Arabian Nights Look

Here’s a look that I did for Spankedelic’s 1 year anniversary/Arabic inspired make-up contest. I had done another look originally, which I’ll post later today but I wanted to go brighter & more colourful for the contest. She also added a question. If you answer that, you will be qualified to win even if you don't do an Arabic inspired look. Click here for more information about that. Here’s my answer to the question:

Why did you join blogger & why does
make-up/beauty appeal to you?

I first came across Blogger when I was browsing through make-up videos on YouTube & I’ve been reading blogs since then (mainly beauty related ones). I joined blogger to express my views & share interesting information that I have found while browsing online. I recently started getting into eyeshadows (around November last year) & I thought it would be a good way to track my progress on eyeshadow application & have a collection of different looks that I have tried all in one place. Another reason why I joined blogger is because I want to start a blog on tourist spots in my area, reviews, & things to do, so this is sort of a practice blog till I get the hang of blogging. Also, I saw all the great contests going on & of course I HAD to participate, so I thought I might as well start up a blog.

Make-up/beauty appeals to me because of the way it can transform a person & make them look way hotter than they were before (if it's done right that is)! Once a girl knows that she looks good, the confidence just comes from within. I also apply henna & I think that anything make-up/beauty related (whether it's make-up or henna) helps me express my creativity through my work, which is why I love it!

Hope you like the look.
