The 4 Essential Steps For Any Festival Look

Author: Danielle Cauchi   Date Posted: 19 December 2017 

Festival season is here!

Time to frolic the fields with your closest friends, party it up with other sweaty, fun-loving festival-goers, dance to some awesome music and take some super aesthetic shots for Instagram.

Though trends may change with the seasons, the basic elements of ‘The Festival Look’ always stay the same.

Here are the ingredients to nailing that Coachella-worthy festival face.



A Sprinkle of Glitter


You can’t have festival makeup without glitter.

Originally, festival-goers would keep their glittery accents to the eye area and add a little touch of glitter to the cheeks.

But with the rise of the almighty glow, festival looks now tend to incorporate heavy glitter application to the cheekbones and décolletage.

Some even add a dash of glitter to the centre of the lips to plump up their pout. Think Coachella meets Kylie Jenner.

BYS Roll-On Body Shimmers are perfect for glittering up your look as they can be applied to the face and body with excellent precision.

Mermaid Salon also make some exquisite pressed glitters that can be added to your eye look, dusted across the face or dabbed onto the lips.

If a crazily sparkled lip isn’t for you and you’re just interested in some subtle glitter, then try a BYS Glitter Lipgloss. They come in a variety of vibrant shades so there’s bound to be one that matches your festival vibe this year!

A Blend of Exotic Colour


Festival season is your chance to let your inner Picasso fly without any judgement.

BYS have recently released this stunning Festival Palette that features 20 bright, brilliant eyeshadows that are perfect for creating a bunch of different makeup looks.

If you’re after more of a single-toned look with a lot of depth and dimension and don’t mind spending a little extra, Mermaid Salon’s eyeshadow palette’s are extremely versatile and super extensive when it comes to providing you with a full colour spectrum for flawless blending.

A Little Bedazzlement


The best festival looks always tend to include some dazzling jewels around the eyes, along the top of the brows and in the centre of the forehead to finish things off in a beautifully elegant way.

BYS Face & Body Glitter Kits come with the glue and beaded jewels you need for a stunning completed look.

A Statement Accessory


Every look needs a statement accessory to finish it off.

Chokers positively exploded this year. You can bet these babies will be everywhere this festival season.

Be Yourself make a lovely range of chokers that are perfect for whichever festival you’ll be attending this year.  

If chokers aren’t your thing, opt for a layered bracelet like these Milan Bracelets. They’re just as gorg and festival-esque!

Move over, Vanessa Hudgens. There’s a new festival queen in town.  

 Keep safe, have fun and get your glam on this festival season!
