One of my dream destinations is Egypt. This country has so many hidden and most exotic secrets, and to me it is something exciting and of course, breathtaking. When talking about Egypt, we definitely can’t count out the famous, lovely and amazing Cleopatra. For years, I have been in love with her makeup and now over a century later, her style and beauty still live on! One of the most distinguished look from Cleopatra’s eyes is the playful curves. I find them so sexy and alluring. To have a beautiful and flawless makeup like Cleopatra, there is only one rule (well make it two), you must be brave in playing with bold colors and eye-liner. Lots and lots of them. To create those smokey cat-eye look isn’t easy but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. What’s great about this type of makeup is that you can play with pretty much all colors, although blue, gold and purple are among the favorites. I don’t know about you but I’ve always thought Cleopatra = Gold. However, here are some of the looks that I think are amazing.

Who can forget the lovely Elizabeth Taylor in her superb Cleopatra role? For this, a combination of blue + grey blend so beautifully and to add up the dramatic look, you definitely need a Kajal eyeliner, which is the best choice to create intense and cat-eye impression. Brands like Bourjois, Guerlain offer best Kajal liners!

Now that we’ve seen the classic Cleopatra look, how about we move on to a more “modern” and daring ideas?

However, for those who are a bit more down-to-earth and would rather go for subtle yet still seductive, you can definitely go easy on the colors and focus more on the curves. Here are some of the looks that I love, that you can try day or night!

As if you didn’t know already, I’m quite obsessed with this legend and I love pretty much everything about her. To me, Cleopatra is a symbol of womanhood and endless beauty. Not only that, she is also playful and at the same time, strong. I hope one day I will be able to visit her beautiful land and who knows maybe I will get lucky and get my make up done there! Anything about Cleopatra, I’m always up for it! Dresses, makeup, and even Cleopatra slot games!

So what do you think ladies, you think you’re ready to claim your inner-Cleopatra with me?
