Since returning from Japan I’ve been busy assembling, editing, and creating new designs. That, and there is the daily practice thing too. Days ago I looked at some of my old illustrations I did months ago and I was shocked! At that time I thought my illustrating style was really good and I was so proud of my work but looking at it now, I can’t help but laugh, lol.
Still, that didn’t demotivate me to quit. I’ve been practicing even more these days for I believe it’s time to develop my style even more now. I don’t always have the time to practice that much especially when it comes to painting, which is why I have my sketchbook and black markers with me almost all the time.
This helped me work anywhere I was and at any time. I don’t have to stay at my own studio to design or paint. I can easily do that anywhere.
Back to the present, I cannot believe that 10 days are already gone from the beginning of Ramadan! In this holy month, muslims from all over the world fast from dawn till sunset for a whole month. During Ramadan, the whole atmosphere differs from any other month. Our meal differs a little, we were long dresses called ‘Dara’a’, and we gather more. There is around 20 more days till the end of Ramadan so I’ll talk about it even more in my next post(s). So far, I’ve been to several gatherings and as much as I’d like to take full photos of my outfit and makeup but I forget to do so. The night is too short and I actually don’t have a photographer around. Which is why I captured parts of my outfits.
For the latest gathering I work chevron peplum vest with black trousers and glittery shoes by Kurt Geiger. I bought top finger rings from Japan and I loved them.
For my makeup, I made a list of the products I used at that day:
Concealer: Jill Stuart, cream yellow #03
Foundation: I mixed Bobbi Brown, warm beige + Jill Stuart liquid foundation, nude #103
Eyeliner: Liquid eyeliner from Heroine + Mint green eye pencil, #11.
Lipliner: Illamasqua, Severity.
Lipstick: First I applied Viva Glam Matte from Mac, then applied Dark Romance #177 from IsaDora.
Blusher: Cream cheek base from Laduree, #02.
Highlighter: Canmake, milky white #01.
I’m having another gathering tomorrow and I hope I’ll get to photograph myself this time. Take a look at my instagram feed for my latest illustrations and patterns.
