This week I thought I would do an Eid make-up look. The month of Ramadan has been challenging but truly rewarding for me and I am so happy to celebrate Eid after a whole month of fasting. What better way to celebrate than to dress up, exchange presents and eat lots of lovely food with family and friends!
To create this look I used some of my purchases from my recent IMATS trip, which you can read about here. I was wearing canary yellow so decided to go for my Ingot lipstick in '412' as this was the perfect berry shade to pop against the yellow. I also used the NYX photo-loving primer and the consistency is so silky and smooth. It definitely does what it says on the tin, as when you look at the pictures they literally look airbrushed and radiant. I used my Beauty Blender for the first time when creating this look and it lives up to the hype. You simply dampen the sponge and stipple away and your complexion is left looking flawless. Definitely worth the money! I also used the aptly named Ben Nye 'Banana powder' to lift under the eyes and highlight and it seems like the perfect colour for my skin tone so will be using it again.

I then applied my new Benefit 'Goof Proof' brow pencil in '5' to the eyebrows. Such a great product and so easy to use, by the way. I love that it has a spoolie on the other end - so convenient! Now onto the eyes: I used the Sleek Matte V2 palette to create the look on the eyes. I applied the shade 'flesh' all over the lid. I then blended 'paperbag' (brown) through the crease and finally, with a pointed crease brush, used 'thunder' (grey) to deepen the colour through the crease. To create the highlight on the inner corner of the eye I used Barry M dazzle dust in 'Aphrodite' (gold). I've said this before, but a look is never complete without false lashes! So of course I used my fave Nouveau Lashes in Natural/Style2. I have spoken about how fab these lashes are in previous posts which you can read about here. For blush I used Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 'Golden Sun' and finished off the lips using my Ingot lipstick in '412'.

I hope you like the look. I think yellow is such a hard colour to do make-up for. But it's always good to do a contrasting colour on the lip. I've seen a lot of red lips with yellow but thought I would go for a berry instead and it paid off. I hope you like it. Leave your comments below to let me know what you think!
