With festival season nearly upon us, one of the biggest decisions for many of us is deciding on the perfect festival look. We've put this blog together to highlight some key trends for the 2019 festival season and we've also recommended some of our most extra vegan lashes to help you finish off your own festival look!
From laid-back retro boho to rock chick or full-on glam, it's fair to say that festival fashion these days is a big deal. Even if you tend to dress fairly conservatively and like to keep your day to day makeup look subtle, festivals provide the ideal excuse to go a bit crazy and try something daring and new.
Pretty much anything goes when it comes to festivals, and the more eye-catching and individual the look the better. There is definitely an art to creating a successful festival makeup look though, and there are also key trends you might want to watch out for too, with 90's throwback and 70's retro being big looks for the 2019 festival season.
Take inspiration from arguably the coolest festival on the planet, Coachella, which happened back in April where festival looks included every from space buns and temporary tattoos to jewelled eyebrows and even sequin/glitter hair partings.

Practice Makes Perfect!
Whatever look you go for, we'd highly recommend practicing before-hand. When you're blending lots of elements together; outfit, makeup, accessories, hair etc. it's worth practising your hair and makeup first so you don't end up looking like you lost a fight with a disco ball, resulting in a festival fail you'll look back on and regret.
With this in mind, we've highlighted some of our best vegan eyelashes that will help to complete your killer festival look.
Be warned, these lashes are best used when you want a look that screams extra!

Other Key Festival Look Considerations
It goes without saying that festivals and glitter go hand in hand, and more is definitely more when it comes to glittery festival looks!
The crucial thing to remember with glitter though is that it can have a devastating environmental impact, so we'd strongly encourage you to make sure you choose biodegradable glitter for your festival look.
Body & Face Gem Bling
Body gems are a really effective and easy way of creating a unique festival look. Companies like The Gypsy Shrine and Funk On do some amazing body and face jewel sets that are easy to apply and come in a vast array of different colours and styles.
With a clear nod to the rave scene, a hot trend for 2019 is face jewels in neon bright colours, definitely not one for shrinking violets!
From brightly coloured hair chalk and wash-out colour sprays to plaits and glitter partings, make sure your hair looks just as amazing as your makeup does. There are loads of imaginative ways you can switch up your look by getting creative with your crowing glory.
