We’re just a few days away from Raya, and there’s no better time to start looking for beauty inspirations for this year’s celebrations than now. Looking gorgeous during Raya should be our first priority – except from devouring all of the scrumptious food like there’s no tomorrow, of course. So, in addition to picking the ideal makeup style, you’ll need amazing beauty items to complete your look.
Thus, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite must-have beauty items that any make-up fanatic would be happy to wear this Eid al-Fitr.
With built-in wide spectrum UV protection, this hydrating primer offers a wonderfully dewy and radiant canvas for makeup. It provides the necessary protection from the sun while also giving your skin that radiant Raya glow.
Benefit Cosmetics has to be the greatest pore-filling primer. We’d be remiss if we didn’t include the POREfessional Face Primer in our must-have list. This silky-soft, smoother-than-smooth primer blurs flaws and minimises the appearance of pores and small wrinkles for silky-soft, smoother-than-smooth skin. Additionally, it aids in the application and retention of makeup, ensuring that your Raya makeup lasts for a long time.
On a hot day, wearing a lot of foundation might ruin your appearance. So, for the ideal no-makeup makeup look, go for Fenty Beauty’s Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint Foundation. It’s buildable in coverage for when you want to cover up any blemishes or defects, quickly evening out your complexion and giving you a pleasing blurred appearance, and it’s also moisturising, giving your skin that additional plumpness it needs.
Matte Skinsticks have the power to sculpt your face for the GODS! The contour stick is designed to be layer-able and buildable, allowing you to gradually shape your face. It boasts a weightless cream-to-powder consistency that is simple to blend and budge-proof, so you won’t have to worry about your contour slipping and sliding all day.
The cult-favorite Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush is the perfect blush to use for this year’s Raya. It has the most pigmented formulation and blends like a dream on your cheeks. The formula is light and airy, blending and building colour smoothly for a delicate blush of colour. It layers well over liquid and powder formulations without affecting makeup, and a little goes a long way with this product.
Considering we can’t rely on our primer and foundation alone to make us seem dazzling and beautiful this Eid al-Fitr, settling for a dramatic highlight will ensure that you look like the glowing goddess that you are. OFRA’s highlighter is a must-have in any highlighter collection, as its velvety, pearl pigment highlighter captures light in all the perfect places and beautifully brightens your complexion.
The ABH Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 6 should be your go-to eyeshadow palette if you want to have some fun with your eye makeup. A magnificent assortment of brilliant colours ranging from greens to pink, as well as various formulas ranging from glitters to matte, are perfect for adding some colour to your makeup look for this year’s Raya.
Tarte offers THE neutral palette that contains not only the greatest formulation but also a selection of different shades of neutral and pinks for folks who want to create a soft glam eye look. With this palette, you can create any look imaginable, with shimmers and matte at your display and you wouldn’t need to fuss with blending as well, as Amazonian clay provides that buttery, smooth texture for looks that last.
If you’re contemplating whether you want a glossy and satin finish or a matte finish for your lips this coming Raya, ABH provides the best of both worlds. Their newest lipstick range has both satin and matte finishes for you to choose from that will easily pull your whole makeup look together. It’s buttery, silky and smooth on the lips and will last you the entire day even as you’re munching on kuih-muih.
Now is not the time to dismiss the need of a setting spray, because it is the key to ensuring that your makeup lasts all day. Choose MAC Cosmetics Fix+ Setting Spray Magic Radiance – Moisturizing Skin Mist to appear radiant all day with a hint of shine. This skin mist with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and essential oils hydrates and nourishes skin while providing a boost of brightness, making it an artist’s must-have for smooth, supple, healthy-looking, and radiant skin.
Benefit Cosmetic The POREfessional Super Setter Makeup Setting Spray is a budge-proof and transfer-proof spray that also blurs pores and leaves skin feeling smooth, rejuvenated, and hydrated. After a few spritzes on your face once you’ve completed your makeup, you’ll notice how plump your skin looks and how shine is reduced for a natural-looking, soft-focus finish.
