Time To Fest Up: Festival Beauty


by IMAGE
21st May 2017

When it comes to beauty, festivals are a?playground for the imagination. Jump outside the everyday, go wild, and embrace a whirlwind of colour and decorative madness, says Aisling O’Grady.?

Eyeliner can do much more than define – it can recreate, add drama and give new meaning to the term ?eye-catching?. The SS17 catwalk trends saw liner experiments abound, whether this was an extreme cat-eye with elongated corners; a strong, thickly lined stripe of colour; or a full surround of the eye and up through the crease in a minimalist take on Edie Sedgwick’s classic look. Experiment with shapes and lines and take advantage of the multi-use pen liners, like Guerlain’s Eyeliner in Noir Eb?ne, using them to draw around the eye and down the cheek – small hearts and flowers are so easy to create and when done by hand, the design is individual to the wearer. Make it your own!

Parting Party

Not only does it hide grown-out roots, but a sprinkling of glitter makes the festival fairies swoon. Mix some In Your Dreams Glitter with a few drops of hair gel and apply, or pick up a bottle of Jerome Russell Hair & Body Glitter Spray, above, for €3.67. ?
