10 Electric Picnic beauty essentials that have to make it into your makeup bag

Festival glitter and tent-friendly skincare


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:

Batiste dry shampoo

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.

Nivea Biodegradable Makeup Wipes

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.

Garnier Organic Lavandin Anti Age Eye Cream

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.

Me, Myself And Mmmmitchell Pressed Pigment Palette

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.

Urban Decay Vice Lip Chemistry 

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.

Riemann P20 Sun Screen 

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.

Aussie Scent-sational Conditioning Mist Protect

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.

SOSU by SJ Weekend Vibes Lash Set

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.
