How To: Arabian Make Up

4:45 am









This post has been a very special collaboration with two of my trusted makeup gurus, one who has been a resident beauty adviser at Haute Culture and an old friend, Sahar Khatija (Ezina) and my very dear cousin sister, Ayesha Khan who is now a professional makeup artist in the Middle East.

During a short trip to Bangalore which all three of us were eagerly awaiting, we decided to do a one of a kind collaboration. Both these artistes painted my face to resemble an Arabian beauty- with bold eyes, extra shimmery cheeks et all. And the result? Something I didn't ever imagine, but instantly loved!

So how did we go about this?
The base, contouring and highlighting was done by Sahar, while Ayesha had done my eyes & lips and added finishing touches.
