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.

Lise Watier’s Spring 2017 Collection is Blossoming with Colourful New Beauty Favourites

Lise Watier has launched their spring 2017 collection, Blossom Beauty, and our Beauty Advisors are head over heels! The floral ambiance of cherry blossoms, mimosas, anemones, and peonies inspired this beautiful makeup collection, which includes eyeshadows, blush, and even an all-new bicolor lipstick. See each of the new spring launches below, and be sure follow the pro application tips from Lise Watier’s International Makeup Artist David Vincent to achieve your flawless spring look!

 

Lise Watier Rose Nudes 12-Colour Eyeshadow Palette

This palette contains 12 new neutral shades in different finishes going from luminous matte to satin. A double-ended brush that is perfectly designed for eye makeup is also included in the mirrored case.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Matte shades can be applied all over the mobile eyelid, while more iridescent shades are perfect to illuminate certain parts of the eye (under the eyebrows, the centre of the eyelid, and the interior corner of the eye).

 

Lise Watier Bicolor Lipstick (Limited Edition)

Follow the hottest Korean beauty trend! This lipstick creates an ombré effect thanks to two complementary colours selected to be used together. It is also possible to create your very own personalized colour by combining both shades together. Try shades Naked Glow or Blushing Glow.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply the lighter shade near the outside of the lips, and the darker shade towards the centre. Blend the line where they meet using a lip brush or using the tip of your fingers.

 

Lise Watier Blossom Blush (Limited Edition)

This is an ultra-rich powder blush with a silky texture to illuminate, uplift and sculpt the cheeks. The universal shade is suitable for all complexions providing a natural finish and a healthy glow.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply lipstick before blush to avoid using too much and to naturally enhance your look.

 

Lise Watier Portfolio Professional Colour Correcting Stick

Portfolio correctors perfectly target and instantly correct a variety of skin imperfections all in the convenience and precision of a retractable stick. Available in 4 colour correcting shades: Jaune conceals blue veins and under eye circles, Lavande neutralizes and brightens skin tone, Pêche neutralizes dark spots and illuminates, and Vert neutralizes redness and imperfections.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply directly to imperfections and blend with a touch of foundation.

 

Lise Watier 24 Hrs Glam Eyeshadow

This waterproof eyeshadow glides on smoothly for a crease-proof and smudge resistant result. Easy to apply, it blends easily, dried quickly, and stays in place until it’s removed. An integrated sharpener under the bottom cap sharpens automatically for a precise application every time. This multifunctional crayon can be used as an eyeshadow, an eyeliner or even as a base for your eye makeup. Try the new shades Ivory and Urban.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply the eyeshadow directly to the eyelid and blend with your fingertips. To make sure that the result is even, blend the product immediately after its application. Wait 5 seconds for the product to dry before applying other eye makeup to ensure a long-lasting result.

 

Lise Watier Féline Eyeliner HD

This eyeliner provides definition and intensity in a single stroke thanks to its ultra-pigmented, quick-drying formula. Its fine and supple felt-tip applicator allows for an easy and precise application. Try in the new shade Carbon.

Pro Tip from David Vincent:

Apply starting from the outside corner of the eye moving towards the centre, then draw another line beginning at the inside corner of the eye and connect the two lines at the centre.
