Get festival ready with these make-up looks

Just in case you didn’t get enough festival make-up inspiration from Coachella and Glastonbury, we asked MUAs and Glow Up alumni Shanice Croasdaile and Hannah Cunningham to share their thoughts on which trends will be taking over the festival fields.

 

1. Dot-to-dot

This super-fun look uses tiny dots to create a bright and bold statement.

“Makeup as a whole is about expression, freedom and having fun! Festival season lets us take that to a different level and really do whatever we want!”, shares Croasdaile. 

“These beautiful dotted looks are so easy, literally anyone can do them. All you need is some water-activated paint in the colours of your choosing, the tail end of a brush and you’re on your way!”

 

2. Get graphic

“I’ve noticed a lot of people with big, bold graphic liner in multiple colours,” shares Cunningham, highlighting that the look is sometimes seen topped with matching gems – proving the Euphoria trend is going nowhere.

The “uniliner” trend mimics a mask across the face for a bold look, with Cunningham sharing “I’ve also noticed a lot of people taking it across the nose, made popular by @adultsdrink on Instagram (pictured).”

 

 3. Festival foils

There are so many face stickers and added extras like gems available to jazz up a look for a futuristic festival moment.

The added benefit of premade stickers is that you can create a stand-out festival look with minimal effort – perfect for day three of sleeping in a tent.

 

4. Pops of pastels

Pastel colours are perfect for festival – take a pastel eyeshadow across your eyes for a fuss-free look. Bonus points if you match your shadow to your festival fit!

 

5. Neon nights

Neon colours will always be in for festival season. Use a neon pigment or layer a bright colour over a white base to make it stand out for a bold and bright pop of colour.

The key with neon is that less is more – choose one feature to make it stand out.
