5 Festival Beauty Looks That Don’t Involve Glitter

Contrary to popular belief, not every festival-goer loves glitter. Shocker, we know, but a face without glitter is a lot easier to maintain through a sweaty tent-based weekend.

With that in mind we’ve rounded up some of our favourite festival beauty looks with not a shard of sparkle in sight. Well, maybe a little highlight. Because, deep down, everyone loves to shine, right?

Aqua eyes

Make like mega-babe Joan Smalls and elevate your usual beauty look with a bright eye. We’re so into Joan’s aqua shade and Hikari’s Gwen Eye Shadow quad has the exact colour you need to recreate the look. Dip a fine-tipped brush in a little water and go to town.

I been on … #coachella ?

A light highlight

Of course it doesn’t take much/anything to make Gigi Hadid look good, but her Coachella highlight was on point. Emphasise your own cheekbones and brows with Lord & Berry’s Luminzer Highlighter Stick in Moon.

Feline flicks

When you go as bold on the hair as Genelle Seldon did for Coachella, you really don’t need to add much make-up, but her catlike eyeliner is the perfect finishing touch. Get the look with New CID Cosmetics and their I-Flick pencil.

Keep it glossy

Take heed from Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin, and go for a super-glossy, nineties-style lip. Prep with Lord & Berry’s Lip Oil Potion Advanced Fluid Lip Treatment, then slick on as much clear gloss as you can handle. Non-sticky is always best!

Just add sunglasses

Stayed too late at the after party and can’t think of anything worse than doing your make-up? No problem. Festivals are the one place where sunglasses are always acceptable – indoors, outdoors, day and night.
