What comes to mind when you think of festivals? Mud, music and mayhem? It’s true that you’ll need to be on your a-game to look fresh and glam while you’re there.
Covering off all bases when it comes to wind, rain and shine is the surest way to stay chic. And if you’re going abroad, travelling light is an absolute essential. But never fear, you don’t have to pack everything but the kitchen sink to stay prepared. Here’s some of our fresh, festival beauty products.
Gucci Bamboo 30ml Smelling tip-top at a festival might sound like an impossibility, but we dare to disagree! With the right perfume tucked on your person, you can bring a little glamour to every crowd. Gucci Bamboo is one of our personal favourites for summer partying. Elegant, charismatic and feminine, it’s light enough to make you feel carefree and liberated, and bold enough to create that special allure. A handy 30ml bottle is just right for any fun-loving, stylish festival goer.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Purse Spray Go all-out on summer vibes with Marc Jacobs Daisy Purse Spray. What can be better than having a mini fragrance made to slot into your tiniest clutch? Not only does this cute scent save room in your bag, it gets around hand luggage restrictions, and it’s the ultimate girly summer scent. Floral, frilly and fun, it’s deliciously feminine, and light enough to wear all day long.
Malibu sun protection Taking care of your skin is a must, especially if you’re under the rays all day. Even the British sun can pack a punch if you’re out without sun protection. UV sun lotions are the best way to keep your skin protected, youthful and in Malibu’s case, smelling scrumptious. We especially love Malibu’s coconutty allure, and the 100ml Dry Oil and lotions are perfect space-savers.
Yes To Cleansing Wipes Keeping up your normal skin regime during a festival is near to impossible. Luckily, Yes To have the job in-hand. Their luxe cleansing wipes give your skin all the care it needs when you’re living out of a bag. Choose from blueberries or coconut depending on your skin type, and you’ll have cleansed, bright, cared-for skin in a few sweeps.
Tangle Teezer Windswept, bed-headed and wild, festivals are the time to really let your hair down, but that doesn’t mean you have to be content with bushy locks. The original Tangle Teezer is the quickest way to keep your hair sleek and beautiful, without painful, post-partying detangling. They’re also funky, lightweight and compact, so you can pop one into your bag with ease.
Mii BB Cream There’s no time to spend hours in front of the mirror when you’re revelling in the festival atmosphere. An easy-to-apply quick fix is just what you need to brighten and even out your skin tone. The Mii BB Cream does all that and more. This five-in-one cream has SPF protection, a primer to banish imperfections, plus it moisturises and nourishes to give you that beautiful summer glow.
GLITTER DISCO BROWS… Big brows are no longer enough: this festival season you’re going to need glitter, gold and – let’s face it – a lot of guts because the party just moved to your forehead and everyone’s invited. Work this catwalk trend with a just slick of mascara and your pick of a bright or natural lip.
Get the look: Start by combing brows upwards and outwards to create maximum surface area; if you’re going to do it, you may as well really go for it! For a delicate, ethereal look, use a gold-coloured mascara to coat your brows. Wait for it to dry before repeating, for plenty of coverage. If you’d like even more impact, however, create a solid block of colour by drawing a frame around your brow with a gold-coloured liquid eyeliner, before working along your brow from the inner to the outer edge, using the liquid liner to fill in the frame with small, precise brush strokes.
JEWEL POUT… Who cares about practicality when you can have diamond-dusted kissers? Get the look: Slick on a lip gloss – preferably one with a bit of glitter in it to create a multi-layered sparkle. Next, grab a pot of loose glitter, (one designed for eyes is fine) and decant a small amount into the lid or onto a tissue. Use your finger or a lip brush to pat the glitter on to your pout. If any falls on your face or outside of your lip line, you can either gently touch a piece of sticky tape to your skin to lift it off, or use a powder brush to flick it off a bigger area in one go.
STARS, NOT CIRCLES… Partying all night can leave you with some pretty unattractive under-eye circles, so what better way to instantly perk up your face than by completely covering them in miniature stars and multi-coloured sparkles!?
Get the look: Turn your makeup bag into a craft box by stocking up on as many different shades of glitter, types of sparkle and star-shaped stickers and gems as you can possibly get your hands on. If they need a little help to stick, begin with a good layer of glittery gel or mousse eyeshadow – adding the loose sparkle before it sets. For larger gems, false lash glue will help them stay put.
BEAUTY HACKS 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.
