Festival season has officially arrived, and we’re getting ready to serve you all of the looks! The art and the music that comes with the season’s territory means there’s no limit to what you can do when it comes to your glam! It’s kind of like it’s own version of Halloween; you can transform yourself and really let you fierce flag fly! Well, we’re here to bring you some epic ideas to make your inner festival vibe come alive!
Metallics are one of our festival season staples. They’re a magnificent way to bring some serious drama to your makeup. We love a splash of silver shadow on the inner corners of your eyes or even a metallic gold all over. Baby steps first? Okay, if you insist. Apply your neutral shadows the way you normally would (soft brown in the crease, for example) and use a metallic gold on the ball of your eye instead of a neutral shadow. Finish with mascara and there you have it! You’ve created a fun and escalated look that’s outside your normal realm. If you’re going for a bolder effect, add a touch of gold to an already dark, smokey eye!
Okay…so we totally haven’t told you which products to use. How dare us! One of the leading ladies in makeup, the incomparable Pat McGrath, created a metallic collection that has us absolutely LIVING! The Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis Kit 005 is the one to get. The collection includes a variation of gold, silver and bronze powder and cream shadows that will transform you into a metal maven.
Besides Pat McGrath’s unparalleled collection, be sure to check out MAC Pro for some of our other favorites! They have metal inspired pigments in an array of metallic finishes. MAC pigments in Gold, Silver and Platinum are our titanium treasures.
One last thought. We know, we can’t be stopped! Try adding a touch of metallic shadow (in any shade) to your lips! They look absolutely stunning mixed with a hint of gloss or by themselves for a more matte effect. We can’t wait for you guys to bring festival vibe to life!
