Going to a Festival this Summer..? 

Summer, summer, summer time....  summer time!

If you are going to a festival this summer here a few ideas and tips that will help you stay looking amazing whilst you're having an amazing time!

You will definitely be on the go, so you will want Makeup that is easy to travel with. Products that are fairly small, inexpensive (as thing have a habit of going missing) and not fragile, will come in handy. 

Hopefully it will be nice weather, so you'll be spending the whole day in the heat, dancing away, crowd surfing and everything else you're going to get up to and you'll want your skin to radiate with a summer glow, not with sweat and oil. Nice! 

  •  Face: Rather than wearing heavy foundation try a tinted moisturiser. We wanna see your freckles too... Make sure you use one with a high SPF, better still use an oil free sun screen before applying the tinted moisturiser.  Waking up in a stuffy tent with sun burn...  makes me feel ill just thinking abut it. First of all it hurts,  it also ages your skin and not to mention the risk of skin cancer.. 
  • Eyes: Try wearing a waterproof mascara, if your anything like me the sun can make your eyes water a little.... it also helps stop panda eyes and it stays on.
  • Lips: If you like to wear lip colour, try a lip stain stay wear.... its long lasting. Try using a lip balm over the top to keep you lips hydrated and kissably soft. Some brands come with a lip balm on the opposite end to the stain.. pretty handy if you want to carry both around.

Resources will be limited so remember to take a small mirror with you and make up remover that is easy to use. Dare I say face wipes.... as they can dry your skin out, but its better to remove your make up than sleep, plus they are quick and easy to use.

Finally .. Make it FUN. That’s what Music, Festivals, and Makeup are all really about. So don’t be afraid to have fun with your makeup! 

 Most of all have a great time and stay safe girls :-)
