How To: Easy Coachella Glitter Makeup Tutorial!

Itching to try out that sparkly festival glitter application you’re seeing across Pinterest/Tumblr/Instagram/every-single-social-media-app-ever? These six cute little glitter pots are about to bring you a whole heap of rainbow fun this festival season!


Base: foundation, sunscreen, or bare skin with a primer




Glitter face paint (from craft stores) OR glitter and a sticky base: like lipgloss or vaseline

Lots of glitter (we used: iridescent, blue, silver, gold, deep red, purple, wine and pink)


Stick on diamantes/stars


  1. Get your base covered. Foundation, sunscreen or bare skin with a primer. Whatever your most comfortable with! Keep in mind the weather. Festivals in summer can get sticky and in winter can get rainy.
  2. Do the rest of your usual makeup – blush or contouring if you’ve got mad skills.
  3. Use your glitter face paint (or vaseline/lipgloss) to make half moon shapes around your eyes, then add in a triangle shape on your forehead.
  4. It’s time to get glittery! To get this magical mermaid effect, we’re going to layer our glitter! We used a white/iridescent colour for the base, then added blue and silver on top, gold on the outer edges, and pink glitter to the inner edges.
  5.  Next, use your tweezers to add diamontes to your face! If you need some ideas, sticking them along your brow is always a winner. But feel free to get creative!
  6. Now do you favourite eyeliner (we can’t resist the classic winged look) and add mascara.
  7. Pop on some lippie and you’re ready to go!
