Five Festival Beauty Essentials

Festival season has begun! I put together this small list of 5 things I would definitely be taking to a festival if I was going. 

1. Dry Shampoo
A good refresher for that two day old hair. You still want to look fairly decent on the second and third day of the festival so I'd recommend taking some dry shampoo to add volume and remove some of that grease. Personally I find it really uncomfortable when my hair is greasy and there is obviously not going to be anywhere decent to wash your hair so this is the only solution!

2. Moisturiser
Moisturiser is key as you can't really put makeup on top of super dry skin as it will not do you any favours. Chances are your skin will be extremely dehydrated especially if the weather is hot and you have been drinking a lot (which I am presuming most of you will be). I'd recommend taking a cream that doubles up as a body and face cream to save you space in your tent - my favourite at the moment is the Simple: Kind to Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser


3. Nude Kohl Liner
With all the late nights and lack of sleep due to loud people your eyes will probably take most of the hit and will make you look just as tired as you feel. To brighten your eyes up and distract from the redness and dark circles wear a nude eyeliner on your waterline. Not only will it distract from the redness but it will also brighten and open up your eyes making you look more awake. A popular one in the beauty blogger world is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Liner in Nude (super cheap!). 

4. Bright Eyeshadow 
I always feel like you have to go super bright and whacky with eye makeup at festivals, probably because of all the new releases that come out around festival time. Wearing bright eyeshadow is perhaps something that isn't commonly done on an everyday basis so why not take advantage of the opportunity to go crazy?! A perfect palette would be the Sleek i-divine Palette in Acid.

5. Crazy Hair Colour
Not everyone wants to bleach their hair and permanently damage it just for the case of a festival, so I found these - the Label.M Coloured Powder Spray. The little gift set pictured below comes with a red, purple, pink and blue coloured spray, so you can mix things up a bit. It works in a similar way to hair chalk, and washes out within the first wash, but gives amazing colour. Of course it wont work on people with dark brown or black hair, but for anyone with lighter hair this is a great alternative to dying your hair.

I hope that this post has given you some tips on what to pack for your festival trip! Don't forget the other essentials that I haven't mentioned like tissues (which will definitely come in handy!). Which festival are you attending this year?!
