Festival season is well and truly upon us! When it come to field days and fun in the sun, long lasting makeup is key. After all, we’re just having too much fun to be topping up our makeup! Luckily, our Assistant Makeup and Trend Artist, Lauren Hogsden talks us through her top tips for helping your makeup withstand the mud, heat and your favourite dancing beats. Over to you Lauren…
Tip 1 – Prime
“By using a good primer, you can achieve maximum hold from your foundation! Let’s beat the heat with POREfessional primer. It instantly smooths and refines the skin surface and absorbs excess oil whilst locking down your makeup.
Opt for a foundation with an SPF protecting you from harmful UV rays that can result in sun damage leaving the skin surface rough and red! “Not such a good look.”
Hello flawless oxygen wow is an oil-free foundation which captures, maintains and develops the water reserves within your skin, keeping the skin looking and feeling hydrated. With an SPF of 25PA+++ you’ll be protected as well as perfected!
Tip 3 – Set
Gimme Brow is truly browmazing and one of my personal favourites… No fuss, fully defined brows in seconds!!! Gimme brow is a (smudge proof) micro-fibre gel that mimics the appearance of real hair. Never underestimate the power of the brow!!
Tip 5 – Long Lasting Lashes
They’re Real! mascara is a long-wearing formula that helps prevent the dreaded smudging of mascara around the eyes.
Apply by positioning wand horizontally & wiggle brush from side to side base to tip to achieve maximum volume, length & lift. Hold wand vertically & stroke upward to curl & separate.
Colour that’s with you from dusk till dawn!
Lip and cheek stains are ideal for festivals as they have true staying power! Liquid formulas can sit on the skin for a real flush of colour. The more tint you apply the deeper and more intense the colour becomes. Why not have a little fun with your tints by adding dots of colour to make pretty flowers patterns. Then use they’re real! push up liner in beyond blue to create the finishing stem!
Tip 6 – Smell Divine
Bathina body mist will keep you smelling delicious from head-to-toe (you can even use it in your hair) keeping your long locks smelling gorgeous too.
So my lovely ladies, put your hands in the air and party like you just don’t care!”
