Beauty Tutorial | What I'd wear to Coachella

Coachella Makeup 02

It still might be a bit early for us Canadians but with Cochella underway this month, music festival season is creeping its way into our monthly plans. The key here is easy makeup that still has impact, it's easy to get lost among the sea of people but you just never know when someone is around the corner to snap your photo so a little primping sure can't hurt.

Note: This L'Oreal BB Cream (in light) is still a bit too dark for my skin.

Start off your base with a good sunscreen, as you’re likely to spend much of your time outside (some SPF products also act as a great primer) then layer bb cream on top, adding a bit of concealer to areas as needed. 

Apply a light shimmery champagne eye shadow to the lids all the way up to the brow bone for subtle interest and define the top lash line with a stroke of deep brown matte shadow used as liner (bottom liner is optional). To further deepen the look without adding heaviness, tight line between the lashes with a black pencil. Mascara top and bottom lashes heavily. 

A long lasting lip stain with a glossy finish is the key to this look so take your time to paint the edges carefully and make sure you coat the lips evenly. Perk up your complexion with a dusting of coral-pink blush but make sure not to overtake that lip colour.

On a side note, my skin has been acting rebellious lately and I'd probably replace my base product in this look with a heavier coverage bb cream but as it is an article post, we were requested to use easier to find local products.
