the festival beauty hacks you need to know

Free spirited festival-ling: Robyn with her two sisters, Sophie & Portia

Are you ready to dust off the tent, dig out the wellies and get down & dirty in a field full of strangers? Yup, it’s time once again for festival-ling in fields like teenagers. Carefree, extravagant and… well… a bit grubby.

Festival beauty: a conundrum in itself. There’s the actual practicality of keeping clean alongside the desire to try kooky looks, both compounded by the fact everything needs to be rucksack size & user-friendly. Deodorant and wet wipes = basic staples. I’ve picked out the beauty products you really need to see you through a festival weekender…

your 3 step festival beauty hacks

1. keeping clean

NEW Batiste 2in1 Dry Shampoo & Conditioner in Orange & Pomegranate, £4.49 – BUY!

Dry shampoo is a no-brainer, but ah-ha now there’s 2in1! Spray all over from roots to ends, massage in and brush through. Within seconds hair will be refreshed at the roots and conditioned at the tips.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir, £12 for 30ml – BUY!

An excellent base for make-up, smoothing features, tightening pores, and boosting the complexion., it’ll awaken the skin in the morning and liven it up throughout the day.

Zerreau Towel-Off Body Wash Foam, £3.99 – BUY!

(apply exclusive triplemelt code “Triple17” for 15% off until the 30th June 2017)

This really is a festival gem. Opposite to an alcohol-based sanitiser (in fact completely alcohol free) the foaming action mimics the sensation of washing clean. Towel-dried skin is left feeling refreshed, super soft and scented.

2. glam up

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze, £35 – BUY!

There’s nothing better than a healthy glow and there’s nothing simpler than bronzing shimmer. Dust liberally for easy, instant all-over summer skin.

Beauty BLVD Glitter Lips Kit, £12.50 – BUY!

Super simple to achieve but with maximum impact – a slick of glitter and you’ll be rock-chick ready.

iZ Deco It Nail Decals in Starburst, £4 – BUY!

Jazz up bare, painted or gel nails with these super speedy nail decals. Literally peel off, stick on and seal with top coat or clear polish.

3. on-the-go refreshers

Merci Handy Love & Hand Cleansing Gel, £2.90 – BUY!

Forget the nasty port-a-loo dispensers and carry this cute cleansing gel everywhere instead.

4711 Refreshing Tissues, £3 for 10 – BUY!

Ok, totally old school. BUT after a sweaty session watching a band, these will get you smelling great and feel cool on your skin.

Personalised Vaseline Lip Therapy, £2.99 – BUY!

What’s not to love about your own custom Vaseline Lip Therapy? This little classic will keep lips soft, skin soothed – plus you’ll know exactly which tin is yours.
