Off to Paradise IMF!!

Off to Paradise IMF!!

“It’s time for East to meet West”. American rapper and multi-Grammy-award winner Kanye West will headline the much awaited international music festival in The Philippines, the #ParadiseIMF, happening on April 9, 2016 at Aseana City, Paranaque featuring Wiz Khalifa (!!!), Austin Mahone, Afrojack, and Rudimental DJ as well.

I’ve been checking out this fest since last year and the line up just kept on surprising me, especially when they announced Afrojack and Wiz Khalifa to perform (especially Wiz!! I really love his vulnerability and musical style).

This will be my 3rd music fest this year and I must say that this is probably the biggest and most diverse in terms of genre – Hiphop, Rap, EDM, OPM, etc. I’m also looking forward to our very own Up Dharma Down, Hale, Itchyworms, Yolanda Moon, Maude, Jessica Milner, Clara Benin, Joyce Pring, and Cheats (loveee!!)

Things to bring according to Paradise which I’ve been preparing: Sunglasses, mats/blankets, power bank, hand sanitizers. Of course, how can we forget rave makeup and nails (I like this UV top coat from Girl Stuff which makes any nail color more intense and glowing in the dark)

I have so much affinity for these kinds of festivals because it opens me to a lot of things – culture, different music, people. I like that these festivals also challenge me in terms of amping up style, especially this summer.

Always in love with denim and I think I’ll be sporting some Levi’s icons and essentials which can be viewed at one of the Paradise booths. My favorite is the 501!

In term of makeup, let me share with you some of the 2016 makeup trends I learned from events and forecasts. We can draw inspiration from these for our makeup style this Saturday!

Makeup for music festivals for me should be wearable yet expressive whether at day or night. I like that we can be really creative here but since these are events that run for more than 8 hours, it should be long-lasting and comfortable as well. Above are some styles and below are micro-tips on how to preserve and wear them all-day, all-night.

  1. Dramatic Eyes –  Blue-green metallic smokey gradation in the eyes, even in the lower lash line, would appear very fresh and lively just like Kendall’s makeup above. You can also try accentuating with more intense pigments, shimmers or even glitters, as long as you prep & prime the lids to make it stay for a long time. Try MAC Prep & Prime or NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow.
  2.  Statement Lip – Orange, bright red, vamp or neutral. Try adding shimmers on contour areas of the lip for drama, and try wearing a lip primer and lip color in liquid/powder format to make it stay longer and non-transferrable.

I hope this helped and inspired you! See you there and follow me on snapchat(@mikkigalang) or Instagram (@mikkigalangdotcom) for event updates!

Tickets now available at GA is alreadt an ok option to optimize the experience of the festival as it would allow entry after 3pm, which will be the start of the major local and international acts.
