Beauty | Simple Gradient Liner Festival Look

* Some products used in this look were sent for consideration from the companies.

Full disclaimer: I've never been to a music festival but they always look like so much fun! I'd like to think if I ever went to one, today's look would be something I'd totally rock but let's be real - I'd wear this to the grocery store!



 Let's do this!

  • As always, to start, I moisturized and primed my face with the absolutely amazing Paula's Choice RESIST Renewal Oil Booster. I found that using this before applying my makeup, left my skin GLOWING and looking fresh all day.
  • Next, I applied the L'oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation in 202 with a damp Beauty Blender all over my face, making sure to blend down my neck. I know, I know. I sound like a broken record using the same things over and over again but hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? To conceal, I used the ColourPop No Filter Concealer in Light Neutral under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin and then blended it all in with that same Beauty Blender.
  • I'll get back to my face in a second but let's talk about them eye balls, right? To prime my lids, I used the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and let it set for a few seconds before applying eyeshadow.
  • I wanted to keep the shadows neutral to let the eyeliner pop and went to my trusty ColourPop I Think I Love You Palette for that. I popped Bel Air into the crease for a simple, taupe crease shade and also brought that into the outer v of the eye. Next, I took My Type and popped that into the outer v to deepen it. Lastly, I took Let's Do It into the outer v to give it a little more depth. On the lower lash line, I used My Type with a pencil brush and blended it out. The inner corner is Makeup Geek Chickadee!
  • Moving onto the liner! For a simple back cat eye, I used the Jesse's Girl Liquid Liner in black. For the fun zig zags in the liner, I ended up using my Wolfe FX Hydrocolor Essentials Palette because I don't own any gel or liquid liners in color. Way to go, Noelle! But honestly, this Wolfe palette is amazing and I've found myself using it way more often that I thought I would. I started with a slightly wet super skinny brush (I actually think I used a clean nail art detail brush) and dipped it into the yellow first and started creating random lines towards the inner corner. Then I went into the lime green (with the left over yellow still on the brush) and created a gradient look, continuing with random lines and squiggles. Lastly, I took turquoise and finished the wing with the same lines. Any lines that were too thick or didn't look right, I went back over with the Jesse's Girl Liquid Liner to correct.
  • To finish the eye area, I used the L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara to coat my lashes. Honest to God, you guys, this is my favorite mascara. It makes my lashes curl and pop and look amazing. Holy grail status. For brows, I used the ColourPop Brow Boss Pencil in Dark Brown.
  • Back to the face, to bring some warmth to my face, I used the Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer. I forgot how much I loved this! To contour, I used the Profusion Contour Palette, with the third shade over from the left (I don't think it has a name). I'm super impressed with Profusion and definitely want to try more from them. For blush, I went into my ittse x Love For Lacquer Glambition Quad and used the shades #GirlBoss for blush and Run The World for Highlighter.
  • Lastly for lips, I used ColourPop Lippie Stix in She Bad and then went completely against my comfort zone with some gloss from Glamour Dolls Makeup. It's their Gloss Snob 3.0 in Glass Slipper and - holy cow - I'm obsessed. I'm not a gloss girl at all but their gloss was so smooth and not sticky. I'll definitely be trying it out again!
