MY LEBANESE NIGHTS #OOTN AND ARABIC INSPIRED MAKE UP

My Arabic inspired make up

Hello beautiful ladies, here I am going to share with you my outfit of the night and Arabic inspired make up for my stay in Beirut, Lebanon.

BASE:
  • L'Oreal Lumi Magique (True Match Lumi) foundation in DW3 Gold Linen, applied with my Real Techniques stippling brush
  • Mac Pro Longwear concealer in NC30
  • Clinique Line Smoothing concealer in 02 Light
  • Dior Skinflash in 001
EYES - Warning: on my eyes I'm wearing more than most of us wear in the average semester, but women in Lebanon are SO stunning, it takes a lot of work to keep up with them!! ^_^
  • Mac Extra Dimension Bronzer in Delphic, from their recent Alluring Aquatic collection, in my crease and under the lower lashline
  • La Rose de Versailles eyeliner from Creer Beaute, from Japan, the most thin and precise eyeliner I have, to elongate both my inner and outer corner
  • Kiko Skinny Fit Kajal in 06 (black) only on the outer third of my waterline
  • Kiko False Lashes Concentrate Building Base mascara
  • Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black mascara on top lashes for more volume and length
  • L'Oreal Lash Architect 4D mascara on bottom lashes for more definition
  • fake eyelashes from Tokyo - sorry I can't remember the name of the brand - and Spring Heart black lash glue, also from Tokyo. I bought both products at popular Matsumoto KiYoshi convenience store
EYEBROWS:
  • Mac Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set in Emphatically Blonde, from their new line of brow products for the summer
CHEEKS:
  • Mac Extra Dimension Bronzer in Delphic
  • Mac Rio Mineralize Skinfinish* for blush
  • Mac Pro Sculpting Cream in Coffee Walnut, very delicately applied with a Mac 217 brush, to bring the cheekbone contouring past Kardashian level more into Maleficent territory
LIPS:
  • Flormar Waterproof Lipliner no. 201
  • Mac Myth lipstick, one of their most iconic shades, which I finally got after seeing how beautiful it looks on super sweet and mega talented Sanna (@lookamillion) in her most divine make up looks

My Lebanese Nights OOTN

 In my OOTN I am wearing:
  • bustier top from Galliano
  • skirt from Zara
  • silver cuff bracelet and silver and golden rings from H&M
I completed my outfit with simple black strappy heels and a black clutch bag.

My make up was the same as the morning after which I showed you above, but for it to be more intense for the night I was also wearing
  • Mac Indianwood paintpot, a metallic orangy bronze, as a base
  • the darker shade of Kiko Color Sphere eyeshadow in 203, a grape purple shade, in my crease and outer corner
  • Nars Albatross highlighter on top of my cheekbones and down my nose
  • OPI Lincoln Park After Dark nail polish, a blackened purple
Girls I hope you enjoyed my post :-)

    1. I first tried Myth 2 years ago when it was re-promoted as part of a 3-piece set, together with its limited edition lipgloss and nail polish, but at the time I found it gave me a concealer effect which was not a good look :(

      Now I'm so happy I gave it another try because I realized I can correct that colour issue by using a slightly darker lipliner to give it more dimension, and go from Corpse Bride to Sultry Bombshell like the other girls I've seen wear it haha ^_^

      I want to wear it soon again, I hope you will like it if you try it!!

      And the trick for the eye make up was the thinness of the eyeliner brush and the dramatic lashes ;-)

      Thank you so much for everything and much love <3 <3
