Blue + Lime; Bright Summer Festival Make-Up

With festival season right around the corner here in the UK, it gives me the perfect excuse to experiment and go crazy with colour, really having fun experimenting with different looks - not that I wouldn't any other day anyway! For the average festival go-er, it's a light BB cream, some waterproof mascara and maybe some tinted lip balm if you're feeling like a fancy pants. I can understand why; the hopefully scorching heat, the non stop dancing and the letting loose and making a complete euphoric fool of yourself is maybe not the time when you think 'is my eyeshadow blended enough?'. However; for a day festival now is the perfect time to really let loose and be a bit wild with your make-up because whenever else are you going to get away with it! Anything goes... 

The term 'festival' make-up to me, gives me so many options it's crazy which I just love being creative so much! I also went for three different lip options to pair with the blue and lime eye make-up, a nude, a bright sky blue and even a deep, dark green. 
The possibilities are endless.

This wee summer festival make-up creation is also in collaboration with an amazing girlie here on Youtube whom has become a really good friend of mine. Her name is Holly Samanthaa and you may recognise her for her bright red ariel like hair, sweet smile and her hardworking vibes.  I absolutely love her make-up that she's created (see below) and the close attention to detail that she's added in; the dots coming from the winged liner and the cute little rhinestones on the inner and outer corner of her eye add that final touch. Can we also take a second to appreciate how awesome her contact lenses are?! Such a cool idea and it's really eye-catching and will be sure to make you stand out from the crowd.

 Uh, she's like a real life ariel-barbie-doll - just beauts! You can check out her video here.
