The weather’s getting hotter, shorts are getting shorter, and music festivals are everywhere. Try one of these three ideas to look your best on festival day!

Start with a basic face (foundation and mascara) and pick your path from there:


Nude Smoke


This look is great for any concert, or even just a night out.

You will need:

bareMinerals Peach Eyecolor Eye Shadow, Radiant Rebecca ($14, Beauty.com)

bareMinerals Eyecolor, Passionate Plum ($14, Nordstrom)

 Ulta Eyeshadow, Aztec Gold ($7, Ulta)

Rimmel London Scandel Eyes Gel Eyeliner, ($5.99, Ulta)

bareMinerals 100% Natural Lip Gloss, Sugar Cookie ($15, Ulta)

Use the first three products to create a subtle but shimmery smoky eye. I like to keep Aztec Gold up by the brow and by the inner crease, Passionate Plum for the edges, and Radiant Rebecca for blending and shimmer. Create a dramatic cat-eye with the gel eyeliner. Finish off with lip gloss and you’re good to go!

    This looks really nice for festivals. I personally don’t apply much makeup and always keep it simple so it should work for me.

  • Kari Jonard

    Very fun! This adds the pop without going overboard during the hot months of the year.

  • I love summer because of weather in this part of Europe!
    Yes, this look is a nice idea for any concert or festival!

  • A nude smoky look is perfect for festivals, keeping it simple but defined will mean you will stand out but not for the wrong reasons.

  • Kerry O’Byrne

    Great look! I think its a great idea to keep it simple and stand out at festivals. You don’t want the weather washing it off or the sweat in that matter!

  • Marta Nightingale

    Your face is very sweet, a ‘baby face’, so you can go for very bold make-ups and still look lovely. My fav is the Aztec eye, though I have very light blue eyes and if I go too far, I just look creepy.

  • Maria Louisa Mae P. Mercado

    Not sure if I could pull that off. I’m not too adventurous with makeup. Looks great on you though.

  • Greta Hollar

    I’m awful with makeup and love your looks. So fun!

    The Flower Child look is my favorite. Definitely out there but maybe a change in my regular old routine would be nice!

  • Little B & Me

    You should do a break down, step by step of how to do these looks.
    I am beyond useless even when its put in front of me haha!

  • Nice looks, I love the teal colour! Hope you have fun at any festivals you’re heading to this summer.
