For anyone that doesn’t personally know me, my boyfriend and I always dress up as the sun and moon at any event where Above and Beyond is playing. I’m always looking for new makeup ideas since I try to make every rave outfit unique and I was inspired by The Gypsy Shrine’s moon face glitter. I decided to give it a test run on myself and share with my reader’s my version of the glittery moon. In this tutorial, I’ll be using Lunautics Mermaid Tears and Lunautics Moon Dust XL Disco Dreams glitter styled with some iHeartRaves accessories to create a Moon Kitty festival look!
Step 1: Put on your base makeup. I only use eyeliner, foundation, concealer, and eyebrow makeup for my everyday look, so I’m pretty much halfway done from there!
Step 2: Use a glitter liner to create the outline of the moon. You can really use anything you feel comfortable using for this. An optional step is filling it in with blue colored eyeshadow. You don’t have to do this step, but I did it because it helps fill in the blank space, creates more color, and I don’t have to finish my whole container of glitter in one sitting! I am absolutely in love with Colourpop’s Super Shock Shadows, they’re so vibrant and bold!
Step 3: Put on your glitter primer and use finger (or makeup brush) to place glitter inside moon. Put on as much glitter as your heart desires! I covered most of the moon, but you’re still able to see the blue eyeshadow behind it.
Step 4: Add whatever lipstick you feel comfortable with. I am using the Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick ‘Poe’ and layered the Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick in aquamarine with a little bit of glitter in the middle of my lips! I absolutely love the sparkly iridescent look!
Step 5: Add Your Festival Jewels and More Glitter! For this festival look, I used GypsyShrine’s All in One Body Jewel and add Lunautics Moon Dust XL Disco Dreams Face Glitter glitter. All of these items can be found on the iHeartRaves website
Step 6: Accessorize your look! I recommend the iHeartRaves Flower Kitty Ears! Now you’re ready to go out looking fabulous! But don’t forget to set your makeup with setting spray; I stand by Urban Decay’s Setting Spray, my makeup holds for an entire music festival and I never have to reapply any makeup.
And, Presto! You're now a beautiful and sparkly Moon Kitty. If you're inspired by this look, but want to swap the colors, iHeartRaves has a tons of styles and options for festival glitter and face gems!
