Get the look; Eid Al-Adha

Hi lovelies,

A few days ago it was Eid Al-Adha! Eid is a celebration day for Muslims all around the world where we spend time with our loved ones, exchange gifts and eat lots of yummy food ❤ I was so exhausted on the day, I just wanted to curl up and sleep BUT I knew I had to use all my energy and dress up on this special occasion ❤

I wore this stunning abaya which I purchased from Saudi Arabia when I went for Hajj last year. With the baby blue colour and multi coloured embroidery/beads, it reminded me of Barbie for some strange reason! The funny thing is that I even got told that I look like a Muslim Barbie doll! ( couldn’t decide if that was a compliment or a wee hint I was wearing too much makeup!)

Makeup:

Keeping with the Barbie theme, I opted for colourful eyes, flirtatious lashes and a nude pinkey lip.

Eyes:

  1. After priming blend burnt orange into crease
  2. Pat on the blue eyeshadow in the centre of lids
  3. In the inner corner/first half of lids apply gold eyeshadow
  4. To deepen the crease blend light purple eyeshadow in the socket
  5. Define outer V with dark purple and dark brown
  6. Apply black eyeliner and pop on your favourite lashes

Face:

  • Chanel foundation and Estee Lauder foundation mixed together
  • LA Girl Cosmetics…Creamy Beige for concealer and Beautiful Bronze  to contour
  • Baby pink blush from BH Cosmetics blush palette
  • Sleek Makeup Face Contour kit to set cream contour and highlight
  • Collection loose powder to set under eyes and T Zone

For lips I used Sleek lip cream in Birthday Suit. You can use any similar products in your makeup collection, totally not necessary to use the same products to achieve the same look! Have fun with bold colours! I know it can be a bit intimidating to use so many different colours but no harm in turning into Barbie once in a while eh ;o)
