I feel like Fall is here. The much anticipated Flow Festival (a big, hipster music festival in Helsinki) is now over, it’s cloudy, gets dark quickly outside and the forecast promises rain for most of the week. I do like Fall, but my July was amazing and I don’t like to see the Summer to end. Today I’m typing a casual post and quickly showing you my hair and makeup from last Sunday!

Flow Festival Makeup Inspiration
This was the first time I attended a proper music festival (I think I’ve went to see one band when I was a teen) and I loved it! On Saturday I wore a cliché girly look with lots of pink blush and glitter on my cheeks, but since the Cure was playing on Sunday I wanted to have a more bold, gothic look with some 80’s vibes. I tried to make the look more modern by using only a lip tint and a nude blush. I rarely take my eyeshadow so close to the brow bone, but in this look I did for impact.
The hair I kept very simple, I just let it air dry 75% and used a blow dryer with TangleTeezer’s round brush*. I added some glossy serum and sprayed a little bit of hair spray from a distance.
Tom Ford Traceless Stick Foundation, some Bobbi Brown corrector and NARS Matte concealer, powdered with MAC Prep+Prime powder*. I used a stippling brush for the powder and a wet BeautyBlender* for under eye powder.

How the Makeup Lasted
I could do a whole post about tips for long-lasting makeup and hair for festivals, clubbing, weddings and whatnot. Meanwhile, check out my post for a long-lasting lip color. I think on this rainy Sunday the most important to was to really press products into the skin, tints and liquids that set and finally mist your face with a setting spray.
Some makeup did fade from my inner/outer corner as my eyes watered a lot this weekend. But for this look it added an element of grunge haha. Towards the end I could’ve used an eye gloss on the top and let it all smear, but it didn’t come to my mind. In my bag I carried an eyelash glue, lip tint, lip balm and some blotting paper for touchups, but I only needed reapply lip tint.
I hope you enjoyed this mini post! Sometimes you just have a nice makeup day and want to share the look, you know? Have you gone to any festivals lately? How did you do your beauty routine? x
