Festival Beauty Looks 2024: Meet Your Clean Makeup Routine

Festival Beauty Looks 2024: Meet Your Clean Makeup Routine

Well, it’s officially festival season. And with that comes the ultimate kick off—Coachella.

For anyone living under the proverbial rock, Coachella isn’t just a music festival; it's a cultural phenomenon where music, art, and fashion collide in the heart of California's Palm Desert. Each year, concert goers eagerly anticipate not only the musical lineup of performers, but also the opportunity to showcase their unique “festival style”; complete with short shorts, flowy dresses, glitter and more. 

Given the dynamic atmosphere of festival season and the need for consistent comfort and durability (have you heard of the sand storms and heat waves?!) mastering an easy-yet-impactful look is pretty much essential. 

So grab your eyeliner, star stickers, and a whole lotta bronzer, and let’s get started. 

Natural, Bronzed & Totally Glowing 

The key to a flawless festival beauty routine is one that's both effortless and enduring (again, let’s talk about the sand storms). A natural, glowing complexion not only reflects the radiant energy of Coachella but also withstands the desert heat. 

Start with a light coverage using the UnCoverup Concealer to even out your skin tone while keeping the coverage breathable. Opt for a product with SPF to protect your skin from the sun's harsh rays—like our SuperNatural Radiance Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, a tinted, skin-nourishing, mineral-based color-correcting sunscreen, powered by GlowPlex™, a complex of natural peptides such as Quinoa Seed Extract, Niacinamide and Pea Extract. It comes in three super sheer, gorgeously glowing shades, so finding the best one to glow, correct, and protect is easy.

Then go in with a cream bronzer like our Buriti Bronzer, blending with your fingers or our Skin2Skin Beauty Sponge, wherever the sun naturally hits, and underneath cheekbones for a bit of a contour

Highlighting is your next step to achieving that coveted sun-kissed glow. Choose a cream highlighter like our Living Luminizer, applying it to the high points of your face—cheekbones, brow bones, the bridge of your nose, and cupid's bow. Then, using our fluffy Skin2Skin Powder Blush Brush, sweep your shade of ReDimension Hydra Bronzer in a “3” shape, starting at your forehead, hitting your cheekbones, and then hitting underneath the jaw. 

Top the whole look off with a luminizing, champagne powder, like our ReDimension Hydra Dew Luminizer, applied with our Skin2Skin Classic Fan Brush.

Go Crazy for Color

When it comes to festivals like Coachella, Stagecoach, Lollapalooza and others, bold and colorful eye makeup isn't just celebrated; it’s essentially a requirement. Incorporate psychedelic hues, like electric blues, vivid violets, neon greens, and of course, lots of glitter.

To get the look, start with an eyeshadow primer to ensure those bold colors stay put from day into night, desert storms or otherwise. You can use a mattifying one, or our ReEvolve Radiance Locking Primer by gently patting it on the lid and letting it sit for a few seconds.

Some of our favorite shadows for this are our Eyelights Cream Eyeshadow in Aurora, a vibrant violet, and Sunbeam, a golden coral with a hint of peach. Apply these with your fingers to the lid, blending out and into the lower lash line. These dry quickly, so move fast.

To make the look last, take our Skin2Skin Fan Brush and dust our translucent UnPowder on top, or sweep our ReDimension Luminizer onto the lid for a golden glisten that stays put. 

Then top the whole look off with a few coats of our lifting and lengthening Straight Up Mascara.

Festival-Ready Lip Looks 

The best lip looks for festival season are ones that have maximum staying power, and a little bit of glowy glitz. Vibrant shades like fuchsia, bright red, or even unconventional colors like electric blue or metallic gold are all fabulous.

We suggest packing our Legendary Serum Lipstick, a first of its kind lipstick and lip stain serum creates fully saturated, long-lasting coverage with just one swipe, in Ruby Moon (a bright, poppy red-orange) or Linda (a vibrant raspberry). And if you’re wanting more shine, use our Lip2Cheek as a stain and pop our Liplights Cream Lip Gloss on top. Rose-Marie’s tip is to take a bit of our ReDimension Bronzer and dab it at the center of your lips for a pop of golden, sunkissed bronze.

Amp Up the Accessories

Music festivals are nothing if not a party; so let your look reflect that. Flower crowns, body glitter, glitzy headbands and more. We love matching our accessories with our makeup—particularly eye colors—so take a cue from the eyeshadow you’ve got on, and go from there.

Full-Out for Festival Season

Festivals like Coachella are the perfect backdrop to express your individuality through creative and easy beauty looks. Whether you opt for a natural glow, bold eye makeup, vibrant lips, or all of the above, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and confident. Remember to prep your skin with hydration (our SuperSerum Hydrating Mist is great for this) plus SPF, and most importantly, have fun experimenting with your look. Festival season is all about celebrating music, art, and personal expression, so let your beauty choices reflect that.
