If you follow me on Twitter you’ll have probably noticed how I went to Werchter festival last week. I’m very blessed to be able to do several festivals each year with my best friends & I always have such fun! However, as festivals are very dirty & sweaty you’ve got to be quite prepared when heading out there. Of couse you don’t want to carry a huge duffle bag with you on the festival terrain, so I advise you to pick your favorite small shoulder bag & select some useful beauty products that can make a true difference. I’m using my Kipling x Stylescrapbook camera bag this year as this baby deserves some more play time. It has very limited storage space, so check out which limited stash I choose to carry along with me. I haven’t included my wallet, keys & cell phone in the picture, but it gives you an idea.
A disinfectant gel is so useful during festivals! In my experience, good hygiene isn’t often to be found at festivals so you need to take good care of yourself. Don’t touch any food, touch up your make up or rub your eyes without first disinfecting your hands. As a first festival look aid, a good quality shine lipstick goes a long way when it comes to plumping your lips. This year Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine is my best lip bud. Then, I find that the first thing about my make up to start smudging in hot weather is my blush/bronzer. I’m carrying my Topshop Cheek Duo with me, which is a pink blusher&light bronzer two-in-one. Use a stippling brush to touch up your cheekbones without adding too much product. And of course one does not sleep too much when going to festivals, so you will need some industrial strength concealer. I strongly advise MAC Cosmetics’ Studio Fix Concealer, which works miracles on my dark circles.
There are still loads more festivals coming up this summer, so I hope you’ve all got some lined up. Enjoy!
