Ever since I got to know that THE GREAT MARIO is coming to Dubai for his masterclass along with DROP DEAD GORGEOUS KIM KARDASHIAN , I wanted to get myself enrolled in it until I found out the fees. The fees made me cry and I got so disappointed and dishearted because 1700$ was something I couldn’t afford for 1 class. Anyways I made up my mind and convinced myself that In sha ALLAH I will get this chance in future.This happened in August 2016 and his class was then schdeuled for October, but suddenly the class got postponed to January 13th. I again started thinking wishing if I could meet him for once.
Anyways a day before his masterclass my whole snapchat family was posting about how they are excited to attend his class , yes almost my whole snapchat family was here in Dubai for the class. I felt so bad cox I wished ‘kash maine bhi class book ki hoti’ ‘mai dubai reh kar bhi ni ja sakti’. And then this sadness prolong when I saw people sharing LIVE coverage direct from the class. It was Friday and my husband was away for Jummah Prayer and I was home literally crying *sigh*. I actually cried and was so sad that I couldn’t enjoy the delicious food my husband brought for lunch after namaz. Half day was passed when I saw that on 14th January, the very next day Mario will have Q/A session DSF at Beauty District in Dubai Mall and then he will have a meet and greet session at Sephora where he will sign his Makeup by Mario Palette which is a collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills.
I was still sad but was hoping to get this chance cox I knew there will a huge public there at Dubai Mall too.
I was excited but more than I was conscious about reaching mall before time cox I didn’t want to miss both the sessions. I kept thinking what should I wear.
Shirt : Aeropostale
Necklace: Mirina Collection
I reached mall 10 minutes before the event has to started, I got nervous and I literally ran towards the beauty district booth and the moment I reach there I was asked if I was invited . I got confused but I said yes, the girl then asked me my name and I was like ‘ab tu mai gayee’ cox there was no specific invite and the event was for all.But guess what there was my name in the list. She gave me the access card and I ran, the moment I reached He entered the stage and I was like phewww .
I never realized this card has a meaning and after the session was ending the host of the event said that people having access card can come and have a selfie with him. I was like shooot what , I couldn’t find the way to go inside where people with cards were actually sitting cox the sitting area was not open for everyone. Like if I knew I could also get a seat for whole session. Anyways, I ran towards the entrance and tried finding out the girl who gave me the card but she was not there so I asked another guy to help me getting in. The guy said I should ask the organizer and after asking where they are I again ran towards them and asked the girl sitting there to take me in. She nodded and couldn’t say a word cox she was eating something. I was like please be quick cox the selfie session is started, she smiled and held my hand and took me straight inside. I was so so so thankful to her that I have no words. Selfie session was started and the organizers were asking people not to waste time by taking selfie cox professional photographers were taking the pictures. And I listened to them and I didn’t use my phone which I regretted cox everyone was taking pictures/snap. The organizer said I will get the picture but I still didn’t get the picture. I was still happy cox I managed to take selfie from far.
Then it was time to run Sephora… And when I went,there was a line too .. but I was glad I was not that behind. And then we all started waiting for Mario to enter Sephora…
This time I thought I am going to take the selfie ‘chahay kuch b ho jaye’ and luckily I bought the palette too so I knew I will also get his sign. When my turn came the girl there said to keep the phone aside cox we are giving print outs of the picture right away… Look that’s why I like Sephora
Finally , I got the chance to meet him again and talk to him for a while again. And yes, he is the SWEETEST PERSON. like no attitude at all. After getting a picture plus his sign on my palette I collected the print out right away…
Inspite of the fact that I couldn’t attend his master class , I was damn happy to meet him twice. Talked to him twice, got picture with him twice , and yes got palette signed by him *MA SHA ALLAH* . People who attended his class surely must have learned amazing techniques and they are for sure very lucky. I learned few tips when he the host was asking to him few makeup tips in Q/A session. One of the tip he gave for flawless skin, I have tried and I absolutely LOVED it . The best part this tip is best for dry skin like me..
