Going to a festival is a rite of passage and you have to experience the sheer insanity of camping at a festival at least once, but what do you do when you have to survive with the bare minimum of beauty products? You take your festival essentials of course!

There is nothing better than a pop of colour at a festival and the best way to do this is a bright lip! Whilst the matte lipsticks do give better coverage they also dry your lips out and are incredibly hard to get off. So opt for a moisturising high pigment lipstick like the ones from Sara Hill, these have shea butter & jojoba in them so will nourish your lips as well as giving amazing colour.

Everyone wants to appear fresh faced but after days of drinking & being in the elements this isn’t alway easy to achieve! I love the Kiko cream compact, you can use it as a concealer or an all over foundation and it won’t dry your skin out or become cakey.

Another all round gem of a product, and one I couldn’t live without, is the Kiko highlight stick, it will instantly brighten and because it’s a cream it will instantly blend into the kiko foundation. Grab the champagne colour and shine baby shine!

Now I don’t know about you but baby wipes at a festival just don’t cut it, somehow they just make you feel dirtier? So if there is an option of a working shower TAKE IT! These Original Source shower gels pack a punch and I promise they will help banish any hangover! The lemon will leave you feeling squeaky clean and the mint, well lets just say you won’t be sleepy after using it!

Everyone loves glitter right? So take your festival look to the next level with these glitter pots from Sara Hill. Use to create glitter roots, mix with eye primer to create amazing make up that stays put or sprinkle on top of your highlighter for a killer shine.

Even if you are planning on going sans make up at your next festival I couldn’t recommend this more. The sport mascara from Eyeko takes waterproof mascara to the next level. It wont smudge or flake, hell it won’t even come off in the shower unless you use make up remover! Perfect for festivals or holidays when you need a little more from your make up.

5 Quickfire tips;

  1. Get a festival ready hairstyle, braids are always a winner!
  2. Wear wellies. Trust me.
  3. Drink water, festival toilets may suck but so does dehydration.
  4. Pick your favourite bands and actually go and see them!
  5. Have a plan; if you get separated from your friends have a meet up point.

Have fun! Don’t forget if you are at T in the Park or Board Masters you can swing past the refresh area & hit up the Original Source tingle truck for some festival freshness.
