Queen of the Nile Cleopatra Makeup Tutorial

Hi there! I’ve got a Queen of the Nile Cleopatra Tutorial for you. I used Inglot and NARS for the eyes, but I got very creative for the face. I based my look off of the Inglot Cleopatra Tutorial.

Queen of the Nile Cleopatra Makeup Tutorial

How to Achieve the Look

  1. Apply Inglot 155 to lid.
  2. Using the Goss 6 brush, apply Inglot 345 to the crease, blending upwards onto the browbone.
  3. Using the Goss 6 brush, apply Inglot 473 at the outer crease, blending upwards and inwards a bit.
  4. Using the Goss 5 brush, apply Inglot 338 to the outer crease, blending inwards and upwards.
  5. Line along your upper lash line, lower lash line and waterline with NARS Black Valley. Extend the shape out into a fish tail, leaving the center empty.
  6. Fill in the fish tail with NARS Iskandar. Pat Inglot 155 on top of it.
  7. Highlight under brows and at inner corner with Pixi Fairy Dust. Add mascara. (or use false lashes!)
