Top tips for packing a festival-ready makeup kit

Sure, it's all well and good pre-planning a totally 'grammable glam, but how on earth do you carry it all to the festival? And should you be packing the same products you usually rely on? Before you pack your makeup kit, check out our top tips.

Go bold or go home

Creating a dramatic look is as easy as carrying with you a pack of stick-on face/body gems and some loose glitter eyeshadow pots. They are easy to travel with and can create totally different looks with some selective placement.

Wear waterproof everything

When the music starts playing, you're likely to dance and jump around (unless you're one of those too-cool listening types). Which means you're also likely to sweat. So avoid panda eyes/smudges by making sure you choose waterproof everything from mascara to eyeliner. As well as working up a SOULA (sweaty upper lip action) - think about the threat of rain!

Invest in multitasking makeup

Two-in-one blush and lip tints will be your best friend. Or how about a concealer stick that doubles up as nude lippie? These savvy products will save you space in your festival bag, so you can pack other important essentials.

Stay safe with SPF

We've said it time and time again, but SPF is essential every day. But, especially so when you're heading to a festival. Whether it's gloriously sunny or not, you're likely to be spending your days outside so always stay protected against harmful rays. Another great space-saving tip is to pack skincare products that already have SPF protection.
