Festival Makeup

As festival season kicks off my excitement to be sunning it up at Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival is off the scale. So I thought it would be perfect timing to show you the look I will be sporting over the 3 days.
Quick and easy makeup is essential, less preening = more dancing.

Although many british festivals may be soaked rather than sunned, where ever you may be sun protection is vital, so I started by slapping on a load of Origins A Perfect World SPF 35. Next up my one and only brush (Real Techniques Buffing brush) for this look was called into action to buff in Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua in B10. Chanel did a good ol’ job of creating a flawless base, however to amp up the coverage for any spots or under eye circles I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 Fair, and once again buffed it in.

I then ran a little bit of No. 7 Amazing Eyes Pencil in Brown through the brows, to give a little more shape, Cara Delevingne here I come…  
Eye lashes curled (MAC Curlers), I whacked on L’Oreal Telescopic Waterproof to the top lashes only. On the cheeks went Bobbi Brown Sheer Cheek Tint in No. 6 Sheer Pink, this also works well as a lip tint but I decided to just pop on some Burt’s Bees Mango Lip Balm and I was finished.

However, if you can’t go all out at a festival when can you eh? So if I’m feeling fancy I might wear a red lip, in the form of MAC’s Cherry Lip Pencil.

So a quick and easy look and I’m ready to go, however come day 2 or 3 I can’t promise I will bother with all this and a lick of mascara might have to do.
