Festival Season Beauty Looks That’ll Bring the Heat
Need some festival season beauty inspiration?
From Coachella to Lollapalooza, festival goers plan months in advance to prep their looks, and celebs are no exception. If you’re trying to plan your festival season beauty looks for 2019, take notes from some of our favorite celebs. We’ve gathered some our fav festival looks from A-listers and beyond so you can be prepared to look like a headliner at your next festival.
Shay Mitchell’s look at the Revolve Coachella 2018 party taught us 2 things… 1. comfort is key at music festivals, and 2. you can be both comfortable and glam at the same time. She used accessories like gold hoops and trendy shades to add excitement to her black off-the-shoulder top and white denim shorts. Paired with ‘i woke up like this’ makeup and sleek hair with a braided middle part, Shay is festival season beauty goals.
We’re used to seeing garish, colorful festival looks, but Rihanna set the record straight at Coachella last year: less is more. The bad gal herself showed us that sticking to a palette of 1-2 colors will ensure you’re on trend without going over the top. She matched her outfit with monochromatic pink eye makeup, and finished the look with a sleek retro bob.
Alessandra Ambrosio is no stranger to festival fashion, and she always keeps her looks fresh. The delicate gold stars framing her eyes are subtle but still super pretty. In true supermodel style, Alessandra’s ‘barely there’ makeup and effortless waves are perfect for spending the day in the desert sun. You’ll definitely want to remember some sunnies!
While know that celebrities probably don’t camp in tents at our favorite festivals, we respect realistic, low-key festival looks like Kendall Jenner’s from Coachella 2018. Nobody wants to be weighed down by a full face of makeup, so use Kendall as inspiration for the perfect ‘no makeup, makeup‘ look. The best part? You don’t need to do your hair when it’s under a baseball cap. Less work and less sun damage – a true win-win!
Adwoa Aboah is the queen of cool-girl festival style. Her outfit proves that attention to detail can create a cohesive look out of pieces that you normally wouldn’t think to put together. Sticking with a neutral main color (like black, for example) and playing with textures and accessories will take you to the next level this festival season.
Emily Ratajkowski knows how to keep cool while looking hot. Her white button down dress is simple, yet elegant – just like her makeup. The key to desert glam is avoiding cakey makeup and hair that needs to be touched-up. So, Emily was smart to rock natural-looking waves and subtle makeup. Her gold jewelry and woven bag added the perfect hint of festival glam.

Of course you don’t need to be a celebrity to kill the festival season beauty and style game. This festival goer paired her white bikini with a sporty mesh top and Namilia chaps. Chunky jewelry and sleek, simple hair and makeup make this look both practical and playful.
