Music Festival Makeup Trends

Whether you’re kickin’ it in Cali at Coachella, or hanging at Bonnaroo, music festival season is here! With it, some of the most whimsical, funky, and far out makeup trends of the year. Check out the killer makeup the “cool kids” are rocking at this year’s hottest festivals!

Temporary Tats

What’s more modern-day hippie-chic than tattoos? But who wants the life-long commitment? Temporary tattoos are better than ever and will have you tapping into your inner flower child in no time! Whether you prefer a flowery look or that of a gothic queen – there’s a tat for that. Be sure to apply your tattoos with a wet sponge!

Accentuate the Positive

Put the festive in festival with rhinestone accents! Carefully placed rhinestones at the corners of your eyes or across your cheek bones are sure to do the trick. They also do double-duty and can be used to mask those sleep-deprived dark circles. If you’re feeling all the feels – falling teardrops of rhinestones down your cheeks says it all.

Glitter and Glitz

Glittery eyes are a music festival staple and there are tons of options for making your sparklers pop. Try glitter mascara and eyeliner for a super simple, seriously stunning look. Or spread the glitz by applying some glitter eye shadow across the tops or bottoms of your eyes and brows.

Futuristic Femme Fatale

Space-age makeup has been blowing up on the runway and social media. So, it’s not surprising to see it hitting the music festival scene. Channel your intergalactic diva with metallic silver eye shadow, iridescent highlighter, and chrome lips.

One of the best parts of a music festival is being able to express yourself! Perfecting your festival style is almost as exciting as the music itself! So, be bold, be beautiful, and have fun! If your love of beauty transcends festival season, you should consider making it a career!
