Today I'll be showing you how I did my make up on Eid which was yesterday. It marks the end of Ramadan and if you have any questions I have a FAQs post here.
Funnily enough other than a bright lip I was going for a minimal look - yes you can see a big assortment of products here. I can't believe it took so much to achieve minimal. Le sigh. Just a heads up I didn't use the YSL lip stain as I couldn't muster up the courage so I replaced it with another bright red (MAC russian red) toned down with a dark liner underneath.
So, this is the look I achieved, with a quick peek at my outfit - which I also kept minimal as I wanted to wear statement red lips which I wouldn't have done had I worn a bold outfit too. I went for the classic black and red combo.
For the outfit I just wore a black, batwing style pleated 'abaya' (islamic clothing) with diamond embellishments and a black hijab.
As you can see I kept my eye make up very minimal - a mix of a skin toned MAC paint pot in Nubile and Rice paper all over the lid and in the inner corner to brighten. I then just used the Maybelline gel liner to define my eyes and put on mascara. No intricate eye look this time.
On my pics cheeks I used a teeny bit of Daniel Sandler water blush but as I didn't want too much colour on my face with the red lips, you can barely see it.
Lastly, as mentioned above, the statement red lip. Funnily enough, I had to share that I have only ever worn red lips (out of the house) twice in my life but my blog seems to paint a whole other picture.
I lastly wanted to show you how well the Maybelline liner held up and how bad the paint pot lasted. I accept it was a huuuuugely hot and stick day yesterday but I have found whenever using the paint pot my shadow creases, despite using primer underneath.
So that was my Eid look. For those celebrating, hope you had a fantastic Eid and a fruitful Ramadan. May we continue the good deeds we've acquired throughout the year. For those not celebrating, hope you had a fab weekend basking in the sun!
Till next time...Toodles! :)
