Forget festival face paint — this year, it’s all about face and body jewels, baby! Spotted everywhere from Lollapalooza to Osheaga, the look was undoubtedly one of this year’s biggest music fest beauty trends, and we can’t WAIT to get in on it!
But who has time to sit and apply rhinestones with glue and tweezers? Not us, and apparently not Ashley Graver, Tara Mullally or Danielle Bernstein, the creative minxes behind Body Bauble, either. All three are business ladies on the go (Ashley works at a premium music streaming company, Danielle heads up fashion blog WeWoreWhat and Tara has a background in management consulting), and together they found the perfect solution with their super rad line of peel-and-stick jewels for your face and body (squee!).
The idea came to the girls after watching a Givenchy runway show during Paris fashion week, when [they] “realized that face jewelry was quickly becoming the new trend.”
Bringing their collective brainchild to life in the best way possible — in DIY fashion, of course — with Swarovski crystals and a bunch of glue, the girls created something unique in the fact that their line draws inspiration from cultures around the world. In fact, the company’s first collection, Desert Roads, was a tribute to “vast deserts found around the globe.”
“Our pieces are inspired by cultures and people all over the world,” reads the site. “We believe in celebrating and exploring them in a way that embraces their beauty.”
Sounds like a pretty good M.O. to us!
They last for two to three days depending on care (no greasy sunscreens or lotions, ladies!), and you can wear the designs as they come or cut and paste them into your own designs. The gals also recommend stacking the looks: “Doubling up on two pieces is pretty awesome.”
Look for their next collection, featuring all of your favorite sports team colors, set for release in September.
