Festival makeup with Natural Collections!*


I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that we are now in July! How quickly has the time gone?! It's crazy to think that we are over half way through the year. This week I attended a 'Christmas in July' event in London which made me feel more festive than I probably should be feeling right now! 

Now we are in July, it means festival season is only around the corner! With Glastonbury starting the festivities off right, there are lots more festivals to follow which are super exciting. Looking at all of the different festival fashion is probable one of my favourite things to do. I wish I could look so fabulous in a pair of wellies. When considering festival makeup, it's always handy to have products that can be used quickly, but also can give an effortless festival look. Natural Collection are just one of the brands that offer the variety and versatility of products within their collections. Natural Collection's products are also all priced at £1.99 so are perfect to take with you to a festival, and in my opinion they are great quality products too! 


Step by Step guide to festival makeup

1) Apply your favourite tinted moisturiser for a soft, youthful glow, then apply concealer to conceal any imperfections. (I am using Natural Collections tinted moisturiser in Natural and the Cover up Stick in Fair) I then tapped it into my skin using my Spectrum blending sponge. 





2) Set your makeup in place using a powder! (I am using the Natural Collections Pressed Powder in Natural) Using a powder helps to mattify your face which is essential for the long day's that comes with festival season!


3) Lock in lashes with your favourite waterproof mascara. Using waterproof mascara ensures that your lashes will look fabulous all day, come rain or shine! (I am using the Natural Collections Waterguard mascara in black) I love this mascara as it really holds the curl of the lashes well! So would be perfect for wearing throughout the day and night!





4) Fill in your brows! (I used the Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil in shade number 2) This is the perfect brow product as it is seriously, as the name suggests, Goof proof! Stupidly, I didn't take a picture of this step! But imagine me tongue out applying the product!

5) Finally, keep lips low maintenance with a tinted lip balm. (I am using the Natural Collection Lip Balm in Caribbean Crush) Using a lip balm is so much easier than worrying about a full on lipliner/lipstick duo. Plus you can reapply without a mirror! Double bonus! 



This is my final look! I love how natural and effortless it looks. The only thing I am missing is a boho braided headband. You can totally add some winged liner or a deeper lip if you want to vamp up the look a little bit. 



I hope you enjoyed this blogpost, I enjoyed creating the look and love that I am rediscovering some of my favourite NC products that I loved back in the day! As I mentioned above, every product is £1.99 so is perfect if you are wanting to experiment with a look or just want to buy products that are affordable but great quality. 

Let me know if you have tried any NC products in the comments!
Have a lovely rest of your day! 
lots of love,

  3. This is a lovely, barely-there natural look! I've used Natural Collection blushers before but I've never picked up a foundation! After seeing your look, I think I'll definitely pop in to my local store and pick one up - it looks fab! 💞

      Their tinted moisturisers are amazing! I use it whenever I want to have a really natural down day! Their powders are amazing too! I just love using their products as it brings me back to my high school days where all I would use where Natural Collection products!

      Thanks again for the lovely comment 💜

  5. I miss buying from Natural Collection, I remember back in the days I really used to like them. I still use their eyeshadow duo in mocha&latte for my brows and their blushes - so cheap and so effective

      I know, I used to always go to NC for all of my makeup needs back in the day! Before I really knew how to use makeup their products were the best for practicing with. It's only recently that I have rediscovered them and my love for them have returned!

      Thanks again for the comment.
