Sweet Scene: Prepping Your Look for Music Festival Season

Sweet Scene: Prepping Your Look for Music Festival Season

Music Festival Season Looks

Festival season is here again and beckoning us to let go of our cares and celebrate self-expression at its fullest. If you’re planning on attending some of the season’s top events, whether Coachella in April, Firefly in June, or Lollapalooza in August, use this guide to begin prepping your music festival beauty looks.


Get your waterproof, smudge-proof makeup at Beauty Bakerie and make sure your only concern is having fun and catching all your favorite line-ups (never smearing or smudging makeup).


Dark and Dramatic Goth

If you’re more hard metal and rock n’ roll than pop, channel your inner dark angel with deep, broody makeup. Paint the lips in a deep merlot using the smudge-proof She’s Just Jelly Lip Whip for unmistakable drama. Because music festivals are all about going all out, don’t stop there. Swipe a hard metallic Lick the Spoon on the lids and line the eyes with a dramatic wing of Black Milk Gelato, our waterproof gel eyeliner.

Bohemian Beauty

The flower child bohemian look is a classic for music festivals. Paint the lips in a pretty petal pink, like our Versailles Lip Whip, and highlight the lids with a soft tan Pancake cream eye shadow and a swirl of Crumb Cake on the crease. Continue that bronze pop on the lower lash line with Crumb Cake EyesCream. Line those fluttery lashes with a pop of color using our long-lasting eyeliner in Lemonade Stand!

Preppy Pop Sugar

If your idea of playing at a music festival is keeping it light and carefree, then a bright and sunny preppy look is your ticket in. Start with a Barbie-pink lip in Berry Pop, and make your brown, green or blue eyes sparkle with a sugar-sweet shimmery peach, in Sherbet. The secret to a “I-just-woke-up-like-this” look is to lightly smudge a soft eyebrow gel along the lash line, like Auburn, for just the right amount of natural color.

Fearless Raver

If you’ll be surrounded by neon colors and strobe lights, then follow suit with over-the-top neon makeup. Go bold with a bright neon orange on the lids using our Mandarin GELato as an eye shadow, and brighten the eyes and make them look larger with So Marshmallow on the lower waterline. Give your eyes depth with a black or brown eyeliner. Finish your look with a metallic blue lip in Space Cake (because, of course), and add some essential sparkle on the eyes and above the brows with our Silver Sprinkles. Use the Sprinkles Glue for effortless application directly on the eyelids or face.

Haute Hippie

Bring it back to 1969 Woodstock, the Mother of all music festivals, with our hippie inspired look. Bring out your natural pout with an earthy metallic Crème de la Crumb. Our Cookie Dough EyesCream on the lids adds subtle sun-kissed sheen, and Galactic Frosting cream eye shadow brings out your upper crease. Enhance your subtle sweet look with raspberry liner on the upper lash line with Belgian Biscotti.


Our waterproof, smudge-proof makeup combined with your favorite beauty look will be your ticket to a flawlessly fearless music festival season this spring and summer.


Once you’ve perfected your festival lips and eyes, highlight your cheekbones with a skin matching Illuminator, and bake your look with a Flour Setting Powder to combat sweat and smudging.
