How to Look Polished Like an Arab Woman

When the media discusses beauty on an international level, the primary focus is often on European and American women, with articles titled “How To Apply Makeup Like a French Girl” clogging up our feeds. However, gorgeous Arab beauties like Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Clooney and the elegant HRH Queen Rania of Jordan prove that our region is certainly not short of natural beauty.

When it comes to her Parisian counterparts, the typical, fashion forward Arab woman sits on the opposite end of the beauty spectrum. While forgoing concealer, displaying disheveled eyebrows, and stepping out with third-day hair are encouraged by the French girl, opting to leave the house sans fards and a spritz of oud isn’t even an option for the polished Arab woman.

Bold, enviable arches and flawlessly contoured cheekbones make the Arab woman a fierce beauty force to be reckoned with. However, it’s not only her brows and cheeks that get honorary mentions: the Arab woman is known for being meticulously groomed from head to toe. It goes without saying that the regional woman emits an undeniable allure that’s hard to ignore.
