Simple Smokey Eye with Bold Purple Lips feat. Urban Decay Naked Palette and MAC Heroine

IMG_8786

Hey Dolls!

I felt like wearing purple lips and the perfect purple lipstick is the oh so famous MAC Heroine. I came up with this look to complement the purple. It’s simple and pretty cool toned and all the eyeshadows I used are from the UD Naked Palette with the exception of a bronzer on my crease.

1. After priming my lid, I mixed UD Buck and Benefit Hoola bronzer and applied it on my crease and outer crease with a fluffy brush.

2. Then with a denser crease brush, I applied UD Hustle on my crease and outer corner. I used a windshield wiper motion and took the eyeshadow all the way to the inner corner of the crease.

3. Then on a wet brush, I used UD Sidecar on my lid.

4.Then I applied UD Creep to darken the outer corner and crease. Make sure you blend blend!

5. I applied a nude eyeliner on my waterline and added a little bit of Hustle and Creep on the bottom lash line. I applied UD Virgin on my tear duct area and brow bone.

6. I lined my eyes with Inglot gel liner in # 77 and made a thick line with a wing. Applied mascara on the top and bottom lashesh and then falsies : Red Cherry # 47

Dramatic Berry Gold Smokey Eye for a Desi Bridal Party

Heya My Lovelies!

Today’s post is all about a super dramatic smokey eye with berry tones and a beautiful duo chrome pigment from Inglot that shows up gold in one angle and a pink bronze at a different angle. My uber gorgeous model is my beautiful bestie who was kind enough to lend me her face for the day 😛 ! I’m super happy with how the look came out and this look is perfect for a ‘desi’ bridal party or even for the bride herself! I don’t have a pictorial or step by step for this post but I’ll list all the product details and a diagram of the eye.

Adriana Lima Met Gala 2015 Inspired Vampy Look

IMG_7144

Helllooo My Lovelies!

I know it’s a bit late but as promised here I am with a Adriana Lima Inspired Look from the Met Gala this year. I’ve been sick and then I was in Melbourne and I’m still feeling a bit under the weather but things need to be done! I really enjoyed doing this look and even tried to do a faux bang but failed miserably LOL !

Oh she’s so stunning I can’t even! Obviously our shapes are different. You can barely see her eyelids from the photos but I looked through as many photos I could and got a general idea.

Just a side note: My only regret is I think the highlight looks a bit too silvery/greyish…It wasn’t like that face to face and when I was doing the makeup but maybe I’ll choose a different shade for the highlight if I had to do it again.

~Start off with a grey base all over the lid – Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe

~Go all over the lid with a grey color – Lorac Stone

~Take that grey to the crease and blend – I added Lorac Lilac with Lorac Stone

~ Then apply a light/white matte shade to the brow bone just to keep in check that you are not taking the grey too high up – Lorac Vanilla

~Add a smokey grey tone with a satin or shimmery finish on the lid – I mixed MAC Satin Taupe and Makeup Geek Moonstone

~Don’t forget to blend everything together at the crease with clean brush or with a little bit of the crease color

~Now comes the fun part with the black eyeshadow – firstly with kohl pencil make a wing starting halfway the lash line

~With a smudger brush, start smudging that wing liner until it has a blurred effect

~Then with a crease brush (MAC 217/ Zoeva 227/ Sigma E25) take some black eyeshadow – Makeup Geek Corrupt – make sure you dust it off so that there is no excess product – and start going over that lining blending upward towards the outer crease and outer edge – go slowly and take as little product as possible at a time and build the black

~ Blend it with the lid and crease colors – you can go and add more of the greys if it helps you to blend

~Go with the black kohl pencil on the bottom lash line (NOT THE WATERLINE) and line halfway – leave a space on the inner third part

~With a pencil brush and black eyeshadow, smudge that liner and smoke it out

~Smoke it out farther down with a grey eyeshadow and a crease brush so there are no harsh lines

~On the inner corner, go with a shimmery champagne/pearl highlight – take it upward to the inner lid and on the inner third of the lower lash line

~Apply a little bit of that shimmery highlight shade on the brow bone as well

~Apply a nude or white eyeliner on the water line

~Curl your lashes, apply mascara on top and bottom and lashes and apply falsier! I used Social Eyes Vamp Lashes but to be honest I should’ve gone with the style Delight instead 😦

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!

