Festival Makeup Starting at $6

If you think chrome nails are trending, wait until you see what chrome makeup can do for you (and at super affordable prices, too!). Think metallics but on a whole other level. There’s an otherworldly futuristic feel to the holographic multidimensional colors we’re seeing right now–and they’re just in time for festival makeup season. What makes chrome makeup Coachella-worthy? It instantly brings the cool factor because of its ability to change based on the light it reflects. It’s also versatile, too. Believe it or not, chrome makeup can be worn subtly or as a statement. Here’s how to wear chrome the right way on your eyes, cheeks and lips and rock an affordable festival makeup look.


For Chrome Eyes


Notice how all festival makeup tutorials include a chrome eye look or detail? Whether it’s with jewel decals or a metallic shadow, chrome makeup simply catches the right light. It’s a little bit ethereal and a whole lot of pretty, making it the perfect festival makeup BFF. 




Get the look:

Coat eyes in this highly-pigmented duo chrome eyeshadow for a pop of holographic color. This shadow is unique in its duo-chrome, color-changing effect based on your lighting situation. You can use any of the three chrome shades as a graphic liner, wash of color on the lids or as a shimmery accent overtop of your eye makeup. For extra dimension, pat the color onto your lids using your fingers to really concentrate its color.




For Chrome Cheeks:

One of the prettiest ways to incorporate chrome makeup into your beauty routine is with a holographic highlighter. When applied to the high points of the face, like the cheekbones, forehead and nose, chrome highlighter will help lift and elevate those areas and make them pop. Apply it to your collarbone for an extra dose of after-dark shimmer.


Get the look:


 This chrome highlighter has color-shifting tones of pink, gold and lime that give a filter-worthy effect on the skin. And since it reflects light, it also helps blur out redness and imperfections. Using fluffy powder brush, apply the holo highlighter to the tops of the cheeks, inner eye corners, center of the forehead and nose. Apply this lightweight powder highlighter in layers for festival-makeup-level shine and build up to your desired luminous skin effect. Need to tone down the shine factor? Use a loose powder to diffuse it a bit. 



For Chrome Lips:

No chrome makeup look is complete without the finishing touch of a holographic lip gloss. Not only does it give the illusion of a plumper pout, but a chrome finish makes lips stand out even more, thanks to its light-reflecting benefits.


Get the look:

Every statement festival makeup look needs a lip moment and this holo plumper in shade #050 Beam Me Away will steal the show. It serves up fullness, shine and a hint of shimmer. Simply swipe on this glossy and gorgeous plumping gloss with your fav plumping lip liner for a shimmery lip look that gets noticed. You can also use it as a chrome finish topper along with your fav longwearing lipstick for a multidimensional finish. With ingredients like menthol, vitamin E and jojoba oil, this plumping gloss will nourish your lips while plumping them, too.




TIP: Help your festival makeup stay flawless day and night with the help of a finishing spray. You can also use it to refresh your look throughout the night.
