The crowds, the atmosphere, the acts you’ve been waiting all year to see... There’s just nothing like the insurmountable buzz of festival season. If there was ever a time to break out of your mundane makeup routine and experiment with your beauty looks, it’s then. And if you’re looking to elevate your usual glitter set-up for something a little cooler, it’s now all about matching your hair to your makeup.
COLOR-MATCH FOR PEAK FESTIVAL BEAUTY
By Maybelle Morgan, May 16, 2018
Throw out the rulebook. Going matchy-matchy became our top beauty priority for SS18 after clocking the Fendi posse backstage. Shoulders up, the models worked punk-meets-fembots vibes, but with a distinctly polished element. The crux of the look remained rooted in the simple but bold color-matching. Bare faces provided the ultimate blank canvas for a thick swoop of teal winged liner, extending from the corner crease of the eye to the brow bone. Sleek, low ponytails then gave way to a razor-sharp side-parting distinguished by a shock of dyed hair falling over an eye. Iconic.
Punk has made a comeback just in time for summer, with ASOS Insider Lesley as your dedicated poster girl. On the face: strong brows + clean, buffed skin. Then, the most feline cat-eye liner sharpened up into electric-blue needle-points. And talk about throwback... Witness the return of the faux-hawk, with Lesley scraping up the sides of her hair into the crown of her head and securing with pins. Cobalt semi-permanent dye combed through the slicked parts of the ‘do amps up the wow-factor and frames the face for that eye-catching side profile.
