Festival Season Beauty Essentials

Festival-Season-Beauty-Essentials_Cat

 

The season of music festivals is upon us! If you’ve managed to snag tickets and are now in the process of planning your outfits, hair and makeup, our Beauty Advisors have some tips for what to bring – aside from floral crowns, combat boots and crochet crop tops.

 

conair brush

 

The Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush

Access to electricity may not be widely available during the festival, so having wireless hair tools is key. The wireless battery-operated Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush tames static and frizzy hair using ion technology, so you can keep fly-aways at bay.

 

 

fekkai

 

The Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo

Let’s be honest, access to showers at festivals is a luxury. Use Fekkai’s Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo to skip a wash and give your hair an instant refresh. The dry shampoo will absorb dirt and oil so your hair will look and smell freshly done!

 

 

 

marcelle mascara

 

The Marcelle Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat

With back-to-back concerts and parties, your makeup will be put to the test. To avoid the dreaded melting mascara, swipe Marcelle’s Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat over your favourite regular mascara once dry.

The La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur – SPF 24

A lightweight coverage BB cream is the best way to give your face natural looking coverage that won’t get cakey and melt in the sun. La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar BB Blur not only gives light coverage, but it also minimizes excess shine and offers SPF 24 to protect your face from the sun throughout the day.

 

 

 

vichy

 

The Vichy Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream – SPF 60

Spending all day under the hot sun with little to no shade means you’ll need to re-apply sunscreen every couple hours to stay protected. Vichy’s Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream has a fast-drying non-sticky texture that can be applied on face and body, offering both UVA and UVB protection.

 

 

e.l.f.

 

The e.l.f. Studio Lip Balm SPF 15

Don’t forget to protect your lips with SPF too.  A tinted lip balm with SPF, like e.l.f.’s Studio Lip Balm will give your lips a flush of natural-looking colour, while also soothing and protecting them from harmful sun rays.

The Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer

You’ll look like a bronzed festival goddess all day long with Cargo’s Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer. The longwearing formula withstands perspiration, so you can rock a healthy summer glow without having to fuss with re-application throughout the day.

 

 

YB refresh

 

The Youngblood Minerals in the Mist – Refresh

Long days with little sleep and lots of sun mean your skin will likely be begging for a pick-me-up. Give your face a quick spritz of Youngblood’s Minerals in the Mist Refresh to soothe tired skin and give a refreshing boost of moisture to your face.

These makeup wipes from Bioderma are non-rinse: perfect for quickly wiping off makeup & cleansing skin after a long festival day, especially when you don’t have easy access to running water.

Heat-Proofing Your Summer Make-up

Heat-proof makeup graphic

The summer heat can take a toll, causing your make-up to melt away and your hair to frizz in the humidity. These beauty products, hand-picked by London Drugs Beauty Advisors, will help  keep your summer look fresh, even as the temperature climbs:

 

  1. Evian Brumisateur Facial Spray

This natural mineral water facial spray is the easiest way to moisturize and refresh your skin on-the-go. Throw it in your purse and give your face a quick spritz to keep your skin looking fresh: even in the hottest heat wave. ($14.00 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. NYX Proof It! Waterproof Mascara Top Coat

The heat can melt your mascara, leaving dark shadows underneath your eyes. Instead of  foregoing your favourite regular mascara for a waterproof mascara, apply two swipes of the NYX Waterproof Mascara Top Coat. The top coat will make any  mascara waterproof. ($10.99 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

Once you’re finished applying makeup, use this lightweight setting spray from NYX to make your makeup stay put. While it comes in both dewy finish and matte finish formulations, the matte finish setting spray is your best bet for fighting off shine during a heat wave. ($9.99 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. Conair Infiniti Pro The Ultimate Brush

Heat and humidity can really do a number on your hair in the summertime, causing it to look frizzy. The Conair Ultimate Brush is powered with an anti-frizz ionic generator that releases ions directly into the hair to remove static and smooth the cuticle. The result is frizz free hair that’s beautifully shiny! The brush is wireless, which makes it perfect for tossing in your bag for frizz control on-the-go. ($39.99 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. e.l.f. Studio Eye Primer & Liner Sealer

In the summer heat, eyeshadows crease more easily and eyeliners tend to smudge. Start off with the right eye make-up base by applying e.l.f. Studio Eye Primer to the eyelids; this will set your eyeshadow so it won’t bleed or crease. You can even turn your favourite eyeshadow into a waterproof, smudge-proof liquid liner with the built-in felt tip precision eyeliner brush! ($3.99 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush

To prevent the cakiness that can occur with powdered make-up, switch out your powder blush for a cream blush during summer. This cream-textured blush from Youngblood combines a shimmering glow with sheer, long-wearing colour that is perfect for outlasting the summer heat. The oil free formula even contains Vitamins C and E, Allantoin and Jojoba Esters that blend together to moisturize and protect the skin. ($32.00 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. L’Oréal Colour Riche Balm with SPF 15

Opt for a lip tint in summer to give your lips a nice flushed colour that is more comfortable than sticky glosses or heavy lipsticks. As an added bonus, the L’Oréal Colour Rich Balm also has SPF 15 to help protect your lips while you’re out in the sun. ($9.99 at LondonDrugs.com)

 

  1. La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Cream

When temperatures rise, it’s time to put aside the heavy foundations and try a lightweight BB cream instead. You’ll find it far more comfortable throughout the day, and this La Roche-Posay BB Cream will also help moisturize, soothe and protect your skin. Your complexion will look unified, even and fresh! ($29.00 at LondonDrugs.com)

Frizz and Static-Free Waves with the Conair Ultimate Brush

Blogger Kassandra of Kassinka shows us how to get beautiful soft, beachy waves that are frizz and static-free, using her new Conair Ultimate Brush and a curling wand. Watch the video to see her tips & tricks on mastering the style!

Perfect for taming frizzy or static hair on-the-go, InfitiniPro by Conair’s new Ultimate Brush is game changer! Powered with an anti-frizz ionic generator, the Ultimate Brush releases ions directly into the hair to remove static and smooth the cuticle: the result is frizz free hair that is beautifully shiny.

There all kinds of things that can cause hair to look frizzy. Air conditioning, contact with man-made fibres, and even air pollution can all cause a build up of static electricity, which then causes the surface of the cuticle to become rough and hair to appear frizzy.

Your best defence against frizz and static is to toss the Conair Ultimate Brush in your bag and have it with you on the go- it’s wireless, after all! Perfect for touch-ups.
