I am a believer in homemade gifts. I think they are special and with so many family and friends birthday’s and celebrations I attend here what do you buy people that have everything?
Or perhaps you don’t have the budgets for over the top gifts (which I don’t!).
I had this photo of Natalia where I did her makeup for a photo shoot by the wonderful Dubai fashion photographer Fanny Turcotte.
Natalia is very Chanel Chic, vintage 60’s/70’s style so I made this little poster and had it printed in a frame. You could also print it on canvas at any of the kiosks around Dubai.
Anyone can do this – I did it Powerpoint and formatted the pictures into pop art style. The entire gift cost me 100AED yet it is special and personalized to her.
Photographer: Fanny Turcotte – firstname.lastname@example.org
Makeup by me: sleek eye shadow palette, black liquid eyeliner Maybelline, Tom ford foundation. Fake H&M eyelashes.
Printed – at Kodak stores on photo paper for 30AED
