Festival Face Off – Get The Look

With festival season coming up and photos from Coachella festival in LA all over the internet, Illamasqua HQ are craving long hot summer nights, alfresco dinners and finally leaving our scarves and tights at home.

Key Artist Charlotte from our talented Art Team, created a festival inspired look for ASOS magazine using some of Illamasqua’s brightest, strongest pigments.

Firstly buff Skin Base Foundation in your chosen shade onto the skin. Take a Medium Pencil in Vow to highlight under the brow bone and blend out using Blending Brush 1. Then, using Powder Eye Shadow in Inception mixed with Sealing Gel, apply to brows using an Angled Eye Liner Brush to create a vibrant brow shape.

For the eyes, apply four different Powder Eye Shadows to create the effect. Firstly, using an Eye Shadow Brush, apply Hype on the inner socket crease up to the brow bone. Then apply Pivot to the inner lid and centre. Using Blending Brush 1, blend with Inception and sweep Dance through the socket to blend all the colours.


Using the leftover brow product of Powder Eye Shadow mixed with Sealing Gel, line across the upper lash line and create the small lines under the right eye. Repeat underneath with with Powder Eye Shadow in Dance, again mixed with Sealing Gel. Then line the inner lashes Precision Ink in Abyss. Apply a pair of your favourite Illamasqua False Eye Lashes for added oomph!

Using the heels of your hands, softly apply Cream Blusher in Rude to the apples of the cheeks and highlight with Powder Eye Shadow in Hype. To seal and prevent shine, apply Loose Powder in LP010 (a secret weapon for any make-up artist’s kit).

Mix Medium Pencils in Debonair and Manic onto the lip and enhance with Lipstick in Kontrol. Finally, highlight the centre of the lip and the Cupid’s bow with Liquid Metal in Surge. There you have it – a truly fresh, eye – catching creation for your festival in the forest.
