Hello Everyone, i’m really sorry for being away so long, because you know i was busy with all the gatherings and stuff like that! but last Thursday (January 15th) it was my cousin’s engagement party, and it was so beautiful, cute, unpretentious as possible, but to be honest, it wasn’t the best time of my life, i didn’t have that much fun.
anyways, in this post i will be showing you my hair inspo for this day, my make up look, and my outfit.
now, my main inspiration was Alessandra Ambrosio in the Instant Replay before the VS fashion show thing video, or whatever. and my hair was much messier than the picture, so yeah!
now for make up i used a lot of stuff but it’s okay, because it’s a special occasion!
the main thing i was going for my make up look is: Long Lasting, Gold and olive color pallette, Sparkling eyes, and glowing skin.
Disclaimer: not all the eye shadow palettes are mine, some of them are my mom’s.
Starting with the face (actually i started with my eyes because i had fall outs), but the first thing is Priming using bareMinerals Prime Time (Original) Foundation Primer and then using my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation to mix it with Benefit Sun Beam Liquid Highlighter . for concealing, starting with Garnier Eye Roll-on letting set a little bit before blending it, and then applying my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit using the concealer side for (obviously concealing) and setting it with Pale Yellow Powder that comes in the kit.
for cheeks, starting with a cream bronzer using the Chanel Bronze Universel “Bronzing Makeup Base” and for a color on the cheeks i used Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in 6 Powder Pink (it’s a neutral peachy pink color, because i have color on my eyes and lips).
For face finishing products, starting with Face Powder i used theBalm® Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder and to give my face warmth and dimension i used The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 4 Deep Matte, and finishing my face off with some highlighting using theBalm® Mary-Lou Manizer.
For Brows, i used Benefit Brow Zings in Dark and setting it with a brow gel, using Benefit Gimme Brow .
for eyes, starting off with the base, using Too Faced Shadow Insurance for priming, and then to set it and make blending much easier, i used Foxy for the Naked2 palette all over the eyes from lid to brow bone, then as a transition shade in the crease i use Inglot Eyeshadow in 337.
now, for the star of the show, Tom Ford Sahara Haze eye shadow quad, it is absolutely gorgeous olive undertone color palette.
Starting with the color 2 (satin-y slightly shimmery light grey color) in the crease applying in a smaller area than the transition color (Inglot 337). then applying the color 1 (Shimmery slightly Lemon-y color) on the eyelid and the inner corner. Using the color 3 (Dark Khaki with sparkles in it “darkest color in the palette”) on the outer corner. And Finally using the color 4 (Multi-shades of olive and gold sparkles) on the center of the lid.
Moving on to the lower lash line, starting from the outer corner of the lower lash line with MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow in Gilt by Association, and on the inner corner of the lower lash line used Half Baked from Naked2, for final shimmering coat of sparkle used Dior 5 Couleurs Designer in 708 Amber Design, using the sparkle-y color that labeled as “Shine”.
i drew a winged liner on my top lash line with Maybelline Gel Eye liner in Brown and for my waterline i used Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer in the color In The Nude.
for the eye lashes, i started by coating my lashes with Maybelline Volume Express Falsie Black Drama Mascara, and for fake lashes i used the Huda Beauty Lashes in #1 Giselle.
Finally for lips, i wanted a matte long lasting neutral pink color, matte: because of the glowing skin, and sparkle and shimmer around the eyes, Long Lasting: personally, it’s imperative to any occasion, and neutral pink: neutral, because my eyes had a bit of color in them, Pink, i didn’t wanna go for a nude because it would make the look a bit boring in my humble opinion, but i totally love nude lipstick, but not for this outfit. Using Prestige Waterproof Lip liner in 45 Orchid and finishing my look off with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan .
That was it for the make up moving on to the outfit.
here’s a set that i made just to show you the color scheme of the outfit, the main colors for my outfit are: Off-white/cream, White Gold/Gold, and Olive Green. now this is a very similar dress to what i wore, but my neckline is V shaped and the shoulder strings are thicker.
Green Nail Polish from Inglot 983 and the Gold Accent Nail Polish from Prestige 32 Caramel
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: A gift from a friend.
Hand Chain: Claire’s
Cream and Gold Bracelets: Aldo
Pearls & Gold Chain Bracelets: my sister made it for me.
Watch: Armani Exchange (my sister’s, because i don’t own a gold watch)
that was it for today’s post, i really hope you liked it, thank you so much for reading this post and i’ll see really soon.
Love, Shahad ..
