MUA: JODIE LEIGH-REEVE
PRODUCTS USED: MIX AND MATCH FACE JEWELS, SOPHIE HANNAH RICHARDSON ALL IN ONE ICE QUEEN FACE JEWEL, IRIDESCENT DIAMOND GLITTER, DARK UNICORN GLITTER, DARK MERMAID GLITTER - ALL LAUNCHING ONLINE APRIL 11TH!!
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE LOOK: "It was all about finding something that I would wear to Coachella myself. I saw this jacket on ASOS and thought 'THAT'S THE ONE!', Coachella sprang to mind as soon as i saw it. I'm really OBSESSED with Hissyfit bikinis too, they look so good at festivals and especially for the warm summer weather. The peach hair was definitely the perfect match for this outfit as I wanted to give an edge to the look, with messy beachy waves, topped off with a glitter parting - SO perfect for Coachella! These jewels are just LIFE! I would wear them everyday if I could!"

FAVOURITE THING ABOUT FESTIVAL SEASON: Vicki - "I love being able to put away all of the dull winter warm clothes and getting the BIGGEST jewellery, sandals and colourful outfits! And then of course the constant chat about our plans, the DJs and acts to see, the countdown to the days of the festival just make festival season a constant stream of anticipation!"

BEST THING ABOUT BEING A FESTIVAL ARTIST: "Being able to use my skills and creativity at festivals is amazing! It's a great experience and a LOT of fun!!

It's just an all round fabulous atmosphere to work in and I'm SO grateful I even have the opportunity to do this!"
