Despite loving festivals, and spending the majority of our monthly pay cheque on them each year, we're inevitably still a little horrified by the OTT festival make-up that's more than extra. Like, how could glitter go that wrong?

The festival make-up fear is real.

Which is why we've rounded up the festival make-up ideas you could, and should, be working when you're rocking around a field, sipping on a plastic cup of cider and feeling like world peace really could happen if we all just learnt to love (and wear way more glitter).

Say hello to Coachella make-up inspo, and goodbye to festival make-up FOMO.

To complete the look, see our favourite festival hairstyles.
