Festival season is fast approaching and I thought it would be the perfect time to put a post together showing you the beauty must-have’s that I could not go to a festival without!
When it comes to looking after your skin at a festival you want to keep things as simple as possible. Fresh running water is simply not going to be possible in the middle of a field of tents so your most simple and easiest option is facial cleansing wipes. These will remove any make-up and freshen up the skin.
Our pick is Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Wipes, £1.49.
At festivals, keeping the beauty routine as simple as possible is key. So, we give you special permission to forget the toners and serums (JUST THIS ONCE) and move straight on to moisturiser.
We really like, Garnier Moisture Match Revitalising Hydrating Gel, £5.99 All that partying can take its toll on your skin. Garnier’s Moisture Match moisturiser will revitalise and wake your skin up again giving an immediate sense of freshness and long-lasting hydration.
You’re going to have no time for make-up so it’s time to skip out many, many steps because quite frankly you do not need it. Your make-up will most likely fall off your face when you get caught in a water-fight anyways.
It’s time to banish the foundation because you simply do not need it! Save time and just apply concealer to area’s which need some attention. I have chosen Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer, £4.19. It’s perfect for covering up under eye darkness and any unwanted blemishes. Simply apply using the dome foot applicator and blend in with your finger.
Now for the fun part. INJECT COLOUR. Festival’s are all about colour and the more the better. This is the ONLY high end product that I think should be brought to a festival simply because the colour payoff is AMAZING and they can be used wet or dry. If you haven’t guessed it already, I am talking about the Urban Decay Electric Palette, £38.00
You can create some really vibrant festival looks super quick with this high pigmented palette. It comes with a double ended brush so application is easy and the mirror is a brilliant size for applying your make-up in.
I created a festival look for Fashion North the other week using this palette:
Colourful make-up must be paired with colourful lashes. the new L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Pop Turquoise, £8.99 is amazing for creating full lashes with a bright turquoise colour.
Add a touch of pink to your lips while keeping them protected with Vaseline’s Rosy Lips, £1.99. This will keep your lips moisturised and protected from the sun while adding a hint of colour.
Last but not least you need a super funky Make-up bag to hold all your beauty essentials. We love this clear neon yellow make-up bag from ASOS, £10.
We hope you enjoy the festival season don’t forget to tweet us your festival pictures to #nbbfestival
