Festival Season Makeup Looks

As spring blooms and summer beckons, festival season is upon us once again! Whether you're dancing under the stars at Coachella, soaking up the sun at Glastonbury, or vibing at Burning Man, there's one thing you'll want to get just right – your makeup. Festival makeup is all about self-expression, creativity, and embracing the spirit of the event. From glitter to neon hues, here are some dazzling makeup looks to elevate your festival experience.

1. Glitter Goddess:

Unleash your inner sparkle with a glitter-centric makeup look that's bound to turn heads. Start with a flawless base using a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer to let your skin breathe throughout the day. Then, dive into the glittery goodness! Sweep a shimmering eyeshadow across your lids, and add some extra drama with glitter eyeliner or loose glitter applied with a mixing medium. Don't forget to highlight your cheekbones with a dazzling highlighter for an ethereal glow. Finish off with a swipe of your favorite bold lipstick, and you're ready to shine brighter than the stage lights. We recommend our Moon Glaze Glitter Palette, which has all your glitter needs in one convenient tackle box!



2. Neon Dream:

Bring the party to your face with vibrant neon hues that scream fun and excitement. Experiment with neon eyeshadows in shades of electric pink, lime green, and neon blue to create a bold eye look that commands attention. If you want to use many neon colors at once, we've got you covered with our UV Neon Pigment set! Amp up the drama by adding graphic eyeliner or winged flicks in contrasting colors. For an extra pop, adorn your face with neon face paint or temporary tattoos in funky designs. Complete the look with a glossy lip in a coordinating neon shade, and get ready to light up the night in style.



3. Boho Chic:

Channel your inner flower child with a bohemian-inspired makeup look that's effortlessly chic. Opt for earthy tones like warm browns, soft oranges, and dusty pinks to create a soft and romantic eye look. Add a touch of whimsy with floral accents using face gems or temporary tattoos placed delicately around your eyes or along your hairline. Enhance your natural glow with a peachy blush and a dewy highlighter for a fresh-faced finish. Finish off the look with a nude lip and loose, tousled waves for a laid-back vibe that's perfect for dancing the day away.


4. Cosmic Queen:

Embrace the otherworldly vibes of festival season with a cosmic-inspired makeup look that's out of this world. Start by creating a galaxy-inspired eye look using deep purples, blues, and shimmery silver shades to mimic the depths of space. Add a touch of cosmic sparkle with holographic glitter or metallic pigments applied to the inner corners of your eyes or along your brow bone. Check out our many Eye Dusts and Glitters to achieve the look! Get creative with face jewels or metallic foil accents to create a celestial masterpiece on your skin. Finish off with a bold lip in a deep, vampy shade, and prepare to be the star of the show.


No matter which makeup look you choose to rock this festival season, the most important thing is to have fun, express yourself, and embrace the spirit of creativity and individuality that festivals embody. So grab your glitter, paintbrushes, and brightest eyeshadows, and get ready to make some unforgettable memories. After all, when it comes to festival makeup, the sky's the limit!
