When you’re hitting the festivals you
still want to look great – despite rocking out in the heat amongst
crowds of bodies. With a weekend of music at your fingertips the last
thing you’ll want to do is spend all day touching up your make-up,
especially when your closest thing to a bathroom is those rather
grotesque portaloos. Whether you’re heading to Glastonbury or Reading
Festival you can still create a pretty dewy look that will actually
last by using five key make-up items that prep your skin the right
The best star to your day is a soft
base to put your make-up on to. Shiseido Pureness MatifyingMoisturiser is a oil free lightweight
moisturiser that is perfect for letting your skin breathe in the hot
sun. If your skin isn’t too dry conserve the amount you apply and rub
into spots that actually need it.
Sweat is a make-ups arch enemy as it
removes its resistance and staying power. During the summer the need
for a heavy foundation isn’t so necessary as the suns rays help to
brighten your skin tone which will reduce how noticeable any
blemishes are. BB cream mixed with waterproof sun tan lotion makes a
great alternative to foundation and is much lighter on your skin. Try
Decleor Hydra Floral BB cream with 24 hour moisturising effects.
The sun can quite easily melt cream or
liquid formulas so when it comes to making your skin glow try to
stick to a powder bronzer. Instead of applying it to larger areas
like the apples of your cheek or bridge of your nose, use a small
brush to to dab it on to the top of your cheek bones and keep your
stroke around one inch. La Prairie Cellular Treatment Bronzing Powder13.5g is a luxury powder that gives your complexion a golden glow
whilst protecting your skin.
The eyes are the key to your soul and
show just how much you’re enjoying yourself. There’s nothing worse
then jumping around to your favourite band and someone telling you
your mascara is running down your cheeks because you’re sweating so
much. The key to keep your face smudge free is waterproof mascara.
Christian Dior DiorShow Waterproof Mascara Backstage 11.5ml is a
staple of the catwalk and perfect for your festival make-up routine.
Lashes are left thickened and curled with the Aquastop technology
keeping your eyes dry.
Make sure your eye make-up lasts by
applying less mascara on your top lashes and leave your bottom lashes
bare. If your lashes are long there’s no need to curl them as the oil
from your lids will smudge the look. Add long lasting definition to
your eyes using a long wearing eye-liner pencil. Kohl pencils are the
best because they can be easily smudged to give you a smokey eye and
won’t run if any sweat gets around your eyes. ModelCo All About EyesSmokey Eye 3 Piece Set includes a fabulous eye-liner that you can use
to showcase your eyes.
However you choose to wear your make-up
during festival season the key is to simply have fun! Let your hair
down, paint a few flowers on your cheek and put a flower in your hair
and jump up and down to the music because it’s time to enjoy.
