I wanted to create a variety of festival make-up looks for my channel to give you guys some inspiration to experiment and get creative for the festival season. I’m going to EDC this year (Electronic Daisy Carnival) and was inspired by the bright colours and the ‘electric sky’ that EDC brings upon us. I attended EDC last year and fell in love with it; the feeling free atmosphere, the music and of course – the outfits and make-up.
For this make-up look, I could’ve used every single colour in my chosen palette which was the legendary Urban Decay ‘electric palette’ and more but I wanted to a look revolved around the greens in the palette as even though I love it somehow I don’t seem to do a lot of green based make-up looks, so wanted to branch out.
I added a bright, gradient green eye and added a nude lip (for convenience at the festival) then went for some traditional festival dots – I didn’t have any UV face paint to hand so for the purpose of this tutorial I used a blue and a yellow from my old greasepaint palette.
Let’s be honest here – no matter how waterproof your mascara is, how well your make-up is applied and how ‘resistant’ your foundation is; the make-up is going to prove difficult to stay 100% in tact due to the non-stop dancing in the sun, drinks being thrown around and most likely forgetting you’ve got a full face of make-up on. Take some inspiration from this make-up look and tailor it to suit you – replace a foundation with some tinted moisturizer with SPF, possibly skip the falsies (unless you’ve got glue with supernatural longevity) and maybe even opt for a lip balm over the gloss. It’s completely up to you though – anything goes at a festival!

I’m in absolute adoration over this make-up look and it’s definitely something similar to what I’ll be sporting at this year’s EDC. What is your ideal festival make-up look? Have you taken any inspiration from this make-up look and are you going to any festivals this summer?
Have an amazing summer regardless, love to live and until next time…
