Festival season is almost here! I have some beauty products that I always take with me to festivals and I am sharing them with you.

Festival season is fast approaching! I love going to music festivals and I’ve been to enough that I have a go-to list of music festival makeup and beauty products that I have to pack.

These products are great for popping on in the morning and not having to touch them again so that you can enjoy the good vibes without having to worry about your makeup.

My Current Fave Music Festival Makeup & Beauty Products:


Milk makeup eye pigment

I love to have colorful and easy looks so I will take a bit of the Milk Makeup Eye Pigments and pop on a beautiful bold winged liner. Once the pigments dry down they aren’t going anywhere.


Music festival beauty: Face products with primer, skin recovery SPF, mineral based SPF and spf setting spray

I will often skip foundation but I will always put on the Boscia White Charcoal Primer. This primer is for those who struggle with oily skin, you can apply this where ever you normally get oily. This primer will keep you looking beautiful and matte all day long.

Sunscreen is a must! I will often layer it just to make sure that I am fully protected. I always start with an SPF base. To begin, I enjoy using the Dermalogica SPF 50 moisturizer. While I’m doing my makeup I will use the Mineral Powder SPF 45 from Peter Thomas Ross as my setting powder. Finally, I like using a SPF setting spray like this one from SuperGoop!. I love these alternative forms of SPF because they make it really easy to re-apply throughout the day.


Music festival beauty products: Lip stain and lip balm with SPF

Lip Stains are a must for me! I love them because I can apply them in the morning and not have to worry about my lips all day. I love the Sephora brand lip tints. Throughout the day I can take care of my lips with as SPF lip balm while also having a beautiful color.


Shu Uemura eyebrow pencil - best long lasting brow pencil for music festivals

TheShu Uemura Hard Brow Pencils are great for festivals because they do not move! They are only activated by the oils in your eyebrows so they’re not going to move if you accidentally wipe your brow throughout the day.


Music festival beauty - extras including glitter liner, makeup eraser, and dry shampoo

Glitter is not hard to find around festival season but it can be so annoying to apply. I like to use glitter eyeliners like the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners. They are a great option and can be used on your eye or blended out for body.

When I get back after a long, hot day, all I want to do is go to sleep. So taking a Makeup Eraser is a huge help that gets me to bed much quicker. I can just wipe off my makeup, add some moisturizer, and crash.

Lastly, I need some dry shampoo. Whether you’re in a hotel or camping out, dry shampoo is a necessity. Not only does keep your hair looking fresh but it is great for adding texture to keep your updos, up. My personal favorite brand is Batiste, their dry shampoo is great and comes in a variety of different scents so you don’t even need to take perfume!

Newer music festival makeup & beauty products I’ll be trying this year:

Music festival beauty: New products I'm excited to try this year including body glitter, Kaja moon crystal pigment, Maybelline brow tattoo, Poser Paste hair dye, and Patrick Ta body luminizer

There have been some fantastic product releases recently and I cannot wait to put them to the test at this year’s festivals. Some of these products are similar to what I already love and others are brand new and exciting! I can’t wait to add them to my music festival makeup collection.

The IGK Body Glitter Stick is stunning and a super easy and convenient way to travel with glitter. These sticks contain a beautiful holographic glitter that can be used on the body or in your hair.

The Kaja Cream Pigments look beautiful and the packaging is convenient and easy to travel with you. I can’t wait to use them and I am interested to see how they compare to the Milk Makeup ones.

I have dyed my hair many different colors but I love the options that Poster Paste gives. I’ve seen all sorts of videos and am excited to try out multi-colored highlights.

I have been using the Maybelline Tattoo Brow for a while now and I am loving it! (See my full review here.) I think that I will love this over the festival season since it will cut down on my time in the morning and I won’t have to worry about it moving throughout the day. Paired with my Shu Uemura hard pencil, I think I’m going to have a home run combo.

There have been so many body luminizers coming out in the past year and I think they’re going to be all over the festival scene this year. I am excited to try out the Highlighting Mist from Patrick Ta when it comes out on the 24th of April. It comes in three beautiful colors and I think the mist is going to be much easier to apply than some of the other liquid body highlighters.
