Festivals are a fun way to try out bold, colourful and crazy looks. But sometimes they're just not all that practical. If you want to go for a more understated festival makeup alternative, check out some of our suggestions below!

Glitter Lips? How about High Shine Lips?

Glitter lips are a huge trend on the catwalk and as festival makeup looks. But in truth, who really wants to deal with accidentally eating glitter or feeling that strange gritty sensation on their lips? Instead, why not just opt for a glossy lip crayon like the Cream Glaze Crayon and pick a bright shade like Jetset (as seen below) for statement lips.

Eccentric Eye Makeup or a Dramatic Smokey Eye

Makeup artists love to play around with bold and bright colours, creating incredible looks. While some may feel bold enough to try creating a bright look for their festival makeup, others may find it too daunting a task. If you want something dramatic but easier to emulate, why not try a black smokey eye. It's very easy to create, is super eye catching and much easier to pull off! festival makeup Follow our tutorial to recreate the dramatic eye makeup look on the right.

Strobed Skin Rather Than a Bedazzled Face

We can't say we know a lot of people who'd be comfortable walking around with rhinestones stuck to their face and glitter dusted everywhere on a daily basis. (I mean, think of the mess! And scrubbing that stuff off would be a nightmare, to boot). But if you do still want to feel glowy and pretty when you're away at a festival, just go crazy with your highlighter! This is your chance to add a tonne of shimmer to your skin and really get the most out of your Shimmer Brick or Dust 24K for super glowy, strobed skin!
