UAE. Born and brought up in Dubai, 26 year old Air Arabia Airlines crew officer Kanchan Serai has been voted August's Face of Wafi and gives some tips for fashion and beauty success.
She says: “During the long, hot UAE summer you should have a healthy collection of new skirts, Capri pants, sarongs, shorts, dresses and cotton shirts to remain cool and trendy. I’ve really liked the floral print dresses and handbags and the tank tops that have been around this year. I also believe everyone should have at least one hot black dress with a great pair of sandals for the evening.
“My best makeup tip in this heat and humidity is to use foundation only when absolutely necessary, choose eye pencil over eye liner, use waterproof mascara and wear lip balm or moisture-rich lipstick as often as you can. It’s very important to use sunscreen to protect from the sun, which can permanently damage your skin.
“It’s an honour for me to be voted Face of Wafi and I hope this will help promote my modelling work as to be the winner of this competition shows I’ve the attitude, style and elegance to be a success. With my vouchers I’ll look for an elegant dress in Max Moda and Miss Sixty because their style suits me well, then I’ll relax with some food in one of my favourite restaurants, Asha’s, to spend the dining vouchers.”
Karchan, whose parents are originally from Bombay in India, loves swimming and working out her credit card while shopping for new styles. An aspiring actor and model in her spare time, she loves nothing more than showing off her new outfits while socialising and meeting new people.
