This festival season, we're singing a brighter, shiner tune. Neon shades, graphic liner and ultra-shimmery eyes are all major makeup trends right now and surprise, surprise — we're completely on board. Electrify your festival makeup in a flash with these show-stopping products!
If you're one for drawing outside the lines and taking risks, graphic liner is the trend for you! Here's how you can step up your classic winged eye for a festival-ready statement.
Start with a light blush base, with City Mini Eyeshadow Palette in Chill Brunch. Then, go in with Tattoo Studio Liquid Ink Liner and trace a sharp cat eye, starting from the top lash line and extending out till you hit the brow bone.
Now, for the second arc. Rest your elbow against the table to ensure the smoothest line as your draw a half moon shape between your natural crease and brow bone. This dramatic curve takes time and precision to perfect, so don't rush it! Once done, let your creativity flow and embellish as you see fit with dots and swirls!
Long-wear Tip: To ensure your graphic lines stay sleek and budge-proof as you dance the night away, prime your eyes with SuperStay 24HR Concealer. A little does a long way and this formula will keep the creases and smudges at bay, so no touch-ups required.
This rainbow eyeshadow look is impossible to resist and, contrary to what you might think, getting that technicolour gradient is easier than it looks!
You want this look to pop right from the start, so start by creating a budge-proof base over your entire eyelid using Facestudio Master Conceal. Don't wait for the concealer to settle, embrace the stickiness - it'll help you bring out the colours in your eyeshadow!
Begin your rainbow eyeshadow look by applying the 'Lemonade Craze' yellow shade from the Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette to the inner corner of your eye. Then apply 'Ice Pop' next to your yellow, blending the colours together slightly for a seamless gradient effect. Rinse and repeat with the bright purple and electric blue hues from the City Mini Eyeshadow Palette in Graffiti Pop. Finally, smoke out your lower lash line with 'Ice Pop'. Down for extra drama? Swipe your lashes with Lash Sensational Mascara for a fuller, fanned look.
Long-wear Tip: This rainbow eye look is a guaranteed head-turner and will look so effortless when paired with a nude lip. Pair this look with SuperStay Ink Crayon for a cream, full pout that lasts for up to 8 hours.
Chrome shades are having a major moment both on and off the runway. Here's how you can get rave-ready with a bit of metallic magic!
Start by priming your eyes with Color Tattoo 24 HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow in 'V.I.P.' Next, use the Lemonade Craze Eye Shadow Palette to create this copper smokey eye look. Using a fluffy blending brush, dust 'Sugar Coated', packing on the colour to really emphasise the crease. Then blend 'Old Fashioned' on the outer corner to add depth and layer on 'Sorbet' to soften the edges. Finally, create a cut crease with Color Tattoo 24 HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow in 'Socialite'.
With jewel-toned eyes, highlighting is key. Up the intensity by spraying a flat brush with Lasting Fix Setting Spray, the dipping it into Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter. This trick transforms the texture of powder shadows, making it look like liquid gold. Use it to highlight your inner corners for vivid metallic shine.
Long-wear Tip: You've got your metallic smokey eye down pat, all you need are bold flawless brows to complete the bronzed goddess look. Instead of fretting over them at the eleventh hour, get well-defined brows with Tattoo Brow 3 Day Gel Tint. This peel-off gel fades evenly over time, letting you alter the intensity of your copper eye look without any drastic changes.
