Unleashing your Inner Sparkle: Festival Makeup Essentials
Festival seasons or special occasions often bring out the zest in us and make us want to experiment with our regular looks. With the right makeup essentials, one can create a myriad of magnetic looks that drop jaws and turn heads. Glitter, gems, spray-on color, and neon are just a few fun extras that can take your festival look from a mere punch of color to full-on dazzling.
Glitter is a must-have in your festival makeup arsenal. Opt for biodegradable glitter as it’s eco-friendly and equally vibrant. Apply it on your cheekbones, eyelids, or even lips for an entrancing effect. Next, face gems are another festive favorite. Stick them around your eyes or forehead for a mystical aura. If you want to play around with colors, spray-on hair color comes in handy. You can match it or contrast it with your outfit for a captivating regalia. Glow in the dark neon paints under your eyes, on your arms or collarbone will give you that extra ‘oomph’ for night celebrations. Don’t forget to prime your face and set your makeup with a good setting spray to let your sparkle last all day and night.
Razzle-Dazzle Them: Eye-catching Glittery Makeup Techniques
It’s time to get your sparkle on and let your inner glamour queen shine through with these dazzling makeup techniques designed to make heads turn. Whether you’re heading to a music festival, a special event, or simply fancy adding a touch of glam to your everyday look, adding a dash of glitter is the easiest way to amp up your makeup game.
For a stellar look, trace a line of glitter along your eyelashes like an eyeliner for a subtler bling. Special glitter liners make the job easier but if you’re using loose glitter, make sure you have a good glitter primer to hand! A bold lip with a sprinkle of glitter in the centre can make your pout stand out. Pair this with a clean, matte complexion and subtle eyes to let the lips steal the spotlight. Love a smoky eye with a twist? Mixing your eyeshadow with a bit of loose glitter gives a glittery smoky eye effect that’s perfect for a festival or night out.
- For the primary colours of your makeup, stick to neutrals and let the glitter do the talking.
- Use a glitter spray to set your makeup — and add an extra layer of sparkles.
- Don’t forget to remove your glitter carefully at the end of the day to avoid skin irritation. Using a dedicated glitter remover or oil-based makeup remover will ease the process.
Remember, when it comes to glitter, the only rule is that there are no rules. So don’t be afraid to experiment and razzle-dazzle them with your luminous, sparkling looks!
