Virtual Eid Celebration Look with Benefit Cosmetics
By Yara Ayoob, Regional Brow Artist at Benefit Cosmetics
Eid is just around the corner and it’s almost time to celebrate! Who says we can’t get all dolled up while staying home this year? I’m going to let you in on an easy and gorgeous makeup look that will have your family and friends showering you with compliments through video call! Since no one can see our faces up close through video calls, you don’t even have to worry about having a full face of makeup. All you have to do is throw on your favorite outfit and leave the rest to me!
Step 1: Conceal your blemishes and dark areas!
The best part about video calls is that you don’t even need foundation. The camera will instantly make your face look more uniform and smoother. It won’t, however, make any discoloration or imperfections go away. All you have to do is grab Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer and spot-conceal any acne or dark spots you may have. Follow by sweeping some concealer under your eyes and wherever you have any discoloration and blend with your fingers. That’s all you need for a flawless base! You can even go the extra mile by brightening your face with a concealer that is 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone. Apply the brighter concealer to the inner corner of your eyes, the bridge of your nose, the center of your forehead, your cupid’s bow, and the center of your chin then blend with a sponge or a brush. You’ll instantly look more awake and ready to take on all your video calls for the day.
Step 2: Fill in your brows!
Since your brows give your face balance, you’re going to need a super thin microfilling brow pencil like Precisely, My Brow Pencil to get your brows looking as snatched as possible. In order to properly fill in your brows and make them symmetrical; you’re going to need to find the start, arch, and end of your brows through a method called Brow Mapping. Find the start of your brows by holding the pencil vertically against the dimple of your nose and mark the area. This will make your nose appear slimmer! Find your arch by placing the pencil at the corner of your nose, through your pupil, and mark the area above your brow. Your arch opens up your eyes and gives your face a lift – which will definitely be evident through anyone’s screen! Lastly, this is where the balance comes in. Find the end of your brows by positioning the pencil at the corner of your nose to the corner of your eye and mark the area. All you have to do now is fill in your brows with some hair-like strokes by following the outline you’ve created, and your brows will take your entire look to a whole new level! Top off the look with some Gimme Brow+ Volumising Eyebrow Gel for added volume and dimension and you’re good to go.
Step 3: Bring on some major lashes!
To make your lashes stand out in your group video call, layer your favorite mascaras for a doll-eyed look. Start off by applying Roller Lash mascara to your lashes until you reach your desired curl. Next, pump up the volume with a few coats of BadGal BANG! Volumising Mascara and prepare to mesmerize!
Step 4: Get that indoor tan!
Since all of us are home for the summer, why not act like we’re on vacation by swiping some Hoola Matte Bronzer to for that indoor tan? Apply some bronzer to your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline for a sun-kissed look. Add some GALifornia blush to the apples of your cheeks for a sunny golden pink look that is perfect for summer! Finish off with Cookie Powder Highlighter on the highest points of your cheeks and the bridge of your nose for that amazing glow that sparkles through any screen!
Step 5: Add a pop of color to your lips!
Tie up the entire look with a fiery red pop of color like Lovetint Cheek & Lip Stain! Perfect for a virtual Eid hangout with your besties. The best part about it is that it’s long lasting so you can chit chat all night without having to worry about reapplying!
There you have it! Some easy yet effective tips and tricks to look your best during your virtual Eid celebration. Eid Mubarak!
