Whether you’re opting for a glamourous or a boho festival look we have the products you won’ want to leave home without.
Packing the right essentials to ensure you’re sorted whatever the weather.
Kelly Lloyd-Sanderson of beauty, health and wellness company Arbonne shares her top tips on how to flaunt a fierce festival look, including fresh faced makeup, bedhead beauty and skincare saviours.
To party from dusk ‘til dawn with a makeup mix that will give you maximum coverage and remain looking fresh, using a primer is a must! Not only will a primer create a flawless base for the application of the rest of your makeup, it will also ensure your look lasts all day, meaning only minor touch ups are required.
Stand out from the crowd while dancing to your favourite act by experimenting with colour. Switch your usual black or brown kohl pencil for coloured eyeliner or swap clear gloss for a sweet, summer shade.
Think about the morning after. In the absence of your full length mirror and trusty straighteners, you may want to style out your bedhead locks with hair care products that will add volume and gloss. Try products such as Arbonne’s Pure Vibrance™ ColorLast Hair Spray (£22), which provide a sexy, tousled look whilst also taming any frizz caused by humidity and preventing sun damage.
Get ready for the selfies. Festivals are the perfect place to get 100s of snaps with the girls, so you’ll need to be ready for your close up. Using a Complexion Control Cream combines the best of skincare and colour in one time-saving product. We love the Perricone No Foundation Foundation. This unique, multi-purpose formula adds both coverage and moisture all while allowing the natural health of your skin to shine through. Added perk – this wonder product has SPF 30 for much needed sun protection. RRP £48.00 www.perriconemd.co.uk
Come rain or shine, it’s always better to be prepared for the unpredictable UK weather. If space in your bag is tight, take a sun cream that has a hydrating formula (as well as a high SPF rating) so you can protect and stay moisturised, leaving skin silky smooth.
The Eucerin Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Micellar Cleansing Fluid is the ideal, effective yet gentle 3 in 1 cleanser, toner and eye make-up remover. Ideal at festivals because we all know our usual skincare routine will be out of the window. PH balanced for all skin types, including sensitive skin, it actively helps maintain skin’s moisture levels whilst sweeping away any oil, debris or make-up leaving skin purely cleansed and hydrated, allowing skin to breathe.

To add a fun twist to your beauty routine at the festivals this summer, we’re love the Mr. Kate BeautyMarks – a collection of gold foil designs to adorn your face and body. The hand-drawn designs are applied like faux tattoos and can be cut up and worn in any way to accent your style. BeautyMarks can be purchased for £12 from www.redrubyrouge.com.
And finally, it’s the products to help keep your body and hair fresh; the So…? Fresh-tival Gift Set is the ultimate festival survival kit. Filled with two pocket-sized dry shampoos and two mini body sprays of the So…? Fragrances you can keep fresh without lots of weight and room being taken up. £4.99 available from Argos stores nationwide.
