#AD. This post is in conjunction with Boots UK but all thoughts are my own
Festival season is back and although we don’t need an excuse to wear a bright eyeshadow, I do think that a festival is the perfect opportunity, especially if you want to do something fun but are looking for an alternative to the usual festival sequins and glitter.
You can go all out with multicolored rainbow eyes, but a single bright coloured eye look is my personal favorite of the festival makeup essentials so I thought I would show you my take as it’s one I’ve been wearing for a few years.
As with any makeup look skincare is very important and since festivals are largely spent outdoors a good Factor 50 Sun Cream is essential, I personally have been reaching for UltraSun Face SPF50+.
Onto the makeup itself and I think the Morphy X James Charles palette is perfect for this sort of look as it has a large range of shades and is very pigmented. I went for orange (shade 518) as I think it’s a slightly easier to wear colour but pink, purple and green are also great options. The key to this look is to start by blending the colour into your crease and then really packing on the same colour onto the lid. It’s a technique I often use even with more bronzer/shimmery shades as I think it offers a much cooler effortless look.
To contrast with the bright bold eye, I wanted to keep the rest of my makeup looking quite fresh which is where the NARS Light reflecting Foundation comes in which is beautiful and melts seamlessly into the skin and added a touch of the Revolution Conceal & Hydrate concealer under my eyes.
To add glow and shape back to my face I opted for the Fenty Cheeks Out Cream Bronzer in Macchiato and the Fenty Check Out Cream Blush in Fenty glow. Followed by a little NYX Thick It. Stick It. through my brows and a generous coating of mascara.
Finally, to finish everything off I set the makeup with some Fenty Pro Filt’r Powder, a few sprays of the Urban Decay Vitamin C Setting Spray and swipe of the Fenty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow over my lips.
No festival look is complete without a spritz of dry shampoo and of course I added a wave to my hair.
Have you tried a bright eyeshadow look or are you more of a glitter and sequins festival go-er?
