Hair and makeup by Hanan Helme

Hanan is one of the sweetest girls I know. Anyone and everyone who meets her, would immediately love her. Her charming disposition matches her clean makeup style and perfect hair — it’s hard not to stare. She tells me about a candle business that she started two years ago that focuses on the power of scents and quotes. I went to the website, Quofic, and I love that too. Her candles are lovingly made by hand at home, using organic soy wax and essential oils from Australia or UK. Now it’s just a matter of deciding which one to buy. Apart from candles, one look at her Instagram tells us that Hanan is into makeup as well. And her mantra: “Makeup every day has to be less than 15 minutes”, plus she doesn’t use gadgets or even brushes, just her hands.
