Festival Beauty Essentials

Mud, wellies, music and a whole lot of glitter: yes, festival season is upon us once more! Whether you’re heading to a 1-day event, or going all out for Glastonbury; you’ll need to get your festival beauty game nailed. We’ve got you covered with our editor approved festival essentials.

Get Set, Prep

The first step in our festival routine? The faux glow that will hide a multitude of sins all weekend long. Vita Liberata’s pHenomenal Tan lasts an incredible 2-3 weeks, giving a flawless, natural bronze colour. With exceptional staying power, it’ll keep you perfectly golden throughout any amount of mud, sweat and rain.

Use Protection

Sunburn just isn’t cool – and neither is the peel that comes after a weekend in the blazing sun. On the off-chance there happens to be glorious weather at any of this year’s UK festivals make sure you’re well protected by slathering on high quality sun screen. Supergoop’s formulas are not only extremely effective at blocking sun’s harmful rays, but also boast skin enhancing ingredients. Apply Supergoop’s Everyday Sunscreen to exposed areas and Daily Correct CC Cream to the face for flawless protection.

Get Colourful

Take inspiration from those endless Pinterest festival inspo shots and get creative with your makeup. These brand new Sketch Sticks from Illamasqua are so much fun – draw and doodle dots, lines, flowers and more on the face and body for the ultimate Coachella inspired looks. The long wear formula will stay put all day long, too!

Go Sparkle

No festival look would be complete without a splash of sparkle. Lit Cosmetics‘ range of glitters come in different size cuts in the most amazing range of shades. Apply to cheekbones, eyelids and even sprinkle into roots to disguise that less-than-fresh hair do.
