Neutral Arabic Wedding Makeup

The look we're going to be doing is.....Neutral Arabic Wedding Makeup. 

I got asked by so many people to do a wedding makeup look.So...i decided to create an arabic version of wedding makeup but, thats more neutral because i know most arabic wedding makeup is so bright and too over the top. This look is sophisticated and even if you're not getting married you can still follow along and do it :) The Jewelry is from T's Jewelry

Start with the royal care cosmetics black gel liner and create a cat eye wing on just the outer part of your eye. Next smudge it right away by using a smudge brush from the coastal scents 22 piece set. Draw the eyeliner all the way under your lashes as well but don't create the inner point just yet. We'll do that at the end. Place the black eyeshadow from the coastal scents 88 original palette over the smudged gel liner to set it.Take the color chocolate from the my beauty weapon from motives cosmetics and apply that on the crease and on about 40% of your lid. Make sure everything is blended well including the gel liner. Next, take the color gold in the my beauty weapon from motives cosmetics and wet your brush a bit then apply it on your lid and blend all the harsh lines  with the rest of the eye shadows. Afterwards, take the concealer from the coastal scents camouflage palette and apply it right under your brow bone. Then, with color ivory from the my beauty weapon from motives cosmetics put it over it in order to set it.. Now you will need to create the inner point eyeliner and over your top lashes as well. Don't forget to apply it on your water line. Define it with the royal care cosmetics black gel liner. Top the look off with a coat of mascara from motives cosmetics and apply the #111 lashes from motives cosmetics. You're done!

Red Dramatic Eyeliner Arabic Makeup

 The Look we're going to be doing is.....Red Dramatic Eyeliner Arabic Makeup

I went for this extremely sexy eyeliner look with the unexpected red. Red definitely is not a color used much in makeup but, this one was definitely worked.

First start with your base, which is going to be the loreal gel liner on your crease then connect to the tip of your eye. That is next to the edge of your lash. It should be some what of a triangle. Smudge it thoroughly using the smudge brush from the coastal scents 22 piece set. Take a bigger blending brush and blend any harsh lines. Add more if you want to intensify it.

                                                     Next take the red in the sleek sunset palette and apply it on about 65% of your lid. Blend out and harsh lines again. Moving forward, take the dark black in the sleek caribbean palette and place it over your gel liner base. Make sure it's really dark in the outer part as you see in the picture. Go back to the sunset palette and pick up the buttery gold color which is next to the light blue.Apply that on the inner part of your eye as a highlight.

Now lets to use my favorite palette, my beauty weapon from motives cosmetics. I used the color chocolate to tone down the black and it helped with smoother blending. I used ivory as a highlight for right under my brow bone.

To finish off the look, i drew my eyeliner above my lashes and had to find a easy way to draw the one below because it's very difficult. What i would recommend is that you're able to start from the middle of your eye and draw the inner point. Then go to the outer part and do the opposite of a upper wing. For example, when you create a wing, you pull your brush upwards but, when you do this eyeliner, you have to pull it down a bit. Not too much pressure on the brush but, just enough to soften it on the outer part.If you make any mistakes just use your concealer to clean it up a bit. I lined my waterline with the gel liner as well. Last but not least, i took the light cream color from the sunset palette and i put it between the lines that i had drawn. It just defines the line a lot better and brings out the contrast between the colors.

Put on your coat of mascara and i used the motives cosmetics #110 which are my personal favorites. I used motives cosmetics lash adhesive to apply it.

If you still have any harsh lines and wanna smoothen it out a bit, i used the royal care cosmetics 120 fourth edition to finish it off. 

Buy it here: Fourth Edition 120 palette 

For my eyebrows, i used whitening lightening brow bar to fill my eyebrows. You can get a 70% off using the promo code fatmah.  Buy it here: Brow Bar To Go

I mixed Naked and Luxe from the my beauty weapon palette on my lips. I dampt on some blush from motives cosmetics called empress to warm up my cheeks.

Some Glitter In Your Life

The look we'll be doing to is.....Some glitter in your life!

What would my life be without glitter? I don't know,hahaha. This look is all about color and glitter!

