The Holy Month of Ramadan is at the end and we know a lot of you are looking for some Eid makeup inspo. Contrary to popular belief, beauty and faith do intersect pretty often. Though, approaching beauty from an angle that is mindful of your faith can be tricky, it can be done. This is demonstrated by the lovely Hijabi’s featured below who have tastefully mastered beauty while remaining true to their beliefs. I have no doubt they will serve some serious hijabi makeup goals.
If you’ve ever looked up hijabi makeup on YouTube (or just makeup in general) then you have probably come across the stunning Manal Chinutay. Known as Chinutay on YouTube, she is one of the biggest names when it comes to hijabi makeup. Chinutay’s videos are a mix of vlogs, head wrap and turban tutorials as well as makeup tutorials. Her makeup tutorials are particularly popular due to the wide range of looks; from subtle nude looks to glamorous all – out face beats. Manal has made it known on her channel how important her faith is to her. Moreover, her goal of expanding the world of beauty to include women of all faiths, races and cultures.
She also has her own line of beautiful hijabs that come in a range of gorgeous shades. However, the most impressive thing about her line is her goal of inclusivity. The nude colored hijabs are designed to fit a wide range of skin tones.
Also a YouTuber, 23 year old Edna’s makeup looks are known for her blinding highlight (blinding in a good way). If you are looking to be beat for the gods, Edna is a definite go to for makeup inspiration. Her tutorials are also a favorite to many as she uses affordable make up products that are widely available.
She also posts quite a lot on skincare, which as we know, is the foundation of any beauty look. Her channel is made wholesome and relatable by the videos she posts discussing everyday issues concerning young Muslim women.
The gorgeous Sudanese- American YouTuber is known for the subtle makeup look tutorials on her channel, as well as her killer fashion sense. Shahd stands out as her channel was originally known for natural hair tutorials. This came to an end when she announced that she was going to start wearing a hijab and could no longer make the tutorials. Shortly after, she deleted all the videos on her channel in which her hair was exposed. With this bold move, Shahd perfectly demonstrated the importance of being true to yourself in a world that sometimes urges us to conform. Though her following did take a hit, her consistent delivery of makeup tutorials, fashion look books and vlogs of her daily life propelled her following which has grown rapidly since.
London based Basma Kahie originally broke out as a hijabi style blogger, but later went on to open her own scarf/hijab boutique,. Her boutique offers a beautiful array of scarf and hijabs for every mood and occasion. Basma shows us being modest in your dressing by no means involves compromising on fashion. Her style is a mix of sophistication, luxury and comfort.
She should definitely be your fashion inspo this Eid and while you are at it, you may draw some make up inspo too.
