Festival Beauty Tips

When it comes to festival beauty, you want to keep it simple. Rocking out to your favourite band with a panda face is so not attractive. Here I will give you a few tips and tricks on how to keep your makeup and hair looking fresh all day long.

When it comes to a makeup base, choose one that’s going to give you a glow. My current favourite is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, it covers any blemishes yet doesn’t give that ‘I have makeup on’ look. If you need extra coverage, maybe under the eyes or around any red areas then go for this NYX Concealer Wand and Jar Duo. It’s HD formula will not only make you look flawless, it also means you’ll look great in pictures too! We all know you’ll be instagramming, tweeting and facebooking! Next, you will HAVE TO use a blotting powder to keep any excess shine at bay, being under the sunlight all day long can also melt your makeup, the blot powder will ensure everything is locked into place. Try this Daniel Sandler Invisible Blotting Powder.

I would avoid eyeliner as the hot weather can smudge it but if you really insist, then go for this Rimmel Gel Eyeliner. It dries quick, stays put and is more long lasting than it’s sisters pencil and liquid. Set it with a black eyeshadow to make sure it really stays put, just like the way you would set your liquid foundation. Mascara wise, waterproof all the way. Helloooo?! No panda eyes please. This Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Mascara is fab, I used this on holiday! Finally use a lip colour you don’t need a mirror to apply, this means you can re-apply whenever wherever. Choose a bright colour like this Bourjois Colour Boost Lipstick in Fuchsia Libre to really rock out.



I can’t stress enough how important SPF is! One of the main reasons we age and become wrinkly so fast is because of the sun damage. Don’t forget to protect yourself! This P20 SPF 30 Spray is great because it’s a spray, quick and easy!

If you’re worried you hair may look a little dirty and unkept, take some TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo with you, this will immediately soak up any oils and give your hair some volume, finish with this TIGI Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray (my current favourite!) on the ends of your hair for that sexy un-done just got out of bed kinda look.

Dont forget to take some sort of fragrance to keep you smelling nice, my current pick is this Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb 100ml EDT and finally, you’re going to need something to put this all in! Check out this Ted Baker Patent Small Bow Wash Bag, how cute is it?!

Have fun, stay safe and don’t forget your SPF!!! Suzi xx
