arabic bronze with implied double winged lining

I don’t usually wear contours this strong, because it makes my face look a bit puffy. I don’t really have the bone structure to pull it off well.

    Very pretty! It kinda reminds me of something you’d see in the movie Alexander.

      If you say so…. I don’t really care for it. I may try to refine it though. I just think it makes my face look too round. I don’t like such linear curves for my makeup.

    Yeah, this is beautiful on you. I love the under-eye dark and the Gesso between the wings!! You go girl!

      How did it work out? I kind of want to retry this—I think using a more matte crease, a little sharper might set off the contour a bit better. I may go back and try to refine this one.

    I love Arabic makeup, and this one is a great example how to put it on perfectly. Loved the winged liner!

      Thanks. I didn’t want the wings to be as harsh as my usual liners, so I just used my dark shadow for them. I’m still iffy on the overall look, mainly because I don’t feel it’s the most flattering on MY face shape. I LOVE the style of makeup though, and I WILL get good at it if it kills me!
