FESTIVAL MAKEUP IDEAS (Part One)

Let’s get one thing straight, festival season is quickly approaching and I cannot be any happier (not even exaggerating). It’s like celebrating my birthday 3 more times a year. I’ll be obvious and say that festivals can ruin either your white shoes (like it did mine, RIP) or white clothing because of all the dirty dust from the certain field or land that you’re on. Moving on, this is the first makeup look that I came up with in terms of festival makeup, which means that a definite part two is shortly on its way;

I sat down last week and literally said to myself: “today you’re gonna practice re creating makeup looks for festival season” and very luckily, I came up with this glowy cool-toned alien looking makeup. I can actually say that one of my favourite parts of this look is the dots over each of my eyebrows, it’s such a unique touch. So anyways, when I sat down I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do so I decided to at least start by putting a cool- tone brown in my crease, and it just flowed easily from there. Then came the glitter, which is an older collection from Mac, and the most beautiful loose glitter I’ve ever seen in my life. It actually doesn’t apply like a loose glitter (which is super messy) but instead applies like a pressed glitter and goes on the lid like butter (gross comparison but y’all get my point). I then continued by doing a subtle wing with a coloured gel formula eyeliner from Smashbox, just to give my eyes a bit more dimension. Following that, I applied my favourite false lashes from Quo, and they’re my most-used lashes because of how beautiful and natural-looking they are.

Then comes the fun part…for the little alien dots above my eyebrows, I started with a jumbo eye pencil from NYX in Milk I believe, but seeing as it’s a jumbo pencil the dots were coming up way to big. So I switched it for a regular white Annabelle eyeliner, and was able to create much smaller dots. I wanted to add a fake lip ring so bad using the same eyeliner so I did, but had quite the struggle doing so. Seeing as I applied my lipstick first (obviously) it kept transferring on the WHITE pencil so every time I made one swipe of eyeliner in the desired area, I would wipe the transferred lipstick off, re apply, repeat. But none the less it worked so the 10 minute struggle was worth it.

To finish the entire look off I added a subtle highlight that I ended up layering over and over just to make it a little more opaque, and a dewy fix spray from Nyx to intensify the glow even more.

Just to give you guys an idea of how I decided to proceed with this makeup look once I knew I wanted to do something different…this is the look that I essentially was following by the end, mainly for the dot placements and fake lip ring:
