The natural, free-spirited ethos of bohemian style doesn't stop with the clothes. Hair and makeup are an important part of your overall look, and there is a distinctive bohemian makeup style that looks beautiful with flowing boho clothes.
To help you out, we've pulled together a selection of beauty looks from some amazing lookbooks and editorials. There are so many beauty looks that could be considered 'bohemian', but these sum up the laidback, natural vibe the best.
A tan is always perfect for bohemian style. Forget a bright orange glow -think a natural sunkissed, beachy hint of color. Natural makeup is best for bohemian style, with lightweight foundation (or perhaps none at all). The strong, but still natural, brows in this makeup look are a perfect example of bohemian beauty.
This is a great example of slightly more sexy, sultry bohemian makeup. The skin is still very natural, with no heavy foundation of contouring, and a few freckles peeking through. Peachy cheeks and lips add a subtle touch of color. Dark eyeliner smudged all around the eyes is smoky without being too heavy.
For more festival-appropriate bohemian makeup, don't be afraid to go crazy! Cover your face with silver stars and sparkles, pile on the glitter, and try some body jewels. For the ultimate in bohemian style, keep the rest of your makeup simple and natural.
This is a perfect example of the natural skin that's so popular in bohemian makeup. Model Elsa Hosk is freckled and sun-kissed. The rest of her makeup is simple and pretty, with brushed-up natural brows and soft brown eyeshadow instead of a harsher smoky eye.
Once again, this bohemian makeup look features natural, glowing skin. Peachy-gold lips and cheeks are pretty and delicate but still very natural. In this look, the focus is on incredible lashes and strong brows. Get a similar look with a light smudge of dark kohl on your lashline and in the waterline.
