OK, so there’s no hairdryer or full-length mirror, but you’re determined to rock killer festival looks day-after-day from beauty base camp, aka your tent – and we admire your commitment.
Travel-sized products, skin hydrators, glow-givers, bright makeup and hair revivers can take your look to the next-level – even when you’re beautifying in a confined space. Here’s our pick of what to stash alongside your kimono, boots, bumbag, vodka and glitter this festival season…
Wipes are a festival essential, but they’re not great for skin. We’re giving thanks, then, for these serum-soaked skin pads, 7-in1 Miracle Skin Mask Pads, £27, StarSkin. With exfoliating beads on one side, they act as a massage, exfoliator, toner, moisturiser, serum, mask and makeup primer in one. Count them as an in-tent mini facial.
“Create a fresh base to showcase a decorated look”, recommends makeup pro and Max Factor ambassador, Caroline Barnes. “Use a base with high SPF and a moisturising finish to keep skin fresh and hydrated with minimal effort.” Caroline loves Waso Colour Smart Day Moisturiser, £34, Shiseido. With carotene extracts, it plumps and moisturises, protects with an SPF 30, and the colour adapts to your skintone on application to give a healthy glow.
