FESTIVAL SEASON is well and truly upon us and I have done a very nice thing and compiled my absolute favourite looks from the past year, to provide you with the best inspiration to decorate your gorgeous face.
DISCLAIMER: I’ve created a lot of these looks with bindis as they are an integral part of my culture, and I find them truly beautiful and necessary in promoting an awareness & appreciation of Indian culture. If you do not wish to offend, I suggest replacing these looks with jewels that can EASILY be found at your local arts & craft store and applying them with eyelash glue. Nothing but #love and #appreciation here!

1. COVER THEM BAGS, GURL.
My favourite aesthetic is covering your under eyes with glitter and/or gems. This look is so simple and easy to recreate.

3. GLITTER BROWS ON FLEEK
HOW TO APPLY:
Fill in brows as normal. Then, using a cotton bud, apply a minimal amount of hair/glitter gel through the brow. Dip the same cotton bud into Make Up Store loose glitter so it sticks to the bud, and dab it through eyebrow. Initially the application will be thick and uneven, so even it out by brushing your brows with a dry mascara spool.

4. SOMEWHERE, OVER THE RAINBOW
Add a pop of colour to your outfit with rainbow eyes! Don’t worry if you’re not amazing at makeup, neither am I! The key is to blend those colours girl, BLEND.

Complete your ‘festi’ look with these cute stars! Simply stick them on with eyelash glue and you’re good to go.
The best part about these looks is that you can mix them together! Pair your glitter brows with your starry-eyes, rock that rainbow eye with under-eye gems. TBH, more is more when you’re going to a festival!
