for those of you braving the entire summer season in dubai, here is an insight in to what bareface were up to over the last quarter, in the cooler days...

models in town

models are leaving us for the fairer weather elsewhere, but the internationals brave enough to stick it out include melissa, loukia and miriam (who will be arriving mid-july).  victoria has just moved here from australia but she has limited availability so will be available for special bookings only.

  bareface models alla, bojana, emma, monja, nikola,
gabriele, rene, zirkea,
angela all graced the local
editorials over the last quarter... jordan

monja, cyndy and renee  all flew to amman for the day to shoot for jordan-based U magazine. this is their 3rd issue and bareface have provided all the models since their launch.


and further afield still
  german Maxim came to shoot their june issue at the beginning of the year using arabic models from bareface, with dennie on hand with her brushes and powder

campaigns and advertising

bojana, anita, narsis, lorenzo and jelena all strut their stuff in the may campaign for the mall of the emirates.  kirsten styled the shoot and tanya rex did the hair and make up. 

coupled with this was a style guide that had male model robert modeling the latest fashion for their ‘6 style hit’ feature with dennie and lorna behind the brushes.

  bojana was the face of Nayomi’s summer 07 collection and renee was selected for Harvey Nichols.

if you haven’t heard about it, you must have been walking around with cotton wool in your ears and your eyes firmly shut…salik has now been introduced and the faces behind the campaign are bareface models saleh and mona

  as if you could call it work – yvette, alex, omer and model of the month kristina
all had fun shooting Wild Wadi’s new campaign…

bareface goes hip hop

iranian singer and songwriter farzab shot two music videos with LA based director alec cartio and local freelance producer pascal baboudjian.

‘c c baby’ with international natalia shot around the souks, and ‘dance’ with hip hop dancers al, wahid, louisa, sophie, hiba and steph shot between the studio and sheikh zayed road.

the great beauty debate
