If vintage MAC lip gloss was your jam, Sana Ansari gets you.

If you’re after cut creases, smokey eyes, and matte lips, Sana Ansari has you covered. As a Dubai-based beauty blogger, she mixes the latest makeup fads with some Middle Eastern flare. The results are uniquely gorgeous looks.

With her beauty brand growing, Sana launched her blog,
Sana’s Ramblings, to talk fashion and lifestyle with her fans. She shares honest reviews of products and you can even find the occasional Sigma discount code.

I got the scoop on her favorite throwback brands, latest trends, and ride-or-die beauty products with the One Sentence Wonder interview. Plus, read to the end to find out about our Sephora giveaway with Sana!
