Beauty | Festival Make Up | Guest Post

Hi Guys, I'm Lauren and I blog on Cupcakes and Candyfloss Blog.
I love festival fashion and reading about it in magazines because there is always so much hype about what everyone is wearing. Today I have created a make-up look that doesn't require too much effort but looks flawless and can be done in a small amount of time.
I have tried to find products that can be used many times whilst you are there because you don't have space to be carrying around loads of make-up and brushes.
Firstly lets start with a primer, I used Benefits Porefessional to keep my make-up lasting all day, then I put a little of my bb cream onto the back of my hand. If you have a foundation or BB cream that you love and has brilliant coverage wear that, I am only making a suggestion as to what I would wear. Rimmel's 9 in 1 BB cream has a really nice texture and does not have too much of an orange tint. You don't have to wear a foundation or BB cream if you don't want to, but I think it is nice to have a little coverage.
Next it's time for concealer, lets cover any of those pesky little blemishes or any redness the foundation or BB cream hasn't completely covered. I have chosen to use Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer because it has a natural finish and covers anything that needs to be hidden. (If you would like to take a look at a more in depth review of the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, click here, I mentioned it in my June Favourites.)

Finally let's set everything with a powder. I chose to use Rimmel's Clear Complexion Powder because it has technology to prevent breakouts. (You don't want a breakout in the middle of your favourite band now do you?) This powder also controls shine, which I love.
Here's for the exciting part. Eyes. I have chosen to go for a bold eye rather than a statement lip because that is just my preference. With this eye look, I find I don't need to wear a primer, however, if you would like to wear one for reassurance because you have oily eyelids or want your eyeshadow to last all day and night then feel free to put some on now.
I am starting off the look by applying Rimmel's Kate Eyeshadow Stick-Rose Gold all over my lid and along the lower lash line. Then blend it gently with my ring finger, being careful not to harshly drag the skin. (This will prevent premature wrinkles!)
I then put the shade Chopper from Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette on top of the eyeshadow crayon and blended it in with a fluffy brush. Alternatively, if you are on a budget, MUA's Undress Me Too Palette is a perfect dupe (I have compared both palettes here)
Next, I applied a small amount of the shade Busted, also from the Urban Decay pallette, into the crease of my eye. Apply a small amount then blend with this eyeshadow and build on it because you want to make this an intense eyeshadow look.
Time for mascara, I chose to use Maybelline The Falsies mascara because it gives my lashes volume and length. You could opt for a waterproof mascara, as it would keep the curl in your lashes as well as protecting it if you get rained on or cry!

Finally it's time for lips. It's difficult finding something that is going to keep the tint all day without drying out your lips. Just in-case your lips do become dry carry a tube or tub of your favourite lip balm because it will be a life savour, especially when you have really sore lips and you don't want to miss your favourite band whilst popping back to your tent for some lip salve! I personally would wear my current favourite lip duo, (which I will be blogging about very soon) Seventeen's Mirror Shine Lipstick in Belle and Tanya Burr's Lipgloss in Picnic in the Park. It gives a gorgeous tint to the lips whilst moisturising them. Despite having to re-apply it throughout the day, it will keep your lips looking lush!
