Festival season is almost upon us, and with it comes the chance to step out of your beauty comfort zone. From bold colours (think vibrant blues and yellows) to excessive glitter and glossy lids, throw out your usual skincare routine and let yourself have a little fun this summer.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
Glitter dominated the runway this season and it’s forever a mainstay at festivals. You don’t have to go full Giambattista Valli (although that's always encouraged), but applied around your eyes, on your cheekbones or even on your lips, you’ll look suitably disco. Keep loose glitter in place using a liquid highlighter, or go more subtle with a shimmer stick.
There’s a fine line between dewy and greasy, but this blurs where festivals are concerned. Matte is out, so emulate that sun-kissed festival glow with plenty of highlight, lip gloss and eye gloss. Yes, you read that right. Add a glossy top coat to your eyes for a high shine finish.
When it comes to your eyes, the bolder the better. From vibrant blue to pastel pink to bright yellow, anything goes. Sweep one highly-pigmented shade over your lids to create an intense block of colour, or try experimenting with graphic eye liner.
