“The eyes are the window of the soul.” — Shakespeare
Festival eyes illuminate and dance to the rhythm of Coachella—free spirited, alive and self -expressive. Makeup is vivid with sparkling, shimmering-metallic eye shadows and eyeliners. Metallic-gold tattoos adorn the face and body (shoulders, chest, back and legs).
IAMU Collective Metallic Tattoo kits are the vibe at Coachella and can be purchased at amazon.com for $25.00. These temporary tattoos can applied to your face, forehead and body.
They have the look of jewelry—chokers, bracelets, earrings and rings. They can also be worn as statement symbols without the commitment of permanent tattoos. The Premium Egyptian Goddess Metallic Gold Tattoos are waterproof and last from three to five days, depending on your skin type (oily doesn’t last as long). You can also find Festival Flash Tru Tattoos online for $9.95.
For a shimmering combination of tattoos and makeup, I absolutely love the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I apply the extra sparkly creamy metals with my finger for more intensity. It blends beautifully! Oh, yes—it’s my favorite!
Theses shadows have a lot of pigment in mattes, chrome pressed pearls and textured—3D metal. They are talc-free, wear easily and give eyes a lot of pop. You can also create sexy and smoky eyes.
Check out HudaBeuaty on YouTube and Instagram @hudabeauty and @shophudabeauty for tutorials to see different ways for blending these lovely hues. This palette is perfect for festival goers.
I purchased my Huda Rose Gold palette on hudabeauty.com which came all the way from Dubai. You can also buy the Rose Gold Palette at Sephora. The cost is $65.00. I like using it on my models for photo shoots as the lights pick up the burst of shimmering eyeshadow in an inexplicable way. Try it and let me know what you think.
Before you head out to Coachella, put your hair in a festival, double bun or trendy Dutch braid (braids are durable, keep you cool, and last for days). Then, pour some heavy glitter in a two-inch section on your part line. Have fun—get creative!
Accessorize your face and body with metallic tattoos. Then, let your eyelids come alive with sparkling shimmers as you depart on the festival-fantasy journey of your life.
