1. Universal Smokey Eye A deep, dense smokey eye look can be used for a gorgeous bridal look or a glamorous night out in town. Bina uses Vanessa Myrick’s waterproof cushion liner to carefully line the eyes, paired with Salwa Adamaney mink collection lashes in ‘naughty-taughty’ to give a sexy, cat-eye look
Bina’s tried and tested hack, using L’oreal True Match Foundation in dark coffee onto eyeshadow to blend the smokey eye well together, gives an intense deep smokey effect. The finished makeup is gorgeous, as promised.
2. Bridal Makeup Combining a glittery eye with dark tones and a garnet lip, Bina creates a dramatic bridal look. To set the skin for heavy makeup, Bina uses Farsali radiance skin serum, gently applying it on the pore-prone areas of the face. Matched with a brand-favourite, Bina uses the L’Oreal fallible mattifying primer, applying with a brush on the nose, forehead, and cheeks. The YSL Touche Eclat Foundation is then easily applied on primed and plumped skin, leaving a mattified and stunning bridal look when finished.
3. Daytime Registry look Bina’s registry look focuses on building depth and staying matte with halo eyes and an offset pink lip. Bina uses the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation to contour the cheekbones, nose and forehead, blending well. She then combines Pat McGrath Labs Foundation and Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation to create a base layer, using a T-zone method, applying on the forehead, down the nose, cheeks and jawline. The finished look is simple yet flawless.
