In everyday life, we tend to adhere to basic beauty tenets that prevent us from looking like we don’t own a mirror or know our way around a hair brush, for music festivals we like to adopt an “anything goes” approach. Just think of how many side-eyes are directed at the lady who dares to walk down the street sporting floral headgear. But when worn while breaking it down to Haim? Zero fucks given. So is the forgiving nature of the summer music festival.
To help you bust out of your comfort zone, we’ve assembled a list of beauty rules you should definitely break when you’re merrily festival-ing this summer. From eyeliner that strays to forgiving frizz, to making yourself over in the image of a human disco ball, these ideas will encourage you to embrace all your childhood fantasies (like running away to the circus, perhaps?). It’s your time to shine.
