1. The full-glam festival look

Lets start off on a high note with this absolutely stunning festival face. This ain't for the faint-hearted but you're sure to turn heads with this full-glam makeup design. Our Tarte Shape Tape foundation review shows that it's a perfect product for this look as it's long lasting and super buildable!

To get this look we suggest using the Tarte Toasted palette for all those warm tones and the ABH Aurora glow kit to get that pink and orange glow!

2. The "subtle daisy" look

This face dances on the more subtle side of things but is still super-perfect for a festival. If you're not one who wants to go full glam but still look the part then try this out.

All you need is white and yellow eyeliner. We recommend the Sephora Collection Colourblock Liner that comes in both yellow and white

3. The glitter-liner look

A big trend coming around the corner at the moment is colourful liner. It's bold and beautiful and will look absolutely rocking at Coachella.

Achieve this bold liner look with our favourite NYX Liquid Crystal Liner, which comes in a whole array of colours to choose from!

4. The "vibrant sunset" look

Why not match the stunning summer sunset at Coachella? Well with this vibrant sunset effect you totally can!

It's definitely a bold face but a festival is where you can play around with makeup!

Achieve this bright shadow look with the warmest palette in the game. Check out the 35O palette from Morphe that has all the red and orange tones you'll need.

5. The "something blue" look

If you're still a bit new to using lots of colour in your makeup then fear not. You can ease into it.

This pop of blue on the lower lash line gives your makeup something more. Add some gems and your festival look is down!

Get this ultra mermaid effect with the totally affordable Models Own Aquaproof palette.

6. The less-is-more look

No one said you have to go full glam for a festival and sometimes less is totally more. Try out this subtle (but perfect) face for Coachella with a full-coverage base, but light eye makeup and a nude lip. If you are feeling crazy, add a few subtle gems around your eyes.

For a foundation that lasts through hours and hours of dancing, but still looks natural, we recommend the beautyblender Bounce Liquid Whip Foundation

7. The pop-of-colour look

Another look that's not for the faint-hearted, this is for those who want to WOW their way through the festival – and that you will.

Match your makeup with your gems for an extra bit of fire power.

Embrace this burst of colour with the Huda Beauty Obsessions palette that has everything you could possibly need.

8. The all-about-the-hair look

Having an all-round perfect ensemble is about balance. Your face doesn't need to be the main attraction, it can be your hair too!

A simple makeup look with some loud locks is definitely a good option for this festival season.

You can achieve a colourful hair look that isn't permanent with the L'Oréal Range of semi permanent wash out dyes that come in pink, blue, purple and a range of other shades.

9. The "face tattoo" look

Now this is one for those who feel like they're a little makeup-challenged or they just don't want to waste time getting ready when they could be boogying on the dance floor.

Getting your hands on some gold tattoos to put on your face is simple and oh-so-effective.

eBay has a wide range of flash tattoos and gold tattoos in multiple designs to choose from!

10. The gems-and-glitter look

This one is for all my beautifully extreme girls out there – a look that's everything rolled into perfection.

From the glitter to the gems, and the flower crown to the eye makeup, this vibrant ensemble is the ultimate in festival.

Bejewel your face easily with the Gypsy Shrine Moon Child jewels.
