Beautylicious: Makeup Tips for Eid


Eid is just around the corner, which means EID PARTIES. In Jeddah people generally celebrate for 3 days. In this month’s Beautylicious, Nilo Haq gives us some simple tips and tricks to keep you looking beautiful on some of the most important days of the year.

  • Its Eid…you are going to be eating. To make your lipstick last longer; fill in the entire lip with a neutral pencil before applying colour.
