Your ultimate festival beauty survival Guide

 How to look good even during festival season

Festival season is fast approaching now that the weather is finally warming up. Whether it’s Wireless, Glasto or The Isle Of Wight, culturally festival get up is very lively, bright colours, beachy tousled hair and bold lips.

Lots of glitters around the face, youthful full eyebrows, rhinestones, temporary flash tattoos are a great way to vibe up your look without the commitment.

So keep it simple with the hair. Loose waves or curls or a short tapered cut is great for festivals and hotter seasons.

Hair

You’ll hardly have time to get your hair properly sorted while you’re out in the middle of nowhere, so you’ll need a quick fix that is not only easy to carry around, but also does a satisfactory job of keeping your hair presentable. If you’ve got natural hair, I recommend the Mahogany Naturals daily moisturising leave in treatment £20 to keep hair moisturised and protect hair from the sun.

Don’t be afraid to go bold. This is the best time to experiment with texture and colours. For cheaper drug store eyeshadow alternatives, try MUA or Revolution eyeshadow palletes £4. They are highly pigmented, work almost as good as the more expensive ones and won’t break the bank.
