    Middle Eastern/Arabian Beauties

    I thought i'd start a thread on Middle Eastern Women, i got this idea from the bollywood beauties thread.

    I'm Middle Eastern (Persian). I also love arabic makeup though I'm not of Arab origin. For singers makeup, I admire is Haifa of course. For the Persian ones, I love shaghayegh or Claudia Lynx as they call her in the US:

    I love Haifa Wehbe's look! I know she's had surgeries done, but I think her doctors did a great job in keeping good proportions.

    Now, Nancy Ajram on the other hand, I think she is a *cute* girl, and she's very charming, I love her voice, but I don't like how some of her procedures turned out. Especially her upper lip. In the video clip, "Ya Salaam" it looks scary fake upon closeup, it doesn't even have natural movement.

    Just thought I'd stop by and say that they all have the most enviable lips(and eyebrows!)!! I love the makeup!!(do a lot of them get their lips done or is it something in their genes?)

    I think it's a combination of both.

    I always find it hard to do the eye MU on my face because I always have trouble getting the darkness and straightness of the lines.

    Yes, I think Deepika is a stunningly gorgeous model. I love that she has a slightly deeper skin tone than that of her peers.

    However, she is not of Middle Eastern descent. Her parents are both Indian.

    I love Elissa's make up too. Nawal's nude lips however are always way too light. She looks washed out. Nunu, I think you're from my part of the neighborhood one of the GCC countries?

    Yes ME women are so beautiful. But in Turkey, because of the whole EU thing, mainstream media has started to reject "typical" Turkish beauty - the more typical middle eastern look dark hair dark eyes - in favour of a fairer complexion.

    I think with the Middle Eastern girls there is a lot of emphasize culturally on making your eyes and eyebrows stand out. That is beacuse the culture is conservative and nudity/sexy cloths is frowned upon, ME women spend time on making their eyes look beautiful. Also, gender roles are much more defined there, so if you're a woman, you're supposed to be very feminin, have beautiful long lashes etc...I'm Persian and lived in Iran for 10 years and been back many times to visit family, so this is based on what I've seen.

    Sorry for hijackig the thread, but I hope I answered the question

    Perfect answer . I'm also Persian (I can second your answer) and i've been to Iran too (not to live, but I visited for 2 or so months). Its all a very conservative culture just like you said, so the emphasis is on the eyes. Its why you hear phrases like "beautiful persian eyes" "beautiful arabic eye makeup" "middle eastern eyes" etc. Especially in Iran, the women have to cover up from head-to-toe and also have to wear a scarf around their hair - and even that can't show.
