coral and green eyeshaw festival look

The Trend

Black eyeliner is taking a dramatic turn in 2018, particularly on the festival scene! And strong eyebrows look set to stay. The hot colours for this this year are greens, yellows and reds. Eyeshadow is also nolonger just for above the eyes, try adding using a contrasting colour under the eyes to make your festival look pop.

Make it work

  • Start with the mascara. For that bold festival look we're using Zao's refillable volume and sheathing mascara.
  • Move onto the eye lids and under eyes. hear we're using Zao's refillable eyeshadow in coral rose for a block look above the eyes. And have added Zao's matt aquamarine under the eyes to add extra pop to the look
  • Define the eyebrows with Zao's natural eyebrow powder.
  • For your eyeliner, try tracing it thickly around both lashlines or wing it out at a dramatic angle. It's all about creating graphic shapes.
  • For the lips, try a muted matt lipstick like Zao's pink red or red orange to keep the attention on the eyes.

under eye glitter trend

The Trend
Under eye glitter is the sparkly festival concealer trend we never knew we needed until right about now! So you know right about day 3 of the festival and just 5 hours of sleep down you're starting to run out of 'dewy, fresh faced look' ideas? Fear no more, glitter is at your rescue. A firm trend for 2018 is under eye glitter, and the brighter, and bolder the better!

Make it work
  • Begin the look by doing your eye makeup as you normally would, using a generous amount of concealer under your eyes to lighten the area.
  • Dampen your eyeshadow brush and dust your eyeshadow colour of choice underneath your eye leaving space between the lower lash line and the eye shadow.
  • Eyeshadow colour should correspond to glitter colour choice. Here we have used Zao's refillable eyeshadow in Peacock Blue.
  • Then use EcoGlitterFun Aloe Vera glitter brush, dip into aloe vera glue and start to place the glitter under the eyes. Start with a thicker layer directly under the eyes to add definition and fan out to a lighter layer. Here we are using Aqua Uber Disco Ball from Eco Glitter Fun, with a hint of Candy Floss Glitter to add lightness to the look.
