After a long and freezing cold winter (in Cape Town, at least) the weather is finally warming up which means: Festival Season is upon us! Along with the fashion trends that Donna will discuss in a future post – there are a host of beauty trends that come with attending festivals. Because festivals are a time of self expression and absolute freedom, general “rules” are thrown out of the window – especially in terms of makeup. Here are some trends I’ve been loving:
Face Gems & Bindi’s
The festival staple. Don’t be scared to creative with placement.
Often in strinking colours coupled with loads of rings and even flashtats
Brightly Coloured Hair
If you’re not looking for a permanent change there are loads of temporary hair colour solutions around.
Real. Faux. Whatever. They’re cute.
Embrace your inner 5 year old, and prepare to find specks of it EVERYWHERE for the next month (still worth it)
Again with the inner 5 year old, but you’re not at a birthday party, and you usually have to do it yourself.
Bright Eye and Lip Colours
Adding extra pops of colour to your look is a subtle (or not so subtle) way of embracing festival makeup without leaving your comfort zone.
I hope this post inspired you, and if you recognise me on some dancefloor at a party, please come say hi, we’ll have a little dance party and we an be real life friends (rather than internet friends) it would be great.
Happy Jamming and Happy Glamming
