Festival Makeup Look


Hey everyone!

So if you know me at all, you know that festival season means only ONE thing to me: COLOURFUL MAKEUP! Especially on the eyes I really like to go crazy when I'm headed to a festival. Here's my take on a colourful makeup look if you want to step out of your comfort zone.

This year especially I was super excited to do a festival look for the blog, as I only recently got my hands on the Urban Decay Electric eyeshadow palette. I bought it secondhand on Depop, the sweetest girl sold it for about £8 which was so generous and I couldn't believe it! I was always hesitant to spend a lot of money on a palette like this, but considering this still looked really good and barely touched, for that price, I knew I had to get it. Let's go crazy with this palette today.

So I'm not doing much with my base, just the regular foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer and blush. Also I've just filled in my eyebrows the same way I always do, so nothing special to mention there either. I'll come back to highlighter after doing my eye makeup, so I know how heavy I should go in with it.

To lay down a good base and to make sure these shades don't go directly on my lid (because they can stain the skin a little bit), I primed my eyes with an eyeshadow primer and started off by applying some neutral shades on the lid. For this step I've dug out my Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette, a palette I used to love so much but hardly ever use anymore. I've used the shade Nudie (second on the first row, pale peach) to neutralise the lid, as well as underneath the lower lash line. I also went in with Pre-Game (first on second row, pale yellow) on the brow bone and inner corners.

Now that the lids are prepped, let's dig into the colourful Urban Decay Electric palette. First I'm going into Thrash (yellowy green shade) and apply this all over the inner half of the lid and into the inner corners. I really pack on this colour with a flat eyeshadow brush. With a fluffier brush I go into Savage (bright neon pink) and apply this on the outer corners and into the crease. Obviously the colours blend into each other and you sort of have to go back and forth with them a few times to make sure they are both visible enough without the one covering the other.

When I'm happy with that, I take my Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Freak. This shade is also in the Electric palette so I just like to lay down that base for the eyeshadow again, simply because I have the pencil laying around anyways so I might as well use it. I apply both of them really hefty on the lower lash line. To soften the edges of that green a little bit I'm going back into Nudie from the Naked Ultimate Basics palette

The only thing that's missing from this eyeshadow look is a bit of shimmer, so I'm dipping into the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Sand Castle & Mint'd Mojito and apply the blue icy shade (Mint'd Mojito) on the inner corners. I also use this as a highlighter today, on a fluffy highlighting brush so it's subtle enough yet still gives that blue shine. I honestly think this duo is very wearable for normal days, the undertone only really becomes more noticeable with really packed on (e.g. as eyeshadow) or when applied wet. 

A coat of my new favourite mascara, the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lash Multi-Effects mascara and I'm done with the eyes. I'm pairing it with quite a nude lipstick, the Guerlain Rouge G in N°02.
