Eid look 2016

1. Turban/hijab 

Hey guys as you know from my previous turban post, I’m crazy about them. I was going to do something a little more special but I was busy with baking and babysitting, so I opted for something more simple. 

I decided to go for a purple this year as I rarely wear colour on Eid. 

The plain purple scarf is a gift from my dad from Kenya 

The one with butterflies on it is from the Oriental plaza in Johannesburg 

I was super busy yesterday so I decided to do the easiest turban I know. 

Step 1 

Tie the scarf on your head { I look so tired šŸ‘€ } 

Step 2 
Bring the two ends over to the front and twist them around. 

Step 3 

Tie and tuck at the back. 

Here’s the final look. 

2. Make up look 

What I used: 

Of course the first step is my matte prep spray from Mac 

Next I use the AJ CrimsonAJ Crimson BB + D cream in number 5 and apply this on the areas that need a little more coverage, this is available at Clicks 

Next I use the Garnier BB cream in dark/foncĆ©,  I apply this all over my face and blend it in with the AJ cream with my fingers. 

Next I set the foundation with my translucent powder by Mac

Then I moved on to my eyes. I used the smokeluxe palette by Mac, I’m using the light/peachy colour on my whole eyelid and the bronze/brown in the crease. I used the AB2 brush by Bobbi Brown for this, I used the narrower side for the whole lid and the flared part for the crease. 

Then for my winged eyeliner I used the Black tied velvet by Mac for my liner and the Fine eye liner brush by Bobbi Brown for the liner. 

Then I curled my lashes with my lash curler from Clicks and used the Mac Exteded Play Lash mascara in endlessly black , I find that this mascara makes my lashes appear extra long and fuller { my tip for achieving the false eyelashe look is coating my lashes in baby powder with a little brush } . 

3. Eyebrows 

For my brows I used the Bobbi Brown brow kit followed by the Clarins brow pencil in number 2 intense brown because I’m never satisfied with brows when I use the brow kit alone. 

4. My Abaya 

I chose to weaken of my abayas that I got at the Christmas market in Cape Town. I got a salmon one and a space grey one. I chose to wear the grey one as it goes with my purple scarf. ( I didn’t take a complete outfit photo yesterday so here’s a throwback to when I last wore it. ) 

I hope I gave some of you some inspiration for your next fancy/ outing/ wedding look. Please be sure to follow my on Instagram for more updates ( tagged in sidebar. xox Suraya
