Beauty | Festival Make Up | Guest Post

So todays guest post is brought to you by Lauren, from Tea & Post.


I've always had a slight obsession with make up, causing me to originally start writing my blog. Since then it's developed into mainly being focused on travel. When I saw Lola looking for someone to share a festival beauty look I thought why not. It's been a while since I posted anything like this and I'd quite like to start doing so again! 

For festivals I try to use as minimal make up as possible that has staying power, it saves carrying a huge bag around and having to top up in the day! I also use cheaper products as I wouldn't want to lose any whilst there. I've kept it quite natural looking as most festivals do have face paint provided there. You can always add sticky gems around the eyes or some extra glitter for the evening! The products I used to create this look are:

Maybelline Super Stay 24 Foundation
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealor
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzing Powder
Bourjois Blusher in Rose Ambré
Urban Decay Eye Primer in Sin
Naked 3 Palette (Liar & Blackheart)
Barry M Dazzledust in Bronze
Rimmel Waterproof Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner
Lash Curlers
Clinique High Impact Mascara
Max Factor Lipstick in Pink Brandy 

I decided to use the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Foundation as I find that it blends like a dream, has an SPF 19 and really does last all day. After applying this I covered up any blemishes that still showed through using my Rimmel Concealor. This is possibly my favourite concealor and is perfect for hiding any dark circles under your eyes from you were out late the night before! I used the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzing Powder under my cheekbones, in the corners of my forehead and under my chin before applying the Rose Ambré blusher. I absolutely adore this colour! 

For my eyes I wanted something to make the blue stand out so chose brown tones with a smidge of bronze. I blended the eye primer all over my lid, leaving a little in the corner of my eyes to open them up. I then went over the primer with the eyeshadow Liar from the Naked 3 palette before blending it out. I also applied a little of this shadow underneath my eye. 

Using the same brush I used to apply the primer, I dipped it into the bronze dazzledust before applying to the middle of my lid, continuing to pat it out to the edge and again blending slightly. I'm not wonderful with liquid eyeliner so using a brush I outlined where I wanted it to go using Blackheart, another shadow from the Naked 3 palette. Then I went over it using the waterproof liner. I used my Clinique mascara, which is the only magazine freebie I've ever loved and curled my lashes. Finally I applied the Max Factor lipstick in Pink Brandy which again is a beautiful colour.

I hope you guys like this look! I'm hoping to start reintroducing some more beauty posts onto my blog soon. You can find me over at and also on Twitter ( and instagram (
