Purple and Grey Arabic Inspired Eye Make Up Tutorial

I happen to just love the Arabic style of make-up! Bold colors, strong liner, bright lip..just lots of make up. Admittedly, my tutorial  does not do justice to the look, but in all fairness, I was trying my new camera and still do not have the lighting perfect yet. I think one of the reasons I like this look is because there is so much make-up, the colors are so rich and vivid and even though the eyes have so much going on, the lip is still very bold. And I don't know about y'all, but I am SO over the nude lip trend!! Bring back the bright, bold, and daring lips!

Here is a list of the products I used:

  e.l.f. Flawless finish foundation in buff mixed with e.l.f. tinted moisturizer in nude

  Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 001 transparent

  Rimmel Natural Bronzer (matte) in 022 Sun Bronze

  Wet'n'Wild Color Icon blush in 832E Heather Silk

  Jillian Dempsey for AVON black liner pencil
  Wet'n'Wild ColorIcon pencil in purple/plum
