Give in to Wipes
Seriously. How often is it drilled into us that “wipes are no good” for our skin. I think bloggers are partly responsible for this - because all my IRL friends use them without a care in the world. None the less when it comes to festival beauty there is nothing like ‘em. From waking up in a pool of sweat to stumling in bleary eyed. Wipes are multi purpose and a must for a festival beauty bag. I bought ones for my face as well as ones for my body and everything else. I really like the Yes to Carrots wipes - they do a good job at cleansing the skin and removing makeup
Don’t bring your best makeup
My favourite Illamasqua Lip pigment only went and melted in the sun didn’t it. I was gutted. It’s my favourite product of all time and it was just a sloppy goopy mess after a hour in my backpack. When you go to a festival don’t pack all your expensive favourite makeup items. Go for your more budget friendly options within your beauty collection. Pick items that are replaceable or not your favourite but still do the job. You don’t want to go losing your favourite Tom Ford shadow or that beautiful Charlotte Tilbury lippie do you!
I think it’s always fun to bring glitter to a festival. You’ll be surprised how many people will see you with it on and ask you to try some for themselves. I took a pot of the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter and the Urban Decay Bondage and had a line of boys all wanting a coating of the shimmery stuff at our tent door. Apply it to the tops of your cheek bones for an 80’s glam rock throwback or on the lids for a new rave sparkle Don’t forget neon paints too, they are always a crowd pleaser!
ALWAYS BRING SPF. SERIOUSLY.
Body, Lip and Face. Me and Dal made the mistake of only bringing body SPF on our recent festival jaunt to Germany and we were left with chapped lips and burnt noses. I’ve been raving about the Benefit Dream Screen for ages but it’s one of the best facial SPF’s I’ve ever tried. It keeps oiliness at bay without skimping on protection. Bring a stick o’ lipbalm to keep your lips protected too!
Wear makeup if you want to
If you want to wear makeup at a festival then do it. Don’t feel peer pressed into bare facing it if you don’t want to. Some people just feel comfortable without some sort of makeup on! Just because wearing makeup at festivals is “frowned” on my the more “hardcore” festivaller might look down on you for making an effort if it makes YOU happy then do it. Refer back to my earlier point about not bringing your best stuff, but strip down to the essentials and what you really need. Good base, mascara, brows and a bronzer are my personal must haves!
