Cleopatra makeup look

Cleopatra is one of my favorite historical characters. I do not know what she would have looked like in person, but I am sure she was gorgeous in her own way. This is my interpretation of how she would have looked. I was inspired to do this video by Kandeejohnson (YouTube). She did a look very similar to that Elizabeth Taylor wore in the movie (Cleopatra). Here are the pictures and the tutorial.

Products used are:
Maybelline - Brown eyebrow pencil (eyebrow)
Ben nye - Black matte eyeshadow (eyebrow)
No brand - Gold eyeliner (base for all over lid)
La femme - Aqua sparkle dust (lid)
Mac - Liquid liner boot black (upper and lower lid)
Sephora - White eyeliner (corner of the lid)
Maybelline - Volume express turbo mascara (eyelashes)
Nyx - Copper blush
Nyx - Bronze jumbo lip pencil
Lakme - Brown lip pencil

Love Love!


  1. I hope you do not think I am exaggerating but I like to think Cleopatra looked like you. You have such expressive, Egyptian eyes, full lips just like the Egyptians and the nose, oh my God, I could sing your praises all day long. lol (I know, I sound lesbian, hehe) You are an exotic beauty and so beautiful, your pictures are a pleasure to the eye. ;) Please post more Arabic looks, your skills are indeed desirable. :) God bless.
