COACHELLA GLAM | FESTIVAL MAKEUP LOOK INSPIRED BY KAUSHAL BEAUTY PLUS TIPS ON RECREATING YOUTUBE TUTORIALS

Coachella Makeup Look by +Kaushal Beauty 
Hey guys, I wanted to share a makeup look I worked on yesterday with you all inspired by the unbelievably stunning Kaushal Beauty (as pictured above). If you are anything like me then you spend a good chunk of your down time on YouTube watching and gazing in awe at many a tutorial. I first joined the world of YouTube at eighteen and immersed myself in the beauty community. The only issue was it made me want so much, I would see all these incredible tutorials and feel like I had to go out and buy all the products that person used. I was young and impatient. I wanted to be good at makeup and good at life, and I sucked at both. I remember tweeting one well-known YouTuber lamenting how hard, most of the, products she used were to get hold of in the UK and she quite simply replied with use something similar. It is the best advice I have received via Twitter to this day and I can't believe I never thought of something so obvious myself. 

Coachella Makeup Look by @KaushalBeauty
I have discussed previously the unrealistic beauty ideals YouTube has helped perpetuate (read more about that here) and Kaushal and I are miles apart in terms of skill, camera quality and frankly her phenomenal good looks. So don't be disheartened if your recreation doesn't turn out perfect or as you expected, be proud of the work you put in and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Think about how much makeup you own and how little of it you actually use. I loved working on this look as I got to use products I have barely touched in years like the Sigma Resort Palette. I owned a few products that Kaushal used, but a lot of the time I had to think outside of the box which was a fun challenge for me. 


You can watch Kaushal's brilliant tutorial in full below to see how she created the look and what she used. I will include a list of what products she used where and what products I used instead. Hand on heart, I have never tried my hand at a look like this before nor have I ever attempted such a bold wing. I still shied away from some of the more bolder elements in her look like the dots of glitter and the fake lip ring which brings me to another tip. We're all different, what works on someone else may not work on us. We have different eye shapes, faces, complexions, skin tones and preferences. Always adapt a look to suit your needs, if you prefer a matte foundation switch it up. Be true to yourself but be inspired by others. For instance, as this was a new look for me I did my eye makeup first. I also used tape to help map out my wing and I experimented with different colours. 


KAUSHAL'S PRODUCTS | KIRAN'S ALTERNATIVES
NYX Warm Neutrals Palette | Papaya from Sigma Resort Palette
Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in 31 Iris Blue | Sigma Resort Palette in Neela
NYX Glitter Glue | Not necessary as I didn't use loose glitter
LIT Cosmetics Goober Grape Glitter | Colour Pop Super Shock Shadow in Patchwork
Lilly Lashes in Miami | No False Lashes but KISS and Ardell are my favourites
The Body Shop Contour Kit | Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Deep


OTHER PRODUCTS I USED


I didn't have a purple eyeliner to use so instead I used a purple mascara and just used a thin brush to sketch out a line on my eyes. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, I find winged eyeliner so intimidating. The hardest part is making them even and actually being able to see. A good magnifying mirror is crucial. For the line on my chin I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. At first I tried using both card and sellotape to try and sketch out a perfect line but it was actually easier to freehand the line in one stroke. I rarely ever do anything to my brows but they were looking sparse so I added Corruption eyeshadow to fill in the gaps and some glitter strokes too for an element of fun. My brows aren't nearly as tidy and sculpted as Kaushal's so I didn't do the neat line of glitter as it would only emphasis the unruly nature of my existing brows. It's not perfect but it turned out much better than I hoped. Thank you so much for reading, I would love to know who your favourite muas and YouTubers are, please let me know in the comments.

  2. I don't know this particular You Tube channel, but I started a series when I started blogging a few years ago to recreate makeup ads by only shopping my stash. It did help a lot to show me how much makeup I actually do own already and how much I can do with it.
    Saves a lot of money in the long run and shows you different wqys to wear makeup. Well done for recreating this look.

  13. I love the look that you created Kiran, I think sometimes we don't think to use similar products we want to create a look and think that we have to use the same products that a you tuber has used so finding alternatives in your collection is a great idea.
