Reading time 5 minutes

If you, like us, are heading to the third edition of Ultra Singapore this holiday weekend, consider this the only festival beauty guide you need. 

Even if festivals aren't your thing, who can resist these super fun beauty items? Glitter hair foams, colourful mascaras, holographic highlighters — we have them all. Subtlety is not the name of the game here. We're going loud, proud and we're definitely standing out from the crowd.

IGK Foamo Holographic Hair Foam

No more FOMO; you can easily recreate the glitter roots trend that blew up on Instagram during Coachella. The IGK Foamo Holographic Hair Foams are so easy to use that you don't have to just stick to the roots. Available in two shade-shifting colours, Meteor (blue-purple) and Moon Rock (pink-teal) apply just like any hair mousse and can be worn from root to end. 

The best part? The Foamos work on any hair colour so you can have pink or blue hair without any bleaching. 

Available at Sephora stores and sephora.sg

Kat Von D Beauty 24-HR Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade

When better to try coloured brows than at a music festival? Kat Von D Beauty's 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade is a sweat-proof (i.e. music festival-proof) formula that comes in 16 shades. They can be worn as they are or mixed for customised colours. Get creative and create ombre brows or even rainbow brows if you're feeling adventurous. 

Available at Sephora stores and Sephora.sg

YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture

Put down the boring black mascara and throw a pop of pink onto those peepers with the fuschia YSL Mascara Vinyl Couture. Or emerald green, or electric blue. These coloured mascaras can complement so many different eye looks from bold black cat-eye liners to the most elaborate works of eyeshadow art. For an extra glam touch, layer on one of the glitter top coats in black or gold. 

 

Available at YSL Beauty boutiques and counters

Urban Decay Disco Queen Collection

This is the highlighter duo that will reflect the warm rays of the setting sun and then glow well into the night. In other words, the Urban Decay Disco Queen collection was made for an outdoor music festival. The pink-blue shade-shifting pigments on the Holographic Disco Stick give cheekbones a transluscent sparkle, which can be amped up with the Disco Queen Holographic Highlight Powder for an intense, flawless duochrome finish.

Available at all Sephora stores, online at sephora.sg and Urban Decay Freestanding stores at Takashimaya S.C., Ngee Ann City, VivoCity, and Bugis Junction

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment

There are endless options for festival-ready lips. But what really matters is the longevity of the product, because trying to reapply lipstick in a crowd of crazy partygoers is a real challenge. Our pick is the NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment — a tried and true all-nighter. It's matte, lightweight, very pigmented and will lock on to your lips till the last beat drops. With 20 shades to choose from, there's definitely a Powermatte for any festival look.

PS. NARS is also releasing 5 new Powermatte Lip Pigment shades this July.

Available at NARS boutiques and counters.

Fenty Beauty Body Lava Body Luminiser and Fairy Bomb Glittering Pom Pom

Couldn't get a tan in time for the festival? Fenty Beauty's got your bronzy glow covered with the much raved about Body Lava Body Luminiser. Light-diffusing micropearls give skin a sexy sun-soaked sparkle — but if that's still not enough shimmer, the Fairy Bomb Glittering Pom Pom should do the trick in coating your limbs with a super-fine hyperreflective glitter veil. 

Available at Sephora stores and Sephora.sg
