Osheaga Festival Inspired Makeup Tutorial ft. essence cosmetics

I'm sure you've all heard of the Osheaga Festival that takes place every summer here in Montreal. Every year, Parc Jean-Drapeau welcomes some of the music industry's most coveted artists for three consecutive days. For its 10th anniversary, the lineup includes world re-known performers Florence + The Machine, Marina And The Diamonds, Kendrick Lamar, Milky Chance, The Black Keys, ALT-J, Charli XCX, Tove Lo and many more. I'm a huge music fan and living in the city, one of my favourite activities is to attend concerts and festivals... yet I've still never been to Osheaga! Something I hope to change in the future, however as a member of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Network, I thought it would be fun to take part in an Osheaga themed post and show you what look I would wear to the festival featuring one of my favourite brands, essence cosmetics. Not only are their products super affordable, but they are also long-lasting and get me through even the most hot and humid summer days. Hope you enjoy this tutorial!
