Dakesis recently played for the 16th birthday of an amazing girl called Alice. Since she is already so metal, she had a mini festival with her own band playing and asked us to do a set.
So, I thought this would be a good example to show you one of my more “basic” gig sets. Obviously this gig was a little more low key and since I was planning on spending a great deal of time drinking in a field, I wasn’t overly bothered about how I would end up looking. Despite this, I do like to ensure I have all the essentials to remove my panda eyes before bed!!
In order, here are some of my lovely essentials:
1 Makeup Case
2 Old duster for cleaning my brushes whilst out and about
4 The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Moisturising Serum
6 Dainty Doll Foundation
10 The Body Shop’s Vitamin E BB cream (I mix this in with my foundation)
12 Nivea Hydra Moisturising Cream
14 Christina Aguilera Secret Potion Perfume
15 Nivea Roll On Deodrant (Keeps me fresh all day long)
17 Elf Makeup Lock and Seal (an absolute requirement for stage makeup)
19 The Body Shop’s Shimmer Cube Palette Eyeshadow Blue/Grey
20 Elf Brightening Eye Colour in Drama
21 The Body Shop All in One Blusher
22 Ecotools Kabuki (From Boots, bought this on a whim after I desperately needed one, and this was the only one I could almost guarantee would be cruelty free)
23 Various brushes – The Body Shop Eyeshadow Brush, Bobby Brown brushes, Elf angled foundation brush (studio range).
There is a lot more to my essentials list that this, but you get the idea! Look out for reviews of some of these products in the near future too!!
I will leave you with a thoroughly amusing picture of camping chair makeup application & the sight of hair in much need of dying!
Totally hellbent for “glamping” Dakesis style
