It’s no coincidence that Aquarius was chosen as the signature star sign for the Flower Power hippie era of the late 1960s and early 70s. Born between 20 January and 18 February, Aquarians are known for their free-spirited, independent and highly social nature. They are also rule breakers, trying to revolutionise and improve the world for the better, in sometimes very unconventional ways.
So, if you’re on the hunt for complementary Aquarius makeup looks, we’ve got an unusual but funky festival makeup look for Aquarians to try out for their next music festival outing. Cause, you know, it’s happening soon.
Your skin won’t be the focus of this specific look but, as always, you do want your face to look fresh and naturally radiant. True Match Liquid Foundation from L’Oréal Paris is super-light and loaded with goodness for your skin, including vitamins, wheat germ, and grapefruit extract. Even better, select shades include SPF protection, which is ideal for a day out exposed to the elements.
With this look, your major area of play is your cheekbones over the bridge of your nose. Glitter is in, and so are freckles, so why not combine the two and sparkle all day? Start by applying NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer. Then, using a precision brush – like the NYX Professional Makeup Pro Flat Detail Brush – apply NYX Professional Makeup Beauty Beam Metallic Glitter in big freckle-like dots. Enjoy creative freedom here by randomly dotting your cheekbones, varying the size and shape of the freckles, or going for a geometric-patterned application.
With the glitter in place, keep your eye makeup minimal to avoid drawing attention away from the look’s freckle feature. Your lips can be similarly nude if you want a fresh-faced appearance. Snap up one of the tinted Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms with nourishing protection if this is the case. Alternatively, blend together two shades of lipstick in the same hues as the glitter – like any 2 of the 10 Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink liquid lipsticks – for cheerful multi-coloured lips that will last up to 16 hours.
With this makeup look in place, any Aquarian is sure to feel ready to challenge the conventional and have a great day out. Have fun!
