Her journey into makeup was a very happy accident. She had been looking for a makeup artist in Dubai, but couldn’t find anyone that could create the flawlessly natural look she wanted so she decided to teach herself.  The process of learning about a person’s face, complexion and features then creating a look that’s uniquely for them is addictive.  Before she knew it, she was training to become a professional MUA and she never looked back.

 

Having Arabic Roots, she was fond of fragrances and started with her own brand “Seasons of Oud”. A fragrance brand that offers variety of products. Using her own creativity in the products, Safa wants her brand to reach out to everyone.
