I am a ghostwriter, my own ghostwriter. So while this blog is indeed mine, it is that of the shadowed selves i sometimes fail to recognise as being me. If writing writes you, sometimes revealing those things that you hadn't intended for it to say,* then I write with the intention of exposing me to myself. sketching serendipity therefore depicts a series of thoughts and experiences in the hope of projecting a multidimensional self-portrait in the making.

Bridal Make-up and Hijaab Ideas

I was inspired by a makeupgeek tutorial on how to do Arabian/ Middle Eastern make-up. It resulted in a bit of retail therapy at the Inglot counter in Cavendish Square.

I tried to recreate the look on my cousin's eyes using the wrong brushes (not intentionally - I was away from home). Curiously, it worked. The look is a subtle one, with hues in gold, brown and (a less visible) plum.

And my tool-kit? Laughable but workable:

  • The Classic Brow Brush #12 by Smashbox
  • Eyeshadow foam brush by Avon
  • Custom-made eyeshadow pallet by Inglot (see picture below)

To check out the tutorial and many others of its kind on makeupgeek, visit the link below:
