Being at a festival can often mean too many late nights, endless partying and our beauty regimes going out of the window, all of which can leave our skin looking a bit disheveled. Here are a few things that I thought might be useful when thinking about what to take with you to a festival. Helping you to retain your festival beauty, without having to lug around a ton of products.

Its key to prepare before you go …
  • For hair taming tricks use John Frieda 3 Day Straight; a semi permanent styling spray that will stop your hair from turning into a fizzy mess.
  • Paint your nails, not only will you look FAB but it will also help to hide any hidden dirt. Grab Revlon’s scented nail enamel in bubble gum pink, a perfect choice for this seasons summer brights! 
  • Fake a tan using St Moritz self tanning mousse or if you want a more natural glow, try Garnier’s Summer body gradual tanner.

Once your there ….

  • Sun cream is a MUST have, nobody looks good with sun burn! Simple’s sun sensitive protective facial lotion in SPF 30 or 50 is gentle for your skin and its perfect for applying under your makeup without looking shiny.
  • To stay smelling as fresh as a daisy use Garnier Deodorant Mineral 48hr Non-Stop Silky Smooth Underarms which is specially designed for 48hr protection even under extreme conditions.
  • To prevent pander eyes and for long lasting eye shadow, use waterproof makeup. Using Rimmel’s Falsies Mascara in waterproof will help to keep your lashes looking luscious ( :) that's a bit of a mouthful!)
  • Multi purpose makeup is ideal when trying to pack light; ‘The Multiple’ sticks from Nars can be used on your eyes, cheeks and body.
  • My festival favourite has to be glitter! Collection 2000 and MUA have a great range of glitter eyeliners and Barry M’s Dazzles dusts can add that touch of sparkle.
  • With less that inadequate showering facilities dry shampoo is the Holy Grail product for surviving a festival, Tresemme’s Refreshing Dry Shampoo is great for keeping your hair looking clean without leaving your hair looking dull and white. There are also simple things like plaiting your hair or wearing a stylish hat that can do the trick too.
  • To prevent you getting ill and missing out on all the fun wet wipes and hand sanitizer are great ways to keep your hands hygienic.
  • Don't for get to use makeup removing wipes especially on those late nights when you really cant be bothered to remove your makeup (you’ll regret it in the morning)

I hope that these few tips might be of some help if you’re planning on going to a festival this summer. I love to hear if you’re going to any :)
