Get to grips with festival glitz - a makeup tutorial

Updated: Sep 12, 2018

With the festival season well under way, we thought we’d share how we created this awesome glitzy party look.

Festival make-up needs to last all day & night so it’s essential to apply a primer before you put on your base. Choose a long wearing foundation and set with powder. Use a powder blusher and powder brow product as these will last longer as well.

Eyes are the most important feature of the face and, when you’re at the festival, it’s your chance to make them stand out! Big cat eyes are a great way to do this. Apply a liquid gel eyeliner to the top lid of the eye, draw the line so it flicks up towards the end of the eyebrow. This will create a dramatic lifting effect. Follow the same shape with a bold colored eye shadow on your lid for extra accentuated eyes. For more of a cat eye look, use a black kohl pencil in the waterline and blend into the lash line. If you want to be more creative, try using a bright colour on the waterline instead.
