Time to up your makeup game this Raya with the help of these Insta-famous beauty influencers

Hari Raya is just around the corner (less than two weeks, to be precise) and if you haven't gotten down to prepping for the celebrations, fret not! We've got a festive essentials checklist for your occasion-ready look—from the best threads to deck yourself in to the latest lip launches to wear for a picture-perfect beauty shot.

In case you need more inspiration on festive makeup looks to match your ensemble, scroll down for a variety of makeup looks by these talented crop of Muslim beauty influencers (also walking proof that there are more ways than one to jazz up your hijab, headscarf and turban.)


The 23-year old London-based beauty influencer is one to follow for her versatile makeup looks that run the gamut from wedding-ready (she did her own wedding makeup!) to statement-making (and perfect for Eid).



Birmingham-based influencer Habiba Da Silva isn't just your average makeup lover and YouTuber—she's also an entrepreneur who has a sellout hijab label (launched when she was only 20 years old) catered for all kinds of skin tones. Follow her YouTube for ways to wear your hijab and a charming, Eid-ready makeup look.



We love beauty blogger and journalist Hani Hanss' all-encompassing beauty-related feed that covers everything from skincare favourites to snazzy makeup looks. More on her blog for fashion and lifestyle content as well as makeup swatches and reviews.



Subscribe to Toronto-based beauty vlogger Aysha Harun's YouTube channel if you're looking for makeup tutorials for any and every occasion, food recipes and meal preps and more. Our recent favourite is a natural brow tutorial where she demonstrates how to create a feathery brow look with a few handy tips.



Another Muslim beauty influencer and entrepreneur to keep an eye out for is Manal Chinutay, who also has her own hijab label Chinutay & Co. at only 27 years old. We love her faux freckle makeup look here, along with her new-mum glow that she's rocking beautifully.



Beauty guru Edna Abdiaziz's highlight game is so strong that it's almost brighter than our future. We're crushing on her head-turning looks, including a smoky teal eye that's made of dreams, a monochromatic pink look and an on-trend, floating crease.



Even if you aren't that into makeup, Sally Ashour's covetable feed is worth a follow for her sepia-toned aesthetic and Parisian-chic #OOTD shots. Here's how you can achieve a natural smoky eye and subtle glimmer for a daytime look.



For a micro-influencer, Jasmine Egal's makeup skills are as impressive as other heavyweights on this list. Looks you should save to your beauty inspo board include this breathtaking metallic lip look, how to rock matte blue eyeshadow, and pulling off a cut crease with so much win.



Want to match your makeup look to your outfit without looking too corny? Hodan Yusuf's IG-worthy looks are what you gotta refer to before heading out of the house, such as this purple-on-purple look and all-blue tutorial.
