Festival Makeup Looks to Boost Your Serotonin
In recent years, festivals have become one of the biggest forms of entertainment. People of all ages enjoy attending festivals of all kinds – music, art, cultural, sporting, and more. It is a great way to get out of the house and fill yourself with the energy of like-minded people. However, it’s important to take care of your mental health and wellbeing when taking part in large gatherings. One of the best ways to do this is to boost your serotonin – the hormone that contributes to making you feel good and boosting your mood. And what better way to do this than with some gorgeous festival makeup looks?
Festival makeup looks, for some, are a great way of expressing themselves, letting their inner artist come out to play, and experimenting with creative looks. But from iridescent gems on the cheeks to sky-high lashes, festival makeup looks can also be a great way to boost serotonin. We have put together a list of our favourite festival makeup looks that will not only help you shine on the dancefloor, but also enhance your wellbeing. Let’s get glammed up and get happy!
Glow Up: Neon Lights
First on our list of festival makeup looks is a great classic – neon lights! Perfect for nights out at festivals, the combination of bright lights and neon colours helps to brighten up your whole look. To really shine, opt for electric neon shades such as yellow and purple, or keep it a bit more natural with natural yellow and pink tones. Don’t be afraid to get creative with colour and use a big fluffy brush to blend the colours together. You can also use glitter or rhinestones to grab attention.
Gilded Grime: Glitter and Gems
Glitter and gems are a great way to make any festival makeup look go from 0 to 100, real quick. Whether you opt for bright, multicoloured gems on your eyes, glitter mixed in with your foundation, or glittery eye-liner, it is sure to turn heads. If you are feeling a bit more daring, you can even opt for a shimmering full body glitter, letting your body become a living art piece!
Strawberry Bling: Metallic Lips
If you want to try something new at the upcoming festival season, what about rocking a metallic lip look? Perfect for those who want to keep it a bit more subtle, go for metallic lipstick shades such as coppers and pinks for a bit of sparkle. No need to use a long-lasting lipstick either, as you will be able to top it up when needed. For a bit of extra shine, try adding a bit of glitter to the lip centre for an extra special look.
Ferocious Feline: Cat Eye
Cat eyes are a classic look and they look great at festivals. Whether you are wearing a bold eye or a more natural look, cat eyes bring the look together and frame the face. If you are unsure of how to do a cat eye, it is much easier than you think – all you need is a bit of practice and a good liquid eyeliner. To make the look even bolder, add a pair of false lashes, and don’t be afraid to choose a pair punchier than you usually would.
Vibrant Vibes: Colourful Shadows
If you are looking to add some vibrancy to your look, opt for a colourful eye look. From bright greens to electric blues, colourful shadows will be sure to brighten any look. Focus the vibrant shadow on your lid or use it to line your eyes for a more subtle look. If you are feeling creative, try to incorporate different shades on each eye for a varied look. You can also add some glitter along the lash line for an extra je-ne-sais-quoi.
Blinded by the Light: Highlighter
Nothing says festival makeup like a good highlighter. A must for any makeup look, highlighter instantly brightens any skin tone, and is easy to use. When applying highlighter, simply take a fluffy brush and add some of the product to the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones, tip of your nose and centre of your cupid’s bow. For a natural look, use a highlighter that is the same or similar shade to your skin tone, or for a more daring look, opt for a glittery or multi-toned highlighter.
Serene Serpent: Metallic Eye Liner
For something a bit different, try out a metallic eye liner. Whether you go for liquid, pencil or gel liner, it is sure to catch people’s attention with its shine and movement. If you are feeling a bit more daring, you can even opt for a glitter liner, which can be blended up and used as eyeshadow. For a more sophisticated look, opt for a slim metallic lining paired with false lashes and plenty of mascara.
We hope that this list of festival makeup looks has inspired you to give a few of them a try. Not only will you look extra special, but you will also be giving your serotonin a little boost. Remember, always take care of your skin and remove your makeup after the event. And most importantly, have fun with your looks and let the music and energy take over!
