KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Sephora knows a thing or two about throwing a good party and last week saw the company’s first ever Hari Raya event. The highlight of the party was a special appearance by celebrity makeup artist, Tiar Zainal. In his first-ever collaboration with the brand, Zainal presented four beauty looks created entirely with Sephora’s in-house beauty range – the Sephora Collection.
The occasion was a success with a host of exciting activities for guests. Check out our gallery below to see the best moments of the party and read on for tips to recreate Tiar Zainal’s Sephora makeup looks for the festive season.
A Sephora Glam Raya by Tiar Zainal
Working with the theme, #sephoraglamraya, Zainal designed four very different, but striking looks for Hari Raya. The makeup artist hopes these personas will inspire our makeup style through the party circuit of this year’s Ramadan season.
Glamourous Queen – All About The Eyes
Changing up the usual dark, smoky eye with nuances of purple instead, Zainal created this look on Social Media sensation, Anissyafiraa. Zainal blended out shades of Sephora shadows in lavender and mauve all over the lid. He also ‘smoked out’ the shadow around the entire eye line.
With such a dramatic eye, the lips were deliberately played down with a low-key but glossy lip. The result is a high-glamour party look to last all night.
Cool Babe – Sport a Bold Pout
This face relies on a strong, dark lip. The effect is a younger look with a ‘rock chick’ attitude. Malaysian actress and singer, Liyana Jasmay, was Zainal’s muse for this persona.
The secret to the look is to use a lip product with an even spread of colour. Zainal recommends the Sephora Cream Lip Stain for long-lasting, even colour in a matte finish. We swear by it in other shades too but try it in Black Cherry #27 to recreate Zainal’s funky, Cool Babe look.
Edgy Chic – Contour Queen
Nude shades take center stage so skill with contouring are key to this persona. Consider good brushes to achieve the strong shading. We recommend Sephora’s Pro Contour Kabuki 82 for a versatile foundation brush to create this look. Popular actress and TV personality, Scha Alyahya, was the perfect model for this high-fashion, edgy look which showed off the actress’ high cheekbones and cat-like eyes.
Classic Beauty – Red Lip Glamour
The classic red lip will always have a place on the party circuit. And every woman should invest in at least one red lip product. There are dozens of ‘reds’ in the Sephora house range so you’ll easily find one that suits your skin tone.
To recreate Zainal’s Classic Beauty face, less is more but let the lips stand out with a sleek pop of red. The Sephora Cream Lip Stain does an excellent red in Always Red #01.
Stick to a neat rim of black liner and neutral shades for the eye lids. Keep the brows tidy to cap off a look that will never date with the seasons.
Makeup artist, Anis Fazura, was the perfect canvas for this elegant beauty look.
These Sephora Glam Raya looks by Tiar Zainal do a great job of demonstrating the completeness of the Sephora Collection as a comprehensive makeup range.
With Sephora Collection, creating a new beauty persona is easy with the sheer variety of products available for every aspect of the face. There are also many shades under each product line, so it’s a collection that’s suitable for a wide range of skin tones, and attitudes.
Pop into a Sephora store from 29th of May 2017 until the 28th of June 2017, for a complimentary makeup service to try any of Tiar Zainal’s festive looks. This service is available at all stores across the country during Ramadan.
Sephora Collection products are available exclusively at Sephora stores worldwide. In Malaysia, the brand is available at Sephora stores nationwide and via Sephora Malaysia online – The Binge
