The most exciting part about going to a concert or a music festival is to plan your look. Every time I book tickets for such events, I instantly start planning the look I want to pull off. I remember wanting to go for Metallica's concert in Delhi and wondering if I can pull off a leather skirt with super smokey eyes. Then came #Coachella on my Instagram feed and I was sorted. I stalked so many bloggers who tried cool stuff with their make-up. From starry highlighters to rainbow freckles and colourful eyeliners, the experiments were never-ending!
I was so inspired that I decided to present a few looks you can easily pull off for a concert, gig or Coachella! Read on.
Ditching the vanilla eyeliner? Do it right with the perfect colours. Not just your outfit, your make-up should also speak for itself. So, shine like the 'star' that you are and get ready to make heads turn. Use a thin eyeliner brush and a bold eyeliner and use your concentration levels to make those stars rock.
POPxo Recommends: Add a bit of colour to your eyes with NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Eyeliner - Sapphire (Rs 700)
Go all out with highlighter on the inner corner of your eyes and just below your eyebrow. Switch it with some glitter instead of using the gold highlighter and make those eyes pop! Imagine the light hitting your face and your eyes speaking for themselves... that's what we're talking about!
POPxo Recommends: A metallic or foiled eyeshadow will amp up any look, check out the GlamGals Liquid Metal Eyeshadow - Purple (Rs 578)
If you're a fan of the black eyeliner, we're not going to take that away from you. Here's an option to turn the look around by giving it a quirky shape, and make a statement. Don't just stop at filling your lid space, play with shapes and add some glitter to complete the look.
POPxo Recommends: Fill in your lids with black eyeliner and top it off with a metallic black eyeshadow like SeaSoul Diamond Eyeshadow (Rs 550)
Why waste those leftovers from the art and craft project your sibling has been working on this summer? Use some lash glue to stick these shapes on your lips (or eyes, even) to look like you're ready for Coachella!
POPxo Recommends: Apply a long stay lip colour and make most of glue like Provoc Eyelash Adhesive - Clear (Rs 700) to stick on some inspiration!
Make use of those earrings that you've discarded because they're so last season. Braid your hair and hang them around for an effortless experimental look! Hair accessories were never this easy, were they? You're welcome, girl!
Heard of snogged lips? They're the perfect way to tone down your look if you've gone all out on the eyes. But when it comes to music festivals, dab some liquid eyeshadow bit by bit onto your lips and perfect that pout.
POPxo Recommends: L'Oreal Paris Tint Caresse - B07 Lily Blossom (Rs 788) is perfect to create an easy ombre lip!
