Today is the last day of Ramadan, and that marks the end of the Muslim’s holy month. Although Muslims all around the world are sad to see this month go, but after a month of fasting and spiritual cleansing, tomorrow is the day to celebrate and feast with all our close friends and family. Eid is my favorite holiday since I was a little girl, because my Mom would cook a feast and bake different kinds of cookies and cakes for our friends and relatives when they come over to visit. And as a child, the only reason you love Eid is because you received green envelopes filled with money ($2, $5, $10, $20, $50 or more) from your elders. That was fun, until it’s your turn to be giving money to little munchkins instead. Haha! Every culture has different traditions for celebrating Eid. Muslims in the US and UK would exchange gifts with friends and relatives and Muslims in South East Asia would give money. Besides the feasts, we also get all dressed up in new clothes and shoes and start our day by going to the mosque to perform Eid prayers and celebrations after.

Speaking of which, I created this bronzy eye makeup look with pink lips for Eid. The sparkle on the lid is just perfect for the occasion, and this look could be paired with any lip color of your desire. Here are the products used:

This year’s Eid is different for me because I’m spending it here in the US instead of being back in Singapore to celebrate it with my family and friends. I sure do miss my parents and my grandma very much! To all my Muslim friends, have a blessed and safe Eid Mubarak! Thanks for reading everyone!XOXO ❤
