How to Get Ready for Your Favorite Summer Festivals

It’s summer! It’s time for outdoor parties, backyard events, and of course, all the warm weather festivals you could ask for! Summer is the best time of the year to celebrate anything and everything out underneath the warm, bright sun. From your outdoor techno concerts and fairs to Burning Man, we have some great ideas to help you get ready for your favorite summer festivals.

Screenshot your favorite makeup looks

Festival season is our favorite time to put on makeup, and it’s the perfect time to play with the latest and greatest trends. We’re taught throughout most of our lives to favor the minimal makeup trends. When we go for the more extreme looks, we tend to get stares while walking around (and not always the good kind). Luckily, festival season means that it’s time to go wild with your makeup. Festival makeup is all about “go big or go home”. So, bright colors, over-exaggerated designs, and long, luscious lashes are a must! It’s a time to experiment and play with all those gorgeous looks you’ve seen all over social media- and take them to the next level. Everyone will be bringing their all, so you won’t get any weird looks. Instead, your extreme looks will be celebrated. So, in preparation for your favorite summer festivals, be sure to screenshot your favorite makeup looks to get ready. And if you can, be sure to do a few dry runs to make sure you are happy with your makeup picks on your features.

Festival-worthy outfits

These epic festival looks aren’t just about your makeup, they’re about the full ensemble all together from your makeup to your nails to your hair to… of course… you’re clothes! Perhaps, the most important preparation for your favorite summer festivals is picking beautiful festival outfits. The right outfit takes proper planning. Don’t just think about your top and bottoms or dresses. You also have to think about your styling from the shoes to your jewelry to your hats. And you’ll need many statement making pieces for your best social media photos. After all, half of the fun of festival going is taking Instagram-worthy photos.


After picking your outfit and setting aside the best makeup look to match it, you should decide on the best hair that goes with your overall aesthetic. Your hair can be wild and elaborate or simply down and chicly styled so long as it matches your makeup and clothing. So, scroll through Pinterest and pick out the perfect festival hairstyle for your look.


Nails are another small yet important detail in your overall festival looks. Especially if you’re going to be switching outfits or staying at an event for multiple days, you need a nail look that not only stands out and looks beautiful but that actually goes with all the festival looks you’re brining. To do this, look into pastels and colors that are still bright and statement-making while also being subtle enough to flow between different looks. One way to make a statement with your festival nails is to choose a flattering and standout nail shape such as almond nails or coffin nails.

Hair removal

Lastly, if you’re looking for a longer stay at your festival, it’s important to get rid of unwanted hair that could arise during the event. So, you should think about using an epilator in place of shaving, as it will keep the hair from coming back long enough to enjoy your festival without any permanent change. With an epilator, your hair will take a couple of weeks to come back, which is much longer than it would if you shaved. So, you can enjoy camping out for your festival without having to worry about shaving throughout the experience. Of course, if you’re looking for something more permanent, you can always try laser hair removal prior to your festival, too. But if  you go that route, be sure to get it done plenty of time prior to your festival event in case you have any irritation or side effects.

All in all, summer is the best time of the year to celebrate! After the last couple of years, we need a good celebration. And if your ideal post-covid celebration is a festival, be sure to plan well in advance so you have the best experience possible.
