Sarra Fleur Abou-El-Haj, Beauty Photographer
Sarra's beauty stats: 33; mid-length blonde hair; green eyes; olive skin tone.
Beauty secret: "As a beauty and fashion photographer, I've worked with a lot of makeup artists, so naturally I've really become interested in cosmetics. My number-one beauty tip is to drink tons of water your skin absorbs your makeup throughout the day and can dry out quickly.
"My signature look is to do a neutral face with bold, red lips. It's definitely a statement look that I get a ton of compliments from!"
Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream
"This face cream is simply the best. It makes your skin so smooth, and it's also a great base for the rest of your makeup to stick to."

"I love this stuff. I put it on using the ends of my fingertips, starting in the middle of my face and then fanning it out toward the edges. I follow up with Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Éclat Radiant Touch Concealer and set it all with MAC Loose Powder."

NARS Semi-Matte Lipstick in Red Lizard
"This is my go-to lip color (although in the summer, I'll switch it up with NARS's fuchsia color, Funny Face). I just love it — it's bold and beautiful! I apply it with a lip brush to get flawless, allover coverage. Then I prime and set it with MAC's lip liner in Naked."

Fresh Fruit Lemon Sheet Mask from The Face Shop
"This is a real skin-saver. It's cool and relaxing — I leave it on for 15 minutes, and I feel completely rejuvenated after! Its a great way to unwind at the end of the day."
