Any iconic Kim Kardashian West or Kylie Jenner beauty look you can think of was likely done by celebrity makeup artist Ariel Tejada. From unforgettable Halloween costumes, including West’s 2017 Cher and Jenner’s 2018 Barbie, and legendary Met Gala looks—Jenner’s all-lavender glamor from this year ring a bell?—to the sisters’ various campaign shoots, like the KKW x Kylie collab, Tejada was the cosmetic genius behind all of them.
This weekend, local beauty enthusiasts can learn how to replicate such glam from the 24-year-old “Makeup by Ariel” artist himself in the Dubai Mall during an exclusive meet-and-greet experience with Lebanese actress Nadine Nassib Njeim. The former Miss Lebanon known for her flawless skin has joined forces with Make Up For Ever for their “Master Your Complexion” campaign to divulge her impeccable coverage secrets alongside the makeup professional at Sephora Saturday evening for an hour.
This won’t be the first time the pair have teamed up with Make Up For Ever, with the first being a clip where the two beauty experts debuted the line of “Ultra-HD Generation” products on Instagram in a makeup trial video.
Tejada released a portion of the tutorial on his Instagram profile and the full demonstration on IGTV to announce his upcoming visit to Dubai, while Njeim took to Twitter with a promise of further information soon and “sweet surprises” at the event. Although Njeim visited Dubai last December for the third edition of the Arab Social Media Influencers Summit, where she was honored with the Culture and Arts Award for her positive impact on the region, this will be Tejada’s first visit to the UAE.
Tejada first rose to social media fame when Jenner sent him a private message, asking to let her know the next time he’s in Los Angeles so they could work together. Tejada immediately booked a flight to California and met up with her the following week. Fast forward four years and Jenner is calling him to work his magic for almost every event and gifting him a diamond ring for his birthday.
