Be Bold, Be Creative

The benefit about face painting and glitter trends is that there are absolutely no rules. Anything goes, so let your imagination and creativity run wild. Face paints and glitter are fantastic and always a favourite for festivals. Water based festival face paints are recommended (no one wants smears across their face if it happens to rain). These can double up greatly as bright eye shadow too if you’re looking for bright and bold eyes.

Glitter is also fun for festivals so stock up on some glitter pots before you go away. To make your eye makeup really pop, dab a little glitter to the eyelids. An added bonus, to brighten and make your eyes appear bigger, is to apply glitter to the inner corners of your eyes. Apply a little Vaseline to the corners of the eyes beforehand to make the glitter stick and stay in place all day.

Don't Sweat It

Many girls won’t leave the house without a coat of mascara on their lashes. Whatever look you’re going for, whether its natural and fresh or glam rockstar, it’s recommended to use a waterproof mascara for festivals to stay looking fresh and well put together. It’s an important beauty essential, ideal for preventing any smudging if you sweat throughout the day or it happens to rain.


They Say Girls are Always Better at Multi-Tasking....

It’s all about multitasking. Two-in-one blusher and lipstick colour is a great beauty invention, not to mention very handy too when you’re on the go. These products will save space in your festival bag, as well as being buildable and long-lasting. For best results, rub your two-in-one blush lipstick between your fingers to heat it up. Apply to the apples of your cheeks in a dabbing motion. Apply a touch of product over lips too for lightly stained lips. You’ll be grateful for how handy this two-in-one product actually is!


Make Up with SPF

It’s a good idea to keep your foundation simple, especially if you’re going for the fresh and natural look. That’s not to say you should forget about cover up for your face completely. Choose to use tinted moisturisers or BB creams on your face. Most will contain SPF protection which is one of the key festival essentials you should have with you. Opting for these products will also make it a lot easier to remove at the end of a long day of partying. Ensure that your moisturiser contains a SPF factor of 15 or more, even if the weather is cloudy you still need to protect your skin from UV rays. If you still feel you need more of a base to your face and would prefer to wear concealer, buy a waterproof sunblock which is mixed together with a liquid foundation. This will act as sweat proof foundation and will ensure that your pores don’t become clogged.
