Festival season is here! Dust off that flower crown and bring out the glitter cause its time to sparkle and shine while you party down.
We're here today with this super fun, super sparkly galactic festival inspired look. Its fun to create and will have you shining brighter than the sun. Festival looks are always great as you can get really creative and opt for any colour scheme you prefer!
After this has settled we are going to buff some Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation over the face and neck, this is a full coverage, long wear foundation so it'll have your skin glowing in no time. we used our new Bella&Bear Jaguar Angled kabuki to apply this as its perfect for getting right into the contours and crevices of the face for an even finish.
Next, we want to erase any blemishes on the skin so we are taking some Maybelline Age Rewind concealer and using it to disguise any problem areas on the face - dark circles or blemishes for example. We blended this into our foundation seamlessly with our Bella&Bear Ocelot Concealer Brush.
To set that concealer lets go in with a translucent powder. You can apply this all over the face if you prefer a matte look or just on top of your concealer if you prefer a dewy finish. We used some ELF Studio HD Powder and our Bella&Bear Margay Cat brush to target apply it!
Next, we're going to create a strong brow. We're starting by brushing the brow hair into the preferred shape with the spoolie end of our Bella&Bear Iberian Lynx Brow Brush and then we are going to use the brush end to fill in the inner two thirds of the brow with our usual brow product - the Freedom Makeup Brow Pomade.
Then, after cleaning the brush end off with some Daily Brush Cleaner, we are going to fill in the tail of the brow with some Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in 'Endless Purple' for an ombre effect. To set this in place we are also going in with our Bella&Bear Iromote brush and a purple shadow and just topping it off!
Let's work on those festival eyes! We're taking our Bella&Bear Pampas cat brush and a matte mauve transition shade and we are working into the crease of the eye. We used the Makeup Revolution Flawless matte palette for this.
Then, taking our BH Cosmetics Eyes on the 60s palette we are applying a lilac shadow over the lid and up to the crease with our Bella&Bear Bornean Bay Cat brush, making sure to create a V shape on the outer corner of the eye.
After, we are picking up our Bella&Bear Pencil brush and a dark purple shadow and we are working it along the crease of the eye and into the hollow on the inner corner - using a windscreen wiper motion to do this will ensure an even application. You can also bring this down to the lower lashline to balance out the colour.
Because this is a festival look we want it to be out of this world and super sparkly! So, we are taking some white (or silver) highlighter - we used the IHeartMakeup Blushing Hearts in 'Iced Heart' and we pressed it into the centre of the lid for a spotlight effect. You can gently blend this out with your Pampas cat brush if necessary!
To give the eyes some fierce definition lets apply some eyeliner! Taking some ELF Cream Eyeliner and our Bella&Bear Caracal Eyeliner brush (You could also use your Serval Angled Liner Brush) we are creating a thin wing along the top lash line - we want this look to be all about the colour so we have kept the eyeliner thin, but you could make it thicker if you prefer.
Now, lets add some of that sparkle! After applying some glitter fix in a spot just below the lower lashline (you could also use eyelash glue for this), we pressed some chunky glitter on top of the glue with our finger. We opted for silver glitter but you could choose whichever colour you like best!
We then went in with a coat of our fave mascara - Too Faced Better Than Sex - for some super dark lashes. For this look, we want sky high lashes so we also used our Bella&Bear Angled Tweezers to apply a set of fanned out, dramatic falsies. We used the Eylure Exaggerate #141 lashes for this.
We then applied some more glue (glitter fix or lash glue) in small dots to the area above the brows and placed some pretty purple stars on top! You could apply these in any design you like - aren't they so pretty?!
To add some definition and colour to the face we are going to do some light contouring. Taking a matte bronzer - such as Hoola by Benefit - we are using our Bella&Bear Bobcat Brush to gently dust it over the hollows of the cheeks and the temples. We then repeated this but used the same darker purple eye shadow that we used on our eyes, for a whimsical effect!
Now let's decorate that pout. We're using our Bella&Bear Rusty Spotted Cat Lip brush to apply a greige liquid lipstick (Limecrime 'Buffy' Velvetine is great for this), using this brush will give a precise application and even finish. We then applied a little more of that silver glitter to the centre of the bottom lip; you could press this into the lip product or use some more glitter fix to keep it in place.
You can then finish the look by letting your hair wild down and spritzing your face with a setting spray to keep it in place all the party long!
We wanted to add on a wig to make this look super eye catching, so we started preparing the hair by separating it into 2 sections and brushing it through with our Bella&Bear Paddle brush to remove any knots and tangles.
We then created 2 simple braids in the hair, securing with a thin hair band. To keep the hair flat to the head and stop it from creating an un-natural bump in the wig we are securing the braids to the back of the hair with bobbypins, making as flat a surface as possible.
You can then pop on your wig cap and your wig, styling it however you prefer! We sourced this wig here and it is natural looking and oh-so soft!
