Face The Music: Coachella/Music Festival Makeup Look


So it’s music festival season and right about now I wish I was in the deserts of Coachella, but instead I decided to just dress and do my makeup like I was going. I wanted to do a music festival look that will work for any of your summer concerts/festivals using some trendy concert accessories. I’m going to the 8th Annual 104.5 Birthday Show where Death Cab for Cutie, Hozier, Passion Pit and Vance Joy are playing and I’ll be seeing Ed Sheeran at the end of May. Below I’ve listed the products for this look (they’re all drugstore, except the brows, working on that) and some of my essentials. If you guys want a music festival fashion post, let me know!




Note: I would definitely put a sunscreen under my makeup, even if the BB Cream has SPF in it. 

BB Cream: Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Perfector BB Cream Normal To Dry Skin formula (I’d prob get the oil-free one for a music festival) in Fair.

Concealer: NYX HD Photo Concealer in Porcelain

Highlight: Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in Bare Light  with Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls in Light Bronze. I used these all over my cheeks, forehead and nose.

Bronzer: Maybelline Master Bronze in Weekend Bronze (limited edition last year, I know Maybelline is coming out with a lot of new products in June, hopefully they’ll bring back a bronzer like this) similar Physicians Formula Bronzer Glow-Boosting BB SPF 20

Blush: Colourpop Supershock Cheek in Bonus

Setting Powder: NYX HD Setting Powder in Banana

Eyebrows: Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse in Medium Brown and NYX Brow Mascara in Brunette

Eyeshadows: My technique for this was to make it look messy and wet, so I just layered a bunch of shadows and blended messily. 

Eyeliner: L’Oreal Silkissime Liner in Gold

Mascara: L’Oreal Telescopic in Carbon Black (I’d get this is waterproof for an outdoor music festival)

Lips: NYX Wicked Lippie in Mischevious with L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Hot Mess over top (I find these at my local Rite Aid)


Headcrown: Urban Outfitters Golden Leaves Headpiece (sold out), but their Athena Headband in identical.

Fake septum rings: #1 in the first picture is Golden Acerose Filigree Fake Septum Ring, in the 2nd pictures is Gold Tribal Clip On Septum Hanger.

Top: Lace Cut-Out Shoulder Top in Rust 

My Concert Essentials:

  1. Sunscreen
  2. Crossbody Bag
  3. Booties or Sneaks
  4. Lip Balm
  5. Sunglasses
  6. Hat
