Women on-the-go need beauty buys that can keep up, so MOJEH has compiled a Ramadan edit of essentials that will have you feeling fresh in a flash

The sudden lifestyle change that comes with Ramadan in tandem with rising temperatures means staying on top of your self-care routine should be a priority, whether that entails keeping your skin happy (and hydrated), taming flyaways or adding a pop of colour to your cheeks for a midday pick-me-up. When bouncing between day-to-day errands, events and the office, keeping a do-it-all kit at the ready is essential. Here, MOJEH rounds-up the on-the-go beauty buys to keep on-hand this Ramadan and beyond.

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist

When a beauty brand has the stamp of approval by an actual Queen, you know it must be good. That is the case with Omorovicza, which infuses a 14th-century beauty recipe created by Queen Elizabeth of Hungary in this lightweight mist, alongside the country’s healing thermal waters to balance, reinvigorate and protect the complexion.

Huda Beauty Faux Filler Lip Gloss

Ramadan is the perfect time of year to offer overwhelmed complexions some respite from daily makeup wear, however, even when going bare-faced, a swipe of lip gloss ensures a put-together look. Huda Beauty’s first-ever lip gloss is a high-shine formula infused with lip-loving Vitamin E and vegan collagen that plumps fine lines for a filler effect. Available in six sheer shades and a clear topper, wear alone or over your favourite lip colour to add oomph in an instant. Shop now
