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 makeup, 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 makeup items that give you the perfect festival beauty routine.

The best star to your day is a soft base to put your makeup on to. Origins original skin matte moisturiser 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 makeups 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 sun’s 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. Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Elvis Duran 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 is a staple of the catwalk and perfect for your festival makeup 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 eyelids will smudge the look. Add long lasting definition to your eyes using a long wearing eyeliner 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. Maybelline Smokey eyes gift set has everything you need for a sultry look whilst you dance the night away.

However you choose to wear your makeup 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.
