MARKET DAY - EMIRATES TRADING

I GOT MY PATTERN PAPER FROM EMIRATES TRADING, MOST OF MY PENCILS, RULERS ETC.

LIGHT AS A FEATHER. NATURAL HAIRED BRUSH IS PERFECT FOR APPLYING SMALL AMOUNT OF POWDER UNDER THE EYE AREA.

THESE SYNTHETIC PAINT BRUSHES ARE PERFECT FOR LIQUIDS AND CREAMS SUCH AS LIQUID FOUNDATIONS, CONCEALERS, PAINTS POTS.

NATURAL HAIRED CRAFT BRUSH. PERFECT FOR CONTOURING THE EYES, TEMPLES AND FOR A SHARPER CHEEK BONE DEFINITION FOR A MORE EDITORIAL LOOK

You are probably wondering as to why a Fashion and Make Up Blog would feature a Craft Store, well, for one its a great hunt for inexpensive Make Up Brushes. And even though they are inexpensive, they magically do the work as well as the brushes from the Make Up brands that we have all been used to.

Aside from that reason, I want to share this information to those who wish to pursue a career in Fashion Design as this where I picked up most of my markers before flying to Milan to study. Not exactly cheap. Back in 2008, it was AED 31 per marker. They have a great selection of paper or different sizes, paper for pattern making, rulers, portfolio books, all kinds of paints, pencils etc! :)

So, before heading out to the Burjuman or to Dubai Mall to pick out new brushes, why don't you head to Emirates Trading for an inexpensive alternative. :)

Where is emirates trading?
I've been looking for cheap brush alternatives. In youtube most make up gurus would say Leow Cornell is the exact dupes of some mac brushes.

But leow cornell is not available here so... I had to ask my sis to buy for me. Still expensive since they have to ship it here. LOL.

I want to try local ones.
