Coachella has officially kicked off the festival season and we can’t wait for them to start here in the UK. We’re so ready for glitter roots, sunkissed skin and dancing the weekend away with our friends ‘ so to get you prepped for the festival season, we’ve put together our top beauty hacks to make the weekend easy-peasy!
Ditch The Glass
Taking your favourite fragrance to a festival can be a little bit tricky sometimes with most festivals having a no glass policy, meaning everything needs decanting into a plastic bottle beforehand, but luckily for us, some of our favourite scents are available in plastic bottles already. Gucci Bamboo and the fruity Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Mists are perfect for this, so pick up one of these and say goodbye to decanting!
Keep It Au Naturelle
No one likes feeling hot and sweaty in the Summer, especially for an entire weekend with minimal shower facilities. Swap your foundation for a tinted moisturizer with SPF protection to avoid any cakey mess and keep your pores clear. We love the Bourjois BB cream Bronzing Cream which keeps skin bright and soft with a healthy sunkissed glow.
Create a staple make-up bag for the weekend and opt for colours that you can pair with anything. A perfect pink or vibrant red lipstick can work with any look, so go for the one that suits you the most. Glitter make-up is always a favourite each festival season, so if you prefer to make a statement on your lids, choose a silver or gold to last you the weekend. Stuck for where to start?

Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse!
Your usual cleansing routine will go out of the window when you’re too busy partying, but try not to forget to clean your face before going to sleep. Witch have amazing Cleansing and Toning Wipes with witch hazel extracts to leave skin clean and refreshed, and they can double up for other uses too such as freshening up in between showers to save packing space.
Keep Hair Refreshed
Keeping your hair looking fab all weekend long can prove difficult if you wash your hair quite often. Make the most of your style by starting off with a wavy look, then as the weekend goes on try some boxer braids to hide any oily sections. The Osmo Day Two Styler Dry Shampoo is our hair savoir during the festival season to add body and refresh roots. If you really want to get into the festival spirit, add some glitter roots to your look too!
Do Not Fear Breakouts!
Breakouts can happen very suddenly but if you are ready for them and know how to treat them everything will be just fine. Read through our article on how to treat a sudden acne breakout for everything you need to know!
