I am back for part two of my festival makeup ideas. Yesterday I attended my first mini festival of the season and let me tell you…it was the greatest way to start the summer. The music was great, vibes were great, even the food was great. And as I was leaving the festival yesterday, which was held at Parc Jean Drapeau for those who are curious, I couldn’t stop thinking about the next time I would be able to glow up my face and body and wear fun jewels on my face again. So what better time to post another article than today, when the feeling about being at a festival is still fresh in my brain.
Before I show you guys the makeup look I created, here is the beautiful Cartia Mallan on Instagram, aka my inspiration for summer makeup for the rest of my eternity. Not only is she talented, but she’s also such a beautiful human being inside and out. Moving on, I really liked what she did with the glitter under her eyes; she used thick and fine glitter, the first half a pretty silver colour and the bottom half a dark pink.
Since this was my first time applying glitter in such quantity under my eyes, I did not want to apply too much because I was worried that it wouldn’t look clean and professional. So I took a light hand to my under eyes with a glitter gel and a precise concealer brush. I know for a fact that when it comes to re-creating this look the second time, I will add a lot more and most likely in a gradient effect.
I bought the glitter from Michael’s, which probably isn’t the greatest for my skin, but honestly it was just so pretty that I couldn’t resist. Moving on, I added a small wing to extend my eyes a bit more, which is the most flattering on me when I apply falsies. Other than falsies, I also wanted to add colour to my face (seeing as the glitter was quite white/silver on my fair skin) so I added a bright red liquid lip and Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer to create more dimension to my face. As for highlighter, it’s a bit difficult to notice it on the pictures but when I re-create this look for a festival I’ll have this summer, I will most likely apply a darker champagne shade since I won’t be as ghostly looking (fingers crossed).
I LOVED creating this look for you guys, and hopefully it gave you a bit of inspiration for the festival season.
Until next time xxx
