IMG_0456This has been a highly requested video for some time, and I’m glad to finally share it with you! Arab or Middle Eastern makeup is among the most beautiful makeup styles in the world; it’s dramatic, striking, and beautiful. My version, though quite dramatic, is still a more subdued version of a true Arab-inspired makeup look. But all the necessary components are there: A pop of color, exaggerated liner, and smoky, smoky, smoky!!

The key to a look like this is, of course, blending. I used a series of neutral shades as a base, beginning with the lightest and working up to the darkest, and that makes blending much easier as opposed to going straight to a dark shade. It’s easy to be intimidated by a look like this at first sight, but if you follow along step-by-step you’ll find it’s not so bad!




NOTE: I realize ‘Arabic’ makeup isn’t necessarily the correct wording, but it’s how everyone searches for this type of makeup look. So please understand I know Arabic is a language, not a style! Thank you.

    Wow this is absolutely gorgeous! I noticed your eyebrows look lighter here, do you dye them? My eyebrows are really dark and I’ve tried to use face bleach but they tend to make them look orange 🙁 I love your eyebrows and I’m just wondering if you had any tips or tricks on how to get lighter looking brows.
