Coachella marks the kickoff to music festival season and it's right around the corner! Music festivals are synonymous with summer and the OFRA Team is ready for some much-needed sun. Thousands flock to festivals like Coachella to let loose and listen to talented music artists, however, the real fun lies in the people-watching. Fashion and beauty trendsetters are everywhere and they don't hold back the creativity.
Beauty bloggers are perhaps the best source of inspiration for creative festival makeup. We picked our favorite Coachella-inspired Instagram looks past and present from some of our favorite beauty gurus.
As if faux freckles couldn't get any cuter, glitter freckles are now a thing. Take a taupe brown eyeliner pencil (try our Universal Eyebrow Pencil) and scatter dots around nose and undereyes where freckles naturally appear, making sure to create different sizes as no two freckles are alike. Then, take your favorite gold shadow (Gold Rush) and spray it with a Makeup Fixer to intensify the pigment. Draw onto existing faux freckles for a two-dimensional shimmer look.
@bybrookelle is the queen of festival makeup. Seriously, scroll through her Instagram feed for endless inspiration. Just ask Cover Boy James Charles, who recently recreated her look on
Maybe minimalism is more your thing and you'd prefer to play it safe. You really can't go wrong with a warm summer eye look and a cute hair accessory. @Liza_Lash used the Radiant Eyes Palette to create her stunning festival-ready eye makeup. "Bliss" and "Plastic", two shades included in this palette, also make incredible highlighters. Finish with your perfect nude liquid lipstick.
How could we forget the ever-popular unicorn trend? OFRA's Wonderland liquid lipstick has been a favorite among the unicorn-obsessed and it's perfectly on trend for festival season. Wonderland is a vibrant pink-purple duo-chrome (two-in-one lip color) with a blue undertone and metallic finish. It will actually make you believe in unicorns.
Desi Perkins can do no wrong. This super glowy and bronzed look is all about the skin. Use the On the Glow Palette to strategically highlight and contour, adding warmth and dimension to the face. Top with OFRA's pigmented lip gloss in "Natural" and add a few creative accents like Desi did. Simple yet festive.
