EID MUBARAK!!!
Finally got this post up!

Firstly I want to say I hope you had a blessed Ramadan and lovely Eid.
The month just flew by its so scary,
but I hope you made the best of the blessed month.


Last Ramadan Eid I wore an abaya,
I feel if you wear an abaya all through Ramadan it's only right to go for an abaya for Eid. 
So I knew I wanted to wear an abaya but I had no idea where to even begin.
Honestly I was so delayed in choosing an outfit
but I thought I'd give the layer look a try.
Also for some reason I always gravitate towards RED!

OOTD:


Black A-Line Abaya - I actually had this sown but almost every person that sells abayas has this in stock.

Red (stretch/jersey fabric) Throw - Hayati 

Gold Belt - Blackdiiamonds [instagram] - you can find this sold everywhere nowadays

Necklace and big ring - China Town 

Lace-up Boot Heels - Legit 

Hijab - Kashkha (soft material - new line)



I tried a new turban style!
Ah if you want to see a video tutorial let me know and I will get to it. 

MAKEUP:
I literally went and re did my makeup 10 minutes before people started arriving!
It was so not a makeup day for me, I had to re do my face.

So I don't wear makeup everyday especially liner and lashes so I try to glam up for special occasions
so I step up my game,
that however backfires because I never practice with stuff like liner and lashes!

Anyway I knew I wanted a bold lip so I decided to go for simple eyes, harsh contour and highlight.
Always keep a balance you don't way to go hectic on every point on your face.

If you do simple eyes than you can do a bold lip and face because it will balance it out,
and vise versa; dramatic eyes and subtle lips.

lol and than I started to pose with my dad's toppie. 
Well that's what we desi people like to call the Islamic head wear for men, 
only this is from Kashmir and I love it because I'm Kashmiri at heart,
but I also look like I'm embracing my African culture.
Love it!

    1. Aww jazakallah you're too sweet <3 yeah I don't think dramatic eyes as well as the rest of the face looks good, sometimes simple or a balanced makeup look is more natural.
