Festival season is almost upon us. For those of us who enjoy camping, music and the great outdoors, you’ll be starting to think about what to pack – and don’t scrimp on the beauty supplies. Assuming you’ve got wipes and a toothbrush, these are the essentials…
Any product that serves a dual purpose should have a space in your festival kit. This works well for lips but also as a blush or even eye shadow if you’re in a pinch. Somewhere between a balm and a lipstick in consistency, the buildable formula allows you to play with colour and depth.
Use this on both your hair and body, and it does what it says on the tin: adds a sheeny shimmer to you so you’ll appear almost iridescent. It’s lightweight and free from parabens and silicones.
This roll-on oil from Pureskin Lab will help with the one thing that feels so elusive at a festival: sleep. It’s also calming. Just dab it on to temples and pressure points – we predict it will be a godsend. It can also apparently help bring down skin irritation.
These just scream ‘festival’ to us. Choose from different shades (we like pink) and either foiled or sheer, and be prepared to put glitter absolutely all over your face. They’re highly pigmented and dry quickly for easy application – unless you like the disco ball look, just remember, a little goes a long way.
Nothing disguises exhaustion and a hangover better than a tan. And if you’re headed to a festival in the UK, sun certainly isn’t a guarantee. Fake it with this Tan Tour Sculpting Duo – a pearl illuminator for a radiant finish, alongside a self-tan infused mineral bronzer. The powder lasts throughout the day to create a sun-kissed look that is super sculpted, with cheekbones for days.
One thing you won’t want to be doing with a compact mirror and hordes of people around is reapplying your make up. So you need a primer, to make sure once your make up is on, it stays on and won’t budge. Boscia’s contains white charcoal, to control shine and reduce the appearance of pores.
