Festival Makeup; Dewy Base & Golden Glitter

By Kate Cronin - 17:08:00



I've been looking forward to creating this look for so long and I absolutely love festival makeup so I've tried my best with this look!
My aim for this look was to have a dewy base which is glowy and have a glitter eye which will give the overall look a summer vibe. The look doesn't scream festivals however with a festival outfit and if you added some glitter then it would look stunning!

I started by using my Miss Sporty Insta Glow Primer which is perfect for a dewy look and I also added some Seventeen Skin Wow Primer to the points in my face where I wanted to be highlighted (cheekbones, nose, cupids bow & chin). The Miss Sporty Primer is the best summer base, highlighted and so suited for a dewy look and the Seventeen highlighting primer gives extra highlight to areas on my face.
I then took my Freedom Pro HD Green Corrector Concealer on my cheeks which I'm quite generous with as I think to cover my redness as much as possible! I take this mainly on my cheeks but add a little bit more to my forehead and nose.

For foundation I'm using my all time favourite L'Oreal Pro Glow Foundation in the shade 202 'Creamy Natural' which I blend in with my Spectrum Beauty Sponge and this gives such a dewy base but with quite a lot of coverage as well.
To conceal and highlight my under eyes I took my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade 1 which I also took on my chine, nose and forehead to highlight. I blended this in with my beauty blender again which looks dewy and natural.

As I'm trying to keep this look dewy I didn't want to use a lot of powder so I used my Technic Colour Correcting Loose Powder and lightly dusted it under my eyes. I didn't put it anywhere else as I didn't want the powder to take away the glow!

Moving onto to contouring, I've taken the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer and used my contour brush to sculpt out my cheekbones which I do quite lightly and I love this shade as it's super blendable and suits my skin tone quite well!
Then to bronze I used my E.L.F Bronzer in 'Golden' which I absolutely love and I feel like I've talked about a lot! This is super natural and I take this under my cheekbones, jaw line and the top of my forehead.

For highlighter I took my classic The Balm Mary Lou Highlighter which is a pearly champagne shade which I think is so suited for festivals as it's super pigmented. And I applied this with my finger and then blended it out with my fan brush for maximum pigment!


Moving onto my eyebrows I started by using my Rimmel Master Shape Brow Pencil to outline my brows and filled them in with my ABH Dipbrow Pomade in 'Blonde'. I didn't use brow gel with this as I went in quite heavy with the brow pomade and it keeps my brows in place very well anyway.
I then carved out my brows with the same concealer as before which is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade 1 which makes your brows look 10x better!!


For the eyes I'm starting by priming by using the same concealer again and I took my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 to keep it in place. So for eyeshadow I took my Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer as a transition shade in my crease which gives a warm toned shadow in your crease and is so easy to blend.
I then took a dark brown matte from my Morphe 35T Palette and used this in my very outer crease and outer third of my eye. And then took a champagne shimmer shade from the 35T again and blended this in my inner corner and to the centre or my eye. I then took a nude transition shade from the Morphe and blended the shimmer in completely and took this lightly in my crease.
I then took the Helen E Fixing Gel and dabbed this in the inner third of my eye to keep my glitter in place. And I packed on the Helen E glitter pigment in the shade 'Sand' which is such a gorgeous golden shade and goes so well with the whole eye look.
To finish off my eye I took the brown matte from the Morphe palette and blended this out on my lower lash line and of course I then used my Mayebelline Lash Sensational Mascara!

For my lips I took my Mac Patent Polish Lip Pencil in 'It's Really Me' and then used the Clinique Glosswear in 'Angel Pink which is such a pretty pinky nude and looks stunning with the whole makeup look.

Here's the final look;


What's your festival makeup look like?
