How to apply makeup for Eid 2014

A beautiful and elegant tutorial on how to apply makeup for Eid 2014

Eid al-Adha is one of the two most important celebrations in the Muslim calender. It is a holiday at the end of Hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, which is one of the greatest religious observance in Islam. People go to the mosque for prayers in their new clothes to thank Allah for the blessings they have received, and exchange the greeting “Eid Mubarak” meaning “blessed Eid”. Here is a wearable makeup look to celebrate the festival of Eid.Eid makeup 25

Eid makeup 24Step 1: I began the Eid makeup by applying MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation in NC37 all over the face with a Real Techniques Buffing brush. I spread the foundation in circular motions to help spread evenly.Eid makeup 2 Eid makeup 1Step 2: My skin was feeling extremely dry today hence I dint use any powder anywhere on the face. So I moved on to contour my chubby cheeks with Benefit’s Hoola. I used the Real Techniques Setting brush to blend out any lines.

Eid makeup 7Step 5: It’s time to move on to the eyes now. I used MAC Smolder to line the waterline with kajal.Eid makeup 8Step 6: To add some zing to the look, I used MAC Stars & Rockets just below the waterline with a Sigma E30 pencil brush.

Eid makeup 9Step 7: As an eye primer I used the B&D primer and spread it on the entire eyelid with the Sigma F70 brush. For the eye shadow I applied Chanel Impulsion cream shadow with the same brush.

Eid makeup 12 Eid makeup 13Step 9: I wanted the liner to be slightly smudged and smokey. So instead of using a gel liner, I applied the MAC Smolder pencil and smudged it with an angled brush. I created a slight wing at the outer corner of both the eyes.

Eid makeup 14 Eid makeup 15Step 10: The eye makeup is almost done now! The second last step is to curl lashes (Inglot lash curler) and add mascara (Maybelline The Falsies). I did not over do the mascara as I was going to apply false lashes.

Eid makeup 16 Eid makeup 17 Eid makeup 18Step 11: I stuck on MAC #7 lashes with the help of Duo Adhesive. I feel these lashes are best for a bride-to-be as they don’t look very simple nor do they look overly dramatic.

Eid makeup 19Step 12: Finally to coat my lips I used the lipstick Mehr by MAC. I love how the lipstick turned out to be the exact same shade of the dress! I chose to leave the lips matte but if you find it too dry, feel free to dab some gloss on the lips.
