12 Creative Festival Makeup Looks To Recreate For Upcoming Concerts and Gigs

Tracking concert dates and venues, securing tickets, and organising an entire friend group meet is an extreme sport that many take seriously to see their favourite artists belt out chart-busters whether it’s a much-anticipated concert on the home turf or at the coveted Coachella music festival. Such occasions call for meticulous sartorial planning, and, of course, a makeup moment or two cannot be left behind. So, whip out those glitter pigments, makeup brushes, eyeliners and what have you! Here are 12 creative music festival makeup looks for the face, eyes and lips to match the ultimate high energy of your concert outing.

Face

1. Glitter Freckles

Adding glitter freckles across the cheeks and bridge of the nose is a striking way to create a simple yet interesting festival makeup look. Mix some glitter pigment with a long-lasting makeup primer and dab it across the cheeks and the bridge of the nose.

3. Rainbow Diffusion

Kick it back to the 80s with this prismatic concert makeup look. Start by embellishing the outer lids and highest point of the cheekbones with a splash of VIBGYOR and end it by fanning out the edges with a bright pink blush/eyeshadow. Keep the complexion skin-like and lightweight with a BB cream or tinted moisturiser.

4. Pink Sugar Highlighter

If you want to add a subtle pop to your simple face makeup, place a pink highlighter atop a pink blush to give the cheekbones a metallic sheen. Go for a powder-based blush and highlighter to make it melt-proof against heat and humidity.

Eyes

5. Chain Detail

Want to look like a main character from Euphoria (2019)? This festival eye makeup look makes use of a dainty piece of chain that rests on top of the lash line. For the base, paint the lash line with a colourful eyeliner of your choice. Once it’s dried, stick a piece of chain across the lash line with some lash glue. Finish off the eye makeup with some mascara and kohl liner and you’re about to exude some main character energy!

Another quick, minimal eye makeup look you cannot go wrong with is a flutter of electric blue lashes. You can either keep the lids bare or go for a golden or neutral hue to make the lashes stand out.

7. Dainty Floral Patterns

While floral garlands are somewhat of a Coachella music festival staple, why stop the flower power at the crown? Adorn the lids with easy, colourful floral patterns using liquid liners. To make the application easier, keep a spare clean eyeliner brush in handy for cleaner, precise outlines.

Lips

9. Subtle Ombré

This is what we like to call the lowkey Bratz Doll lips. This ombré pout can be achieved in just a few minutes. Line the outer edges of the lips with a red lip liner and fade it out slightly with your fingers. Finish it off by adding a dab of lighter pink lipstick to the centre of the lips. For extra sharpness, trace the perimeter of the lips once more with the same lip liner.

If you want to commemorate the temporary escape from real life and onto the enigmatic grounds of a music festival, this comic-style pop art lips is here to pass the vibe check! Once you apply a vibrant liquid lipstick, trace the lip line and draw some faux inner lip lines with black liquid lipstick or eyeliner. For a 3D-pop effect, use a white liquid liner to mimic the light-reflecting effect.
