Midweek Makeovers: Pink Soft Smokey Asian Engagement/Nikkah Make Up Look

Wednesday 22 June 2016

One of my close blogger friends who you may have already seen guest post on my blog (Naheeda), recently got engaged (Islamic Nikkah), and she very matter of factly told me I would be doing her makeup even though I've been dying to do it anyway!
She has gorgeous features to work with and even though we had no trial she told me what she wanted on the day (a soft smokey look) and I came up with this to also match her outfit.

As it was an Islamic Ceremony, it's supposed to be a bit more toned down than a regular Asian Bridal make over, so I tried to keep it glam enough to feel like a bride but subtle enough to stay in tune with the ceremony.

Products used:
• Urban Decay Primer Potion - Original
• Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Chocolate
 Kiko Must Have Eye Evolution palette (limited edition)
 Urban Decay - Naked Original Palette (to blend and intensify crease)
 Urban Decay - Midnight Cowboy Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner
• Inglot AMC gel liner - 77
• Huda Beauty lashes - Giselle
• Make Up Forever HD Foundation - 153 + 173
MAC Prolongwear concealer - NC35
• Motives - Shape & Sculpt Duo (Contour shade only)
• MAC Mineralize Skinf
inish - Soft & Gentle
• NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Milan

We managed to record mini clips on our Snapchat on the day so I've put it together on my Instagram for you to see; the quality is obviously not as good as it would be on my camera but I hope to upload more makeovers on my YouTube channel soon, so please subscribe and let me know what you'd like to see!

You can find Naheeda on her blog and YouTube channel, go show her some love.

Do let me know what you'd like to see more of and I will try my best to get it done <3
