4 Makeup Looks for Eid

Friday, 23 June 2017

Eid is in three days. 

It is our festive season. When we feel the end of our fast and beginning of our celebration. Everyone rushing to buy their dresses, or hang their decorations. It is as exciting as it is exhausting.

Eid is one of the best times to experiment with makeup. I can slather on as much powder and shadow as I want, and no one bats an eye. Everyone wants to look their best during Eid. So I came up with four makeup looks for the festive season!

Here are some Eid-ready looks!


I always find myself reaching for darker shades as Eid continues. I'm usually out at night at a family friend's party full of Pepsi and karaoke. A dark brown smokey eye is perfect for those nights out. This one in particular is easy. 

For the eyes, I only used two colours from the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I blended Coco into my crease as my transition shade then applied Dubai on my entire lid. NYX Gel Liner in Black helped create a smudged winged liner. As a final touch, I applied House of Lashes' Iconic Falsies.

As for lips, I'm using Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Flirt, a cool tone brown that completed this look.


Get pretty in pink!

In conjunction with my Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette review, I made a Full Glam video featuring my favourite products. I used a mixture of Sandalwood, Henna and Bossy in the crease and Fling on the lids. Then I took Black Truffle on the outer corner, and a hint of Angelic and Moondust as my inner corner highlight.

No glam look is complete without thick liquid liner, made with NYX Matte Liquid Liner and my favourite Huda Beauty Lashes in Samantha. A nude lip like Huda Beauty Liquid Lipstick in Trendsetter sets the look.


Mother says I need to look fresh for Eid. To look like you're wearing makeup 'but not too much.' So this look is perfect for glowing makeup, without any bold statement.

I used theBalm's Nude Tude Palette in Sultry, blending it on the lid. Then applied Snobby and TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer on the centre of the lid for shimmer. This creates a soft halo effect. I quickly lined my eyes then used Huda Beauty Lashes in Giselle. It is perfect pair for these looks. 

For the face, I kept everything blended. I used TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for my highlighter, and contoured with NYX Contour Pans. The lips were kept nude with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi.


Adding a little colour during Eid keeps makeup looking bold, without overpowering it. Though I used yellow, you can easily use other colours like green or blue to suit you.

I used Makeup Geek Eyeshadows in Creme Brûlée and Coco Bear to create a basic eyeshadow look. To add the pop of colour, I applied NYX Eyeshadow Base as a white base on the inner corner. With a bright yellow shade from NYX Ultimate Shadows Palette in Brights.

I quickly lined my eyes with NYX Matte Liquid Liner then applied Mi-in Lashes in Santorini, for light cat-eye lashes. Lips were kept a nude brown with Alapnian So Alap! Matte Lip Cream in Fatima.

This was originally going to be five, but time restricted me. 

I've worn all these makeup looks out. Each look is unique but beautiful in its own right. Whether you go dark and smokey, or light and fresh, Eid is a time to feel your best. Dressing up and looking nice help quite a bit. 

So whatever you decide to wear, I wish you a happy Eid Mubarak!
