Face and Body paint

Makeup design by Sam

Oh, we love a bit of face and body paint, it’s just so colourful and vibrant and of course that smell reminds us of our childhood!  Animal Prints have always been popular choice at festivals as well as Ibiza parties.

Tribal designs are great too and rather fitting when you’re spending a day or two at one with nature in a field!


Glitter Embellishments

Glitter designs by Shiv

Well these are just HUGE right now and they are so pretty and perfect for your festival beauty look!  A burst of glitter and sequins would get anyone in the mood for a festival!  There are lots of companies out there selling beautiful face glitter and this can be applied with vaseline or similar to keep it in place although the sequins might need a bit of a stronger hold of eyelash glue.

It is of course possible to create a lovely embellishment around your own eye, alternatively you can leave it to us and we can create a beautiful design for you to compliment your outfit and personality! 😉


Henna design by Alpa

Henna has been around for centuries and isn’t only for religious or culture purposes.  You could have a lovely contemporary design on your arms, back or torso which will stay with you long after the festival is over!

You are likely to find Henna Artists at a few markets if you are out and about but as part of the MUA London team we do have 2 fabulous Henna Art specialists who would be more than happy to adorn you with the creative henna designs!

Metallic Tattoos

Metallic Tattoos were first featured in Vogue a couple of years ago and after being spotted on a few celebs after that they took to the shelves of high street stores very quickly!  Metallic Tattoos are loved by everyone at all the events we work at and are perfect for your festival beauty look as they are hard wearing and won’t come off.

Hair Chalk

Another fabulous trend that is popular at events for kids and adults alike is hair chalk!  It’s even cooler looking when you can create multi coloured braids with them!

Hair chalk is essentially Artist Chalk that can be rubbed into the hair to create anything from rainbow or ombre hair to just a few coloured streaks.

Flower Crowns

Pre-made flower crowns can be purchased online or in high street stores but if you want to go for the real deal then you could have a local florist make you one!  Personally, we love to create our floral braiding and flower crowns by styling them into you hair so you and your pretty flowers are at one!



So here are some festival beauty ideas for you!  If you’re creatively inclined then you may be able to create some of these yourself but if you need any help at all and would rather take the stress away then the Make Up Artist London Team is just a phone call  or email away!

Have a fab time festival-goers!
