Marzia Arbab Real Housewives of Abu DhabiSo with holidays now a distant memory, we should take more time to look after ourselves. There are always opportunities for us housewives to look beautiful and that is why I am here.  To share my knowledge and my love of make up.  I love makeup because how it makes me feel.  It only takes a few extra minutes in the morning but your whole attitude changes when you know you look good. I will be sharing with the Real Housewives of Abu Dhabi my top tips on looking fabulous.  Today we start with my top tips for a glamourous look.

Bold Brows
Eyebrows frame the face and so its very important to fill them with the right products.

  1. Draw the outside of the brow with a sharp brow liner.
  2. Best to fill with a gel or a powder products.
  3. Dont forget to seal with a brow gel or comb with a spool (clean mascara brush).

Favorite Brow Products:

Lancome le sourcil brow pencil
Aqua brow eyebrow corrector from Makeup Forever
Anastasia of Beverley Hills Dipbrow Pomade (smudge proof/perfect for arch and definition)
Revlon Brow Fantasy pencil and gel
Benefit Gimme Brow (great for volumizing the brows)

Bold Smokey Eyes and Wingliner

  1.  af7d17157b4bb4e4a62bf661cf94b134For a beautiful smokey effects that’s easy to do and dramatic you can smudge black gel liner on top of the eye lid as a liner and under the eye.
  2. Add beautiful rich hues of blue eyeshadow(blue looks beautiful on almost everyone and its a colour that,s always in).
  3. For a pop of colour you can do a wing liner with a brush using a light glittery colored pencil like silver or gold in the inner corners of eyes.
  4. A beautiful wing liner with a gel (Inglot gel #77 or Maybeline gel liner) will stay put all day!
  5. For a more smokey and full lash effect do a dark liner right under the top lashes (tight line).

P.S.   If you have beautiful light blue eyes opt for a smokey brown liner that will give you a smokey eye but softer!

Mascara and Full Lashes

  1. s1343938-main-LheroIf you Already have full and long lashes then just add 2-3 coats of a dark black mascara
  2. To Make the mascara more bold use a lash primer like the Dior lash primer
  3. If you have shorter lashes, do 2 coats of mascara on your lashes then follow with some falsies (my fav is hudabeautylashes in Samantha)
  4. Make sure you comb lashes with a plain brush to take out all the clump!

Favorite mascaras: Benefits They’re Real, Lancome Hypnose and Rimmel Scandalous

Contour and Highlight

  1. It’s very important after your eyes are done to do a nice bronzer and highlighter contour on the face
  2. Go for a bronzer 1-2 shades darker than your foundation/powder
  3. Highlight the areas that the light will hit like the forehead and top of nose/cheeks
  4. Less is more so do little at a time until your happy with the results
  5. Blending is very important with a nice buffing brush blend in circular motions, get rid of any harsh lines!

Bold Lips

  1. Lips RHWADTheres nothing that screams hot mama louder than a bold lip.  Don’t be afraid to try something new.
  2. Bold doesn’t necessary mean red, it could be a darker pink or a darker nude than what you are used to wearing everyday.
  3. A beautiful lined lip with a natural colored lip liner will give your lipstick staying power and stops the lips from bleeding.
  4. Dont forget to clean around the lips with a clean flat concealer brush a Q-tip after applying a bold lip color!
  5. You can also add a clear gloss or a bit of concealer in the middle of your lips for fuller looking lips.
