Although many of us were looking forward to the yearly festival, we recently got the sad news that Coachella has been pushed to October. However, this did not stop Team FEMALE from immersing in the fun aspects of the iconic music festival as our intern, Katherine Thivya showed up to our Zoom meeting in a makeup look inspired by Coachella that she had mastered during a one-one-one beauty session with our editor, Yang Mei Ling, pre-MCO.
Aside from talking about serious stuff, meetings can be made more lively and memorable with a touch of fun. Our intern Katherine knows this all too well as she turned up for our online meeting all dolled up and ready for a pow-wow, inspiring all of us to get down to business and leaving us green with envy with her cool Coachella-inspired makeup!
Want to see and learn how to doll yourself up the boho-meets-rock star way? Here’s a step-by-step guide from our editor, Mei Ling who experimented with the Coachella beauty look on Katherine recently.
First up: get the eyes done. Using the Urban Decay Beauty with an Edge Eyeshadow Palette, Katherine swipes on the Acoustic shade after applying an eye primer to create a solid base and ensure that the following colours she applies will pop. As her main goal is to create a ‘mellow unicorn’ look, she opts for the Punk Rock tone from the palette and applies it on the inner corner of her eyes.
Pleased with the pinkish hue, she reaches out for the Amp shade, which is a turquoise tone, for the outer corner of her eyes – pink and turquoise make for a pretty pairing! To spice things up, she adds on Glamrock, a part silver-part celadon hue on the inner and outer ‘V’ and the centre of her sockets. For extra impact and creative feature, the left side of her upper cheek is sprinkled with some stars!
Using the same Maybelline New York HyperSharp Wing Liquid Liner that she used to line her eyes with, Katherine steadily places her hand on her lower cheek and draws three stars in various sizes on her upper cheek. Lastly, she colours her lips with Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in Firebird, a medium-dark berry shade with a pearl finish, which lends a sensuous appearance.
As for her soft and naturally wavy hair, Katherine puts her trust in Dyson’s Airwrap Styler, which provides precise and powerful styling with no extreme heat. While this versatile beauty tool enables you to do your hair in many ways, from silky straight to wonderful waves, she decides to curl her locks using the styler. All it took was just three minutes to get her mane all twisty and terrific!
It was a pleasant surprise to see how everyone got excited about Katherine’s daring look during our online meeting, that every one of us requested for an extra three minutes to copy her makeup and hair so that we could take a Zoom photo of us looking like we were all set to rock it out at Coachella!
