The Base:

Like most of the make-up bases, use a good foundation, corrector and concealer to give the face a smooth and even tone. This is beneficial to hide the fine lines and patches (if any) on the skin. Use a moist make-up pad and mix it on the skin by gently dabbing it all over the face and eyes.

Apply dots of concealer and foundation on the neck and ears. Blend them to the skin and pat using a moist pad. Make sure you use the right shade of the base to prevent the cakey look. Also hide the darkness above the lid and under the eye using a corrector.

Apply foundation on the lips too. This prevents the lip colour from spreading and makes the lipstick long lasting.

The Eyes:

We start with the eyes. Apply a matte shade along the crease to give depth to the eyes. Make sure you so not use a very dark tone because this is a base colour and highlighting will require a lot of kohl. Too dark a base and there are chances that one might look dark.

With the use of smudge free kohl and a lot of eye shadows, give the eyes the right look. Use shades of colours that belong to the same family as Arabic make up does not involve a lot of colours.
Apply several coats of a dark shade of mascara that goes well with your eye make-up shade, this will add a lot of volumes to the eye lashes making the eyes look denser.

The Lips:

Peaches and pretty pinks are the most used shades for lips. Use a very light shade lip liner to outline the lips and give it a definite shape. Do not try to make the lips look bigger by outlining on the outer corner. Using a similar shade of lipstick, apply the light base on overall lips.

With a nude gloss on the lower lips only; complete the overall look and make the lips look plump. This is essential to add shine to the lips without making them look dark. Application of lipstick should be done using a brush for an even tone on the lips. Do not use dark shades, this will give a very bold look.

The Cheeks:

There are very subtle highlights on the cheeks that comprise mainly of basic pinks that do not have a lot of glitter. Using a glittery blush on shade can make one look dark and unnecessary highlighting can look very cakey.

Start from inner cheeks and use a big brush to spread out the shade to the outer corner. Use of appropriate brushes also plays an important role in any make up.

Use of the right soft shades is of utmost importance in Arabic Bridal make-up, or for that matter any make-up. It surely is the biggest day of one’s life and nothing can be better than having a complete make-over with this simple and easy formula.
