This weekend I went to London for Community Festival in Finsbury Park. It was amazing – honestly, I don’t even have words to describe it. It was my first ever festival experience, and is one that I am 100% eager to repeat. I got to see The Wombats (a lifelong dream), Catfish and The Bottlemen (for the second time), The Hunna and Slaves. A day full of good food, lots of alcohol and great company.
I decided to do absolutely crazy, glittery makeup for the day and I am very glad to report that it lasted a full 24 hours with no touch ups whatsoever! Incredible, I know. So I thought I would dedicate a blog post to the look that I did, in case any of you need any makeup inspo for the festival season. Enjoy.
Face: Nivea Post Shave Balm + MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage | One pump of MAC Studio Fix NW10 + one pump of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Shade 2 | Tarte Shape Tape Concealer- Fair | L’Oreal Lumi Magique – Light | Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder – Translucent
Eyes: W7 Get Set | Morphe 35B (for transition shades) | NYX Glitter Primer | NYX Face and Body Glitter (I mixed shades Red, Crystal, Teal, Blue, Violet and Ice) | Gerard Cosmetics Eternal Eyeliner | L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Mascara – Black | No7 Intense Volume Mascara – Black (for bottom lashes) | House Of Lashes – Iconic Falsies
Lips: MAC Dodgy Girl Lipstick (discontinued, sorry!)
Extra cute additional stuff: Festival Face Chunky Glitter – Silver Gal & Unicorn Dust (this is the super chunky glitter on my cheekbones) | PaintGlow Glitter Me Up Fixing Gel (amazing for keeping glitter on all day long) | Naked Illuminated – Luminous (dusted all over my body)
I sincerely apologise for the sheer amount of makeup linked up in this post, but I truly adored this makeup look. It meant I could do crazy, crazy glittery things without feeling or looking weird. Perfect. I hope that this post gave you some inspo to do some creative looks this summer. Let me know of the fun looks you’ve been doing!
Lots and lots of love,
