Makeup Tips for Eid
Eid is a special time for family and friends to get together to socialise and celebrate, so it is important you look and feel your best. It is exciting choosing the perfect outfit, shoes and jewellery but also the makeup! Here are some of our makeup tips for Eid:-
Moisturise your skin to create a perfect base for the application of your foundation. This will help lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated all day. Choose a long wear foundation which matches your skin colour. Apply the foundation using a buffing brush for flawless coverage, ensure you take the foundation down towards your jaw line and neck to avoid harsh lines. Use a concealer after applying foundationto cover any blemishes. You can also use a lighter foundation under the eyes to brighten and open the area. For that extra definition, check out our highlighting and contour tips here. To finish off the face apply bronzer and blusher to give you that perfect glow!
Top Tip: Apply a highlighter on the high points of your face to give you that healthy glow.
Bold Bright Eyes
Keeping the face simple and flawless leaves more room and time for those gorgeous eyes! Bright colours and bold eye liners are perfect for this occasion. Our main tips for eyes include fierce winged eyeliner, smokey eye shadow and fabulous long lashes! We love the combination of gold and teal for that dramatic eye look (see left). Also ensure you curl your lashes before applying mascara, this will hold the curl in place for longer!
Top Tip: Apply a shimmery champagne shade in the inner corners of your eye to brighten and open your eyes.
For the lips there are two main options, bold or neutral. For a bold statement we suggest matte pinks, reds and gorgeous dark maroons. For a neutral look we recommend natural pinks & nudes with gloss on top! Whichever colour you go for, always ensure you scrub and moisturise your lips before, this will allow easy application and ensure the colour doesn’t cling to dry patches!
Top Tip: Softly apply a lighter shade in the centre of lips to create that illusion of bigger lips!
