Festival makeup is pretty next level, especially when you compare it to your everyday neutral eyeshadows and lips. However, there are standout beauty looks and then there are major festival beauty looks. If you’re after something that will turn heads even among all of the body paint, glitter tears and rainbow lipsticks, get inspired by these bold and unique makeup looks.
Check out 12 amazing makeup looks that you need to try during festival season:
1. Flower Makeup
Are you looking to really go all out this festival season? Then this is the look for you. It’s blooming beautiful.
2. Golden Band and Glitter Freckles
Floral crowns are great for festivals but this golden band across her forehead is a more unique look. You don’t have to create it by hand. Use temporary tattoos and you can achieve the look in minutes.
3. Butterfly Eyes
BUTTERFLY EFFECT Welppp… it's been a minute since I've posted lol. (Yes, I've done this look previously) wanted to recreate it since my camera quality is better now and it would be perfect for a festival look! — I'll be posting festival inspired looks these next few weeks in the colors of the rainbow to give different inspiration. That way you guys can try to color coordinate the makeup looks with outfits you might be wearing 😁 #redfestivalmakeup inspired by: @facesbyalexis ________________ Products used: #maccosmetics studio fix fluid in nc45 #benefitcosmetics precisely, my brow in '06' and #katvondbeauty dipbrow pomade in dark brown #lauragellerbeauty the real deal foundation stick in 'medium' #dermablendpro cover creme in 'golden bronze' and translucent loose setting powder #nyxcosmetics born to glow liquid illuminator in 'pure gold' and #beccacosmetics highlighter in 'champagne pop' #morphebrushes 35O matte palette #lancomeofficial hypnose drama mascara #salonperfect '615' black lashes #katvondbeauty everlasting liquid lip in 'project chimps' #nyxcosmetics white liquid liner #wetnwild h20 proof black liquid liner *red butterflies decorations and flower crown products found at michaels craft store
Can you say “slay?” Get thee to a crafts store or a dollar store to find some butterfly appliques that are similar to these. Once you apply them, you don’t need to do much else.
4. Orange and Pink Cheeks with Glitter
It’s not every day that you can wear this much color on your face, so take full advantage of it. And add some sparkle while you’re at it.
5. Forehead Embellishment
Our foreheads often get forgotten about during our regular makeup applications. Some foundation and quick contouring are usually the most they’ll get. However, this dazzling looks takes advantage of all that space.

You will not want to wear sunglasses if you’re rocking this sparkly eye makeup. The big decision you’ll have to make is whether you want to go with the neutral lip or the purple one.
7. Feather Face Paint
It’s time to bring out the face paints and the pigments. The brilliant thing about this makeup is that it looks very impressive, but it’s quick and easy to do. All you’re doing is applying different strokes of color.
8. Flower Cheeks
I LOVED doing this super fun music festival look!! @nyxcosmetics black and white liquid liner and the cover drop foundation I used a alot of the @lushcosmetics eyeliner for the color as well! It's awesome!@smashboxcosmetics cover shot bold palette, I just used wet brush to get the flowers @wetnwildbeauty glitter gel ✨ @occmakeup I used the lip tar in the color femme for a bit of the flowers and a mix of femme and the stained gloss in concubine ( my FAVOURITE ) @ardell_lashes 106 BLACK #festivalfashion #festivals #festival #festivalmakeup #coachella #coachella2017 #nyxcosmetics #ardelllashes #smashboxcosmetics #occmakeup #lushcosmetics
How cute is this? You could use little floral appliques or rhinestones or you could use eyeliners to create your own designs. Either way, you’re going to end up with a beautiful result.

Could you get away with this look for everyday? Probably not. But for festival season? Definitely. The deeper, sunset-inspired colors are brilliant for festivals instead of the classic rainbow color scheme.
10. Body Art and Glitter Tears
If you’re going to be wearing a bandeau or a strapless top, this is the look for you. Just make sure that you choose a waterproof, long-wearing body paint. You don’t want the color coming off everywhere.
11. Dried Flowers and Yellow Eyeshadow
¡Hola mis bell@s felin@s! Al habla @thatlonelycat. El tiempo no miente: ya estamos en primavera y no hay mejor forma de celebrarlo que con un look como este de @ilinapoisonbite. ¿Flores en los ojos? Me parece una idea de lo más original! 🌸🌼🌺 No olvidéis usar nuestro HT #GlitterQueens y etiquetarnos para que podamos ver y repostear vuestras creaciones 🖤🖤🖤 #glittermakeup #makeupjunkie #slave2beauty #wakeupandmakeup #dressyourface #makeupaddict #makeuplover #makeupartist #spanishartist
Dried flowers are popping up in many beauty looks. Play around with different types of blooms and a contrasting eyeshadow.
12. Cut Rainbow Cheeks
Now this is a festival look that you don’t see every day. Make sure you choose a pair of sunglasses that will not mess up the flawless gradient color on your cheeks.
