Arab women tend to have big, gorgeous eyes and they play it up with the use of heavy eye makeup products –– be it a winged eyeliner, smokey eye, heavy eyelashes, or just kajal, it’s all about the eyes. The use of bold hues like black, grey, brown, red, blue, all play an important role in creating these looks. Throw in some fake lashes and strong brows, and you’re good-to-go. Scroll down to see how you can recreate these Arabic eye makeup looks easily.

This Arabic eye makeup look gives the cut-crease an exotic touch. You can go for hues of brown and gold, and pair it with a whole lot of shimmer. Use other makeup products and pair this look with a nude lip and a heavy contour, for the full effect.


How To Create The Look


Step 1 - Apply Eyeshadow


After priming your eyelids, use an eyeshadow palette that has pigmented shades of brown, black, and gold. You need a whole lot of shimmer for this look. Apply a matte mauve shade in your crease and blend it so that it looks seamless. Now apply a lighter brown on your eyelids and top it off with a shimmery gold. Apply a light brown hue just under your crease and extend it to create a wing. Highlight your brow bones.

Step 2 - Add A Dramatic Eyeliner


Use liquid eyeliner and line your eyes with it. Think thick! You want to create an angular wing and not a cat eye. Make sure the ends are really, really sharp. Use a concealer if you want to correct the edges.

You know a normal smokey? Now take that up a couple of notches. This Arabic eye makeup look is intense and dramatic, so give it all you got!


How To Create This Look:


Step 1 - Eyeshadow First


This smokey eye is a little bit different –– instead of the normal light to dark, go from dark to light. Apply the dark brown hue in the inner corners of your eyes. Apply the light shimmery hue in the centre of the lid and finish off the look with a warm mauve on the outer corners. Don’t blend the colours into each other, but just blend them where they connect.

While this Arabic eye makeup look seems a little more subtle compared to the others, it actually can be played up to appear more dramatic. Again, the focus is one the eyes, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t hold back on the cheeks and lips. 


How To Create This Look:


Step 1 - Start With Some Eyeshadow


Apply a wash of red eyeshadow on your eyelids and blend it out, all the way into your crease. Use a light brown eyeshadow to highlight the brow bones.
