Who says it’s costly to look good?
After spending months in lockdown, beauty trends and skincare routines have flooded our Instagram feed, giving us a reason to add them on our ‘Must try beauty list’ this year. The notion of having to spend big to get the best results is a bit of a myth these days in our view, so without going overboard or causing a dent in your wallet, TishTash has curated the perfect beauty guide to help you spruce up your beauty routine.
Let’s face it!
Consider masking the ultimate therapy session that we all need at least once a week. With long continuous hours spend under the AC, your skin can feed dry and dehydrated without you noticing it. There’s no better way to see instant results just before a date night or dinner out with the girls, than this frugal investment to your skincare routine.
Product suggestion: Skin Republic Two Step Brightening, just Dhs 27 available in Waitrose and on noon.com. This dual part facial treatment has all the essential ingredients to remove your dead skin cells and improve your skin texture immediately. Leaving your skin with a smooth surface, will let your makeup look flawless and last even longer than expected! After the two-step treatment, skin will appear brighter, smoother and enviably youthful.
Tish Tash Tip: Don’t underestimate the prep stage before applying your sheet mask. It’s essential to wash your make-up off and ensure your mask adheres to your face almost like it’s another layer of skin, rub it in circular motions before taking that quick power nap while you leave it on.
Aloe’ us to explain
It’s important to pick a night cream that specifically addresses your main skin care concerns such as fine lines, dark spots and hyperpigmentation. However, finding an effective pocket-friendly moisturizer can be a daunting task but we have the perfect serum to help you hone in on particular issues.
Product suggestion: Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule, Dhs 336, Available on misshame.com – This hydrating product energies, repairs and restores your skins elasticity with a patented ingredient, Pro ferment α™ to boost the penetration of 10 active ingredients in the formula.
Tish Tash Tip: As ampoules are super charged serums with strong active ingredients, we recommend using a finite amount to add that extra hint of hydration after a stressful week and also last you for a while.
Highlight of the routine
With summer winding down, there’s no need to get rid of that dewy glow that brings a pop to your face. No make-up look is complete without a highlighter, it’s perfect for adding glow to the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, adding a hint under the brows also helps your skin catch the light and makes you seem more youthful and awake. However, there’s no need to overspend on highlighters, all you need is a formula to gracefully compliment your skin-tone.
Product suggestion: Lottie London, Ultra glow – Loose Highlighter Pure Loose Highlighter Powder Rose Gold, Dhs39, Available on glambeaute.com. This subtle glowy highlighter is definitely worth the hype leaving your skin with a sheer touch of radiance. You can use it with a sponge or your fingertips, for more of a natural look too.
Tish Tash Tip: If it’s loose translucent shimmer powder like this one from Lottie London, you can always mix it with your foundation for that effervescent glow.
Pout on a budget
Finding a pigmented food-proof lipstick on a budget sounds like a dream! Well, it doesn’t have to be, we’ll help you reacquaint yourselves with those shelves of lipsticks that meet your price point while keeping them moisturized.

Tish Tash Tip: Another beauty hack is exfoliating your lips, before applying that super creamy lipstick on. To save the bucks, you can even DIY your own sugar scrub with honey and lemon.
Now there’s simply no need to fret about looking good while cutting back on spending. So, don’t worry my beauties! You don’t have to sacrifice gorgeousness when pinching those pennies!
