Asian inspired fashion and makeup look



Hi everyone!

I recently attended a friend's pre-wedding party, which came just at the right time as it gave me an excuse to wear a new outfit and doll myself up. Who needs an excuse, right?! My blog post covers where I got my fab new outfit from, as well as the beauty look I put together.

I am a British Pakistani and usually, when invited to Asian wedding events, I tend to wear traditional clothing. Pakistani fashion is always changing so it is really hard to keep up with the trends. Luckily, living in Birmingham we have so many fantastic shops to choose from.








Since I have been little, my mum has always shopped at a store called Aziz Textiles. They sell loose fabric in all types of styles and this store has always been our first stop when looking for material for a new outfit. When they contacted me to collaborate, I was naturally over the moon, as I was already a customer. The quality of the fabric never fails to disappoint and there is such a variety to choose from. They don't just have material for Asian suits, but material for anything and everything. My mum is quite the seamstress and has made me dresses and skirts using their fabric! Their prices are also very reasonable, especially when compared to ready-made suits, with the cost of the material sent to me (pictured) only being £25. The outfit was perfect for the pre-wedding party with just the right amount of embellishments and not too OTT.



As for the makeup, for the eyes, I decided to go 'matchy, matchy' with the outfit. That's the great thing about Asian fashion, the bold colour allow you to go bright with the makeup. I applied Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Eternal Gold (£4.99) all over the lid and then blended through the crease with Barry M Dazzle Dust in Mint (£4.59). Then I applied Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra eyeshadow in Tisse Riviera (Cream colour) up to the brow and in the inner corner of the eye. Finally, in the middle of the eye lid I put a dab of Mac Pigment in Old Gold (£16) to give the look a pop. I then applied gel liner and false eyelashes.








I really enjoyed creating this look and the outfit was perfect for the party! I hope you like it. Aziz Textiles are also offering a 15% discount, using code Ali&Her15. So grab a bargain while you can!
