I have always loved Yasmeen Ghauri (always). I was so happy to come across a breakdown of her make-up. It's such a vampy look but still understated.
The products mentioned aren't available anymore, but I have a couple of suggestions:
- Instead of Estee Lauder's Rose Tutu blush, Milani Mango Tango dusted on very lightly. I know this is discontinued but you might still be able to find it. Another suggestion is Nars Turkish Red.
- Instead of Estee Lauder's Silent Red lipstick, Bobbi Brown Chocolate Cherry rouge pot.
- Instead of Estee Lauder's Gala eyeshadow duo, try Nars Blondie or Bali for a medium, matte taupe. As a highlighter colour you could try any creamy beige.
Prep skin with the moisturizer and eye cream of your choice. Let it sink if for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Apply a medium, satin finish foundation. Don't forgot to blend into the neck. Apply concealor where needed, making sure to blend the concealor into the foundation. Apply translucent powder to set the base.
As always, I recommend using a base to make the eyeshadow last longer and be more true to the pan colour.
The shadows for this look are understated and require the eyes to be framed very well. Tweeze away any stray hairs and comb your eyebrows with a spoolie brush. Fill in your eyebrows where they are sparse. You can then set your eyebrows with some brow gel.
Apply a neutral taupe eyeshadow from lash line to crease.
Apply the highlight from brow bone to crease. Blend the two shadows together at the crease.
Curl your lashes and apply a lengthening mascara. Yasmeen's lashes are very defined and to me she seems to have some extra clumps of false lashes, but I find that Revlon's Luxurious Lengths mascara gives me a similar effect. Be sure to use a lash come to get rid of clumps.
Dust a coral blush with red undertones very sheerly from the apple of the cheek to the temple.
Apply a creamy deep cherry red lipstick with brown undertones. Make sure that the texture of the lipstick is creamy and adds some shine. You could use a lip liner in a similar colour to deepen it.
