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!
