5 Festival Makeup Trends for 2018. Plus Permission To Do It Your Way!
It might be still cold here in Melbourne Australia, but it is September and there have been a few days that have teased us with the beautiful weather ahead for… Australia’s FESTIVAL SEASON and we’re excited to share with you the latest festival makeup trends with you and even more excited to see our (the collective Australian festival goers) take on them over the next few months.
Fresh & natural foundation - Festival Makeup Trend 1
This is the most exciting overall makeup trend for 2018 - the fresh glow and natural foundation trend. And it’s about time. But to do this “you must first ace the base” says top Skin and Laser Specialist Crystal Patel “so your skin glows naturally without foundation”. This year, Glitterazzi Glitter gives you permission to back off from a heavy foundation look at festivals (and every day), Instead, use a good sunscreen and a mineral powder and let the skin of your face be as free as those cheeks (yes we just said that).
Glitter - But only if it’s biodegradable glitter - Festival Makeup Trend 2
This is so exciting for us and is one of the reasons we started our Biodegradable Glitter business in the first place. Festivals are the perfect place for getting your creative on and having wild and free fun with glitter. But there is no reason to use glitter that is not proven to be biodegradable and compostable, otherwise, it’s just like leaving your ciggy butts in the bush (did you know they’re plastic too!). Because, no matter how hard you try to keep your makeup in place for 17 hrs of dancing, we guarantee you’re going to end up losing a few sparkles here and there and that’s ok if it’s proven to biodegrade into harmless substances! If you’re not sure - ask for their credentials or check that they are a licensed distributor of eco-friendly glitter like us.
We’ve collected our best glitter makeup ideas to inspire you. These are all face glitter looks using our biodegradable eco-friendly glitter.
For other ideas you can always head over to our Pinterest board - this has stunning glitter looks we’ve collected but they are not created with biodegradable glitter. Be inspired but use eco glitter instead to replicate these looks.
Body glitter is one of our favourite festival makeup gotos. It’s easy and can have such an awesome impact, especially on a guy (who might not be able or feel so comfortable to wear Face Glitter like our dear friend Leather Lungs as featured above). We just suggest you use a stronger glue such as an organic hair gel for your application base.
Bold coloured statement makeup - Fashion Festival Makeup Trend 3
We’ve always been a fan of colour and love seeing how people wear it in makeup at festivals. We’ve collected a few of our favorite bold and colourful festival makeup looks to inspire you. We also suggest highlighting these looks with a little biodegradable glitter for a little extra fun!
Keep it simple but fun - Fashion Festival Makeup Trend 4
Can’t be bothered with all the makeup but still want to have a little fun. Why not just add a touch of colour under the eyes or try colour where you would normally put highlights such as under the brows or on the cheekbones.
Whatever Trevor, you do you - Fashion Festival Makeup Trend 5
You do you. You’re at a festival and that in itself gives you permission to backhand the trends, fashion, style, and just do you - whatever that is, whatever you love or have always wanted to do. From no makeup to no clothes, it’s about whatever makes you feel good. As long as it’s not hurting anyone or culturally offensive we say - go play!
