How to: STROBING! + Highlighting Tips

Happy Sunday my loves, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! So many of you have asked for a strobing tutorial even though we all know that its the same thing as highlighting just sans the contour. I can’t live without my contour so I’ve put together a video with my highlight recipe ;) — trust me when I say it’s layers upon layers lol. Highlighters are truly an addiction for me, let me know what your fav products are below! PS what do you guys think of my new filming set up?! This was my second go at it and I like it so much more than my last video! I’m just obsessed with how it looks in this video – it reminds me a lot of my photography work in motion! Let me know what you think!

Enjoy!

Glowy Summer Bridal Tutorial

TGIF!!!!! I am so happy it’s almost the weekend and I have a little end of the week treat for you! If you follow me on snapchat (irenesarah) you know that I was shooting with Neutrogena last week. I was so excited to work with them and had such a wonderful time! They sent me home with a few goodies to create a summer bridal makeup tutorial with. Natural makeup for me is still heavy glam just not as dramatic with the eyes – so this is my take on a soft and glowy look perfect for a summer bride!

Enjoy!

Retro Plum Makeup Tutorial

Back to liiiiiife, back to reality!

For those of you that were celebrating Ramadan & Eid – Eid Mubarak!!! I realize now that I need to pre-record/write all of my content before Ramadan haha! It was an amazing month but I’m not going to lie.. workwise, it was super unproductive. I spent Eid in Connecticut and New York, I made it back home last night, I’m feeling amazing after a long night’s rest, and I am ready to get back to work!! I filmed this tutorial hours before leaving for the East Coast last week and I was obsessed with the eyeshadow palette I used: Pür Minerals’ Soul Mattes. Its a neutral-ish palette, the colors are blush, plum, & brick toned – super earthy and feminine! The packaging is great and compact so I packed it with me for my trip and its the only eyeshadow palette I needed! Enjoy!

Eid عيد Makeup // Long Wearing & EASY!

Hi guys!!! I put together a suuuuper easy tutorial today that I think would be perfect for Eid this week if you’re celebrating – it’s super simple, pretty quick, and looks like you put in a lot more time and effort than you really [secretly] did! Pops of color are a great way to fake it. Enjoy!

Green Eye + “Greige” Lip

Happy Monday! I’ve been playing around with more color lately and have been trying to step a bit outside of my comfort zone. I picked up Stone from MACs new range of matte lipsticks and I am obsessed with the color!! I call it greige… grey-beige, get it? I think my tube might be a dud though and I may have to go back and exchange it.. it just doesn’t wear like a matte, more like a satin or lustre booo! I do love the color though so I created a look around my lipstick of choice and ended up with a very muted, cool toned look. I hope you guys love it!
