8 beauty looks to help you own the music festival scene

1. Ribbon-Laced Fishtail Pigtails

Give these traditional flower-child plaits an edgy upgrade by using the fishtail technique and lacing each weave with ribbon. Just remember that lots of weaving can leave your strands in need of some serious rehab. A leave-in oil serum will help bring back softness and shine. 

2. Teal-Blue Eye Shadow

Keep your concert tote light with single products that pack a big punch, such as an eye-shadow pod in a standout hue like bright teal blue. Swipe the color over your entire lid for mega wow factor. 

3. Half-Up Loose Crown

The perfect down-do -- this extra-loose braid keeps strands out of your face without sacrificing a smidge of style. We usually recommend second-day hair for braided hairstyles, but for this laid-back plait, clean hair will give your strands the right amount of slip. Prep your hair by using a conditioning cleanser that softens but doesn’t strip. 

4. Ombre Lips

Layering lipstick is one of our favorite new beauty techniques. This two-tone, ombre approach is equal parts artsy and elegant. 

5. Violet Smoky Eye

A hit of vibrant violet shadow instantly updates a classic smoky eye and is perfect for any evening show. A romantic updo and a barely-there pink lip will keep the look from feeling overdone.

6. Pastel-Pink Highlights

Whether you go bold with allover color or keep it simple with a few dipped strands, pastel hair color is at the top of our beauty must-try list. We love this strawberry-blonde–inspired shade of blush pink -- but more adventurous shades like lavender and light blue are great options, too. 

7. Shimmery Skin

Glitter is absolutely appropriate for any outdoor music fest. If subtle shine is your thing, an on-the-go liquid foundation will give you the natural glow you’re after. For more high-wattage sparkle, consider adding a hint of highlighter just above the cheekbones or swiping your lids with silver-flecked shadow.

8. Deconstructed Crown Braid

Place a few blooms in this headband-like hair wrap to instantly upgrade its ethereal status.

If you have thin hair, add extra grit by applying dry shampoo to air-dried strands before you begin braiding.
