Essentials Every Beauty Lover Needs for Festival Season

Festival season is officially in full swing! If you’re a beauty lover planning a getaway to your favourite music retreat, there are a few essentials you’ll want to pack in your bag. Our Beauty Advisors have hand-picked the best products to help you feel fresh and fabulous, even while you’re ‘roughing it’ to see your favourite bands.

 

John Frieda Luxurious Volume – Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo

Luxuriously long showers won’t necessarily be an option, but you can still keep your hair looking fresh in between washes. This dry shampoo from John Frieda will help to absorb oil and turn lackluster locks into salon-caliber, natural looking volume! Our Beauty Advisors recommend lifting hair in sections, then spraying at the roots in short, quick bursts. Use fingers to blend the fine powder into the hair.

 

 

Klorane Biodegradable Make-up Remover Wipes

Swap out your cotton pads and liquid makeup remover for something easier: make-up remover wipes. These wipes from Klorane require no rinsing, making them the ideal choice for festivals where running water isn’t close by. Plus, they’re biodegradable: perfect for your outdoor adventures!

 

Marcelle City Tinted Cream SPF 25

It’s best to avoid thick, cakey foundations on festival trips. Instead, opt for something with natural-looking coverage that will feel more comfortable on skin throughout the day. Marcelle’s new City Tinted Cream is lightweight with just a hint of correcting colour. Plus, it has the benefit of SPF to protect skin against UVB rays throughout the day.

 

 

Biotherm Deo Pure Invisible 48 Hour Antiperspirant Spray

Feeling fresh and clean isn’t something usually associated with festival season, thanks to dusty grounds and infrequent showers. Keep a bottle of this antiperspirant spray on hand for a quick burst of floral freshness that lasts 48 hours! Don’t worry about white marks or yellow stains, the formula is invisible.

 

 

Colorista Semi-Permanent Colour

Before you take off on your festival trip, why not up your hair game? Colorista’s new Semi-Permanent Colour washes out in 4-10 shampoos, making it a fun, temporary choice for your getaway. There are 7 shades for bleached or light blonde hair, and 4 shades for brunettes who don’t want to bleach. Go all out or flirt with colour by customizing your look!

 

MaskerAide All Eyes on Me Hydrating Eye Gels

Long nights at concerts mean mornings will be a bit tough. Take just a few minutes to give your tired eyes some TLC by applying MaskerAide’s Eye Gels under your eyes. The gels are packed with super hydrating, brightening and firming ingredients to help soothe, de-puff and diminish the look of dark circles.

 

Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Colour Stick

Keep your makeup stash to a minimum by choosing products that do double (or in this case, triple) duty! Our Beauty Advisors recommend taking along Mineral Fusion’s 3-in-1 Colour Stick, to add some colour to cheeks, eyes and lips. The lightweight formula will add a subtle shimmer and pretty glow to any complexion, no brush necessary.

 

 

L’Oreal Infallible Paints Eyeshadow

For a fun splash of colour that will last all day, make sure L’Oreal’s brand new Infallible Paints Eyeshadow is in your bag. No makeup brushes are needed for application: our Beauty Advisors suggest using the included applicator or your fingers to apply the cream shadow. Feeling adventurous? Get creative and combine multiple colours, or keep it simple with just a swipe of colour. Once it’s dry, the shadow won’t smudge all day.

 

 

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara is a must. Whether sun or rain is in the forecast, it’s best to have a mascara you can trust won’t melt or run. This new fully loaded volume mascara from Maybelline comes in a waterproof formula that will boost your lashes, while defying the elements.

 

 

Mineral Fusion Hydration Mist

Long days outside in the sun may leave your skin feeling dry and dehydrated. Keep a bottle of this hydration mist close by for a quick spritz throughout the day to refresh the skin. Chamomile, white tea, burdock root and sea kelp will soothe and nourish while defending the skin against free radical damage.
