While there are quintessential components to every festival look, like boho maxi dresses, denim cut-offs, and cowboy boots, we'd be remiss not to mention that your hair, nails, and makeup can make the outfit. With spring and festival season officially in full gear, there are tons of statement-making beauty trends to try right now. Like Y2K beauty, coquette makeup, bold color washes, embellished eyes, and even faux freckles are a thing.

With its roots in the early nineties, we've also seen the Nirvana rock-influenced revival of the bright blonde choppy bob blonde (yep, it's called the Nirvana) as showcased by Sydney Sweeney and Nicole Kidman. As for nails, they're also out to make a serious maximalist statement courtesy of aura and chrome nails.

With Coachella just days away take your festival beauty cue from Sofia Richie Grainge's makeup artist Neil Scibelli who confirmed that tie-dye and peaked cat eyes, 90s lips, high-shine skin, and sculpted blush are all in. Or head on over to TikTok to see that when it comes to festival beauty there really is no limit.

Here are five TikTok-approved beauty and makeup sensations to elevate your festival look and ensure you won't go unnoticed.

Beauty mavens like Aaliyah Jay have recently gravitated to rosy cheeks and with the coquette aesthetic in full swing, the traditional blush trend is here to stay.

Y2K Makeup

The Y2K trend dominated our shopping carts for the past two years, and it doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. Makeup in the early aughts was simple in essence, but creators have added a refreshed approach to the trend with aspects like glittery eyes to perfectly compliment your festival outfit.
