Festivals of any kind are the perfect time to experiment with your makeup looks and try something new. As Notting Hill Carnival is upon us, we have created four different eye-catching makeup looks inspired by precious gems to make sure you stand out in the crowd.
Green is a colour we usually shy away from but this emerald-inspired look is perfect for festival and carnival season.
- Begin by priming your eyelids with your favourite eyeshadow primer than apply Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in the shade ‘Zodiac’ all over your lid with a flat, synthetic brush.
- Taking the matte green shade of the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette – Brights, blend out the edges, creating a blown-out effect. Apply the same shade underneath your lower lash line to intensify.
- Line both your tightline and your waterline with the deep emerald Daniel Sandler Green Velvet Waterproof Eyeliner.
- Highlight your skin with ‘Enchanted’ from the Kevyn Aucoin Prismagic Highlighting Trio for an out-of-this-world effect and then set everything in place with a mist of Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray all over your complexion.
