Festival Appropriate

Saturday, 25 August 2018

I know that summer is very close to being over now, which means that festival season is coming to an end. Before we say goodbye to another summer season, here's a festival appropriate look for ya. Of course, if you love to wear colourful eyeshadows on the daily - I admire your courageousness. But using what I call 'bolder' eyeshadows isn't something I do often at all. I'd love to play around with more colour, but unsure on what palettes are best - if you know of any insane palettes full of rainbow colours, let me know. This is definitely a look I'd wear to a festival, or an event where throwing glitter and wearing funky outfits was a necessity.

Green is a colour that I rarely use, and if there is a shade in a palette, it's not one I gravitate towards at all. However, I think that the green shade, which is a Mally Evercolour Starlight Waterproof Liner in the shade 'Caribbean Sea' looks gorgeous blended out on my lower lash line. No better excuse than to throw colour all over your face (and eyes) than a festival.
I started with the shade 'Blazing', a true orange shade from the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette, and added a bit of 'Burgundy' from the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy palette through the crease. To create the cut crease, I used the Bourjous Radiance Reveal concealer. I set the concealer on my eyelids with the shade 'Royal' from the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette - that gorgeous metallic, purple colour. These amazing lashes are from Red Cherry and are in the style #43.

Have you been to any festivals this summer? What makeup look did you go for?
