eBeauty - Festival makeup on a budget

Hey everyone and welcome back to this week’s eBeauty Blog.

With festivals such as Longitude and EP only weeks away this week’s topic will have you Festival ready and won’t break the bank!

Here’s some products, tips and tricks to show how you that even without a pro makeup app, you can still achieve a Coachella worthy makeup look under €5 with all products purchased from Penneys.


Face Gems

Face gems just scream Festival to me. These are €3.50 from Penneys and come in blue, pink and plain silver. Not only are they to die for and so affordable they are also so easy to apply. They come with a guide on where to place them and already have adhesive on them so you basically just pop them on like a sticker.

If you feel like all these gems might be a bit much for your look, you can use either the teardrop or the headpiece separately to create a more subtle glam look.


Again, when I think of festivals and summer concerts glitter immediately pops into my head.

Using Penneys’ biodegradable glitter (€2.50 a pack) that comes in so many different colours along with the face glue (€2.50), you can apply this glitter all over the chest, arms, hairline and the face.

This is the perfect solution to last minute festival plans to shake up your everyday makeup look.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s feature and find some of my tips and tricks useful for any upcoming festivals you have this summer.
