  2. I love your blending. It transitions so well from one shade to the other. I seem to keep moving product when I do it and end up taking twice as long! :( Any hints?

    My family are from the Middle East and having watched Arabic tv for years every day, I've pretty much seen every 'Middle Eastern' look out there on celebs and tv show hosts and by wedding make up artists.

    I don't think anyone on Youtube whom I've seen so far has managed to do a perfect smokey eye when going for the 'Middle Eastern' look as they always get the base tones/shades right, but not the highlighter colour. 9/10 times, MUA/celebs don't use silvery/white eyeshadow highlighters unless they're really light (ie. not our shade of brown, but rather 'olive' or 'tanned' in the Mediterranean sense). On skin as dark as ours, using white/silver shades gives us inverse panda eyes in my opinion.

    The darker shimmer Sleek palette has a great peach coloured shimmer highlighter which isn't too shimmery. There's also 'All that glitters' by MAC.

    Making that one change would perfect this look!

    See pictures as examples - the highlighter has shimmer, but blends in colour/tone wise with the rest of the face:
