Show-Stopping Festival Make-Up Looks

It’s been what feels like an age, but we can finally see it - summer is on the horizon! And that means one thing: festival season is around the corner.

At Avon HQ, we love festivals as much as we love lipstick. What could be better than spending a weekend in the sun (fingers crossed!) with your friends, listening to your favourite bands? Actually, all the above. But with amazing festival make-up it’s even better. So whether you’re Glastonbury gal, a Latitude lass, or you’re heading to a rainbow-filled Pride festival with your pals, we’ve got you covered with some festival make-up ideas that we can’t get enough of.

Once you’ve aced your base with your favourite face products (hello highlighter!), add some of these sparkling additions to take your look from weekend chic to festival perfect.


Everyone knows the perfect festival make-up look is incomplete unless it includes face gems. There are so many different styles and shapes of face gems, and you can never have enough. Perfect for embellishing around your eyes, on your forehead or even dotted around your face at random, these little stick on delights are perfect if you’re not too confident at applying bright colours or bold patterns yourself. Our Showcase Face Gems come in four to-die-for patterns - we’re not sure you’ll be able to choose your favourite (we can’t!).


We love using face and body stampers for our festival make-up looks. Where else can you get away with stars and lightning bolts sprinkled over your face? It’s so much fun to apply and the patterns you can create look like they’ve been professionally applied, without the need for any artistic skill. We love these Spotlight Stamp Pens, which come in four different designs to create festival-ready patterns


You might not think of mascara when you’re thinking of festival make-up products, but as lash lovers we think a festival is the perfect opportunity to treat our lashes to our favourite thing - colour! Shimmery, sparkly and colourful mascaras are a thing, and they’re the perfect finisher for your festival make-up look. Big & Magical Mascara comes in three gorgeous shades for lashes that sparkle in the light (come rain or shine) and add gorgeous volume.

Some say your festival look is almost as important as the music itself, so whether you want a subtle look, or a look as bold as they come, it’s time to experiment with sparkles this summer.

Now all that’s left to do is decide which festival you want to go to!
