Beauty: Festival Looks Made Easy
You've semi-successfully set up your tent, picked out your outfit and lined your stomach with a bacon and egg roll - so what to do before the good tunes start in the afternoon? Give yourself a killer Splendour beauty look (before you start day drinking, please) with the stuff you've already got in your make up bag. Resident MUA + beauty expert Isabella Iasenzaniro gives you the tips on easy, impactful looks and the perfect second day hair, inspired by the runway.
The look: Starry eyeliner at Anthony Vaccarello
Use: Black, brown or navy kohl pencil
Fun, edgy and a little grunge; this is perfect for the rock star of the group. Skip the mascara to keep things fresh.
The look: Boxer braids at Creatures of the Wind
Use: A tail comb; anti-frizz cream or serum; small hair elastics + a friend (or strong arm muscles).
This is perfect ‘second day hair’ – your locks are feeling a bit greasy from all that dancing around on day one and your tousled festival waves have fallen flat.
Just add anti-frizz cream or serum - it's easier to manipulate your hair into a braid when it's a little oiled (plus it won't come loose) - braid + go - you might need a friend to help you with this.
The look: Glitter at Burberry
Use: Loose glitter - that's it!
The best part about this trend is that it's so easy to achieve and can be as subtle or as crazy as you like.
If you apply this directly after your makeup, it will stick to your base. Avoid over powdering in those areas as it won't stick so well. This will work best when using cream based products, like a cream highlight, as this will have holding power and compliment the glitter beautifully!
The look: Subtle gold at Vionnet FW16
Use: Gold eye shadow or liner.
This trend is for the girl who likes to be effortlessly cool. She doesn't want to look as though she spent too much time doing her makeup.
The best part about this look? You’ve probably already got some gold liner or shadow lying around in your makeup bag; just add a few drops of water to a shadow before applying to enhance the pigment - you want the texture to be like a thick paint.
