Reckless Makeup Survival Kit for Festivals 2021!

Reckless Makeup Survival Kit for Festivals 2021!

Now that the UK is completely open and festivals have officially started to go ahead, we’re thrilled to provide you with the best compact beauty that will have you SERVING looks this year 💁. Whether it be bold eye makeup or a sexy lip to make you stand out from the crowd… we’ve got you covered.

How to make the most of our Eye-Luminates:

Reckless eyeshadows are the perfect compact, eco-friendly ‘glitter’ replacement and if you’re short of space, why not experiment with some original ways you can use all the products that made it into your Festival pack.

  • Eyeshadow

You do not want to be overpacking with all of your makeup brushes, etc. So our advice is to stick to makeup that can be applied with just your fingers (and maybe a beauty blender for the face). P.S. Using a finger instead of a brush is a great form of wrinkle prevention; hands are cleaner than any tools you use and you pull less on the skin🤗

  • Eyeliner

One of our favourite ways to make eyes pop is to use bold eyeshadows to create a coloured liner effect. Simply use an angled eyeliner brush and slightly dampen it so that the shadow sticks more precisely and get that metallic, bright eyeliner effect that everyone is raving about! Here we’ve used ‘Extravert’ to make our green-eyed babe ready to go out-out.

  • Highlight

At Reckless Cosmetics, we love to experiment and so many of our Eye-Luminate shades are perfect substitutes for highlighter when you want to be a little more dramatic from the average warm glow. We’ve used shades ‘Dreamer’ for a cool white/ lilac tone, and ‘Sassy’ for a pinker glow. This is perfect for festivals where exciting makeup designs often take centre stage on an outfit. Embrace change and break away from your go-to everyday looks, because who's to say you can’t do this at home too?!

  • Face ‘glitter’

Our products get their shimmer from a sustainable product called Mica - it gives that beautiful glittery effect, without the use of plastics on your face (or into the environment!)  To use, simply use a damp brush and paint, dab and stencil festival patterns to your heart's content.


Lip Lights:

For festivals, bringing with you a small number of versatile pieces of makeup is key to making you look fresh and imaginative without breaking your back (or your bank). 

We don’t need to tell you how to wear lipstick, but you should check out our amazing range of bright and beautiful shades. The best cruelty-free + Vegan lipstick in town!


P.S. We love using it as a blush when you’re trying to make your makeup bag as light as possible - you’ll want to save space in your bag so it’s lighter to lug over those (hopefully not) muddy UK fields! 😅
