Arabic Inspired Makeup Look

Heyhey :)

It's Monday which means this weeks first video!... Not sure if ye have noticed or not but I have been keeping to a new schedule for the past few weeks of uploading on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6pm (GMT). This has made life a lot easier in terms of managing Youtube and internet work, as well as freeing up a little free time for myself. But just because I am uploading 3 times a week on the channel doesn't mean that's all ye will see here on the blog, I will still be posting blogposts outside of (and as well as) that schedule. Anyhu, back to this tutorial.

Today's look is inspired by Arabic beauty with warm golds, bronzes and oranges, reminiscent of spices from the Middle East.
I did try to make it individual and add some extra interest to the look playing with shadow and light. Hope ye enjoy the tutorial!

  3. I LOVE this! Which exact shades were used on the lid? I did read the description but can't find which exact two eye shadows were used on the lid. Thanks! X

    1. They don't have names, just from the Essence palette I listed above! xx

  4. Thanks, I bought the palette, but which two shades did you use in the palette? Top row, bottom row, or where in the palette. I know it has six shades, wanted to know the exact two you used. XX Christy

    1. On the top lid in the middle I used the top centre gold first and patter the top left highlight over the middle. x
