The Coolest Festival Makeup Ever?

UV Festival Makeup from 3ina - 1

I spent what I like to call my "party years" in Belgium, a country that puts on a pretty impressive display when it comes to summer music festivals - the most famous probably being Rock Werchter. This was entirely wasted on me because, I have to be honest, festivals have never really been my thing, even when I was young. I've been to a few in my time... so long as I could get home to my own bed at the end of the night. The camping and the mud? No thanks!

One thing that decidedly is my thing, however, is makeup. And if I'd had some like this in my collection back in those days, I might have been persuaded to go to a couple more festivals, purely to show it off.

The makeup in question is from a new brand called 3ina, who got in touch with me recently to ask if I'd like to try a few pieces from their UV collection. Designed to look neon in regular lighting, which is already pretty cool, the products also glow under UV lights. I was intrigued by the concept, so said yes right away. They sent me three items - the Fluoro Top Coat*, the Fluoro Eye Pencil* and the Fluoro Cream Eyeshadow* in 402 which is a gorgeous hot pink. They also thoughtfully provided a little UV light torch, so I could see the products in all their glory. I did have a few reservations about the quality, as, after all, the emphasis here is on the "fun" element, but I was pleasantly surprised.

The Flouro top coat can be added on top of any nail varnish. It offers a nice gloss with a slight blue cast in normal lighting conditions, and a fabulous glow under UV. You can also achieve this with two coats of top coat on its own. You just have to be careful how you apply this, as the UV light really magnifies any sloppiness around the edges as you can see in the photo below!

The Fluoro Eye Pencil applies just like a regular black kohl eyeliner, but look at what happens under the UV light!

My favourite of the three products is the Fluoro Cream Eyeshadow. It's very soft to apply and looks so effective worn all over the lids. I don't even think you would necessarily need to reserve this for festivals or nightclubs, as I think it would work beautifully on a regular night out if you felt like rocking something a little different. The picture of me wearing the eyeshadow is without UV light, so you can see how vibrant it is in its natural state. If you check out this link you can see how it looks in its full UV glory.

Are you/have you ever been a festival goer? And would you wear this makeup, at festivals or even elsewhere?

  2. This would have been perfect as a festival go-er and makeup lover back in my college days in Holland. Shame that time has long passed now, but great post!

  5. I haven't been a festival goer, but more due to lack of opportunities than anything else. I had my fair share of camping and mud elsewhere and don´t mind it.

  6. Wow, you don't know how long I've been looking for UV nail varnish and make-up that actually works! These products and your photos look amazing! I love going to festivals and I'm off to see The Killers at British Summer Time Festival today - you're so lucky to have been to loads in Belgium!
    Thanks so much for sharing,

  10. I definitely agree with you about festivals - give me a warm bed over a tent any day. The fluoro thing is cool though, I think I would have loved it when I was younger!

  12. I don't do festivals because it's way too hot and I don't fit in with the Coachella aesthetic. I love that nail polish though!
