It’s almost time for Afro Punk–the time of the year where all of the cool black kids and cool friends of cool black kids get dressed up in their best street wear to go stroll and cruise the streets of Brooklyn (being sure to walk in slow motion so that everyone can see), gorge themselves on calorie-heavy, envy-inducing food from fancy food trucks and out of towners pretend to have Brooklyn-accents just for the weekend (because who does not love a Brooklyn accent?)

When going to an alternative music festival, you have a plethora of beauty choices, of course. You can go with your regular beat face or you can step outside of the box and go with something a bit more…alternative. Afro Punk makeup (or any music festival makeup) should be a little fun if you ask us. This year though, not only are we feeling fun and alternative, for Toccara’s look we were also feeling a little retro. Her smokey and a perfectly messy black eyes and her simple but beautiful African inspired tribal white makeup says “festival ready.” The high waist jeans and the Jessie Owens vintage tee also bring this look home–because a pulled together Afro Punk is all about the details. #ToAfroPunkAndBeyond
