Some of us are born different. We see life as a dance and love is our music. The rhythm? That’s the thumping beat of our hearts. If your soul yearns to be immersed in the experience of a music festival, then get ready for MDLBeast Soundstorm. Feel your frequency rise as you dance the night away to the tunes of DJ Snake, Afrojack, and Armin Van Buuren. To take the guesswork out of your festival beauty beat, Grazia is providing you with our own curated festival makeup guide. Here’s our collection of festival-inspired lipsticks to get (and keep) your puckered pout festival ready.
Charlotte Tilbury Dancefloor Princess
Leave it to Charlotte Tilbury to not only create hydrating lipsticks in gorgeous shades but to also give her lipsticks festival-inspired names. Charlotte’s Hot Lips #2 Lipstick in Dancefloor Princess (Dhs180, Charlotte Tilbury) is the perfect nude shade to wear at MDLBeast Soundstorm as you dance the night away. Charlotte has taught us over the years that makeup is magic…and when combined with the music of MDLBeast Soundstorm? This harmonious duo will amplify your night to dynamic proportions.
Armani Beauty Festival Rouge
You can’t download a live music festival nor can you deal with continuously reapplying your lipstick while experiencing one. Armani Beauty has your lips (literally) covered with their Festival Rouge D’Armani Matte Lipstick (Dhs185, bloomingdales.ae). This neutral pink matte lipstick boasts 50% more pigments than traditional matte lipsticks and a long-lasting, ultra-comfort wear. One swipe of this lyrical lipstick and your set to dance the night away.
Laura Mercier Vibe
Are nude lips your vibe? Laura Mercier’s Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick in Vibe (Dhs137, Laura Mercier) is a comfortable matte lipstick with a medium beige nude hue. We love how the natural, my lips-but-better colour of this lipstick. The slim space-saving shape of this lipstick is ideal for those bringing only a clutch along with them. Although to be fair, this long-lasting lipstick won’t need to be reapplied.
Dior Party Red
Your shimmery lips will take centre shade as the festival lights beam their brilliance across them whilst wearing the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in Party Red (Dhs163, bloomingdales.ae). Inspired by LA hotspots, this vibrant high-shine and half-matte hybrid lipstick feels like a balm but perform like a lipstick. Think of Party Red as the fruit-infused mocktail you’ll be sipping on while partying the night away at MDLBeast Soundstorm. Dry lips won’t be a worry as the Lacquer Stick contains a nourishing ultra-light oil and moisturising beeswax.
Shiseido Torch Song
For those looking for an extra pop of colour in their festival beat, try Shiseido’s ModernMatte Power Lipstick in Torch Song (Dhs143, bloomingdales.ae). Much like flame of lighters floating through the air in festivals of yesteryear, Torch Song’s warm orange hue is an ode to the past while living in the moment of today. This full-coverage and ultra matte lipstick is non-drying and gives a subtle blur effect to the lips. We love the unqiue square shaped bullet of the ModernMatte Power Lipstick range because it precisely defines lips without the need of lip liner.
