Coachella 2017 has come and gone, but the iconic beauty trends that graced the dusty desert festival live on in our hearts. From the biggest celebs to beauty bloggers and everyone in between, one makeup look shines as brightly as the interstellar cosmos that inspired it. While fiercely bold, the galaxy makeup trend is wearable, beautiful, and planning to stick around for light years. Thanks to these vegan and cruelty-free products, you can own this look while rejecting cruelty to animals!
To turn your face into a cosmic masterpiece, you’ll want to start with an illuminated base. Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Halo can be mixed with your favorite foundation for a subtle glow or applied alone for a highlight that’s bright enough to see from space.
Use the shimmering, pigmented shadows in the Pacifica Beauty Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette wet or dry to create a galaxy around your eyes, on your cheekbones, across your nose, or wherever you choose. Try starting with the lightest shade, then build depth and detail with swirls of darker shades.
Brighten up your face with stars and sparkles. Add dots, swirls, and shooting stars with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ white eyeliner pencil, then make them shimmer with Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner. Add definition to your eyes and connect the stars to make constellations with Matte Liquid Liner by NYX. The tiny brush gives you unmatched control, making you feel like the Monet of makeup. These details will transform your look from subtle to supernova.
No look is complete without a glowing highlight, and the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette offers the perfect blend of shades that won’t eclipse the rest of your look. Dust the iridescent powders onto high points like your cheekbones, brow bones, and Cupid’s bow, along with the tip of your nose.
Kiss Planet Earth Goodbye
To achieve a celestially chic smile, apply a coat of Axiology’s Phenomenon, a wearable deep blue lipstick that looks surprisingly subtle.
Or make your lips even more lunar with this inspiring look.
To keep your look in place, spritz your finished face with e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set, a setting spray that will keep your galaxy twinkling all day.
There’s no right or wrong way to recreate the trending galaxy makeup look, so let your creativity blast off, and wear it proudly. By using only vegan and cruelty-free products, you’re helping to protect the planet you live on—while looking out of this world.
