If you’re looking for beauty tips for the festivals then look no further! These 10 simple beauty tips from The Iver Academy Make-Up School founder & award-winning make-up artist Liz Tag Wooster will keep you looking picture perfect all weekend long
Stick to a light & dewy base
Festivals call for a pared back beauty routine. A light, breathable base will be your best friend after only a few hours of sleep and a day of dancing in the sunshine ahead. A creamy formula that stays comfortable and imparts a natural youthful glow is perfect – plus you can put it on with your fingers in the middle of a field and still look fabulous. Find one with added SPF for that all important sun protection.
Add some creamy colour
Staying with the cream theme, a cream blush in a pink or peach shade will instantly perk up your cheeks. Easy to blend over your tinted moisturiser, just dab a little onto your fingers and gently tap into the apples of your cheeks to brighten your complexion in seconds.
Keep lips low-maintenance
Pack a moisturising lip balm with SPF to take care of lips and give them a touch of colour. You don’t need a mirror to apply, so it’s easy to touch-up throughout the day. If you want a deeper colour, try working some of your cream blush into your lips, then popping the balm over the top for added shine.
Festival-proof your lashes
Keep lashes looking perfect from the opening act to the headline set with a silicone based mascara. Regular waterproof formulas can still run, and they’re notoriously difficult to remove when you want them to come off. A silicone based formula will ensure the colour doesn’t smudge or run, and you can easily wipe it away with an oil-based remover at the end of the day.
Create an easy, defined eye
Swap the liquid liner for a soft kohl pencil in black or dark brown to quickly add definition. Work it into the upper and lower lash line and smudge lightly with your finger for a subtle, hazy eye. To intensify your look and make your lashes appear thicker, try lining your upper lashes by running the kohl pencil gently along the upper waterline of your eye.
Sweep on a shimmering shadow
Whilst most make-up gets stripped back, it’s always fun to add a bit of glitter into the mix at festivals, especially for the evenings. A sweep of shimmery champagne shadow across the lid is a great way to add some sparkle, plus, if used lightly, it can double up as a cheek highlight too.
Don’t forget dry shampoo
A festival essential, dry shampoo is a must-have for seeing hair through the second, third and fourth day of camping. Blast roots with the spray before going to sleep, then tie hair up in a high pony or bun overnight. This will give the dry shampoo a few extra hours to soak up any excess oil, so when you wake in the morning and brush through, your hair will look much fresher.
Embrace messy braids
Sometimes even dry shampoo can’t save you. If your hair becomes too much to handle, try styling it into a messy fishtail plait. These braids usually look better with a bit of ‘grit’ to the hair, so they’re great for creating a cool lived-in look on the third or fourth day of a festival.
Pack a mirror
Your make-up will look ten times better if you can actually see what you’re doing, so don’t forget to pack a small compact mirror in your toiletry bag to use in the tent. If you find one small enough to carry in your bag you can also use it for touch-ups throughout the day.
Carry out a quick clean up
Your skin also needs to be looked after, and that means remembering to take your make-up off. Wet wipes are the easiest way to remove everything at the end of the day. Try to find ones that don’t contain alcohol, as these can be drying on skin that is already a little sensitive from sun exposure. If wipes aren’t your style, bring a small bottle of micellar water and some cotton pads – this does the same job and will make light work of eye makeup.
