So I am totally guilty of neglecting my blog recently- Excuses I know but I have been ridiculously busy!
Anyhow last week I went to Wireless Festival in Birmingham and with Festival season in full swing what better to post about than a festival makeup look.
I have only ever been to two festivals and whist I totally dig festival chic I am by no means a pro at this! Porter loo’s are just not my thing.
The first thing I look for in festival makeup is a long wearing foundation after all it needs to withstand sweat, rain or whatever else the English weather decides to throw at you. MacStudio Fix Fluid is perfect for this! Teamed with primer and powder this will last all day without looking to heavy or false.
I am wearing the shade NC37 applied with a damp beauty blender along with my go to primer Smashbox Photo Finish Light and Studio Fix Powder in NC42. Another festival essential for me is my MAC Blot powder which I keep with me to top up throughout the day and mop up any oiliness!
Festivals can be pretty hectic so I like to combine a corrector with a highlighting pen to look wide awake no matter what time it is. I am using Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach an Mac Prep+Prime pen in Bright Forecast applied underneath the eyes and to the tops of the cheeks.
On my eyes I am wearing MAC Scene Eyeshadow all over the lid and used a black gel liner to create a winged effect. To add a bit of sparkle I used a Mac Pigment in a shimmery lilac shade applied with a damp eye shadow brush to my crease. Apologies I don’t know the colour I bought it in Thailand a few years back.
To brighten up the look and give it that festival vibe I used Mac Parfait Amour eye shadow on the lower lash line paired with a waterproof black liner from Urban Decay in the waterline. One thing I do need to invest in is a good eye primer so any recommendations would be appreciated!
For cheeks I went for a naturally flushed look using MAC Pink Swoon blush and soft and gentle highlighter on the cheek bones for an extra glow.
Lips for me have to be natural- All that drinking makes it all too easy to get lipstick on my teeth or round my face. I went for an old favourite MAC Creme D’Nude lipstick topped up with C-Thru Lipglass.
I hope you like this look and enjoyed reading.
