2017’s festival beauty trends

Festival Beauty Trends


Get ready to explore the dreamiest new looks in festival beauty – you'll wish you had even more fests to attend to show these off!


Need inspo before you hit the fields this summer? Look no further: we’ve rounded up the cutest looks for this year’s fests – and don’t worry, they’ll all distract from the muddy wellies and dry-shampooed hair…

Subtle stars

For a low-key look that’s still on point, try a couple of delicate gold stars across one cheekbone. Pair with a rosy lip and lashings of mascara to look great, but like you totally haven’t tried…


80s glamour

Try bold, David Bowie-esque blusher swept in a ‘C’ shape across your cheekbone and up past your eyebrows on each side of your face (try it at home first – look to Kenzo’s SS17 collection for inspo).


Matchy matchy

Team the colours on your outfit to your eyeshadow. We recommend rainbow tie-dye for a truly vibrant, summery statement.


Luxe freckles

Pepper your cheeks with golden flecks of glitter this summer. They’re sure to catch the sunlight prettily as you sunbathe by the main stage with an ice-cold cider in hand…


Rainbow sweeps

It’s all about washes of colour this season. Whether you opt for pastel shades or hot, sunset hues, you’ll turn heads for all the right reasons.


Rhinestone glory

Feeling brave? We reckon you should go for stick-on gemstones to complete your festival look. Try red rhinestones on top of red lipstick – just make sure you’ve got a straw ready so you can keep sipping your drink…


Maxed-out glitter

Try it on your lips (pick a colour that matches your lipstick), coat your eyelids or even try it across your brows. Trends come and go, but we reckon glitter will always have a place in our festival beauty kit.


Keeping it real

Prefer pared-back pretty to mad festival glam? Strip things back with a bold matte lip – in a red or purple – with a clean, clear foundation base. Simples!
