Festival season is fast approaching, so I thought now would be a great time to showcase some of the top festival trends I have seen for 2018. If festivals are your thing… keep reading to find out my top festival hair and makeup looks for this summer.

Firstly, festival makeup is one of my favourite looks to do because I can get away with wearing so much glitter! Some of my top looks are shown below.

Smokey eyes and lower lash glitter: When it comes to smokey eyes for festival the more blown out the better. Don’t be afraid to use colour to go for a more dramatic and fun look.

Glitter Eyes: Glitter eyes are my festival go to option. Some of my favourite loose pigments is by Peaches Makeup. Loose pigments are a great way to achieve a subtle shimmer or a more opaque pay off.

In your Dreams chest piece: One Word- ideal. This is such an easy way to accessorise a festival outfit without making a huge effort. The in your dreams adhesive gem designs are eye catching and the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. These are available on Pretty Little Thing.

Braids: When it comes to hairstyles I feel like braids is always a easy option to achieve ‘the festival look’. Some of my favourite styles are below.

Instant Colour: What better way to make a statement and have fun then to play around with colour. Instant colour gel and powders are so versatile. Colourful braids using extensions are a more popular trend and definitely one to make you stand out in a crowd.

Festivals clothes are always a great to showcase your personality whether you want to go for an outfit that is completely out there and wild or a more chilled boho chic vibe.

Tassels and Fringe: Fringe jackets are the ultimate festival accessory. My favourite piece this summer is from River Island in this bright red colour.

Prints & Sequins: Festival-goers like to make a impact. It is the one time to go crazy from your day to day wardrobe. Clashing prints, vibrant colours and blinding sequins = festival attire.

Hats: Fedora hats have been a new trend to festival in recent years especially in hot climates such as the infamous Coachella festival.

I hope this short post gave you some inspiration for your next festival, the most important thing is to have FUN and showcase your personality.

Till next time,

Today I decided to treat myself and go for my first ever facial. I’ve recently been more into skincare as I get older but I never took the plunge to getting a facial… I’ve heard too many horror stories! For this reason I researched multiple clinics for a couple of weeks before making my decision. (Drum roll….) I ended up making the confident decision that Clear Skin Clinic in Sandyford was the clinic for me, with endless glowing reviews and a very detailed social media presence online about their treatments I felt confident.

From entering the premisses today the staff were extremely friendly and we began my consultation. We discussed what were my main worries with my skin and what were the focal points that I wanted to focus on. Following our chat we both agreed that their ‘5 in 1’ facial would be the most beneficial for my skin and the facial I would see the most benefits from. The treatment took an hour and to say I nearly feel asleep is an understatement. The whole experience from start to finish was so relaxing and my therapist was so detailed in explaining to me exactly what was happening at each step of the process.

The facial was such good value for money as I got five treatments in one appointment. A brief breakdown of what this facial includes..

A deep cleanse

LED Light Therapy

Hydration Mask

Two treatments from the following list is included the therapist and you will decide which treatments based on your skin.

Microdermabrasion

Chemical Skin Peel (2-3 days downtime)

Jet Peel

Oxygen Facila

Vitamin infusion

Ultrasound infusion

Pigmentation mask

Extractions

As you can see you are getting a lot of the price. The LED light therapy scares some people but the light helps to stimulate collagen and kill any bacteria and skin activity. The whole package is tailored towards you and your skin.

Overall, I would rate Clear Skin clinic 10/10. If you want to give your skin an extra bit of boost and glow, then this is the facial for you!

Lots of love
