The concept of beauty in the Middle East is a vast and varied subject. With a history steeped in cross-cultural integration, there are many similarities, yet so many differences. The Arab woman has been constructing her own identity within the world of cosmetics for thousands of years, and to this day is still reinventing beauty ideals. Now one of the fastest-growing regions in the world when it comes to makeup and cosmetic procedures, we’re bringing together some of the biggest names in beauty to discuss how and why the industry is on the rise like never before. Head to The Dubai Mall on Monday, November 19, where the panel – moderated by Vogue Arabia Beauty Editor Alexandra Venison – will take place at the main stage of Vogue Loves Fashion Avenue.
