Rihanna of Arabia Harper’s Bazaar Cover Inspired Makeup

Hey Hey My Lovelies!

I’ve been a a fan of Rihanna’s fashion and makeup for a while now! She never ceases to amaze me and this one’s no exception! I was blown away by each and every photo of her, featured in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. I just had to recreate the makeup she wore!

EYES

IMG_1671

The eyes are a super dramatic winged eyeshadow….you need to be a bit patient with it but you can always go back and clean up 🙂

~After priming my lids with MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH Amrezy) Caramel on my crease

~Then I applied ABH Vanilla on my brow bone and tear duct

~Then I used the L’oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim (the best felt tip liner I have ever used: highly recommended) to start making a wing

~Following the shape of the crease, I outlined the crease curving it inward

~Then I outlined the triangle on my tear duct and then bringing the line upward I connected it with the crease line

~After perfecting the outline, I used a black gel liner to fill in the rest of the space inside the outline

~Then to make the wing crisp, I used a concealer and cleaned up the edges

~I used a Makeup Geek Corrupt (intense black) eyeshadow to set the gel liner on the lid and make it even blacker

~In the photo, Rihanna seems to have a navy grey tint on the lid..it could be just the lighting but I just thought it looked really nice so I added MAC Deep Truth on the lid

~Then I added ABH Morocco on the lower lash line and blended it out

~Then I liner the bottom lash line and water line with black liner

~Then I curled my lashes, and applied mascara to my top and bottom lashes

~Then I added falses lashes : KOKO Ariel

Fall Glam Smokey Eye featuring Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette

IMG_1422

Hey Hey My Bunnies,

I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette couple weeks back and I’ve finally gotten around to play and do a proper look with it…if you don’t already know, Amrezy is an amazing makeup artist and she’s big on instagram and I am a massive fan! The colors in this palette could not be more perfect! They are right up my ally! My two favorite shades are caramel and morocco! There are some great shades for fall so I thought I’ll do a fall smokey eye as the season’s approaching in the northern hemisphere.

P.S. If you follow my instagram you’d know I’ve been obsessing over these reflection apps! Will probably have photos like these in every post I make now ^_^

EYES:

IMG_1434

~After priming my eyelids, I applied Caramel (warm yellow brown matte) on the crease and outer crease with a fluffy blending brush

~Then I applied Morocco (reddish brown matte) on my crease with a narrow crease brush (MAC 217) and packed most of the color on the outer portion of the eye and then swiped across towards the inner crease blending it back and forth; I also took it down slightly to the outer lid

~Then I patted Glisten on the lid keeping a small area bare right in the middle

~Then I took Legend on a wet lid brush and placed it in the middle bare area

~Make sure to go back and forth to blend Glisten and Legend together so that there are no harsh lines

~Then with a crease brush I applied Deep Plum on the outer corner of the lid blending it with Morocco and the lid colors

~I took Deep Plum slightly up and inwards to the crease

~Then with a clean blending brush (or you can slightly dab it into Morocco), I blended the crease so that there are no harsh edges

~I applied Vanilla to the brow bone and Legend on the tear duct area

~Made a fairly thin line on my upper lash line with a black gel liner but did not make a wing

~Curled my lashes, applied mascara and then falsies

~On the bottom I diffused Caramel first with a fluffy brush, then with a pencil brush I applied Morocco on top and then I lined my water line with a deep purple eye pencil from Australis called Grape Cake

~Then with a pencil brush, I took some deep plum and smudged it along the bottom lash line

HOPE THAT MADE SENSE! LOL

LIPS: 

Option 1: Nyx Deep Purple lipliner and MAC Heaux lipstick LE (MAC Rebel can be another option from the permanent line)

Option 2: MAC Runway Hit lipstick with Nyx Creme Brule Butter Gloss

**So I threw in an option with a lighter shade of lipstick. With a more muted lipstick I think this look can be worn in any time of the year! There are no set rules in makeup so do what your heart desires!!

Haifa Wehbe Inspired Arabic Makeup

Inspiration Photo:

I’ve been wanting to do a Haifa Wehbe Inspired look for ages now. So when I bought this new headpiece from Lovisa with a blue droplet couple days back, I immediately thought of this photo of Haifa. For those of you who don’t know, Haifa Wehbe is a Lebanese singer and actress. She’s a glamour icon in the Arab World. All of her looks are gorgeous, but this particular one is so unique and goes really well with the headpiece!

IMG_1278

The blue purple gradient is sooo beautiful! I added my own touch to it by changing the black eyeliner in the waterline to a royal blue one! I think the eyes pop even more with that and creates a beautiful gradient from blue to teal to purple!

EYES

~After priming my lids, I applied a gold cream eyeshadow as a base on the lid (Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Apparence)

~On top of that cream eyeshadow, I applied Urban Decay Half Baked from the Naked palette on the lid up to the crease and also brought it all the way to my tear duct

~I blended out the edges with Urban Decay Buck (Naked Palette) with a fluffy crease brush and applied the color to the crease and outer crease, stopping just below the brow bone.

~I then applied Urban Decay Smog (Naked Palette) on the outer corner with a MAC 217 brush dragging it upwards towards the crease and dragging it outwards making a elongated v shape

~I applied MAC Ricepaper on the browbone as a highlight

~I lined my upper lashline with a gel liner and made a thick cat eye

~On the bottom lash line, I first applied Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple and on top of that I applied Iridescent Purple from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette

~I then took the Models Prefer Eyeliner in Teal Maybe and applied it just below the waterline, making sure that the teal does not completely hide the purple – the purple must peak through

~I applied Urban Decay Flipside to set the eyeliner and make the color more vibrant

~Then I lined the waterline with Model’s Prefer Eyeliner in Blue Lagoon. I have a mini review on these liner here

~Lastly I curled my lashes, put mascara on both top and bottom lashes and then added some falsies for more drama. I used the KOKO lashes in Ariel.

Kylie Jenner Inspired Modern 90’s makeup look

Inspiration Picture:

Browny nude lips was an iconic trend of the 1990’s and Kylie Jenner seem to have brought back this trend! Everyone’s going crazy for it and I have to admit I am one of those people!

The standout factor of this look are the lips so everything else is pretty neutral and basic except for the lashes which just adds that extra ‘va va voom’ factor!

** ALL THE EYESHADOWS AND FACE PRODUCTS I USED ARE MATTE …this is an all matte look

 

IMG_0968

The eyes are super basic…I tried to use avery neutral color palette unlike my usual warm shades.

~I primed my lid with Mac Painterly Paint Pot

~Then I mixed Mac Soft Brown and Wedge and dusted slightly over the lid and then put a wash on the outer crease as a transition shade

~I used Lorac Espresso to slightly deepen out the crease and outer corner…this is a very pigment dark neutral brown shade so you have to use a very light hand while using it because we want a subtle contour of the crease not too dramatic

~I used Lorac White on the brow bone and inner corner.

~Then I made a very thin line on the lash line and a slight wing

~Added mascara to my lashed and some dramatic falsies…I used the KoKo lashes in Risque

~I rimmed my waterline with a black eye pencil

~Slightly smoked the bottom lashline with soft brown and added mascara to the bottom lashes

BEN NYE Banana Powder to set and brighten the underye

LIPS:

now for the best part!

~I used AUSTRALIS Stay Put Lipliner in RAISIN to line my lips, fill them in and slightly over draw them so that they look fuller

~You can just use the lip liner and it still creates the perfect shade but I had to use my favorite lipstick MAC Velvet Teddy on top and I’ve heard that Kylie Jenner actually uses the same lipstick
