Yesterday was a great time for Riyadh beauty and lifestyle bloggers as we were treated to an event by Sephora Middle East at the posh Al Mashreq Boutique Hotel. The Sephora Masterclass was graced by Helen Phillips, member of the Sephora Pro Team USA. The exclusive masterclass was originally on the correct use of makeup brushes but Helen focused on how to create a nice smokey eye and what eye brushes should be used. Her model has really wide eyelids and she’s perfect for the demo on eye makeup.
She also dished out on some makeup application tips. Probably the one advice that got to me is to first put on makeup on the eye that you’re most awkward with then do the eye that you’re more comfortable in doing so that they balance out almost perfectly. So for example, my weak side is my right eye because I feel like my hand/arm is not stretched enough to apply eye products on my right eyelids. I feel more comfortable doing my left eyelids and brows so I put makeup on it first then do the right which makes my eye makeup a bit off kilter. So from now on, right before left for me!
It was also the launch of Sephora’s Nuit Kajal, a 2 in 1 product that can serve both as a liner and an eyeshadow. It comes in four shades: Fantastic Black, Enchanting Beige, Charming Brown, and Attractive Blue. Helen used the Enchanting Beige as a base eyeshadow on the model and used the Fantastic Black as an eyeliner. She used a brush to get some product from the kohl stick and applied it for a softer look. The Nuit Kajal is long-lasting and extremely intense. Its formula is enriched with wax roses known for its soothing properties. It can give the eyes extreme depth to the eyes and is perfect for glam and formal looks.
The Nuit Kajal will be available soon in all Sephora branches in Riyadh. For more information, visit sephora-me.com.
