Here is a list of my top makeup & skincare survival favourites from LOOKFANTASTIC for the festival season that you will need to have in your bag!
First off- Cleanser!
Disposable wipes are handy but they are not environmentally friendly, so if washing facilities are not easily available, reusable cleansing wipes are a go-to.
I like the NIP+FAB Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads - 60 Pads. Because they are pads there won't be any leakage in your bag!
Next up is Moisturiser
You will need a good hydrating moisturiser like the The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors + HA 30ml to help protect the skin barrier from all exposure to the elements that goes with festival fun. This moisturiser is non greasy and has hyaluronic acid to plump the skin and hydrate it.
The all important SPF
My go to is this summer is The Kate Somerville UncompliKated SPF50 Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray.
It comes in an easy to use spray bottle and has a SPF of 50. It gives a matt effect on the skin so takes away any shine you may have and gives a smooth and healthy appearance.
Mini hairbrush for your handbag
The most popular hairstyle for festivals are usually space buns! They have been around for quite a few seasons but are still a firm fav. It’s a great way to get your hair out of the way and keeping it looking neat. Carry a small brush like the Tangle Teaser mini hair brush in your bag in case you need to touch your hair up during the day.
One of the Most important festival products needed is Dry Hair Shampoo!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo 92ml instantly freshens up the feel and appearance of your hair between washes. It has a silicone-free cleanser spray on easily and a Triple-Action Cleaning Technology to absorb oil, sweat and odour without leaving behind a powdery residue. This one is suitable for all hair colours and types and is infused with a time-released fragrance to keep your hair smelling nice and fresh all day long.
This years makeup trend is fresh and dewy skin with golden shimmery highlights to add a glowy dimension to the face. My favourite summer foundation is the NEW Nars Light Reflecting Foundation which has a medium coverage with a natural, skin-like finish and is also buildable and breathable for all day wear. It blurs imperfections and is infused with skincare ingredients.
Glitter! Glitter! Glitter!
MAC Galactic Glitter has many various shades to choose from!
To apply on the eyes use Duo Glue and for the lips lipgloss/ lip balm.
