SEPHORA re­cently in­tro­duced its first ever make-up artist col­lab­o­ra­tion for Hari Raya with celebrity make-up artist Tiar Zainal, who has worked with top celebri­ties like Neelofa, Scha Alyahya and Lisa Suri­hani.

Tiar was al­ready a fan of Sephora even be­fore it was avail­able in Malaysia.

“I started buy­ing and us­ing Sephora prod­ucts around 2005 and I re­mem­ber be­ing fas­ci­nated with their eye­shadow pal­ettes. The colours and the qual­ity of the prod­ucts are re­ally what at­tracted me to the brand,” said Tiar af­ter the launch of Sephora’s Glam­raya event in Kuala Lumpur.

Born in Perak, Tiar was al­ready hon­ing his make-up artistry while in school, help­ing fam­ily mem­bers look beau­ti­ful for wed­dings. The work of this self-taught make-up artist has appeared in edi­to­ri­als of lead­ing lo­cal pub­li­ca­tions.

For the col­lab­o­ra­tion Tiar cre­ated four looks, Edgy Chic, Clas­sic Beauty, Glam­orous Queen and Cool Girl, us­ing only Sephora make-up prod­ucts.

He pre­sented the looks to in­vited guests and me­dia at the event, which was at­tended by lo­cal celebri­ties such as Scha, Liyana Jas­may and De Fam.

The fes­tive themed evening in­cluded in­tri­cately de­signed henna paint­ing by Alena Shukor, cus­tomised name cal­lig­ra­phy on Sephora’s Geo­met­ri­cal Block­buster Pal­ette by Joy Chong and per­son­alised wa­ter­colour painted Hari Raya cards by Atie of “Week­endiminlove.”

Celebrity hi­jab stylist Didiyana Eh­san styled hi­jabs, with tips on pair­ing make-up with match­ing out­fits. She niftily twisted and pinned lay­ers of fab­ric, un­veil­ing var­i­ous hi­jab styles.

“When I was in­vited to be Sephora’s first make-up artist col­lab­o­ra­tor I was very happy and ex­cited. I’m very lucky and truly ap­pre­ci­ate work­ing with Sephora Malaysia,” says Tiar.

“I have been a huge fan of Sephora’s cream lip stain and eye­shadow pal­ettes, and have been us­ing them for awhile now. They are also af­ford­able.”

The Glam­raya Looks he cre­ated will com­ple­ment any Raya cloth­ing, be it tra­di­tional or mod­ern.

For day, he rec­om­mends the Clas­sic Beauty and Edgy Chic looks whereas the Glam­orous Queen and Cool Girl looks are suited for night.

“These looks can be worn by any­one, re­gard­less of eth­nic­ity. Women who are al­ways on the go can wear the Clas­sic Beauty. This is also a look for those who are new to make-up as it’s sim­ple and easy. It uses ba­sic make-up prod­ucts and this look can never go wrong with any at­tire.

“If you are a bit more out­go­ing and ad­ven­tur­ous, Cool Girl would be the look to go for. If you’re fear­less and hip, try the Edgy Chic look. When you’re in the mood for a lit­tle bit of glitz and glam, then be in­spired by the Glam­orous Queen look.

“In our hu­mid weather it’s im­por­tant to use prod­ucts that are oil free and wa­ter­proof. Since we sweat eas­ily make-up tends to wear off af­ter a long day es­pe­cially,” he says.

To en­sure your make-up lasts longer, Tiar says it’s im­por­tant to prep your skin with the ba­sic skin­care rou­tine of cleans­ing, ton­ing and mois­tur­is­ing, be­fore ap­ply­ing your base make-up.

If you’ve got a to­tally hec­tic sched­ule this Raya and time is re­ally pre­cious, then he says, “A fast and easy make-up look only re­quires three prod­ucts, the mas­cara, blush and lip­stick, and you’re good to go!”
