I’m obsessed with the Kardashian sisters and I couldn’t figure out why until recently.
You know what it is? For the first time in the media I’m seeing people who are of Middle Eastern ancestry, like me. As I was growing up, I never saw anyone similar on tv or in magazines, which was not easy during my teenage years! It took me quite some time to realize I didn’t really look like a Sweet Valley twin, and accepting my features and my crazy, curly hair took a while.
Anyway, there are quite a few makeup tutorials on YouTube featuring the Kardashian sisters and I really like this one with Kim and her makeup artist Stephen Moleski. Here’s my version of the smokey purple eyes.
Stephen also has a great tip in this video, which is to put excess product from your brush onto a CD. Nice!
