my first take on arabic inspired makeup

Arabic Makeup is mostly a combination of bright colors with heavily-lined eye....

This is my first time doing an arabic makeup...lining my eye is the most difficult thing for me because i can never quite get it right... I always ended up smearing it because i tend to blink whenever i do it...i guess it because it tickles...but then im up for the challenge!

When Sharlene announced her contest, i knew right there & then that i will join it even if i haven't tried making it yet...

Now tell me what you think...

It's a pink to purple gradient look...

I don't have a black scarf..only this colorful one... XD

Emphasis on the eyes that's why i have neutral lips...

Now a little tutorial on how i achieved the look...

These are what i used...
  • UDPP
  • 88 palette
  • Skin Food Cactus Bb cream
  • mineral blush
  • fashion 21 brow duo
  • Maybelline Lash Stylist
  • ELF liquid liner
  • Lancome pencil concealer
  • NYX lip gloss in neutral
  • Avon shadowstick in vibrant blue
  • Ever bilena eyeliner in black
  • face & eye brushes
Now let's start with the mini tutorial...i labeled the colors that i used on the palette..i numbered it as 1, 2, 3, 4...i forgot the highlight..but the highlight color is the top color on the left side...

After prepping your eyes with primer & shadesticks..then line the 4 colors on your so

then blend colors 1 & 2...& also 3 & what i did...

blend the 2 colors now so that there would be a nice soft & gradient color on your lids...

don't forget to also bring the colors down...just do what you did at the top eye.... ^_~
& the highlight too!

As for lining it...i lined the top lash line & also the bottom lash if you take a closer look

you will see that i have 2 'wings' at the top & the other is below...then i just finished it with rhinestones....

& for the first time in my life....i love my lashes...I don't even have to use falsies....can you see my lashes?!

my short asian lashes was given life all because of Maybelline Lash Stylist...i love that will be up after a couple of days...

Lesson learned:
Lining the eyes takes practice & steady hands...If you are having a hard time using liquid liners, you can line your eyes first using a pencil liner....then if you are satisfied with it, then you can top it off with the liquid liner

Anyways...freestyle shots....
It's always nice to finish everything with a nice fun pic

For those who wanted to join her contest, these are the details:

Create an Arabic Style Inspired Makeup. From what I noticed, when I google 'Arabic Style Makeup', They usually have flawless, porcelain-like skin, and really bright colors on the eyes yet it still looks smokey because of the heavy eyeliner on both the lashline and lower lashline.
