EVENT: The Make-up Maki Launch

The Make-up Maki Product Shot

On Thursday, November 21, we organized an event to launch The Make-up Maki, a collaboration between Maki and The Make-up Manual. The Make-up Maki is the latest addition to Maki’s extensive menu. Maki approached Mai Almoayed, Bahrain’s very own make-up guru who is also a make-up artist. She founded The Make-up Manual and hosts professional classes to educate women about make-up and skincare. Maki approached Mai to design her own maki.

The Make-up Maki is an explosion of flavors for one’s taste buds, with ingredients that create a harmony of decadent taste. The Make-up Maki incorporates tempura prawn, avocado, rice pearl, wasabi flakes, drizzled extra virgin olive oil, topped with chopped tempura, cherry tomato, cucumber, carrots, thakwan, spring onion, and lastly, a drizzle of mango and strawberry sauce.

The concept of the maki is to portray the beauty of make-up and colorful palettes, with a surprising twist of flavorful ingredients. In addition, the vibrant maki reflects Almoayed’s lively and fun personality, which is essential in namesake dishes.

Visit Maki at World Trade Center to try The Make-up Maki – which is not only visually beautiful, but will excite your taste buds!

Below are images of the dinner where The Make-up Maki was carefully selected, the kitchen rolling of the maki, and the private event:
