Femme Fabulous - Fahmida Nabi

Fahmida Nabi, the elder daughter of Mahmudun Nabi, followed the footsteps of her father and started her career in music in 1979. In her career spanning over three decades, she has sung many songs and become an icon for the newcomers in the industry. She primarily sings classical and modern Bengali songs but also dabbles in Rabindra Sangeet and Nazrul Geeti.


Fahimida Nabi is old school when it comes to taking care of her skin and hair and thus, prefers natural alternatives to the chemical based products. After a day of shooting, she comes back home and removes all her makeup using coconut oil. Once all the makeup has been removed, she likes to keep her skin bare most of the time as it gives her skin the chance to breathe a little. However, sometimes when her skin feels a little too dry, she applies Chloe Perfumed Body Lotion. She also likes to use the Victoria's Secret Tease Fragrance Lotion at times.


Fahmida Nabi is very meticulous when it comes to her hair and thus, makes sure to apply coconut oil everyday to her hair. She washes her hair with the Sunsilk Black Shine shampoo and conditioner everyday to keep her hair clean and free from dirt and pollution. She believes washing the hair everyday is very important due to extreme levels of air pollution in Dhaka which causes a lot of damage to our hair if not properly cleaned.


Fahmida Nabi likes makeup that is very quick and easy to apply. Since she has to commute through a lot of traffic almost regularly, she has become very skilled at doing her own makeup in cars or vanity rooms while shooting. She usually always carries her own makeup with her and applies it whenever needed. For her base, she likes to use the Sleek Makeup Oil Free Cream to Powder foundation. On top of that, she applies a little bit of blush from Mac or Anastasia Beverly Hills. When it comes to eye makeup, her favorites are the palettes from the Urban Decay Naked Range. Finally she completes her look with Mac lipstick.

Regular Wear

For her everyday attire, she likes to wear long shirts or kurtis with pants and completes the look with a pair of khussas.

Party Wear

For parties, she usually prefers sarees. She is a big fan of local desi sarees and absolutely loves muslin. She likes to accessorise the look with pearl earrings and a few finger rings. And she completes the look with a pair of stilettos.
