Vivid Sydney Festival Makeup Looks
Light up Sydney! VIVID SYDNEY is officially back in 2023 with bigger, brighter and more colourful lights to merry the night along with cutting-edge music and masterpieces on display across the city. Get ready for all the parties, performances and festivities with brightly coloured makeup and shimmering eye shadows!
Whether you are going for a full glam look to steal the night, or maybe something more subtle, you’ll definitely need makeup that will last longer than your party! Here are the Korean makeup products that our BONIIK team is wearing to Vivid Sydney 2023 this year.
Glow from the base
Starting your Korean makeup with a moisturising base is important to ensure that it leaves a long lasting, fresh finish and prevent your makeup from turning ashy or appearing cakey while you are having fun (well, because nobody has time for that!). CLIO Pre-Step Moist Primer is a smooth, collagen-rich makeup primer to prepare your skin for makeup application. Infused with gold flakes that help retain moisture and give a silky-smooth, flawless finish, this primer is perfect for all skin types and pairs well with any kind of foundation, makeup cushion or face powder.
Take your makeup to another level
Take your natural Korean makeup look up to another notch with CLIO Kill Cover The New Founwear Cushion! This matte, lightweight cushion foundation has buildable and blendable texture that you can easily apply to give your skin different levels of coverage based on your needs. With velvety finish that has smudge- and transfer-proof formula, it leaves a long lasting finish while maintaining adequate moisture to your skin. The curve shaped cushion puff that comes with it offers a detailed application for different parts of your face such as the undereye and around your nose.
Oh and did we mention the stylish, sleek-looking case is super handy to carry around in your purse, for those mid-party touchups?
Tip: Need extra cover for those stubborn, uninvited blemishes? Pair your Clio Kill Cover Cushion with CLIO Kill Cover Liquid Concealer for higher coverage levels on blemishes or spots, to perfect your festive makeup looks. To choose the right concealer shade, you can select the same shade as your foundation, or go 1 shade lighter.
Cheeks are better when rosy
Rosy cheeks do not only make you look livelier and more youthful, but they also appear healthier and can definitely enhance your overall festival makeup looks! Add a flush of colour to your cheeks with ROMAND Better Than Cheek; this matte, pressed powder type blush comes in different shades to suit your skin tone and have smooth texture that you can blend together with the rest of your makeup. All you need is a few swipes on the apples of your cheeks and blend well using a fluffy blush brush.
Nothing feels quite as festive as sparkles
No festival makeup is complete without eye shadow! Let your eyes do the talking with PERIPERA All Take Mood Technique Palette. This multi-coloured eyeshadow palette is complete with shimmery, glistening, matte or pearly finishes for depth and dimension. Its soft texture blends seamlessly into your eyelids, and the natural matte colours can be used to keep your look neutral. With a range of shades to choose from, you can also use them as contour or a face blush.
These Peripera eyeshadow palettes do not have too much pigmentation which is perfect for daily use, and if you want to intensify the colours simply spray your eyeshadow brush with your choice of makeup setting spray before dipping it into your eyeshadow palette. You can carefully apply a small amount of primer on your eyelids beforehand to prevent clumping or fading of your eyeshadow colours.
Don’t skip the details
Your makeup is nearly complete, but it can be better with additional details before you show off your final look (with a dance or a twirl, whichever you like). Create delicate brows with PERIPERA Speedy Skinny Brow which mimics the appearance of natural hair and can be drawn in multiple layers to fill your eyebrows effortlessly.
Follow with long lasting, waterproof eyeliner that will last longer than your parties like CLIO Waterproof Brush Liner! This slim, brush-type eyeliner lets you create fine, precise lines and you don’t have to be a master of the winged eyeliner to perfect your eyemakeup look! Also, while you’re on it add a touch of mascara to elongate, volumise and curl your lashes with our favourite CLIO Kill Lash Superproof Mascara.
One swipe for the perfect lips
Did you know that your lips can really transform your looks from ‘meh’ to ‘WHOAH’? Inspired by brightly coloured fruits, ROMAND Juicy Lasting Tint is a new best seller that will give your lips smooth, pigmented and long lasting colour payoff. Despite being pigmented, the texture of this tint feels moisturising and still lightweight enough for easier reapplication and can be mixed and matched with other shades to create your personalized shade!
After all, Vivid Sydney is not complete with vivid-coloured lip tint right? *wink*
Tip: Moisturise your lips with a lip balm before smoothing on any lip makeup, to keep it longer lasting and supple-looking.
Finish it with a setting spray
Finally, it’s time to lock in all the nice colours, make your final look last longer with a flawless finish using CLIO Stay Perfect Makeup Fixer! This lightweight, refreshing makeup sprays forms a smooth later that gently settles into the skin to adhere to your makeup, and prevent smudging or colour-transfer. Once this is done, feel free to add festival glitter makeup on your hair or spray on your favourite glitter body mist!
