A warm, dreamy makeup look that I wore for a recent photoshoot – perfect for upcoming Valentine’s Day or any date night 🙂 Feminine with a touch of smoulder. I’ve selected products that picture beautifully so this one is 100% photo friendly 😉

Nicole Anderes says:

Hi Karima! I have a question about the texture of the different Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks. I have Miranda May and I really like the color but i have a hard time applying it. I really want to order secret selma, but as I live in Switzerland I can`t try it first, I am a little hesitant to buy and then not like it. What are your thoughts on her Hot Lips vs Matte Revolution lipsticks?? All the best! and I love the look here! <3

Amber Dress says:

You look absolutely gorgeous in this tutorial !!!!

Priyar rajbhar says:

hey you are already pretty you don’t need makeup

iloveRainbow100 says:

loved it!!

crl62089 says:

Hi Karima! I have a foundation question for you. My neck is uber tan compared to my body (apparently I must forget sunscreen there) and matches GA luminous silk 6, but my body is a light olive so no foundations match it and then look awkwardly light with respect to my neck. Do you think it’s better to just match the back of my neck since I’m wearing sweaters anyway? At least then my undertone looks normal….struggle. I’ve been trying to rock my pale (though it doesn’t match any foundations) and not tan but alas I have failed.

Nia Lin says:

So very pretty darling! Hope you’ve been having a wonderful start to the new year. Thank you very much for showing us such a pretty, yet easily achievable look. Your talent is always appreciated my dear. Wishing you a joyous week!

Tamar Telliyan says:

you are my favourite!!!!

Flee F says:

omg, beautylish is so right to choose Karima. BEAUTIFUL. By the way I appreciate the way you treat you lovely bushy brows.

Catho Beckers says:

I love the way you approach your makeup, it’s a little more realistic for me personally 🙂 Always enjoy your videos Karima, thank you! Are you planning on doing a 2016 favorites roundup? Maybe not because you did the ride or die tag not to long ago … But I would watch and really enjoy that video if you did decide to make it! xxx

Sammy VR says:

Love this!! So much classier than the ‘cake faced’ looks and comes out so much more beautiful!

Zahrah Aliyah says:

Ugh, so stunning!
