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 πŸ™ I love your eyebrows and I’m just wondering if you had any tips or tricks on how to get lighter looking brows.
