FOTD: Daytime Festival Looks

A & C: Festival season is already well underway, and it’s one of our favourite times of year for fun hair and make up – glitter, dramatic eyes and hair jewellery? Yes please! With Chloe being ever so slightly preggo, she obviously won’t be attending too many crazy festivals – but Annie is heading to Leeds festival and wanted to practice some make up and hair looks, and Chloe can never say no to glitter! So we’ve got a collection of festival inspired posts for you, starting with today’s daytime hair and make up looks. 

 
Chloe’s look:

 I went for a light BB cream for my base (Bourjois 123 CC Cream) as it contains SPF – an essential when you are going to be outside all day, and then set it with a illuminating powder. I used Benefits Hoola to create a slight contour and silver glitter as my highlighter (because that’s a reasonable thing to do at a festival). I then used the two khaki green colours from my Sleek Au Naturel palette to create a simple smokey eye, and the black eye shadow to create a smudged winged liner. I used Maybelline baby lips in Pink Punch to add some hydrating lip colour as this fades evenly so you don’t have to worry if it comes off throughout the day – plus its easy to reapply on the go. Annie then told me I was looking extra Asian today so we added the bindi, another popular festival choice. I’ve never done this before but quite enjoyed it!

For my hair I made Annie curl it loosely, as I prefer to go to a festival with messy hair… it means its not quite so obvious that mess wasn’t the look you were going for! If you go with super straight perfect hair, your bed hair is much more noticeable! I then added some plaits to either side and pinned them away from my face, which is much more comfortable for me when walking around in the sun, no one wants a sweaty fringe!

So I’ve gone for a simple base and eye with a bold long lasting lip. My base is MAC’s prep and prime BB cream because it’s super long lasting but also a fairly light coverage – festival days can be pretty long and the last thing I want is to wear a full face of make up all day. I then used a matte black shadow to create a smudged winged liner – this way if it gets smudged thoughout the day, it’s not super notciable – let’s face it, it’s bound to happen. I used Topshop’s glitter (Chloe I can’t remember what it’s called!) to line under my lower lashes. This is perfect for festivals cause it’s super pigmented and lasts for ages! After a few layers of my False Lash Effect Mascara from Primark, I applied my Sleek Matte Lip Cream in red. This is perfect for a long day because it truly does last for hours. I added a glittery flower too, because if you can’t do this for a festival – when can you!?

Hair was simple. It already had some messy curls in, so I tied half back to create some volume then added some plaits and a cute daisy clip – festival ready!

Make up look: everyday

A: so following Chloe’s make up look, I thought I had better post mine (you can find hers here). Although we are both super pale, we have different skin types so our routine make up is fairly different from one another.

So here’s my super freckly face, I don’t normally look this orange but I’ve just got back from a holiday in 35 degree heat and surprisingly, I don’t tan – I just turn into an Oompa Loompa.

I’ve taken two photos for my make up steps, the first one is what I use on my face and the second is eyes and lips.

So firstly I use a primer, at the moment I’m using benefit’s stay don’t stray. This is really good to use as just a concealer if you’re in a rush (or feeling lazy), and a primer. I use this under my eyes an on my t-zone to help cover those pesky blemishes.
I then use Avon’s corrector palette. This is an amazing product because it has all the concealers you need in one compact. I use the yellow to tone down any redness and the pink and brown to brighten dull areas.
After this, I move onto a bb cream. This is a MODELco one and I bought it from Birchbox a few weeks ago. It’s good for every day use because it isn’t really heavy so doesn’t block pores, but you can build it up really easily if you need to. I use my mac foundation brush to apply.

After the base is applied, I move onto my eyes by using Avon’s glimmerstick diamonds in black ice. This is another good product from Avon, it’s a really pigmented colour and lasts all day. I apply it to my eyelids and then use a liquid liner to add flicks, this one is from a brand called W7 and it’s from a local beauty shop. I’m really particular with liquid liners but I love these as the brush is really stiff and allows to create really fine lines. I then use benefit’s They’re Real mascara. I don’t need to rave about this because we all know how amazing it is, it’s a must have beauty product. After my mascara is dry I add some of the glimmerstick eyeliner pencil along my lower lashes.
I then move onto contouring, using bareMinerals warmth powder. I always pull a stupid face when I contour, a bit like Dori off of Finding Nemo? Because this makes it easier to define your cheekbones. And it’s pretty funny. I use Chella’s Ivory Lace Highlighter on my cheekbones, which I need a lot of at the moment because my skin is so orange (and matches my hair – not cool). I use an e.l.f blusher in rose tea once I’ve finished contouring.

Finally I use bareMinerals Mineral Veil to set my make up and tone down any shiny parts with their Flawless Face brush. I then add a nude lipstick, my favourite at the moment is the Lasting Finish range by Kate Moss for Rimmel in shade 03, Chloe bought me this for my birthday and it’s really long lasting and smells lovely!

We would love some feedback on these features as it isn’t something we have done before, and it’s pretty scary putting a massive picture of our faces on the Internet for all to scrutinise. We are thinking about a going out face of the day post, should we go for it? #twolittleowls
