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 ❤

Outfit:

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)

Get the look; Mehndi Raat Face

Hi lovelies!

A few days ago my uncles fiancée had her Mehndi/Henna party which is sort of like a hens party for us Muslim ladies ;o) I will be sharing with you all the look I created on that day. I was inspired by the Pakistani dress I wore, the beautiful gold detailing with hints on turquoise.

Base

  1. After my skin care routine I smoothed out my skin using Porefessional primer by Benefit
  2. I used a stippling brush to apply my Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation
  3. I corrected my dark circles using an orange concealer from LA Girl Cosmetics and then used my Maybelline Fit Me concealer to hide the orange tones
  4. After ‘baking’ with Collection Translucent powder I proceeded to powder contouring and highlighting using my Face Contour Kit by Sleek in medium

Eyes: I used my BH Cosmetics 120 palette to create the dramatic eye makeup.

  1. I blended a brown matte eye shadow in the crease
  2. In the inner corner I applied a mix of a yellow and gold eye shadow
  3. In the centre I first applied the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Turquoise Forever and mixed a blue and green eye shadow to pack on top
  4. I deepened the outer V with black eye shadow and blended it into the brown shadow
  5. I lined my eyes with NYC eye liner
  6. I tight lined my upper and lower lash line with NYC black eye pencil
  7. After popping on Huda Beauty lashes in ‘Giselle’ eyes were all complete!

#rukiaswedding2015- OOTD’s & Makeup Looks

Hello lovelies!

Last Friday a family friend had her henna ceremony party/event followed by her wedding on Tuesday the 7th of April! A BIG congratulations to Rukia and Adil ❤

I thought I will share with you all my makeup and outfit details from both wedding events! For those of you who may not already know I come from a Bangladeshi background hence making me a Scottish Asian! I love dressing up in Asian clothes whenever I get that chance just because I LOVE wearing fancy clothes and also….who doesn’t love dressing up and taking pictures? ;o)

For the mehendi ( henna) ceremony I opted for this beautiful royal blue and yellow kaftan which I actually bought from Saudi Arabia! I literally felt like an Arab princess….LOL! A very similar makeup look I wore on the night is already up on my blog. Check it out here https://obsessionmuch.wordpress.com/2015/01/13/blue-gold-makeup-look/. I paired this dress with a royal navy headscarf which I bought from http://www.pearl-daisy.com.

Cousin of the bride! Also a fellow blogging buddy! https://shakirarahman.wordpress.com/

I loved doing this makeup look again! The lashes I wore with this look is by Eyelure in No 121.

Roll on the wedding :oD

I wore this gorgeous long dress bought from the store Rang in London. This definitely made me feel like a princess! The colour combination of red and gold is my absolute favourite! As the dress was very bold I toned down my makeup.

I blended in Sienna in my crease and patted in Glisten on my lids.  Both these eye shadows are from the Maya Mia Palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills. I put half a lash on the outer corners of my eyes and concealed the lash band with black eyeliner.  As the eyes were simple I paired it with deep red lips.

For my accessories I wore this lovely daisy hand chain I bought from New Look a while ago. The beautiful gold headscarf is from Pearl Daisy and to glam up my headscarf a tiny bit I wore this daisy chain on top, again from Pearl Daisy. How cute is the white rose?! The gold bag I used was borrowed from my aunt.

Overall I had so much fun on both nights. My 2 outfits including the makeup were different from each other which I am glad about. The first event my makeup was dramatic whereas on the second night it was more on the simple side with just a pop of red!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post ❤
