Festival hair and makeup ideas

Easily recreate 3 classic festival looks with our step-by-step guide and the kit you need.

Classic rock chic

For minimal upkeep, opt for the stylishly sleek, rock chic vibe.

Step 1 – Use the Remington Curl and Straight Confidence for a smooth, sleek finish.

Step 2 – Braid your hair, front to back, along with any additional braids, into a ponytail. Wrap a piece of hair around your hair bobble to hide it.

Step 3 – Use 2 shades of grey or black eyeshadow to create your smokey eye. Follow our smokey eye guide to perfect your look.

Step 4 – Finish up with Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner for that cat-like flick.

Magical mermaid

Make some waves with this must-have mythical look.

Step 1 – Brightly colour your hair (if you wish) with a semi-permanent hair dye.

Step 2 – Use nautical coloured eyeshadows on your eyelids. We like Barry M’s glitter cream palette.

Step 3 – Create mermaid features with pink, purple and blue eyeshadows to define your cheekbones.

Step 4 – Use the Remington Proluxe Curling Tongs to create sea-tousled waves.

Step 5 – At the front of your hairline, braid from either side of your parting. Gently pull the braids out for a fuller, more natural feel.

Step 6 – Frame your eyes with face gems and glitter body rush glitter.

Rock it with rainbows

Light-up with our most colourful, eye-catching look.

Step 1 – Apply a mix of Technic Hair Chalks randomly through your hair for a rainbow effect.

Step 2 – Use bright coloured eyeshadows over your eyelids and under your lash line.

Step 3 – With the Remington Proluxe Curling Tong, create full, loose curls.

Step 4 – Frame your face with face gems and glitter to complete the look, using glitter gel fix.

Paint on your base colour and leave to dry. Then paint layers of coloured glitter, concentrating at the tips, for a cascading effect.

All out carnival

Who says you have to stick to one colour? Try half and half, multi-coloured or even neon. Finish your look with nail gems or a top layer of glitter.

Boho chic

Use a bold base colour and leave to dry. Then use different colours to layer lines, dots, chevrons – whatever you want. Bolder the better!
