"Wah, who got time sia?"
Repeat after me: face jewels are your friends. After all, they’re almost as shiny as glitter yet only take half the effort to put on and take off. Using a good eyelash glue, stick these close to your lower lash line and you’re ready to dance. A mix of different sizes and shapes will keep your look interesting.
"OK lah, I'll eat really quickly so I have more time to apply makeup"
Ace this by layering different sizes of glitter. Dab some Vaseline on the high points of your cheeks and using a damp brush, swipe on the finer glitter first. Next, gently tap on the paillettes, concentrating them at the highest point of the cheekbone.
"I'm going to wake up two hours earlier to do my makeup"
A smoky eye just won’t cut it at a festival. Level up your look by adding colour to your brows. Finish with “glitter freckles”—layering on glitter, paillettes and face stickers for the ultimate festival look. Don't forget to add some glitter to your hair as well.
