The year is marching on. It’s hard to believe we’re already into April and it’s just days until Coachella, marking the start of festival season. Getting tickets to the concerts is obviously the first order of business. Once we’ve done that, we know it comes to the really important part: finalizing our boho lewks. Whether you’re going to Lollapalooza, The Governors Ball or a smaller gig, a head-turning beauty look is as essential as a good pair of jean shorts and a pair of comfortable-yet-fashionable shoes that will hold up for long hours of standing — or more accurately splashing — in a mud pit.
A festival beauty look should be unique, have as much sparkle as possible and be able to be seen from a few rows back. It should be highly Instagrammable and nod to this season’s beauty trends while staying clear of cultural appropriation or anything offensive. It should be able to be applied in a field with a small mirror and look fresh for up to 12 hours (or more) of partying. No small order, right?
We’ve rounded up some on-point makeup looks from the runways, Instagram and VIP festival attendees for ample festival beauty inspiration to see you through all the summer concerts. Are you ready to rock?
