Festival beauty is a tricky one. You want to experiment and push the boundaries, trying something a little new. But you also don't want anything too heavy. You have to wear it all day and quite frankly spending hours pampering yourself in the morning from your tent means less time shuffling to your favourite tunes.
So here is my favourite festival makeup look that I will be rocking this season, which can be done in a super speedy 30 minutes. Im using all Natural Collection cosmetics, exclusively sold at boots. What I love the most is that every item is £1.99, meaning the whole look can be created for £15.92. BARGAIN!
Step 1 PrepAs I say with every makeup look, always ensure that your face is cleansed, toned and moisturised before applying your base. Doing this will ensure that your makeup holds for longer throughout the day. It also prevents cracking and blotching caused by dry skin. See my ultimate skin prepping post for my favourite pre makeup products.
Using a shadow brush apply Willow to the eye lid and just under the waterline. Following this use a second tapered shadow brush to created a pointed triangle tear using the shade fine silver. Also apply this shadow in the corner of the eyes.
Step 6: Frame the eye: Natural Collection £1.99 Liquid Eye Liner (exclusively instore)Create a defined, feline, dramatic eye using the liquid eye liner. This for me is the trickiest part when doing my makeup. Im not very patient and don't have a very steady hand. But the brush applicator on this product is teeny tiny (the smallest brush I have ever seen on a liquid liner) making it a lot easier to control.
Step 7: Lengthen the lashes: Natural Collection £1.99 Water Guard MascaraThe Natural Collection mascaras are the best I have ever used. They lengthen, volumize and make your lashes that perfect shade of jet black. You only want to wear waterproof at a festival. Lets all be honest the chances of rain are very high and we can all get a little emotional after a drink :D
Step 8: Gloss: Natural Collection £1.99 Tinted Lip BalmI have kept the lips very simple with this look as for me the rule is dramatic eyes or dramatic lip. You can't do the both, without the risk of looking like your in drag makeup. This subtle tinted lip balm adds that glossy finish whilst also being super hydrating for the lips.
The final look!!!!!
