5 Favorite Music Festival Makeup Looks

Once music festival season is underway during the summer, it is always fun to push past boundaries and create new looks that can be fun, glam, and totally different than your everyday look. Here are just a few favorites that made an appearance this summer.

1—Bold Lips. Forget the nudes and subtle naturals! Bold, colorful lipsticks are the perfect addition to any makeup look. Adding glitter can amp them up even more!

2—Glitter. Instead of a highlight, use glitter. Whether it’s a cream or powder that is applied with glue, this iridescent look is sure to turn heads.

3—Paint lines. War face paint? Not quite. Festival face paint? Yes. Using a white or brightly colored and pigmented liner, it’s easy to create lines and designs on the nose, lips, and forehead.

4—Gems. With a little eyelash glue, applying gems to the face has never been easier! Use them above the eyebrows or on the cheeks to create symmetrical and asymmetrical designs that are bound to be unique.

5—Colorful combos. Color mixing and matching has never been better! Warm and cool toned colors can create a beautiful contrast and look great on any skin tone.


As the festival season comes around every year, it is always fun to see what styles have changed and what have remained. Although a majority of festivals take place during summer, these five makeup looks can be found at raves and festivals no matter what time of year.
