Festival inspired look

Coachella is kicking off this weekend, and since I'm stuck here in the rainy Pacific Northwest I decided to play dress up and put together my own festival look! I felt so silly yet awesome breaking out my floral fringe kimono and felt wide-brimmed hat while it is so gloomy outside.

I decided on really bronzing up my face and down played my blush more than usual (I'm a blush fiend, hence my blog name). I highlighted the heck out of my cheeks instead to create a really glowy look. I kept the lips neutral with one of my favs, Maybelline's Creamy Matte Lipstick in Daringly Nude.

I also used really warm, neutral brown eye shadows in my crease and a nice metallic copper shadow on my lid. I was going for a more natural, bohemian look, and then I did my winged liner and it turned out WAY more dramatic than I wanted. I don't wear winged liner often so I'm a newbie still and it can get out of control so fast.

So I just went with it and broke out some intense winged eyelashes, the Ardell Curvy #411's to go with it.

Like I've said, I'm not a make up artist and I don't pretend to be. I just really love make up and practicing my "skills."

Here is a look at most of the products I used:

Wet N' Wild Ticket to Brazil bronzer, Hard Candy Tiki bronzer (Highlight), the Balm Hot Mama blush, L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation, Jordana Fabuliner in black, IT Cosmetics gel eyeliner in brown, NYX Micro Brow pencil in Brunette, Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick in Daringly Nude, and a Coastal Scents palette I filled with their single shadows.

I love my Coastal Scents eye shadows! And they were less than a dollar each on sale. Even when they aren't on sale they're still less than $2 for great quality singles. I've labeled the ones I used on my eye, which are shades I use ALL the time. Oatmeal Tan is a great warm, tan transition shade while Barista and Chocolatier are both good for throwing in your crease. New Penny is a nice shimmery copper color for the lid to add a pop of color.

Anyways, I'm basically just super jealous of all you people going to Coachella.

What is your favorite festival look? Going to any festivals this season? Tell me in the comments!
