3 Head-Turning Festival Makeup Looks

Who doesn’t love festival makeup? It’s your chance to take your everyday look to the next level, experimenting with everything from bigger, bolder liner wings to swiping on a statement lip. We’ve rounded up three of the coolest festival makeup looks as your go-to beauty inspiration, whether you’re off to Glasto or already planning for next year’s Coachella...

1. Extended Eyeliner

If your go-to night-out makeup involves a classic feline flick, step up your festival makeup with an extended eyeliner look. It’s bold, graphic and will look great paired with a classic white tee, denim shorts and biker boots á la our eternal festival style inspiration: Kate Moss.

Step 1: Using the pointed tip of Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Charcoal, create an angled outline at the inner corner of the eye, pointing downwards, and fill in with block colour. If you’re feeling a pop of blue, switch up cool Charcoal for the Azure shade.

Step 2: Add a small dot in the centre of the upper lash line, then another in line with the outer edge of your eyebrow to act as a guide for your eyeliner placement. Glide eyeliner from the centre of the lid to the outer dot, creating a smooth, slick wing.

Step 3: To finish, sweep Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner along the lower lash line and frame eyes with a few coats of False Lash Effect Mascara.

2. Lilac Haze

Feeling bold? Purple reigns in this fresh colour pop look, featuring on-trend lilac eyes and a glossy pink lip. It’s the perfect way to add colour to festival makeup without feeling too heavy.

Step 1: Dip a tapered eyeshadow brush into the shimmering lilac shade in Smokey Eye Drama Kit in Luxe Lilacs. Tap off excess eyeshadow before sweeping onto lids, buffing into the socket and blending up to the brow bone.

Step 2: To add definition, apply the taupe shade to the upper and lower lash lines using an angled eyeliner brush. Then, highlight eyes with the lightest lilac shade in the palette, dotting into the inner corners. Finish by sweeping False Lash Effect Mascara through lashes in a zig-zag motion to separate and define.

Step 3: Glide Colour Elixir Lip Cushion in Baby Star Coral onto lips for a smooth, glossy finish.

3. Azure Eyes

Not just for warm holiday evenings, a sweep of blue eyeliner delivers stand-out-from-the-crowd colour in one easy sweep.

Step 1: To make coloured liner stand out even more, apply a matte eyeshadow that matches your skin tone onto lids as a base. We recommend Smokey Eye Drama Kit Matte in Alluring Nude.

Step 2: Using the tip of Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Azure, glide along the upper lash line, creating a small wing at the outer corner.

Step 3: Off-set bold colour with smooth, sleek black lashes. Volume Infusion Mascara contains super-conditioning ingredients to care for lashes even after a weekend of glamping.
