Zeina fell in love with makeup since her childhood, and what made her fall in love with makeup was her mother, Zeina's mother was always very stylish and always did her own makeup.

When Zeina started her career she tried to work in the Cinema field but it was not easy for an 18-year-old girl to work in such a field, so she started doing makeup for different clients, as well as bridal makeup.

Zeina El Naggar has been in the makeup field for the past 16 years and has now become one of the most talented makeup artists out there.

 

1. What are the latest bridal makeup trends for 2020?

In 2020 makeup will be all about smooth and soft contouring, no more sharpness and all the focus will be on emphasizing the feminine features.

We will also be seeing a lot of metallic highlighters with a glossy finish.

As for the eye makeup, in 2020 brides should go for matt eyeshadows.

And for brides who want to add a pop of color they can use colored eyeliners such as blue or fuchsia, but in my opinion a bride shouldn't use colored eyeliner unless she is sure that this is her style and that it will suit her, I personally prefer a more classical bridal makeup look.

2. How does it feel working with celebrities, and which celebrity would you like to work with?

Working with celebrities has a unique taste and mood.

Celebrities are very familiar with all variant styles of makeup and they are brave to try new things and always keen to see themselves in different makeup perspectives by many makeup artists and this is the fun of this part as it puts me always in a challenging status trying to be creative and inventive.

I hope one day I can do the makeup of HM Queen Rania, as she is my role model.
