Professional makeup tips to rock your look this Eid.
Whether you spend your Eid visiting relatives or being the hostess, we all agree it can be a hectic day. Thus, we’ve teamed up with professional makeup artist Rasha Al Madhayan and photographer Ekleel Al Faris to give you one less thing to worry about this year. Al Madhayan shares her tips and tricks on how you can make your makeup last all day to allow you to instantly transform your look from daytime appropriate to full-on nighttime glam with just a few add-ons.
Make sure to use sun protection, preferably an oil-free sunscreen so it won’t allow your makeup to slide off later on during the day.
For a dewy and long-lasting look, apply Stila’s All Day foundation and concealer. To set the concealer, go with yellow-toned setting powder to brighten up the under eye area.
For a long-lasting contour, apply a cream contour and then a powder contour on top to set it all in place.
Skip the eyeliner and apply black eye shadow instead for a soft daytime look.
Transform your look for night by adding a fun pop of color to the lips.
For a dramatic sultry eye look, add a maroon color to your matte bronzy daytime shadow, with a bit of shimmer at the center of the lid (Colorpop Stereo 2). Add a jet black long-lasting gel liner to top it all off (Inglot no.77 gel liner).
To start off this matte look, spritz on a bit of Skindinavia’s oil control primer spray. This will control the shine and allow your makeup to last throughout the day.
Achieve a luminous matte finish to the skin by applying Dolce and Gabbanna’s full coverage foundation with a beauty blender.
Change up your look by swapping the pink lipstick for a red one instead (pro tip: go for a red lipstick with blue undertones, as it will make your teeth appear whiter).
Apply winged eyeliner and smudge it out for an instant glam cat eye.
