Festival Makeup: Bold Blue & Orange

Music festivals are all about enjoying good music, in good company...while wearing some seriously awesome outfits and rocking some equally awesome makeup! I must admit, I like bold makeup, and I've been known to wear it in public more often than most, but I realize not everyone feels comfortable with doing that. But a music festival definitely feels like the right time to let your inhibitions go and try those crazy makeup looks you're normally too shy to try at home! Why not?

So here's my festival makeup look, created with some fabulous products from Teeez Cosmetics - an amazing brand that I have fallen in love with in the past number of months. And as it turns out, they have some incredible high-pigment products that are exactly what I was hoping for to create this look. You know I'm a cat-eye kind of girl, so I didn't stray entirely from that, but decided to take it a step further and extend the eyeliner into the inner corner of my eyes, and down around the lower lash line. Definitely more dramatic than my usual look. And while I usually stick to the rule of only one bold product on my face (a choice between eyes or lips), for a festival look I figured what the hell, let's go all-out-bold with my pout too! Lots more details on the products I used below, so keep on reading...

I love a good lip duo. The option to be able to switch between matte and glossy is always welcomed. Usually I'm more of a matte lipstick girl, but on occasion it's nice to have the option to switch it up! The colour pay-off on this Sealed With a Kiss LipDuo in Vintage Orange, for both the lipstick and lip lacquer, is fantastic. If you read my beauty post from 2 weeks ago, you know that I love orange lipsticks for summer beauty, and the colour and vibrancy of this one makes it a new favourite. In the photos above, I'm only wearing the lipstick end, but the lip lacquer adds a nice shine should you choose to apply it over top. Not sure you can rock this shade any day? Festival season sure is the right time to rock it!

You know when you try on some makeup product on for the first time, and you're actually floored by how fantastic it is? This is one of those products. Teeez' claim of intense colour pay-off is not kidding around, this stuff is insane! The liquid eyeliner applies beautifully smooth, and the Electric Aqua hue is so bold and stunning. I think the final look photos above really say it all. This stuff stays on like no other either - using my micellar solution, it definitely took some work to get off, which while some might be concerned, I see it as a sign that this liner won't smudge or come off all day/night! Exactly what you want with back-to-back festival shows.

Festival season is a great time to play around with your makeup application and try something new. While you know I usually go with a liquid liner cat-eye, I thought I'd have a little more fun with this and extend the cat-eye to my inner corner and below the eye. It's definitely a bold look, but for festival season, why not?

This restorative formula was made to give you fuller and stronger lashes. Who doesn't want that? It's a bit too early to say if I have stronger lashes, but the brush and the formula definitely deliver fuller lashes! I'm not usually a bit fan of thin, short spiny bristle-brushes - I usually go for the bushier brushes - but I must say I'm impressed with how this one performs. It's especially good for keeping out the clumps.

If you're looking for a mascara that will last during festival season, this formula is particularly well-suited. It's made to protect your lashes against high humidity, and is water resistant. Good for long days in the sweltering sun!

Heading to a festival this summer? You can find all these festival-ready goodies exclusively at The Bay or!

Happy Styling! xo
