Brandy Melville Cardigan, Guess Top (Old), Love Culture ShortsWith summer finally here, we are all able to enjoy our favourite outdoor activities. Whether it be hiking, biking, swimming...there are endless activities we can take part in enjoying for the next few months while we have warm weather... this includes you music lovers! Summer screams festivals and outdoor music events. But what is necessarily appropriate to wear... and what kind of makeup will stay on throughout the hot and sweaty day? And what about hair, how will you do yours to be festival ready?
Covergirl, Olay Fresh Effects, and Herbal Essences have teamed up with MuchMusic to share with you all their DIY, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle tips at turn-it-up.ca! Myself, and some of the other Beauty United bloggers were given the opportunity to create our ideal summer festival beauty looks with a few of their products!
My ideal festival style look would be something overall comfy and easy to move in, with some trendy beaded accessories and sandals for the hot weather. If the festival takes place into the evening when it gets a little cooler, I'd throw on a thin oversized sweater, or sunnies if it will be taking place during the hot afternoon.
For my hair, I'd typically just do something simple that I am comfortable will last throughout the day. I love to create natural looking waves using a straightener, and gave them a beachy look using Herbal Essences Naked Flexible Hold Spritzer, which will also keep the waves in place all day. I used a teeny bit of Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo to freshen up my roots, and Herbal Essences Naked Sheer Shine Mist to freshen up the scent and give my hair a bit of it's shine back.
For my beauty look, I started off with Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream to moisturize my skin and give it a bit of protection from the sun. It has little to no coverage so I applied my regular foundation over it very lightly so it doesn't look too cakey at the end of the day. I applied Covergirl truMagic The Sunkisser Bronzer in 110 with my fingers to my temples, outer forehead, cheekbones. It was pretty foolproof and easy to apply, blend, and didn't dry fast. I used Covergirl's ink it! Eye Pencil in Aquamarine Ink and a black liner to line the lids of my eyes. The colour is very cute for summer, but this liner did hurt my sensitive eyes while applying. I finished off the face with a few Covergirl eyeshadows and Bombshell Volume Mascara.
I almost forgot... the lips! I gave my lips a subtle but sparkly pink tint with Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Blush Twist. I have been loving how light the tint is on this balm but also appreciate that is is buildable with a few more coats.
At the end of the day, you can't forget to take your makeup off no matter how tired and drained you are from your earlier activities! I used Olay Fresh Effects Everything Off Make-Up Removal Cloths to remove my foundation and bronzer before a good night's sleep.
