MUSIC FESTIVAL LIP STAIN

POST + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN

Every year I try to tell you that an orange lip is not only totally wearable, but it’s a must at music festivals! Why you ask? Because it adds a bit of sophistication to the bohemian cutoffs, gladiator sandals, fringe and aviator shades in a way that is bold and gorgeous (and still complementary). So today, I’m breaking it down for you in a protocol that will last all day & night and never lose a kilowatt of brightness. Here’s how:  (more…)

FASHION FRIDAY: BRACELET LAYERING

We’ve all seen the streams of photos on pinterest & instragram of girls showing off their epic bracelet layerings and what can we say? It truly is an art form! Below is a handy dandy guide from our lovely Jaclyn Johnson from Some Notes On Napkins on how to create a super fun arm party of your own! There are a few key components to getting a complimentary combo of metal, color + swagger on your wrist: (more…)

MUSIC FESTIVAL SPOTLIGHT: EVERLASTING EYES

Last week we determined a coral pout is a must when getting your festival on. This week we’re focusing on eyes and the underlying theme is LONGWEAR. Makeup has come a long way in the last few years and new formulas last for hours under the harshest partying conditions. Amen! Your look should look effortless and undone, so pass on powder shadow and go for one of these perfect festival looks:

1. Classic liquid liner (wing optional). Simple + classic choice. Our favorite is
Mark Get in Line Waterproof Liquid Liner in Painted Black because it won’t move
until you take it off. To perfect the shape, watch our lovely Lauren Conrad demonstrate exactly how in our Get Catty video tutorial.

 

2. Cream longwear shadow all over the lids and lashlines for instant drama. Our favorite is Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Steel.

3. Longwear liner on top + bottom lashlines. Effortless and chic option that says you’re there for the bands but your eyes are defined. Our favorite is MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes in Star Black. I had the privilege of doing Roxane Mesquida’s makeup in this shot for the Jerome C. Rousseau S/S 12 campaign out in Joshua Tree and remember thinking that day it would be the perfect makeup for Coachella!

4. Inner rimmed eyes. Yes rimming your inner water line makes them appear a little smaller, but what you give up in size you gain in piercing power and mystery. While kohl and kajal formulas are standard, switch to a longwear liner so it lasts. Our favorite is
NARS Larger Than Life Longwear Liner in Via Veneto.

Which is your favorite?

BAND TOGETHER

Music festivals like SXSW, Coachella + Bonnaroo not only bring out the serious sound, but the serious style as well. We’ve seen more types of braids at these festivals than we even knew existed. Our current favorite is this mamma jamma right here. It’s just a regular braid, but instead of taking 3 equal sized pieces like you do in a normal braid, you just make one piece smaller than the other 2. You can see how one section is smaller in the braid if you look closely at the top photo.

Luckily, Jaclyn Johnson, from the blog somenotesonnapkins.com, was kind enough to lend us her lovely locks. We did 3 of these braids to create a little cluster and tied each of them off with small clear elastics. We think doing a few of these in back makes wearing your hair half up so much more interesting! And since you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of a bazillion people at any given time, you’ll be giving the person behind you something fabulous to look at!

Why it’s great for a music festival: it’s totally texture friendly, so dancing + swinging this hair do everywhere is highly encouraged!
