If you’re heading to Electric Picnic this weekend, packing your beauty bag should be the least of your worries
Iv’e rounded up my ultimate festival beauty bits to make tent-based skincare and rave-worthy makeup looks as easy as possible, without overpacking your backpack.
Don’t head down to Stradbally without packing these:
No festival makeup bag is complete without a full-size bottle of dry shampoo.
You never know what kind of elements your hair will encounter over a 3-day weekend, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. Plus with showers a distant memory, it keeps your hair looking and smelling fresh.
Makeup wipes are not the best for the environment, so it’s essential that brands follow in Nivea’s footsteps to create a biodegradable offering.
Very few people have time for a cleanse/tone/moisturise routine while sitting in a tent, so a makeup wipe that wont weigh on your conscience.
An organic eye cream will keep those eyes looking fresh and awake, no matter how little sleep you got the night before.
If worst comes to worse – just cover those eye bags up with more glitter.
A rainbow palette is an absolute necessity when it comes to creating sickening festival makeup looks.
The new Me, Myself And Mmmmitchell Pressed Pigment Palette from Beauty Bay keeps things interesting, with a combination of neutrals and acid bright tones.
When it comes to festivals, you need a low-maintenance lip look. Between pints, singing songs at the main stage and tucking into street food, it’s not the place for a loaded lip.
The Vice Lip Chemistry glosses create a subtle tint and shine that lasts, without the need for regular top ups.
PS… Biodegradable Glitter
Penneys recently launched a selection of biodegradable glitters – perfect for a stand-out festival makeup look.
The glitters are not made of the usual micro-plastics that regular glitter is, so you don’t need to worry about leaving flecks of plastic in your wake while frolicking in a field in Stradbally.
No matter what the weather forecast, sunscreen is an essential.
Rain of shine, slathering on the sun shield is the only way to ensure your skin is safe from the elements. Best of all, P20’s offering gives 10 hours reliable sun protection with just one application – so you don’t need to run back to the tent for a top-up.
If you struggle with dry hair and dry shampoo isn’t for you, a conditioning misk can keep hair sleek when you’re not washing it.
The Aussie scent-sational mist keeps hair smelling fab while protecting it from the elements.
Fancy a fresh set of lashes for every day of EP?
The SOSU By SJ Weekend Vibes lash set is on sale right now at almost half price.
Bahama Body Fake Tan
Bahama Body is Terrie McEvoy’s new foray into the tanning business – and she definitely nailed it.
The tan has an olive base-tone that lasts for days – perfect for festival season. It’s also only €10 from Penneys.
