The Meadows Music Festival in Queens is one of those rare New York events that pulls a lot of really down-to-earth people together for a weekend. No pretension there—just good vibes and equally good style. This year, it was all about effortless beauty that really popped. We hit the pavement of Citi Field in search of looks that were aspirational, but also attainable. We found it in spades. Who knew matte lipstick could look so unique?
