Forbidden Fruit is on this weekend! It's time for some festival makeup inspiration

Forbidden Fruit takes place this weekend paving the way for lots more festivals over the coming months. It's time to get thinking about your look with some festival makeup inspiration.

Festival makeup can be as tame or as out-there as you like. We love to get a bit creative for this time of year because let's be honest, there are not many occasions when it's cool to wear glitter all over your face or stick feathers to yourself.

  • Metallic Touch

This first look is quite simple but gorgeous and not too crazy. You could change up the eyeshadow colour and use any bright colour smoked out underneath your eyes. All you need is some gold pigment (we reckon MAC gold pigment €22 would do the job) mixed with a tiny drop of something like Fix+ Spray €22 to make it liquid and paint on your lip and under your eyes.


  • Metallic Eyeliner

Use the same tools as you would for the first look to create a really cool eyeliner with metallic pigments. Go for gold, silver or copper for a beautiful festival eye makeup.


  • Bindis

These are so easy to just stick on your face in whatever pattern you like. They are so pretty and add colour and sparkle to your look instantly. There are loads to choose from on



  • Glitter

The next look uses glitter - our favourite festival accessory. NYX have a gorgeous new face and body glitter range and they also do a glitter primer to apply it with.


  • Dots

The last one is so so easy, anyone can do it. All you need is face paint and a skinny paint brush. Make a pretty pattern with different sized dots. Effective and pretty.



Would you try out any of these looks or are they too daring for you?