I used the rccosmetics pink gel liner as a base. It's super pigmented and creamy. I put it on my entire lid and blended it up to about the crease. I also placed it under my lower lashes, all the way in. Moving forward, Pick up the pink and place it over the pink gel liner to set it. Next i took the loreal black gel liner and i smudge it under the lashes, on the bottom lashes that is. I brought the gel liner up and smudged it there as well. I took a small blending brush and i swayed the gel liner outward of my eye. Make sure you pull it all the way out to give the affect that your eye is longer. I did this because i'm using a dark color and as we all know dark colors will make your eyes smaller.When you sway it outward it lengthens your eye, making it appear bigger. Next i took the black in the coastal scents 88 original palette and just placed a little bit over the outer part of the eye to darken the gel liner that i had blended. 

                                                                                         Blend it very well into the gel liner base. Once you're done with that take the gold in the wet n wild quad, "i'm getting sunburned" and apply that on the inner part of the eye as a highlight.

Now take your gel liner again and apply your eyeliner, this time making the point of the inner part. 

Buy "Diamond" glitter here: Diamond

Next you will take your glue adhesive and apply it on an application brush. Dip it into the glitter quickly and apply it right under the eyeliner inner point that you had just done. Spread it around because it will dry quickly and also because you can't blend glitter.  To top it off i applied a coast of mascara on both the top and bottom lashes. Lastly, i used JLB cosmetics faux false eyelashes to had a bit of funk. I highlighted under my brow with the coastal scents camouflage palette then placed the ivory color from the motives "my beaty weapon" palette.  

Finished look on both eyes open and closed.

Envy green with gold glitter Arabic makeup

I love the color green but it's definitely not my favorite color. With that being said, don't be discourage if you have the same problem. In terms of eye makeup though, it's one of my favorites.

The look we're going to be doing....Envy green with gold glitter Arabic makeup

I put together a pictorial for you guys! My first pictorial actually. You'll learn the step by step process.

First start off by applying a base. In this case i used the loreal gel liner as my base for the darker color. I need to create dimension even though it's a very dark smokey look.Next i took a concealer from the coastal scents camouflage palette and placed that on the area where i didn't apply the base gel liner. Through out this process you will need to blend a lot so make sure you have good blending and smudging brushes. 

Buy the "late night" quad here: Late night quad 
Next Take the "late night" quad from motives cosmetics and apply the envy green color over the black base. I really love this color. The pigmentation is very nice as well so it doesn't fade. Blend it very well and make it as intense as you would like. 

Buy the glitter "pot of gold" here: Pot of gold
Moving forward, you'll apply the glitter "a pot of gold" from motives cosmetics. Apply some lash adhesive to the area where you put the concealer. Afterwards, just wet your brush with a little water, and pick up some of the glitter.Shake off the extra glitter. Next apply some gel liner on your water line and right under it. Smoke it out like crazy as i showed in the picture in step 5. Apply another layer of gel liner again on there but, this time don't smoke it out as much and make sure to keep it towards the top so that it's more intense there. Lastly, apply your eyeliner, mascara, and lashes. I used the motives cosmetics 110 lashes. These lovely lashes do add a statement to the look and it really brings it together.

Dramatic Light Blue Arabic Cut Crease

The look we'll be doing....dramatic light blue arabic cut cease 

Since 2 months ago i took a long break from doing makeup and i decided to finally start a makeup blog to give people a much better understanding. I'll be posting looks daily and i hope you all get inspired by my work. Let me know if you guys have any questions or you can request me to do a certain look.

So, let's start off my blog with this look i did yesterday. A soft light blue with black and a hint of a deep orange (it came off as pink on camera but, it's actually burnt orange color). To start off, you'll need the loreal gel liner.

To begin this look you'll first start off with the most unlikely product. The main reason why i did this is because i want to create structure and dimension. The darker color in contrast to the light blue will bring out the shape which in a way is like architecture. You're going to dark a black line all the way out using a slanted brush. Next grab a small smudging brush and smudge it quickly before the gel liner dries. If it dries it won't smudge smoothly and you'll have harsh lines. Once you shape it out, you're going to pull it all the way down under your waterline, where your bottom lashes are, and smudge it there as well. You'll also extend it closer to the nose area, outward. 

