How to Wear the Temporary Tattoo Makeup Trend

Pictures of MUA’s with temporary tattoo makeup on their faces are sweeping the internet. But there are more kinds than just flowers.

Temporary tattoo makeup makes sense because it’s much easier than spending hours meticulously painting designs on your face with liquid eyeliner. Temporary tattoos are plentiful, cheap and come in a variety of themes, such as floral, outer space, metallic, bohemian, animals, music, science and more. The look is ideal for music festivals where anything goes.
