Festival season is finally upon us and you’re probs sorting out accommodation (tent or caravan?), going through your outfit choices and thinking of the right makeup to go with it. Stuck on the last one? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. From nails to hair, here’s how you win the festival glam game.
YOUR FESTIVAL GLAM, SORTED
By Nelly Gergi, 11 July 2019
If you don't want to go full glitterball or kaleidoscope, a cat eye in a highlighter-pen hue is a subtle way to amp up your everyday glam. For this one we used the Shrine Pigment Bundle combined with NYX Multitasker Mixing Medium. As this is the ideal time to be a little bit extra, add another line of colour for bonus points – and don't be shy on the wing. To finish, all you need is mascara, a strong brow and a sun-kissed glow.
Think of this as a French manicure, festival edition 2.0. Cos why wouldn’t you have all the colours of the neon rainbow at your fingertips? Also, as highlighter-pen palettes are one of the biggest trends this season, this look may just happen to match with exactly everything in your festival wardrobe. At least that's one less thing to worry about.
If you ask us, there's always an appropriate time to wear a bit of glitter, but if there’s ever a perfect time, a festival is it. We’re particularly loving a glossy sparkly lip that pays homage to the 90s glam of our childhood dreams. Keep Lottie Glitter Glass in your bum bag for lipgloss touch-ups throughout the day.
You’re dancing and running around all day so the last thing you need is to worry about your hair every five minutes, right? For a foolproof festival 'do, tie your fresh blow dry into a high ponytail and keep sneaky flyaways in place with a strong-hold hair wax. Try out different hair accessories, like embellished clips, which ICYMI are a major thing this season.
