Trending: OTT Festival Makeup

Flannels blog article

Festival season is back. And with it, all the colourful, out-there beauty products you could want. The key? Bold, bright looks that are fuss-free. Think festival makeup that you can apply in the comfort of a tent. Not sure where to start? From neon eyes to all-out glitter, these are the hottest makeup trends every festival-goer needs to try.


The hottest eyeliner trend to wear this festival season? Blue eyeliner. Spotted all over the runway during fashion week, blue eyeliner is our current beauty obsession: a perfect nod to Y2K beauty and easy to achieve. Best way to style it? You can’t go wrong with a classic feline flick but if you’re feeling confident take your cues from Euphoria and try some lower lash line or artistic designs. Pair with a nude lip and big fluffy lashes and you’re good to go.


The best way to wear glitter to a festival? Go all out. The more glitter the better. Sweep some across your cheekbones in replacement of highlighter or across the eyelids instead of eyeshadow. The secret to making glitter last all day? An eyeshadow primer. Try Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion – a nude-based primer that promises to last up to 24hrs. For a look that’ll really stand out, apply some of the glitter along your hair parting.


The new eyeshadow trend taking over Instagram? Ombre eyeshadow.

An easy look to create and super versatile, it’s the perfect eye look for every festival-goer. The trick to creating an ombre eye? Use a light (but bright shade) on the inner corner of the eye and blend in upward motions. Top tip? Concentrate on the inner eye and allow the colour to fade – this will make it easier to blend with the darker shades you’ll use on the middle and outer areas of the eyelid. To tie the look together, go over your lash line with a colourful eyeliner… we hear electric blue is all the rage this season.
