the best beauty looks from burgerama

our (accidental) beauty diary

Attending Burgerama IV—one of the many music showcases Burger Records throws each year—was just like going to any other big music festival. Except, on like, Valium. What I mean by that is simple: It was really chill. Held at the Observatory in Orange County, California, the two-day fest was an undeniable vortex of youthful energy bouncing all over the place. It reeked of sunscreen, body odor, marijuana, and beer; and it was magical. During the weekend I spent there, I browsed the sea of teenyboppers and 20-somethings for interesting-looking girls to photograph (I understand that sounds creepy, but my intentions were pure), and accidentally documented a street-style beauty photo diary without fully realizing what I was doing. What I learned was: Ombré-colored roots, glossy red lips, and glitter under the eyes make for some pretty killer accents—and we're taking note.
