Festival season is here - and whether it’s the music, the fashion, the food or the beauty you love, we all have the festival feels! So for a no-fuss beauty routine in a 2-man tent, what do you stash in your makeup kit? Brace yourself girls, it’s time to keep it simple. (*sob *) You may love spending 45-minutes getting ready for a night out - but at festivals, the pace is frenzied and you have to pack light. Who wants to be stuck in a tent perfecting their brows with all the great gigs out there? So to get back to basics festival-style, we give you our ultimate beauty survival kit – for more fest and prepping less.
Whatever the event, lush lashes are a must. Keep it simple with a brush of mascara to bring out the eyes. Tip: use waterproof mascara in case you crash without cleansing (tsk, tsk): panda eyes are never on-trend! Or go faux with a pair of false lashes, for eye style that's on point -- rain or shine.
This is an area where you can totally go to town. It's all about the lips this festival season, with juicy pops of red, pink and coral to stand out in the crowd. Lipstick is your self-expression weapon for super simple makeup – keep it minimal on the base and eyes, but let the lips shine, switching up the color each day to reinvent your look. Luscious!
When it comes to nails (just like with lips), the brighter the better. If messing with polish and chipped manicures makes you scream, why not go faux before going away? Or fake it ‘til you make it with nail art wraps in Aztec or floral prints for super easy festival chic. All about the gel nails? Our UV polishes react with natural light to set and seal optimum color - so you'll have salon-perfect nails for the whole festival!
The necessary extras
There’s a few more essentials we couldn’t let you leave without: a hat is vital for hair drama - stick on a fedora and go - or try every girl’s best friend, dry shampoo, for freshness and added volume. And cleansing wipes, which could totes turn into a love-hate relationship: love the ease/versatility, and hate yourself for not packing more! Always carry a lip balm at all times for your crowd selfie-perfect pout. Finally, relive your 90’s youth: a few diamond cheek gems maybe (or go bold with the glitter, we won’t judge...).
Pack it up in your fave Primark makeup bag (the perfect size for prettifying pieces) and you’re good to go – festival season, we’re all over you!
