Festival Beauty: Your Packing Essentials

Music Festival

Festival season is officially here and we thought it would be the perfect time to put a list together showing you the beauty must-have’s that we could not go to a festival without.

We won’t bore you with hand sanitiser or dry shampoo (even though you will be needing these), we’re cutting to the chase with beauty essentials that will make your time living in a field that little bit nicer.

Be the campsite beauty Queen with this kit list:

Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Wipes£1.49.

Fresh running water is simply not going to be possible stuck in a field of tents so your most simple and easiest option is facial cleansing wipes. These will remove any make-up and freshen up the skin.


When it comes to looking after your skin at a festival you want to keep things as simple as possible.

 Garnier Moisture Match Revitalising Hydrating Gel, £5.99 

All that partying can take its toll on your skin. Garnier’s Moisture Match moisturiser will revitalise and wake your skin up again giving an immediate sense of freshness and long-lasting hydration.

At festivals, keeping the beauty routine as simple as possible is key. So, we give you special permission to forget the toners and serums (JUST THIS ONCE) and move straight on to moisturiser.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer£4.19.

You’re going to have no time for make-up so it’s time to skip out many, many steps because quite frankly you do not need it. Your make-up will most likely fall off your face when you get caught in a water-fight anyways.

It’s time to banish the foundation because you simply do not need it! Save time and just apply concealer to area’s which need some attention.  It’s perfect for covering up under eye darkness and any unwanted blemishes. Simply apply using the dome foot applicator and blend in with your finger.

Urban Decay Electric Palette, £38.00

Now for the fun part, inject colour! Festival’s are all about colour and the more the better.

Urban Decay Electric Palette

This is the luxury only product that we think should be brought to a festival simply because the colour payoff is AMAZING and they can be used wet or dry.

You can create some really vibrant festival looks super quick with this high pigmented palette. It comes with a double ended brush so application is easy and the mirror is a brilliant size for applying your make-up in.

 L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara in Pop Turquoise, £8.99

Colourful make-up must be paired with colourful lashes.


This is amazing for creating full lashes with a bright turquoise colour.

Vaseline’s Rosy Lips, £1.99

Add a touch of pink to your lips while keeping them protected with Vaseline’s Rosy Lips.

Vaseline Rosy Lips

This will keep your lips moisturised and protected from the sun while adding a hint of colour.

Yellow Make-up Bag ASOS, £10

Last but not least you need a super funky Make-up bag to hold all your beauty essentials. We love this clear neon yellow make-up bag from ASOS.
