Nigerian Wedding: Flawless Makeup Tutorial For The Hijabist By Mimi Makeovers

Cut-Crease Awesomeness by Mimi Suleiman!

Most ladies find it hard to find the perfect kind of makeup to wear with their hijabs. However there are different colours you can use with your makeup that can work to accentuate the beauty of your hijab especially when you play with your eyeshadow colors. This playful look features 3 major colours. Frost white in the inner crease, champagne middle crease, and dark brown on the outer crease and as transition colour. The light pink lippie tones down the overall look and makes it ideal for a girl’s day out or dinner with your boo. Check out the list of products used by our #Makeup artist crush….Mimi Suleiman for Mimi Makeovers!
