These pictures are actually a week old plus – as I mentioned, I’ve been insanely busy moving, traveling, and getting situated here in Cairo (if it is a little quiet on here sometimes, you can always check out my Instagram account). First up, I’m showing some love for the June 30 protests (for pressuring purposes: although I certainly wasn’t sad to see Morsi go I’m not really a fan of the coup, but I’ll save that for a later post) with a more natural, Ramadan appropriate makeup.
Those of you who’ve followed me for a while know how big of a fan I am of heavy eye makeup and this is definitely not the end of that. I just felt like I’ve had a daily overdose of makeup for some months now, and thus I’m trying a mild rehab approach to my face. The below left picture is representative of my current daily makeup, the one to the right is my makeup in Spain (in the evening, but nevertheless, you get my point, I believe..).
Below is what I wore on my last day in Michigan before setting out on new adventures. It was quite a busy last day as I had to fit in a Skype interview with Levant TV, an abaya photoshoot (see previous post), and the moving of all my belongings to a storage. These two year old palazzo pants saw the light again after a long time off duty, as they are ideally comfy for all the activity. Pheww. Glad to be done.
