We teamed up with well-known brand Sleek MakeUP to learn some trade secrets on creating this year’s top festival trends; from flawless skin to colourful eyes, here’s what they had to say…
We love colour at Sleek MakeUP and the festival season is the perfect excuse to incorporate it into your make up look. Whether you want to get your eye shadow on fleek or improve your highlighting game, we’ve got some great products to help you nail that perfect summer festival look.
Want to achieve faultless contours in minutes? Whether you prefer cream or powder, we’ve got you covered. Our Face Contour Kit has both contouring and highlighting powders so you can take your contouring from day to night. If you prefer a creamier consistency, our Cream Contour Kit includes 6 different shades that will allow you to create the perfect highlights and contours with just one product.
Dewy skin is all part of the glimmering festival vibe. No matter what the weather, you can achieve an all over glow with our Barekissed Illuminator that is suitable for the face and body. Mix it with your foundation or use it alone to create a gorgeously radiant look.
Packing for a festival is all about ease so that’s why our i-Divine Eyeshadow Palettes are must-haves. Not only do they mean you don’t have to carry around loads of individual pots of shadow but you’ll also be able to create a different look everyday you’re there. Take your pick of the 12 shades and create an endless variety of looks that will definitely make you stand out from the crowd. Our new All The Fun of the Fair i-Divine Palette from our limited edition Whimsical Wonderland Collection is particularly great for festivals as it includes a mix of matte and shimmer punchy pastels to help shake up your look.
Also in our Whimsical Wonderland Collection is our new Sweet Cheeks Gel Blush that will help keep your look fresh and summery. This innovative gel formula comes in a handy tube meaning you can stash it in your bag and use it on-the-go with ease. It’ll give you a lightweight cooling finish that’s ideal for summer, plus it has a gorgeously sweet smell too.
To finish off your classic on-trend summer look, choose from our three Whimsical Wonderland Lip VIP’s. They come in three wonderful fragrances and colours that perfectly capture the essence of summer and will give you the perfect colour pop. Choose from the sweet lavender Big Shot, the charming pink Hot Tottie, or the punchy peach Fancy Pants. All Lip VIP’s have a moisturising semi-matte formula which is highly pigmented and will give your lips a velvety finish.
3 Top Festival Tips from Sleek Make Up artist Olivia Brown:
- A cream blush in a pink or peach shade will instantly perk up your cheeks. Just dab a little onto your fingers and gently tap into the apples of your cheeks to brighten your complexion.
- A sweep of shimmery champagne shadow across the lid is a great way to add some sparkle. Plus, if it is used lightly, it can double up as a cheek highlighter too.
- Tap highlighter on your cheekbones, brow-bone, or anywhere else that the sun would naturally hit your face for a sun-kissed effect that’s gentler than using bronzer. Alternatively, blend it with any lip colour, blush, or eyeshadow to rev up the radiance factor.
