Moroccan Bridal – Amira (The Princess)

This look is a personal favourite of mine, and can suit any girl wanting to look and feel special for her big day. In contrast to the traditional Moroccan chedda look we saw in the previous blogpost. The Amira look would consist of less accessories, brighter colours worn, and softer makeup and hair. Enjoy the video below. Please take the time to like and subscribe. Thank you x

Cat eyes

After some time off (and not out of choice) I am back with this cat eye eyeliner look. I have not exaggerated the eyeliner too much I may do an exaggerated eyeliner one day in the near future. I’m all about manipulating products to accentuate features. Whether it be light and dark to create depth in a person’s features in this case I have used eyeliner to make my eyes appear larger. As I have really small eyes. For the liner  the inner corners I extended the eyeliner right above my tear duct and connected a small point below the tear duct as well as extending my eyeliner further on the outer corner of my eyes. N.B This look would not compliment someone with close-set eyes.   And for added pizzazz (lol) I’m wearing Solotica lenses.

Bridal Make Up

When bridal make up is concerned there is are so many options to go for, conventionally clients prefer a natural look.

For a more natural look, I do encourage my clients to have something accentuated whether it be the lips or eyes or even skin and contour.

For this look in particular I worked on the skin and winged eyeliner. There are no rules when bridal make up is concerned and for a vintage liner and hair, this particular eye make up compliments ALL eyes, even hooded eyes.

As I have an issue with my mega small eyes I feel comfortable having nude eyeliner in my water line to create the illusion they are larger than what they are.
