Affordable Festival MakeupAnyone else a huge fan of music festivals? Me too! No matter the time of year, I love going to festivals with friends and getting to hear all of our favorite artists and bands. One thing I have noticed at music festivals lately is that makeup has gone beyond just your ordinary everyday looks. It is all about glitter, sparkles, and especially eccentric type looks! Well I am all in on this trend and decided to give a few looks a try. Since I am already spending money on the festival tickets, I am looking to save in other ways such as makeup. Therefore, I headed to my local Dollar Tree and get inspired.

Dollar Tree has a HUGE selection of makeup, plus in select stores, they even have festival makeup! Check out below to see the look I came up with for just a few dollars. I can’t wait to wear this look at my next music fest!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • L.A. Colors® Liquid Highlighter
  • L.A. Colors® Pressed Highlighter
  • L.A. Colors® Prism Gel for Body (Sold in Select Stores)
  • L.A. Colors® Duo Eyeshadow Pencil (I used the pink and purple combo, Sold in Select Stores)
  • L.A. Colors® Purple Cosmic Lip Topper (Sold in Select Stores)
  • Floral Garden® Butterfly Decoration (I picked the jewels off of them)
  • Glitter, Gems, Jewels, or Confetti Sequins
  • Wet n Wild® Eyelash Glue
  • L.A. Colors® Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow (Pink, Silver, and Purple)
  • Tweezers

  • L.A. Colors® Black Big Lash Mascara
  • L.A. Colors® Black Matte Liquid Liner

  • Makeup Brushes

Follow Along Step-by-Step:

  1. I started by applying my Sassy+Chic B.B. Beauty Cream with my beauty blender, until my entire face was covered.
  2. Next, I used my L.A. Colors® Concealer to cover up dark circles under my eyes as well as cover any blemishes on my face.
  3. Once my blemishes were concealed, I then took L.A. Colors® Pressed Powder Foundation and using my makeup brush, applied it to my face in order to get that matte look.
  4. Now for the fun part! I took my L.A. Colors® Liquid Highlighter and applied it to my cheekbones with my finger.Affordable Festival Makeup
