This massive 780-foot (238 meters) crop circle appeared in 2001 in the remote area of Milk Hill in Wiltshire, England. The elaborate design is composed of 409 circles that form a pattern called a double, or six-sided, triskelion, which is a motif consisting of three interlocking spirals.

SEPHORA PRO ARTIST PICKS: FESTIVAL BEAUTY

What’s new in Sephora PRO artist Maricela Aguilar’s tool kit for the festival season.

THE PRO

How would you describe your personal beauty style?

“I would describe my personal beauty style as polished, clean makeup that’s precise and defined.”

What’s your first beauty memory?

“A beauty memory I will never forget is when I first fell in love with makeup. I was in elementary school and my older sister would always come home from work eager to try new makeup trends on me. I remember sitting in the bathroom while she applied my makeup, and afterwards I would stare at myself in the mirror amazed at how makeup can enhance and transform a person.”

THE FESTIVAL TIPS

What’s a cool new festival beauty look you love, and how would you create it?  

“A new trend that has been really hot so far this year is metallic everything! A few ways to jazz up your festival look is is to grab your favorite metallic eyeliner (my favorites are Anastasia Beverly Hills Metallic Luster Liners). After applying your eye makeup, draw your metallic eyeliner right along your top lash line. If you want a more dramatic look, create a winged liner, or, for something more subtle, just run the liner across your lash line only. Another great way to use metallics is to create a fun, artistic look! Grab a  metallic pencil or liquid liner and draw small dots above your brows, following the shape of your brow. When you meet your dots between your brows create a larger dot at the center. With this design you can also apply jewels for a more eye-catching look. To finish the look off, also apply small dots onto your lips and place the dots at the center of your bottom lip, drawing them toward your chin (this will create a straight line of dots).”

What are your tips for making your look last from the opening act to the final encore—all while you’re dancing and sweating?

“There are three products that are must-haves to ensure your makeup stays all day: BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, Milk Studios Cooling Water, and MAKE UP FOR EVER Mist & Fix Setting Spray. I like to combine the primers with the spray. First use one of the primers, spray the mist on top, and then apply your foundation. Again, go in for another spray of the mist to lock it all in.”

THE PICKS

Milk Studios Cooling Water

“I am obsessed with this! It gets hot and sticky at festivals and your makeup tends to melt off. This product acts as a magnet, locking your makeup in place while keeping you cool. Apply it on your face, on top of makeup, on the back of your neck, or on your chest. You can also use it as a primer to help prolong the wear of your foundation during those hot festival days.”

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

“It’s perfect to wear during festivals to ensure your mascara doesn’t run or wear off while giving that full lash look.”

COVERFX Enhance Click in Golden Peach

“This product is great for touch-ups throughout the day.”

NARS Laguna Tiare Bronzer

“This is a safer way to get that sunkissed look. I like to use it on the face and body. It makes you look like a bronzed goddess without hitting the harmful rays.”

Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection Tint SPF 40

“It will not only protect your skin, but it will also give you a nice tint.”

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25

“Don’t forget to protect your lips when out in the heat. This balm is a must-have in your bag to help protect against the sun while giving lots of hydration."
