Festival season has officially started with Coachella in California and more locally it's almost time for the awesome festival Groezrock which kicks off the festival season in Belgium. I haven't ever been to Coachella (now that would be awesome), but I have had my fair share of awesome Belgian festivals in the past 13 years and if there's one thing I know.. it's that usually make-up is not on my mind those days. I'll bring simple products that'll work with a small mirror,without brushes and most importantly won't take up too much space in your backpack. DJ and it-girl Mia Moretti has been on stage at Coachella multiple times and after deejaying at some MAC Cosmetics parties she now also launched her first and very own MAC collection, inspired by festivals and in particular Coachella. And being a festival habituée.. She knows exactly which textures and formulas to pick to make this collection festival proof!
I found two very versatile products of this collection in my mailbox, so even though this year I'm sadly not going to Groezrock I'm still completely festival proof for any other festivals that might still follow! The whole collection is made up of cream textures - there's no powder to be found. Easy enough to find a reason for that: who wants to bring makeup brushes to a festival camping? No-one does. Cream products are easy to apply and blend out with your fingers on bare skin or a foundation base - there's no easier way to apply makeup in a hurry. Here you see the Casual Color in Puttin On The Spritz, a beautiful vibrant coral color that you can use on your lips and cheeks & the Cream Color Base in Summer Wind, a very pretty cream highlighter that can also be used on the eyes.
I am wearing both products on my cheeks in this picture. Puttin On The Spritz is very pigmented, but blends out beautifully to a sheer and natural flush. I haven't worn it on the lips as my lips are quite dry and need something more moisturising, but it would be worth a try if you'd like this to be a multipurpose product. The true gem here though is Summer Wind, you can barely see it on the picture as it's so subtle. Summer Wind is a beautiful very natural-looking highlighter that is absolutely perfect for everyday use. It gives you a gorgeous glow, but is nearly undetectable on your skin. So pretty!
If you like cream products, then Mia Moretti's MAC collection is definitely a collection you'll want to check out. It's available online as we speak and has also just launched in stores. On the Belgian website it looks like only the makeup bags and one of the lipsticks has sold out - all the other products are still in stock.
