So I made it back in one piece from Glastonbury,a little grubby, very tired but what an amazing experience!
I’m not exactly a ‘girly’ girl - mud doesn't scare me (bring it on!) the fact I couldn't wash my hair didn't faze me, sleepless nights? who sleeps at a festival anyway!?
But the one thing I could not live without was my beauty essentials.
I’m going to tell you all about my absolute must haves for any festivals you’re planning on going to this year.
1. Hair Saviours
I bought these little gems for £8 for the set it came with the all important dry shampoo (best invention of the 21st century? possibly!) this dry shampoo smelled fab and not a greasy root in sight. The weather resistant hair spray came in very handy for a rainy Thursday afternoon, luckily the sun shone for the rest of the weekend and this hair spray was used alot! The oomph powder made our hair very ‘shabby chic’ festival ready - one word of warning, your hair will not budge after using this, so use it sparingly.
2. Lip care
One of the hottest days of the year happened at Glastonbury, everywhere I turned people had peeling noses and bright red shoulders! Festivals are very unpredictable weather wise - especially in this country, so pack for anything that may happen. Take wellies AND sun cream because you may need both. One area people often forget to protect are their lips, I took my trusty Hawaiian Tropic SPF 25 lip gloss - however I am sat here writing this with a sun burnt lip! I didn't apply this enough, so learn from my mistake and top up your lip-care every hour or so.
3. Glitter & sparkle
Festival essential! Everywhere you look people have face art, neon paint and glitter all over their faces. Take your own and get creative, it’s makes for a fun half hour in the tent with your friends! I got a small 4 section nail art stack pot for around £2 which I used on my face, I already had the Collection glitter eyeliners which are only a couple of pound too from Superdrug.
4. Cheats Festival Art
These amazing creations will see you right through your festival! The amazing Face Lace festival collection designs will save you time, hassle and have your looking festival ready in a few seconds! Just peel off, stick down and you’re done! They are priced at £9.95 and are re-usable! Get yours at www.face-lace.com
5. Luscious face wipes
I swear by Johnsons nourishing face wipes, they are so moisturising, last for ages and 1 wipe will take all your makeup off including waterproof mascara!
6. Super soft, hydrated skin
I always take a very rich creamy moisturiser with me to keep my skin from drying out, I love Embryolisse Lait-creme concentrate, known in the industry as ‘Miracle cream’ for its amazing ability to restore even the scaliest of skin back to full health! Order yours online from £10 for a 30ml tube.
So these are my main festival essentials, remember don’t worry too much about what you look like. Just get into the festival spirit and enjoy why you’re there - for the music and partying! Happy camping.
