Check out these 10 festival makeup ideas, from bold lips to glittery eyes.
10 Festival Makeup Ideas to Try in 2023
Graphic EyelinerIf you’re all about graphic eyeliner, this look is for you. We recommend using the Maybelline New York TattooStudio Ink Pen Eyeliner to draw on your shape. Set the lines with an eyeshadow in the same color to ensure your makeup stays on all throughout the festival.
Electric EyesThis look combines a few of our favorite festival makeup trends, including a halo eye, metallic eyeshadow and liner on the lower lashes. Try it yourself with the NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Colored Liquid Eyeliner in Ghosted Green.
Embellished Pearl EyesEmbellished eyes are still trending, and this look will perfectly complement a bright outfit. Recreate the look with a shade from the aptly named Juvia’s Place The Festival Eyeshadow Palette before applying the pearl decals above your lid, on your crease and along your eyebrows.
Bright Under-EyesIf you think your cheeks and eyes are the only place that can benefit from a pop of color, think again. This festival makeup look lets your under-eyes be the star of the show. Try the look for yourself by applying your favorite colorful eyeshadow under your eyes and on the sides of your nose.
Rhinestone Nose BridgeThis shimmery purple look is reminiscent of a butterfly, and you can customize the color to match your festival fit. But before breaking out the rhinestones and eyeshadow, create an even base for your makeup with the YSL Beauty All Hours Foundation.
Yellow and Brown Winged EyeshadowDrawing on winged eyeliner can be hard on regular days, but when you’re heading to a festival, it can be even harder to focus. Instead, create a dual-colored wing with a neon yellow and brown eyeshadow. To make the colors stand out, start by prepping your lids with a white cream base, like the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
Bold Lips and EyesWhile some people still believe that a bold eye look should be paired with a more pared-down lip look, festival makeup is all about breaking the rules. After applying your eyeshadow, reach for a bright purple lipstick, like the Urban Decay Vice Lip Bond Glossy Liquid Lipstick in No Restraints.
Squiggly EyelinerThis look is perfect for showing off your lashes. After applying your colored eyeliner in a squiggly pattern and using a gold eyeshadow to fill in the negative space, top off the look with the Maybelline New York The Falsies Surreal Extensions Mascara to give your lashes a boost.
This beautiful flower-filled look will require drawing on both your eyelids and under-eyes, so it’s important to use a vibrant, fine-tip liner that won’t smudge or fade throughout the day.
