V Festival Makeup Look


Today I thought I'd bring to you my second festival makeup look this week as my first one went up a few days ago. This one is a bit different, with straightened hair, a smaller flower crown and added sequins to make your eyes really stand out. This look was inspired by my L'Oréal Festival Package including the prettiest Quay Australia glasses I've ever seen. For festival makeup the key thing you need to remember is priming and setting your face in order for it to stay on all day long.


To prime I used the Stila One Step Correct primer to even out my skin tone and provide a good base for the rest of my makeup. For foundation I used Estée Lauder Double Wear in Ecru which I'm surprised I've not reviewed yet as I have three bottles of the stuff. To conceal I used the Seventeen Skin Wow Concealer and my usual Nars Creamy Concealer. To powder I again use my trusty Maybelline 24hour powder that's nearly running out and I'm yet to repurchase!


For the eyes I primed them with Benefit's Stay Don't Stray which is an eye primer but has colour to it so it covers veins and discolouration to your lids. I only added a small amount of colour to my lids as the main focus is going to be the glitter so I used my Tartelette in Bloom palette to create a subtle bit of definition. All over the lid I applied 'Charmer' and in the outer v used a mixture of 'Rebel' and 'Jetsetter' and blended it out. For liner I applied the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner which seems to have both its good and bad days but it worked for me on this occasion and looked quite pretty. I applied the Miss Dolly lashes by Esqido which are the softest lashes you'll ever apply and they feel so much nicer than the cheap lashes you can pick up in multi packs. As I have blonde lashes I applied the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara to add a bit more volume.


For the main feature of this look which was the opal glitter underneath the lower lashes, I first lined below the lashes with some glittery eyeliner and the Gallactica liner from Collection Cosmetics. This is because the chunky glitter I applied is round so there were bound to be a few gaps and I didn't want it to be obvious that there was just foundation underneath. I applied some lash glue then I used the In Your Dreams glitter by applying each bit one at a time starting from the inner corner and working my way out. You may have seen from my Snapchat (username laurahadley) that I recorded a video of the light hitting the glitter and it was so pretty as it changed colour depending on where the light hit.

I actually used a different brow product this time - the Nyx Tame and Frame pomade in blonde through most of the brows and in the front of them used a little bit of Benefit Brow Zings to soften them up. I did my usual highlight Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit and used the new L'Oréal Glam Bronze for blush and contour.. For the lips I used by Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Big Bang which is a metallized finish and lasted all day which I was so impressed with. I know this is a more simple festival look but when you've just woken up from an uncomfortable sleep in a tent, the last thing you want to do is spend three hours putting makeup on.
