! And let’s not forget that gorgeous diamond set.

Products we can’t live without!

This week we bring you Team Weekend’s tried & tested holy grail products! Check out the locally available items to add to your personal arsenal.


TTLE O B A N I SPMA agnesium Oil

PKR 600.00

NOvember 10, 2019 | 34

This easy to use water based spray is a true God send for all the parts of our body that ache and cramp! The human body doesn’t produce magnesium on its own, so external sources (diet) are absolutely vital! It’s likely that you’re not getting sufficient magnesium from your food intake & a deficiency can lead to headaches, anxiety, diabetes, hypertension, cramps & insomnia. Just spray this oil onto freshly showered skin (the soles of the feet are a great place) anywhere on your body you feel tension or pain. We love using this product at night as it helps us fall into a relaxed sleep quickly.


CONATUt lipRbaAlmL Peppermin

PKR 275.00

While most lip balms actually make our lips even more chapped over time due to mineral oil being the main ingredient, this organic & 100% natural option is truly a Winter savior! Helping to keep our lips smooth & hydrated, the beeswax, Vitamin E & Shea Butter formula keeps moisture sealed in. The texture is hydrating without being too thick or greasy & even without any artificial fragrance the peppermint flavor smells divine. We love the slightly tingly sensation upon application & the no fuss, no leak packaging!

Clarity Body Cream

Mana Beauty

This Anti Oxidant & Multi Vitamin Formula is one of our favorite moisturizers. Super hydrating without being at all cloying on the skin, this cream promises to detoxify and calm. Especially with the current levels of air pollution it is absolutely vital to protect our skin to maintain its suppleness & elasticity. Soothing ingredients like Oat Milk (especially effective against eczema & dryness), Rose Water, Lavender & Chamomile Blue oil calm down stressed out skin. Add this to your beauty basket for skin that glows!

Spa in a bVitoCtt&leE Serum Advanced

PKR 1,950.00

If your skin is looking dull & discolored because of the toxic smog conditions around the country, this product is one to add to your beauty rotation. With potent Vitamin C & E designed to repair damaged this Serum promotes collagen production, evens and brightens the complexion and significantly boosts hydration levels. Use it twice daily on cleansed skin, underneath your moisturizer for a much clearer visage! Simply take a few drops and pat (not rub) it on your face and neck to heal sun & pollution damage, slow down aging and lighten scarring & pigmentation.