88 palette from coastal scents. A must have for any makeup fanatic!

Once that base is put on, you will start with the color 1 that i labeled and apply on about 60% of your lid space. The outer half will be covered with number 4, and 3. 3 looks lighter in the picture due to the lighting but it's actually much darker off camera. You'll apply both 3 and 4 on the outer part. You will extend color number 4 on top of the black base to darken it. Further more, you'll use number 5 and 6 to smokey out the top part of the base and give it a tint of brown so that you can apply color 8 as a highlight right under your brow. To the look off, you'll put color number 2 to highlight the inner tear duct and put color number 9 on the bottom of your eye to add a bold color. Now we'll move on to lining with a very thin liner and extending the liner all the way out. You need to make it as dramatic as possible in order to really keep going with the architecture. Lastly apply the gel liner on your waterline. You can use any liner that you have for this.

Color number 3 is from the secret fantasies palette by motives cosmetics. I love all the colors in this palette. Two darker color and 2 neutrals, one which i did use for this look. This palette is an essential i would say because you can pretty much carry it in your purse everyday. Just use the neutrals at daytime and the darker ones at night.

Color number 5,6,and 8 are from the "my beauty weapon" palette from motives cosmetics.

When i was opening up this palette i was literally the happiest person on earth. I truly love the earth tones and the shimmery colors. I used the color C as my highlight by the way.

color number 2 is from the wet and wild "i'm getting sunburned" quad

 Top it off with a coat of mascara and lashes from motives cosmetics.I used these lashes. I love them so much! It looks very natural but it's good for this look because it tones it down without taking away from it. I applied it using the motives cosmetics lash adhesive. It's a clear glue which helps a lot because you won't need to apply liner over it. Only problem that i found was it's a bit shiny when it dries.

For the lips i went with brilliant from motives cosmetics. This lipstick is just perfect for someone who wants color but nothing to overpowering. This is important especially when you place all the attention on the eyes, the lips are kept in the background. I love the warm pinkish, creamy color. It truly suites my lips perfectly.

Now for the foundation i switched to this foundation just recently.  for 14 bucks it's not that bad really. It's very smooth, and the application is quite simple. One thing i disliked about it though is that there is a little grayish undertone to it. I found that quite unpleasant. Thankfully my motives cosmetics powder came to the rescue!
Buy motives powder in golden medium here: Golden medium

I applied using my fav face brushes from Royal care cosmetics.
These brushes make the application quite simple.

I used the flat top brush for foundation and the slanted brush for contouring. The bigger dome brush was used for blush and the smaller one was to blend out the harsh lines.  

 Speaking of blush, love! love! love! this blush from motives cosmetics called runway.  It's a deep peach with a brunt tint which gives your checks some warmth. The warmth you'll need just to set your face on fire, haha just kidding but, really one of my new favorite blushes for sure.

Moving on,  let's get to highlighting and contouring. I used the second concealer on the first row as my highlight (starting from the left side) I then decided to experiment and see what would happen if i contoured with a concealer; something i've never done before. So used the darkest concealer in the palette and missed accomplished.

Just the perfect highlight and contouring for this look. That tint of warm peach is truly beautiful and stands out on camera.

Go over the concealer with this powder, bronzer, and contouring palette from motives cosmetics. It gives your face definition so that each area really pops out. For example if you highlight an area, this powder will set it, and if you contour it'll bring it out and darken it. This is another essential piece from motives cosmetics because you can take it anywhere and put it anywhere. You can use it for light contouring or for a more dramatic contouring, which ever works best for you.

contour, bronze, and highlight.

Now for my favorite after the eyes...the brows!! Whitening lighting really did well with this brow bar to go. Love it! It's so convenient because you can easily carry it around. It has a darker powder which i used for the arche, and then a light color for the inner part of the eyebrow. I use the lighter color because you should never take the darkest color and place it in the inner part of your brow. It's way too harsh and very unappealing. Lastly i used the wax to tame my bushy eyebrow hairs. I also want to admit i put a concealer over my brow to make it even lighter because whenever you do a super dramatic look  or just in general if you have very dark eyebrows never ever put black eyeshadow on it. I always lighten mine so that it doesn't overpower the eye makeup. Just a fine tip ;)
