Mouza Alabbar, Co-Founder of Alabbar Enterprises, talks us through her beauty routine.

Talk us through your morning routine.

The first thing I do when I wake up is making a cup of coffee, light a Jo Malone candle, and spend time meditating. In terms of beauty, I’m very minimalistic. I cleanse my face with Clarins Gentle Foaming Hydrating Cleanser, then apply the purifying toning lotion, and moisturize with the Silky Cream moisturizer. Following my skincare routine, I apply very natural makeup just to enhance my features and feel fresh.

How does your evening routine differ?

In the evening, I focus on unwinding from the day. I always light candles and spray Dakhoun. In regards to skincare my routine it’s the same, I cleanse, tone, and then moisturize with the Clarins restorative night cream.

What are your go-to skincare products?

My go-to skincare products include anything from the Clarins line, which I’ve been using as long as I can remember. I love that the products are straightforward and effective.

Are you a fan of masks?

I don’t usually tend to use face masks, I keep my skincare routine minimalistic.

How would you describe your approach to makeup?

I love wearing very natural makeup, I usually apply a soft base with the Clarins BB cream and Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer. I love to dress it up with a cat-eye using the Charlotte Tilbury Bedroom Black Kohl, and a full lash.

What can always be found in your makeup bag?

I always have nude lipstick and mascara on hand.

Which fragrances are you loving at the moment?

I have always loved Quelques Fleurs L’Original Collection Privée. This scent is very special to me, as it’s the scent my mother wore throughout my childhood, and still wears to this very day. Wearing it every day brings back fond memories, and It will forever be my favourite.

How do you choose your evening fragrance?

For the evening, I love fragrances with musk, rose and Iris.

Talk us through your hair routine.

My hair routine is to shampoo with the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oleo Complexe Sublime Cleansing Shampoo and follow with the Nutritive conditioner. After the shower I apply Olaplex leave-in conditioner, then I dry and style my hair. I tend to go with a voluminous wavy look.

What is the most unusual item in your makeup bag?

To be completely honest, there’s nothing unusual in my makeup bag. My makeup bag essentials are my eyelash curler, and a beauty blender to blend my makeup throughout the day.
