This is Afropunk Festival’s 11th year of celebrating black arts and culture. It was held in Brooklyn over this past weekend, bringing together thousands of people who came to see art and fashion and listen to music. Aside from the obvious festival appeal, thousands of people attend for the purpose of immersing themselves in a welcoming, positive, and totally inclusive environment. (By the way, “thousands” isn’t an overstatement at all. According to MSNBC, this year’s festival brought together an estimated 60,000 people… so far. It just keeps getting bigger and better.)

As always, this year’s event had no shortage of amazing beauty inspo. From understated makeup to face paint and neon accents, it had a little bit of everything. Instagram is proof of this, as so many of our favorite accounts showcased their own take on Afropunk style. That’s why we decided to round up over favorite Instagram posts straight from the festival.
