3 Festival Beauty Trends You’re Going To See Everywhere This Season


Festival season has evolved into a trend-setting moment that rivals any fashion week. Concertgoers dress to impress knowing that only the most daring looks will make waves in the desert — and attract paparazzi attention. This is the occasion to put your style A game on display and experiment with eye-catching beauty trends that reflect your personality.

Whether you’re heading to Palm Springs in April (we’ll be there for our fifth-annual ZOEasis party) or you just want to capture the spirit, we’ve partnered with Sephora to highlight three key festival-inspired beauty trends we predict will be everywhere this spring. Stunning glitter, ethereal all-over shimmer, bold flashes of color — each is guaranteed to make you stand out in the desert, in the city, and everywhere in between. Simply click and drag to reveal our favorite festival looks!


Festival season wouldn’t be complete without head-turning hair. Instead of committing with permanent dye, opt for temporary hair makeup, like Good Dye Young Poser Paste Temporary Hair Makeup, in a bright shade. (For this look, we layered on the styling paste at the roots and brushed it through the ends to create a gradient effect.) Complement vivid strands with matching monochromatic makeup on the eyes and lips — we’re partial to the creamy Sephora Collection #LipStories lipsticks.

For 2019, glitter is getting even more daring. We love the unapologetically chunky texture of IGK’s new House Party Hair + Body Glitter Stick. Apply it to the scalp along parts or on top of hair for a mirrored finish. For an extra boost of glimmer: dab the product onto the collarbone and cheeks. The clever solid formula means there’s no product fallout, and it’s a packing go-to.

Get a glam, full-body highlight with Bumble and bumble Bb. Shimmer Strobing Jelly for Hair, Body and Face, #nofilter necessary. It’s so versatile: Dab the prismatic jelly on your strands, face, chest, and arms (or just focus on one area) for major glow on the go. The product’s secret? It lies in the infusion of mica for instant, high-impact shimmer. As an added perk, the innovative moldable texture means there is zero stickiness, so you’ll look dewy without ever feeling it.
