Whether you’re jetting off to a festival abroad or packing your weekend bag for Glastonbury’s five-day extravaganza, choosing your beauty aesthetic is all part of the fun.
From boho beauties to outright ravers, we’ve rounded up four of our favourite looks and the products we’ll be using to achieve them. Which will you be channeling?
The boho and go
It’s all about beautiful waves adorned in garlands of flowers, a dash of chalked pastel across the eyelids and wrapping a flash tattoo (or three) around your wrists.
We love: John Frieda Sea Waves, £6.99 at Boots; L’Oreal Color Riche Nails in Boho Look, £4.99 at Boots; Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight, £19 at Clinique; Maxfactor Wild Shadow in Purple, £4.99 at Boots
The creature of comfort
We’re taking inspiration from summer’s Preen girl, who was covered in a smattering of faux freckles – parred against beautiful skin. For this, a kit of skin-saving essentials is required to prep, prime and perfect your complexion all festival long.
We love: Halo Facial Wipes, £1.20 at Superdrug; The Library of Fragrance in Pure Soap, £15 at Boots, Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial, £35 at House of Fraser; MAC liner in mahogany, £12.50 at MAC Costmetics
The dash and diva
A little bit of sparkle is the ultimate way to instantly dress up your look if you’re festival-bound – either spotlight the outer corners of your eyes with a dab of gold glitter or simply add a coat of silver just above your liner. What’s more, a bottle of bounce & volume spray will have your hair looking it’s fullest, thickest and very best.
We love: Charles Worthington Salon at Home Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray, £6.99 at Boots; Essense Lipgloss in Pretty in Hibiscus, £1.80 at Wilkinsons, Eylure Brow Crayon, £6.45 at Eylure, Babyliss Pro Nano 200 Mini Hair Straighteners, £9.99 at Boots, Topshop Glitter Pots, £5 each at Topshop
The ready made raver
If there’s a time to push the boundaries of beauty, festival season is it. It’s all about experimentation – particularly when it comes to colour. A bolt of blue eyeliner against max lashes and a slick of bright polish across your nails is all you need.
We love: MAC Dimension Lash Mascara, £19 at MAC Cosmetics, Eylure Definition False Lashes in 123, £5.25 at Eylure; Illamasqua Eye Crayon in Debonair, £16 at Illamasqua, KMS Hair Stay Anti-Humidity Seal, £16.15 at Feel Unique, Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 31, £1.60 at Wilkinsons
