Karen Yeung Shows Us How She Does Festival Beauty in This Exclusive Makeup Tutorial
Watch the beauty guru transform into a real-life unicorn.
Festival season is officially here. And what better way to celebrate it than experimenting with some playful beauty looks? Teaming up with YouTube sensation Karen Yeung, we now present to you a unicorn-inspired makeup tutorial that’s fun, unique and most of all, festival and party-ready.
Starting with the eyes, Karen goes bold with MAC‘s glittery “I Like 2 Watch” eyeshadow. “I like to spray my brush with MAC’s PREP + PRIME FIX+ Spray before picking up eyeshadows with it,” the makeup guru tells us. “It helps intensify the shades, making the colors pop on your lids.” After blending everything together with peachy and burgundy tones, Karen lined her lower waterline and set it with a purple eyeshadow. “Just so it doesn’t budge,” she explains.
In addition to the regular cat eye, Karen spices things up with Milk Makeup‘s heart-shaped tattoo stamp, carefully applied right below her eyes. Lastly, she completes the look with blush and highlighter, as well as a matte, pastel pink lip. To elevate the entire look, dab a little bit of MAC’s “Show Gold” highlighter on your upper lip — it gives that extra oomph of dreaminess.
Try this out yourself by watching the tutorial above. Be sure to check out our style guide with Karen for some festival outfit inspiration.
