From mega influencer Pony (a.k.a. Park Hye-Min) to nano-influencers you probably haven’t even heard of, here are the best beauty looks you need to bookmark and our notes on how to achieve them just in time for Ultra Music Festival this weekend.
1. Shoot for the stars
Unless you’re a social media recluse, you’d know Korean makeup artist Pony, or Park Hye-Min. We love how simple yet beautiful this looks – shimmery rose gold eyeshadow, cat-eye liner and a blush pink lippie is all it took for this gorgeous creation. If you don’t have a shooting star face sticker, you can use your lash glue to draw out your desired shape and dust on the glitter.
2. A new kind of blue
Korean-American fashion and beauty vlogger Jenn Im matches her eyeshadow to her Prussian blue hair. If you want, you can go for stick-on stars that are all the rage this Coachella. If not, the pink and blue eyeshadows are a stand-out match too. Don’t forget your falsies to add a touch of drama to the look. Keep the rest of your make-up minimal.
3. Bring on the braids
What better time to experiment with braids than during a music festival? Try out American Youtuber Weylie Hoang’s intricate braids – we counted three different types, normal, french and fishtail – at your next festival. Our tip: Keep your makeup simple to let the braids take centrestage, or if you really want to, go easy with the glitter by keeping them small and dotting them above your browbones and cheekbones.
4. Dramatic headdress
Bring on the drama by wearing an elaborate headdress like Thai actress and model Mild (her real name’s Lapassalan Jiravechsoontornkul, in case you’re wondering). And while you’re at it, add on glitter in a C-shaped curve from the top of your cheekbones to just underneath your brow arch.
5. Colour party
If you are the type who’s all about going big, go all out with the colours – and glitter – like influencer-model Celine Lineart and her IG buddy Mary Shay (@marycake). Besides piling on the glitter, make an impression with neon yellow and orange eyeliners. Keep the lips natural with a nude lippie or just lip balm.
6. Sunkissed, naturally
If you’re a fuss-free type of girl like Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio, skip the falsies and glitter, and all that face sticker. Just coat your lashes with mascara and sweep a bronzer on your lids, over your cheeks, and put on a tinted lip balm to make your puckers look healthy and juicy. You don’t even have to wear foundation or concealer if you don’t want to.
7. All about the hairband
Pop star Ariana Grande wore a cute hairband with her signature sky-high ponytail to her set on Coachella. The rest of her makeup is kept simple and neutral – just a touch of burnt orange eyeshadow and matte nude lipstick – to make her false lashes and perfect cat-eye liner stand out.
8. Bun it up
Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine looks fresh-faced with two mini buns and a dewy complexion. Opt for a high-shine lip gloss to compliment the natural, glowy look and remember to keep your brow game strong.
