World Cities: Cairo
I was inspired to do a look based on Cairo, Egypt for my World Cities mini-series on Youtube, even before the Revolution that took place there. I was mainly inspired by the archeological sites that Cairo is so famous for, the pyramids and the sphynx, and the golden desert surrounding the area. I wanted to reflect these golden and brown colors of the desert in the eye makeup, and focus on an elongated eyeliner shape, typical for Arab makeup looks. Some Arab women like to wear dramatic looks like these to the elaborate wedding celebrations typical of their culture.
