Arabic Inspired -- EOTD

 
 




 


 

Hey gals! I hope you're enjoying your day!
 
 
I was fiddling around with my makeup today and this is what I came up with... kind of a wearable, smokey, Arabic inspired look. I think it would look best with false lashes, but that does not happen on a daily basis in my world.
 
 

Hope you like it! Have you tried any Arabic inspired looks?

Soft and Modern Cut Crease -- EOTD

It's super gloomy outside today and since I haven't done an eye of the day in a looooong time I thought, why not?! This is my take on a soft cut crease with warm browns. This would also look nice with winged eyeliner, but I wasn't in the mood.

MAC Soft Brown -- transition
MAC Saddle -- crease
MAC Vanilla -- highlight
MAC Texture -- lower lash line fade into cut crease
MAC Smolder Eye Kohl -- top water line

NEUTRAL LOOK WITH NAKED2 PALETTE!


 
HELLO LADIES!! It's been a couple days since I did a post, so I decided to do an Eye of the Day!

I did a VERY neutral look using mostly the Naked2 Palette by Urban Decay with a couple MAC shadows thrown in the mix. I love the Naked2 but it is definitely missing some key elements... like a transition shade!!! Anywho, this look is meant to be a little more effortless, so don't worry about doing exact placement.

Unfortunately I could not get a picture that did this look justice... Partly because my camera isn't up to par, and secondly because shadows with this much shimmer can be difficult to capture. Soon I will be getting a new camera and will be filming videos on YouTube, so keep an eye out for that!!! I hope you like the look and here's the items that I used:

MAC Kid -- transition
UD Verve -- inner third of lid
UD Suspect -- outer 2/3 of lid
UD Snakebit -- outer v and crease, lower lashline
MAC Wedge- blend lower lashline
MAC Vanilla -- highlight

MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
MAC Espresso -- Eyebrows
MAC Omega -- Eyebrows
MAC Fling Eyebrow Pencil
Maybelline Brow Pencil in Blonde
Lorac Brow Pencil in Brunette
Clinique Cream Liner in True Black
MAC Smolder Eye Kohl
Salon Perfect Lashes #110
Revlon Lash Adhesive
Voluminous Mascara

BRUSHES:
MAC 217 (2)
MAC 224
MAC 210
MAC 266
Brow Grooming Brush
Tweezerman Tweezers


By the way my dears, it is not necessary to use 5 brow products like I did, but I am growing them out so they are requiring A LOT more attention these days :)

HAVE A GREAT DAY, AND DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE!!!!

MAC: EASY PURPLE DAYTIME LOOK

Sugar Plum Inspired Daytime Look






Without Liquid Liner






 With Liquid Liner
 
This is an easy and wearable purple eye, that is appropriate for work or school. The key to making most looks daytime appropriate is using a light hand and making sure to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND!! My favorite brush to use is the MAC 217. If you don't have the 217 just use any dome shaped blending brush. A less expensive brush version is the Sonia Kashuk blending brush, which can be found at any target.
 
Shadows used:

MAC Satin Taupe (metallic purpley taupe): Inner two-thirds of lid to crease

MAC Nocturnelle (dark purple with shimmer): Outer third of lid to crease, and line bottom lashes

MAC Kid (matte light brown -- two shades darker than yor skintone): Blend crease and transition

MAC Vanilla (matte off white): Highlight

MAC Vex (multi-color shimmer): Inner corner

MAC Carbon (matte black): Line top lashes




You don't have to purchase these shadows necessarily... Just use something you have that is similar in color and finish.


In the first picture I used a matte black eyeshadow (Carbon) on a small angled brush (MAC 208) to line my eye and create a small wing... You can stop there for a more natural look, or you can use the shadow as a guideline when creating your winged eyeliner using liquid or gel liner. I like to put on one light coat of mascara before using liquid or gel liner because it keeps my lashes out of the way.

I hope this was helpful and I will be experimenting with different lighting to take the best pictures possible for future looks.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
