If you’re not a fan of brightly-coloured eyeshadow and can’t bare the thought of having glitter on your face, then this is the perfect look for you.

Wanna channel your inner mermaid, girl? Then you need this look in your life. You’ll need to get your hands on all of the colourful eyeshadows, glitter and gems for the ultimate stand-out look. To get the mermaid scale look, simply take a pair of fishnet tights and stretch them over your forehead. Then take green and purple eyeshadows and pat them over the tights. Finally, take a little bit of pearlescent highlighter and lightly pat that over the eyeshadows. You’ll be left with a sassin’ mermaid look in no time.

We are obsessed with this simple star makeup look – it’s the perfect alternative to a face full of glitter. Simply apply your makeup as you would usually, then use cosmetic glitter glue to apply stars along your cheeks for a cool-gal festival look.

This look is super-easy and even more effective. Blend a pastel blue eyeshadow along your socket before smudging it along your lash line. Then add a pop of colour to your cheeks with a peachy pink blush and finish with a glittery lip and pastel wig for a festival look that everyone will be talkin’ about.

Girl, if you ain’t afraid of finding glitter in your hair for weeks after the festival, then this is the look for you. Start out with your usual makeup routine, keeping it simply and glowy, before applying all of the glitter to your cheekbones, gems to your forehead and chunky glitter to your hair. Trust us, gal – it’s worth it.
