Brow & Lash specialist - Dubai
Suman Jalaf's journey began at an early age, when she first began to explore the fundamentals of what it takes to achieve true beauty without the use of excessive cosmetics, and instead returning to the core aesthetics of a natural look.
With a background in make-up artistry, graphic design and fine art, Suman has used her exacting aesthetic eye coupled with her many years of threading and lash lifting to sculpt and maintain some of the most inspired brows, lashes and semi-permanent makeup around the world.
And it’s her natural bespoke technique which Suman is best known for. While every face is unique, and every skin type is different, Suman carefully considers and tailors each brow and lash treatment to suit the contours, personality, and preferences of every client. Unsurprisingly, Suman has amassed a loyal following including Royals from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, models Kate Moss and Poppy Delevigne, actresses Goldie Hawn and Emilia Fox, Bollywood stars Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, and top athletes, celebrities and influencers.
The award-winning ‘Best Brow Specialist in the UK’ travels around the world from Dubai to Geneva, Doha to Johannesburg, and from the Barbados to Monaco for pop-up residences at the Four Seasons, St Regis, RitzCarlton, Shangri-La and W Hotels to tend to the brows and lashes of her global clientele. When Suman is not travelling around the world she can be found, along with her expert team, at her BrowsBySuman Beauty Atelier in Chelsea, London and at her concession Hershesons UK on Oxford Street (London).
For more information, check out Suman’s recent features in: Emirates Woman, Vogue India, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Glamour Magazine (series), The Times Kuwait, British Muslim Magazine, This Morning (UK National TV), Elle India and Grazia India (series). A select list of older articles can be found on Suman’s Instagram and website.
I take my energy gummies when I wake up and always drink a pint of warm water if you can with lemon. I call my mum to say good morning and thank the universe for a new day :)
I do 10min of mindfulness medication from my iPhone app and then u grab a banana or protein boost so I’m set for 30/45min gym session before I head to work so it sets me for the day and of course that black coffee to feed my soul the fuel along with a light healthy breakfast hour later as I can’t eat first thing in the morning.
These are life changes and balances toy life as I want a healthy lifestyle and health comes first. I learnt this the hard way when I used to over work and burn myself out.
When I met with Sebastien from rite; the first thing I have asked him “ do you have any gummies for hair, skin & nails?” He told me yes it’s coming ☺ So of course, my favourite is GLOW, very efficient, lovely rose taste and appealing! It’s working very well for my hair and it’s complimentary with my daily beauty routine.
Don't worry what other people think. Personality begins where comparison leaves off. Be unique. Be memorable. Be confident. Be proud.
Trust your instincts. What good is intuition if you let second-guessing drown it out? The worst enemy of success is self-doubt.
Learn something new every day. Have the mindset of a student. Never think you are too old to ask questions or know too much to learn something new.

Healthy glowing skin starts from the inside out.
In this heat it is essential to drink plenty of water and use a moisturizer or mist spray.
It is so important to take daily supplements and vitamins, stay away from artificial colouring and excess sugar as this can cause breakouts and leave you feeling sluggish.
I really like the Glow Gummies. I love when my skin looks great, and having a little extra help from the rite gummies help. I also love that it supports growth and strength of my hair & nails, 2 major benefits I'm looking for at the moment. And the taste is lovely, raspberry and rose mixed together, it works wonder!
Be good to your skin, you will wear it everyday for the rest of your life. I know all skin experts say the same thing, but prevention is the best protection against aging. Use SPF 35 every day!!! Do not forget your hat if you are going to be outside in direct sunlight especially in the Middle East.

As a chef point of view ☺ Eggs for breakfast, slow down, take time to eat relaxed. Eating on the go is not recommended. Try to bake & roast food. Vegetables & fruits in daily diet. Cook more at home.
Energy gummies for sure, as a chef coffee can become a big part of your day! I found that 2 Energy gummies per day gave me a much healthier lift, a much more natural boost than coffee.
