Going to a festival this summer? We’ve tested out the best festival makeup to try it out and see how it will hold up.
Festivals are a great time to test out new makeup looks, especially bold, colourful and fun looks that you probably wouldn’t wear every day. With festival season in full swing, we tested out some festival makeup from Superdrug to get us ready for the festivals we’ve got booked this summer.
Best of all? Students can get a 10% student discount at Superdrug in-store, so you won’t have to pay full price for all of the items we tried and tested out!
If you want to try out this bold blue eyeshadow look for yourself, here’s what you’ll need and how to do it.

Start by priming your eyelids with the e.l.f. Cosmetics primer. Simply apply a bit on your finger and rub it straight into your eyelids, being careful to only use a small amount.
Once your eyelids are primed, use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to apply the white shade in the Reloaded Marvellous Mattes Neon Eyeshadow Palette to your eyelids being careful to blend it evenly. Using the same brush apply the dark blue shade into your crease blending it out to the sides.
Next, use the darker purple shade and blend it into your inner corner and crease, mixing with the blue colour you’ve just applied. Add the white colour to the centre of your eyelids and pack the deep colour around the edges of your eyes.
Using the Ultra Contour Palette, use a flat brush to add the highlighter shade to the centre of your eyelids, over the existing white eyeshadow.
Using the shade Bright Babe from the Graphic Artist Palette mix with water and apply to your eyeliner using the applicator that comes with the palette.
Using a fluffy blending brush, apply and blend the L’oreal Skin Paradise Tinted Water-Cream all over your face.
Apply Collection concealer to your face using the product applicator and buff into the skin with a foundation brush.
Using the Reloaded Marvellous Mattes Neon Eyeshadow palette and a flat brush add dark blue, light blue and white shades to your lower lash line and the corner of your eye and blend with a fluffy brush.
Use the contour palette to add bronzer and contour to your cheekbones, jawline, forehead and nose.
Using a sponge from the Superdrug Makeup Tools kit add some highlighter from the contour kit to your cheekbones and nose. Use a fluffy brush to add some highlighter to the inner corner of your eyelid.
Finish off your eye look with the MUA amplify mascara.
Apply Maybelline lip gloss and spray Revolution fixing spray all over your face to help keep your makeup on all day!
