Hello my makeup obsessed lovelies. This look is all about copper metallics! Perfect for a sexy night out, especially for fall and winter. Being girls of course we love glitter and sparkle so why not use it to glam up our eyes! Make sure you use a dark brown or black cream base to make the copper pigment or glitter stand out more. Check out the tutorial below to recreate this look. All the products I used are listed as well. MUAH!

Green eye makeup is so beautiful and exotic! In this tutorial I show you two ways to wear this look, one more subtle and the other much brighter! Both are great, just depends on what you're in the mood for. The key to pulling off a successful green smokey eye look is in the BLENDING! Otherwise it could end up looking VERY VERY SCARY, especially if you've added a cut crease. YIKES! Check out the cute drawing I made especially for this video. I LOVE IT! Enjoy the tutorial guys and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

My Arabesque Beauty OBSESSION probably started after watching Princess Jasmine in Aladdin. As a child I looked more like... well remember Tula in My Big Fat Greek Wedding as a kid? Her name may as well have been Binny. Like Tula, I envied the pretty blondes and brunettes in my school at the time, not realizing that one day my thick raven hair, tan skin, full lips and bushy eyebrows could possibly be considered...dare I say it? Pretty?!!? As for the unibrow and mustache hair, I give thanks to the Ancient Egyptian for the invention of waxing! LOL! 

Whenever I want to really change my look, stand out of the crowd and be creative, I go for this style of makeup! My flesh and blood idol??? The one and only, HAIFA WEHBE! If you don't know who she is, look her up! No one can top her beauty in my eyes, not even Princess Jasmine. Sorry girl!

You don't have to go all crazy with the look, it can be done with neutral colors as well. The dramatic eyeliner alone can take you from woman to Goddess. There's a big misconception that this type of makeup won't suit women with very fair skin or lighter hair, which I completely DISAGREE with. I have seen this style of makeup on women of all different skin and hair colors, light and dark, and to me they ALL look absolutely GORGEOUS! Just remember to balance the heavy eyes with barely there lips and cheeks!

So hope you guys like this makeup look. I had so much fun doing it and promise you more Arabic inspired makeup tutorials in the future. 

Lots of love, xo!
