Enchanting and seriously polished, Dolce & Gabbana Beauty’s Abaya Make Up Look for 2019 pays a perfect tribute to Arabic women. The curated edit of the Italian luxury label’s most iconic beauty products takes into consideration all that unique grace and sophistication women from the region exude. Here’s what to know about the easy-to-rock look that incorporates an immaculate, velvety complexion with intense eyes that have an exuberant baroque touch and subtle nude matte lips.
Moisturiser and Blush:
MILLENNIALSKIN On-The-Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 improves your complexion with a fresh, natural finish. Found in 10 shades, the lightweight, oil-free formula contains light-reflecting powders that instantly blur imperfections, while UVA and UVB filters protect your skin.
There’s nothing like The Blush in Mocha 28 to add that needed pop of delicate colour for a fresh, healthy glow. Laden with moisturisers and antioxidants, it’s a silky, shimmer-free powder in a pinky brown shade, just the right hue to help sculpt your face and create flattering contours.
With 18 options to choose from, Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation creates a perfect matte complexion with buildable coverage. Subsequently, you can tailor the finish to the needs of your skin. The foundation, which blends seamlessly into skin, has a formula that achieves a long-lasting, silky finish.
MILLENNIALSKIN On-The-Glow Longwear Concealer is your answer to making dark circles, blemishes and imperfections vanish. This on-the-go essential, which comes in seven tints, hones the complexion instantly, erasing signs of fatigue so your skin can look flawless, rested and healthy.
Mascara, Brow and Eye Liners:
As well as amping up volume, Passioneyes Mascara in Nero 1 has a curved wand that lifts lashes to create extra curl. Tapioca polymers lock your lashes in place and glycerin helps condition them to create a glossy finish free of clumps.
For spotlessly groomed brows with high definition, reach out for The Brow Liner in Mocha 3. The double-ended stick has an angled pencil on one end, enabling you to create meticulous strokes of any thickness. Plus, the spiral brush on the other end allows you to blend the colour in and groom brows into shape.
Coming in a tender yet smouldering shade of intense brown, The Eyeliner in Chocolate 10 is your go-to product for defined eyes. The smooth pencil comfortably glides onto lids, while the smudge applicator blends the colour to create various looks.
Intenseyes Creamy Eyeshadow Sticks, which come in bronze, gold and a rose gold hue, create mesmerising burnished eyes without the need of a brush. The product can be applied quickly and easily blended, plus the creamy texture transforms into a powder finish that’s good to go for the whole day.
Lip Colour and Lip Liner:
The Precision Lipliner in Cashmere 8 is the just the right shade of pinky nude to define your lips’ contours so you can go out with a beautifully balanced silhouette. Shea butter acts as a moisturiser, while the lip brush helps you blend in the colour in such a way you end up with a soft and natural result.
Dolcissimo Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Honey 15 is an exclusive shade for the Middle East. It’s a chic warm nude that dresses lips in an elegant yet understated colour. While intense matte pigments provide a long-lasting finish, the ‘second-skin’ formula has a natural feel.
A Step-By-Step Guide
If you want to try the complete look, start by mixing MILLENNIALSKIN Tinted Moisturizer with Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation. By doing this, you’ll create long-lasting coverage with an impeccable effect. Then you can correct any remaining imperfections with MILLENNIALSKIN Concealer and add some subtle colour to your cheeks with The Blush in Mocha 28.
Next, define and groom your brows with The Brow Liner in Mocha 3 before creating a smoky eye by blending the baroque tones of Intenseyes Creamy Eyeshadow together. You can add some extra definition to the eyes by smudging The Eyeliner in Chocolate 10 along the lashline, then sweeping Passioneyes Mascara in Nero 1 through lashes to create volume and eye-opening curl.
To finish the look, use The Precision Lipliner in Cashmere 8 to create the perfect defined lip shape and then layer Dolcissimo Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Honey 15 over the top for those nude matte lips.
