Hello loves! Today’s tutorial is on this arabic inspired eye makeup 🙂 I love am OBSESSED with this look and if you like go to a bit bold with your makeup, I think you can totally rock this at a festival, prom, party or even wedding 🙂 Enjoy xo
If you’d like to see what I did, then please keep on reading this post or watch the YouTube video below! 🙂
Sooo let’s see.. I started by using a very soft baby pink eyeshadow as a transition color. When I started working on this look I wasn’t exactly sure what eyeshadows was I going to use or what colors, but a soft pink works perfectly for blending eyeshadows together (or a very soft brown, if you aren’t feeling the pink).
In pretty much all of the arabic inspired looks I’ve seen so far the colors usually stand out, so I chose a brighter pink eyeshadow and applied that in my crease. You can build up on the intensity and get it as pigmented as you wish – that’s what I did!
Then I took a soft purple eyeshadow and applied that on the outer half of my lid. I wanted to go from light and soft to bit darker and brighter, so that the blending would be easier and also in order to get a nice gradient effect.
Therefore the eyeshadow I applied next was a darker purple. A bit too dark almost, so I buffed it in really well with the other eyeshadows I had on my eyes – don’t take this too far in your crease or towards the center of your lid though! Take your time and blend slowly 🙂
I forgot to mention… all of the colors I used on my eyes I also applied on the bottom last line, as you can see in the picture above :D.
For the inner half of my eyes I was feeling gold and bit sparkly… luckily I had the exact shade I was looking for in my 88 eyeshadow palette 😀 So I popped that on my lid and blended it into the purple a little bit, then also applied it on the inner third of my lower lash line and inner corner.
Go back and blend all of these colors together a little bit, as things may be getting a little bit crazy in your crease… no worries though – just move your brush back and forth and that should do the trick ;).
Now for the part that I was quite scared of… lining the eyes ( I’ve tried going for this kind of look before, but for some reason I never got the liner right, lol). I applied a very black eyeliner in my tight and waterline and then I took my liquid eyeliner… ermm, let me see how can I explain this. I started by extending my inner corner.. you know, draw a line as if I would want to create a wing. Then I lined my bottom lash line and drew another line on the outer part – the actual wing :D. Then I just lined the rest of my eye as I normally would, making sure to keep the liner rather thin, as I wanted the colors to still show when I open my eyes.
Then I applied mascara, 1 coat on the top and 2 on the bottom, as I feel like this look wouldn’t be complete without dramatic lower lash lines too. Speaking of incomplete and dramatic lashes, I certainly felt like this look calls for falsies, so I just added my favorite ones :).
Lastly… lips. I applied my Provocalips in 700 Skinny Dipping, as I wanted them to be nude, but I wasn’t feeling the matte look, so I popped a little bit of lip gloss on top – the lip gloss has a sliiiight pink undertone, so it finished the look perfectly!
And that’s it! As I said, I am obsessed with how it came out!! What do you think? 🙂
