Arabic Bride - Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Hope you're all having a great week. I was asked to do another arabic look, so here it is! I took inspiration from arabic bridal visuals, below are a few of my favourites that I came accross. Let's get started!

I began by priming my lid with urban Decay PP in Sin all over the lid and I filled my brows in with Stila eyeshadow in Nanda Devi.

For this look I mainly used this quad from Bed Head (Easy Going) and using the pale gold, I applied this to my inner corner, inner half of the lid and under the brow.

From the same quad, I took the browny-pink colour and placed this on the outer half of my lid. I also took the gold and pink under the lower lashes (gold in the inner half, pink in the outer).

Next, using this gorgeous purple colour Dazzledust from Barry M (34) on a tapered crease brush, I applied this in a V shape like so. I built up the colour and shape until I was happy with it.

Next, on an angled brush and a little bit of Captain of the Black Pearl from Catrice, I smoked this under the lower lashes, on te top lashes and marked out where I want the wing of my liner to go. I also used this to deepen up the crease colour.

Gel Liner time! I placed mine on the lower and upper waterline, in the inner corner in a point and winged ou on top. The thing to remember is to keep the liner really thin on the inner half of the lid and thicken it out dramatically in the outer corner.

Lashings of mascara and you're done! I used IsaDora Vibralash Mascara. Fake lashes woud be lovely with this also, I didnt want to put mines on becauseIm going into town shortly, and well, its Wednesday afternoon.

Hope you like this, if you have any sugestions for looks for me to do, I'd much appreciate it, as Im often stuck for ideas :) Much Love xxx
