Got a festival in the diary this summer? Make sure you consult our must-have beauty guide before you go! From dry shampoo to sun spray, we've got it covered.
Following festival-packed weekends, the only thing that’s going to keep you looking vaguely alive by Monday morning is a slick of Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On. A soothing roller ball that instantly cools and reduces puffiness, you might feel half-asleep, but at least you won’t look it!
Starting to get that ‘too-many-late-nights’ look? There’s no better way to wake up tired complexions than with a rosy pop of colour. Bobbi Brown’s pot rouge is an instant pick-me-up, giving an enviable rosy glow to cheeks and subtle tint to lips. Plus, it’s a multi-tasker, which always helps out when packing that festival backpack!
Beat the grease and make your freshly styled ‘do last longer with a leave in powder like this one from Bumble and Bumble. If you’re not going to be washing your hair for a few days – whether you’re at a summer festival or just camping – definitely invest in some of this wonder-product to combat the signs of unwashed hair. And it doesn’t just absorb grease to give you that freshly washed look – it also adds extra volume, keeping your hair looking blow dried and luscious for days!
Festival season equals late nights, varying levels of sobriety and scummy showers, none of which bode well for the daily beauty regime. Ensure your skin remains squeaky-clean, no matter how many days you’ve been knee-deep in mud, with Yes to Cucumbers’ Facial wipes. These refreshing towels will remove make-up, sweat and other festival grub in one quick sweep, with cooling cucumber extract, soothing aloe vera and green tea to treat your skin despite being on the go. They can even double up as wet wipes when the trek to the showers seems a little too much.
Fight the effects of bad weather by packing Fudge’s Gloss De-Frizzing Serum in your bag. A beauty weapon against the elements, it protects your locks against environmental damage while leaving a glossy shine.
A couple of days into your festival experience, and while you may still
be going strong, your skin can quickly start to suffer. Deviating from your regular regime can result in break-outs, so back-up is essential! Origins’ Spot Removal stops blemishes in their tracks, without drying out your skin.
Save on carrying both a face and body moisturiser by snapping up the multi-tasking Steam Cream. You can use it anywhere and the lovely light texture ensures it won’t feel too heavy on even the most sensitive complexions. Plus, the handy tin makes it really easy to transport.
Hairspray is an absolute must for fixing any cool festival ‘dos, and this one from Living Proof will hold up just about any style.
