Festival Makeup Ideas
Festival season is almost upon us, and with it comes the chance to step out of our beauty comfort zone. From bold colours to excessive glitter and glossy lids, throw out your usual makeup routine and try something new.
All that glitters
Glitter is forever a mainstay at festivals. You don’t have to go full Giambattista Valli (although that's always encouraged), but applied around your eyes, on your cheekbones or even on your lips, you’ll look suitably disco. Keep loose glitter in place using a liquid highlighter like the NARS Illuminator.
There’s a fine line between dewy and greasy, but this blurs where festivals are concerned. Matte is out, so emulate a sun-kissed glow with an illuminating primer, adding highlighter and eye gloss. Yes, you read that right - add a glossy top coat to your eyes for a high-shine finish.
When it comes to your eyes, the bolder the better. From vibrant blue to neon yellow, anything goes. Sweep one highly-pigmented shade over your lids to create a block of colour, or go (slightly) more subtle with bright eye liner. For the most intense colour pay-off, spritz your brush with a setting spray before you apply.