IMG_1668

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!

IMG_1291

 

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.

Amber Goddess – Warm Copper and Gold Smokey Eye (EID 2014)

IMG_9897

IMG_9899

 

Hi my bunnies!

The reason I decided to name this look ‘Amber Goddess’ is because of the two BEAUTIFUL eyeshadows I used — the stunners of the show – MAC Amber Lights and MakeupGeek Goddess! I’ve been wearing these colors constantly for the last couple of weeks, just changing up the intensity here and there. I also think it’s perfect for the upcoming EID celebrations…most people love to dress up during EID and I think these shades would compliment many different eye colors and outfits! Everybody loves glitz and glam during EID and nothing screams out glamourous more than GOLD!

*PLEASE EXCUSE THOSE UNKEMPT EYEBROWS! I really need to do something about those! Just too lazy ! 😛

 

IMG_9900

 

EYES

~Start off with MakeupGeek Chickadee and Creme Brule on the crease taking it upward just below the browbone and across to the upper inner corner.

~So the same windshield wiper motion with MakeupGeek Country Girl all across but this time closer to the crease…take the shadow downwards to both the inner and outer corner

~Add MakeupGeek Goddess to both the inner and outer corners layering it over Country Girl (don’t completely cover it – Country Girl will be peeking through slightly)

~Add MAC Amber Lights to the center of the lid…spritz the brush with Fix + or any other mist or water  before applying the shadow to intensify the color

~With a more precise blending brush, take MakeupGeek Mocha and Corrupt and lighty start dabbing and blending in the outer corner taking it slightly up to the crease…don’t take too much in one go…layer it slowly until you get your desired intensity – Remember less is more!

~Add MAC Ricepaper to the browbone as a highlight

~Line your eyes with a gel liner and make a slight wing

~Quickly before the liner sets, take a pencil brush with a little bit of corrupt on it and start layering it over the liner, pushing it upwards as you go and smudging it

~ Tightline the upper lashline

~For the water line, I only added a black eye pencil on the inner and outer bit leaving the middle empty

~In the middle waterline add a gold eye pencil or Amber Lights eyeshadow

~On the bottom lashline do the same thing with a black eyeshadow on the outer and inner corner and MAC Amberlights in the middle

~Blend everything with a blending brush!

~Add Mascara on top and bottom lashesh and Falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

WHEW that was a lot to explain! Hopefully I can start doing videos soon so its easier to understand! Fingers Crossed!

Aishwarya Rai amfAR Cannes Gala 2014 Inspired makeup

ashamfarcollage

Hello my lovely bunnies!

Aishwarya Rai looked absolutely gorgeous at the Cannes Film Festival 2014 and even though the most popular look was her in the stunning Roberto Cavalli gown with a neutral shimmery eye and bold corally red lips, I could not stop staring at her photos from the amfAR Gala. She was wearing a sexy Armani Prive gown and rocked a beautiful teal eye and bold corally red lips again! You rarely see celebrities going all out with bold colors both on their eyes and lips and coming out looking so fabulous! Unfortunately I couldn’t find the exact shade of teal in my makeup collection but we gotta do with what we have. The color looks a bit more bluer in the photos than it actually is in real life.

ashamfar copy

EYES:

~So I started of using MakeUp Geek Creme Brule on my crease.

~Then I mixed Mac Steamy and Urban Decay Flipsyde and popped on my lid

~To warm up the crease a little bit more I used a bronzer  with a fluffy brush (Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder No 3)

~To define the crease a bit more I added MUG Cocoa Bear on the crease with a denser crease brush

~I added MAC Ricepaper on the tear duct going upwards

~On my bottom lashline, I added Chi Chi Baked Eyeshadow Crazy in Love which is a deep warm shimmery brown

~Just on the middle of the lashline I added a more golden bronze shade Sephora’s Sunday Brunch eyeshadow

~I lined my upper lashline with a liquid eyeliner and made a very tiny flick, nothing too dramatic

~I tight lined with a black eye pencil and also lined my waterline

~Added some mascara on both top and bottom lashes

~And then popped on some falsies – Miss Adoro Demi Wispies
