FOTD- Arabic Inspired Dramatic Makeup ♡

Hello Ladies! 

I thought I'd try and do an FOTD/FOTN inspired by Arabian makeup. I find it so glamorous and feminine and really wanted to test it out as it is one of my absolute favourite looks. 

I've always LOVED the Arab culture.. from their food, music and dancing right through to their makeup and fashion. It may have something to do with living abroad in an Arab country for a while in my childhood. I can't say it was a negative influence at all though!

I kept my face very neutral so that my eyes stood out from the rest of my face. I used a selection of matte and shimmery bronzers to create a dewy bronzed complexion. I also opted for nude lips and kept them quite matte so that my face didn't look over-the-top and greasy.

I don't know how well the look has come out as my makeup skills are self-taught so I'm not the best when it comes to creating such wild eye-looks haha. I'm personally not too keen on the double-wing I created as it's rather scruffy and not very precise. I don't think the rest is too bad though.. aside from the fact I may have taken my eyeshadow a little too high up! I hope you enjoy the look anyway ^_^
