Being the quiet, shy, mousey sort of girl that I can sometimes be I tend to stay as FAR away from bright yellow as I can!
Neon pink, purple, green & even orange I can stomach but all-out yellow makes me shiver with fright. I envy those who can pull it off whilst looking cool, confident & suave.
Theoretically speaking – since I have dark hair & oliveish skin, yellow should look fantastic on me and so whats to fear? there’s just something about it which screams HI LOOK AT ME and makes me run a mile…however…whilst flicking through an arabic magazine I came across this beautiful outfit – j’adore – minus the earrings (hideous) but the dress oo la laa!
Dress from Blumarine
Granted, it’s not entirely yellow and the cynic in you will be screaming WOMAN can’t you see its black? but the splash of yellow is vibrant enough for me! I also love the contrasting lilac shadow – that’s not a combination I would have immediately thought of.
Surely you’ve been wondering where I’ve been? Eaten by a wild bear, fallen off the edge of the earth or just disappeared..bet you missed my random quirky posts…god knows I missed writing them 😦 but I was absolutely swamped in revision. Had my first exam…one down, three to go…
Today i’ve got a little something different for you. Yep thats right, to apologise for my absence I’m sharing an awesome make up video!Yes Make up, the secret arsenal of every intelligent woman…
Forget Bassam Fatouh & Hala Ajam…there’s a new face in town, and her name’s Hannan alNajjadah!
Striking sultry eyes, ridiculously long lashes, a flawless complexion and nude lips – Lebanese singer Rola S’ad most certainly rocks this look. If its one thing Arab women are famous for its their smokey kohl rimmed eyes.
– Line the waterline with a soft white kohl pencil – this serves to make the eyes appear larger (if you’re tanned opt for a nude shimmer liner instead, as white can look quite harsh)
– Use a black gel eyeliner or dark slate grey to frame the eyes taking care to leave both corners of the eye empty (this gives the illusion of elongated eyes)
– Blend away harsh lines for a soft feminine look, and apply top liner to the upper eyelid, blend outer edge with a dark grey to rid harsh lines
– Apply your falsies and tonnes of mascara
