Festival Beauty Trends

April 21, 2016

Thanks to Target for sponsoring this post.



With festival season right around the corner, it is one of the most exciting times for fun and unique fashion and beauty trends.  As someone who isn’t heading off to Coachella, I’m constantly browsing Instagram, Snapchat and all other social media to see what fun trends are hitting the festival scene!  Last year it was all about the flash tattoos and fishtail braids, but this year things are a bit more simple when it comes to the major festival trends.  This summer it’s all about the strong brow, natural skin and earthy tones in makeup and beauty.  I know there’s no surprise when I say that Target is my favorite place to shop for new beauty items, so I’m sharing a few of my latest finds to embrace the festival trends!

  • Earthy Shadow – I’m normally someone who totally reaches for neutral toned eyeshadows, regardless of the season. It’s hilarious looking at my eye palettes, because the neutral shadows are always the first ones gone!  With festival season upon us, I’m totally loving the earthy tones for my eyes and this NYX Go-To palette is my go-to option for a budget-friendly palette.  With a nice winged liner {like this NYX one}, you’ve got a perfect eye look that’s festival-ready!
  • Natural Skin – When it comes to face makeup, I tend to tread the line between “full coverage flawless skin” and “natural finish”. It definitely depends on the day which side I fall on, but for festival season, the trends all center around making the skin look perfect, dewy and natural.  So much of this trend is all about the skin prep, which is why I’m all about the La Roche Posay sunscreens and CC creams with SPF.  It may sound dramatic, but the biggest skin enemy when it comes to aging and wrinkles is the sun!  That’s why it’s SO critical to use a high-quality sunscreen to keep your skin protected {without the risk of breakouts}.
  • Bold Eyebrows – Lastly, one of my favorite trends this season {and the past little while} is a well-defined, bold brow. I am obsessed with the L’oreal Brow Plumper for every type of brow, since it helps fill in sparse areas and keep stray hairs in place.  For those looking for a pencil/gel duo, the Pixi Natural Brow Duo is the perfect choice for the festival heat and sweat.

For those who may not be heading off to Coachella this weekend, it’s still SO easy to embrace the festival beauty trends!  Be sure to check out Target for all of their amazing new beauty products and brands that are festival-ready.  Plus, follow along @TargetStyle for all of the fabulous #TargetStyle posts.
