Festival Make-Up; EDC Inspired

Leave a Comment

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…

Tarte Amazonian Clay Smokey Shadow Sticks - Review & Giveaway

1 comment

I will first off say that this is going to be a 100% positive review - more of a rave in fact. I got these shadow sticks at Beautycon London back at the end of May and managed to score these beautiful smokey shadow sticks from Tarte for a mere £10! It also seemed to be my lucky day as the lovely Jen from Tarte gifted myself and a few other bloggers with some tarte bits and she gave myself the smokey shadow sticks without realising i'd already purchased them myself earlier on! I don't need duplicates... so of course what better way to use them than to gift one of you lovely readers!

I am trying to find one negative thing about these smokey shadow sticks but I just simply can't! I love them due to their insane pigmentation, the lasting power is top tip top and the colours are beautiful! They can easily be worn alone or as a base under eye-shadow for a more long-lasting, intense effect. The shades I have are 'Rose Gold' & 'Plum' which come in a duo set.

 Make sure to enter, good luck and until next time...

MAC Blue Brown Pigment; Glam

1 comment

I love to feel and look glam, it brings me so much confidence and poise. I've had my eye on a few mac pigments for some time now and have only just started to invest in a couple since receiving a mac gift card for my birthday. I picked up this beautiful pigment called 'blue brown' which is literally what it says in the title - a blue/brown pigment that is absolutely mesmerising

The mac 'blue brown' pigment is definitely one of those make-up products that makes a make-up look  phenomenal in an instant without a lot of hard work over choosing different eye colours and so forth. All you really need with this pigment to make a super glam look nice and easy is a flawless base, highlighted cheekbones, lashes and a glossy lip and you are good to go!

Until next time...
