Eid 2016 What I Wore

Eid Accessories

Eid is the celebration after 30 days of fasting (Ramadan). It is a time to reflect on the past 30 days, where we as Muslims fast to feel empathy with the poor and we also give to charity because this is what we need to be thankful for.

The best thing about Eid is to see children enjoying themselves and to see their faces light up when opening their presents or when they receive  money. Eid really is for everyone, but made even special when all the family get together and have fun!

Eid also is a day to dress up – come on isn’t that the best thing for any one, especially for the ladies. Getting a new suit is so exciting and can make you feel special, especially when it’s from a loved one.

Here is what I wore. My suit was made of velvet, it was a very thin velvet, so perfect for the light warm weather that we are having now in early July. The outfit was black velvet with brownish patterns and made of a silk. The suit is from Sarah Zaaraz in Tooting and very elegant. The neck is adorned with a simple brooch type jewel that is stitched in consisting of clear stones. It was also a perfect fit which made it very flattering and as it was black it was also slimming to the eye.

With the outfit, I wore a similar necklace that had white stones in it, black stoned bangles and a brown ring. The makeup I paired it with was the following:


Eyes – I used eye shadows from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette.
Eyeliner – From Inglot, as this is the blackest black
Contour and highlight – I used was from the Freedom Pro Strobe and Contour Powder Palette with brush
Lips – Mac Sore lipliner with the Tanya Burr Martha Moo Luxe Lip Gloss

Here are some pictures – I hope you like my outfit too!

I also wore my Daniel Footwear shoes, which were a perfect match!
