Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Prime your face. As with any face makeup look, your first step should be applying primer, as this can help create a smooth base for the rest of your makeup application.
Step 2: Begin creating your glow. Instead of reaching for a heavier foundation that will likely melt off during all the dancing and high temps, work with what you’ve got and accentuate your natural skin tone with a highlighter lotion. Simple squeeze some onto a makeup blender and stipple it into your face for a light-handed, natural look.
Step 3: Chisel your cheekbones. While strobing is definitely a makeup trend in and of itself, one of our favorite contouring approaches is to use a glowing bronzer powder. Use a fan brush to dust some bronzer into the hollows of your cheek to really define your cheekbones. If you want to accentuate your bone structure further, dust a bit more bronzer along the upper edge of your forehead, down the ridges of your nose, and along the outermost edge of your jawbone. Blend, blend, blend!
Step 4: Add additional glow. There’s no such thing as too much highlighter at a music festival. Using the same fan brush as with your bronzer (just be sure to wipe off any extra product), dust some of powder highlighter along your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose. From there, use a fluffy eye shadow brush to dust some of the lightest color into the inner circles of your eyes.
Step 5: Accentuate your eyes. Sometimes when you get your glow on it can be difficult to focus attention on any other part of a face. To help your eyes tie into the look, line them with black eyeliner and swipe on a few coats of mascara. The best part about this ultra-eye catching eye makeup look? It won’t sweat off or budge when you tear up your because you're so pumped to see your favorite performer live. Yep, defintely a necessity.
