5 Festival Minimum Effort Beauty Hacks

The key to festival beauty is long-wear and lightweight. Here’s our laid-back and luscious beauty hacks for anybody heading to Electric Picnic this weekend.


Semi-Permanent Hair Colour

Looking for a non-committal experiment with hair colour for the weekend? Colour the ends of your hair or funk up a greasy ponytail with some streaks of colour from Penneys Mermaid Hair Crayons, €4, that will be gone by Monday.

Rimmel Stay Matte in Fire Starter €7.95

Rimmel’s high impact and long lasting Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks €7.95, deliver up to 12 hours wear. They leave you with a velvety texture instead of the cracked and chalky mattes you might be used to and this particular shade of red, Fire Starter, is a stand out. Minimum effort for maximum results.

Dr. Paw Paw Peach Tinted Mini Balm??5

Dr. PAW PAW’s Tinted Peach Pink Balm?is a multi-purpose lip and cheek tint and the application couldn’t be easier – just dab on your lips and on the apples of your cheeks. All Dr. PAW PAW products are packed with nutrients; papaya moisturises your skin and aloe vera and olive oil will look after it’s texture. With the new mini balms out now in Penneys for €5, that’s a whole lot of benefits packed into one pocket sized product. Top festival hack – if you’re’sticking some diamonds on your for the weekend but afraid of harsh glue on your sensitive skin,??Dr. PAW PAW works perfectly as a gentle adhesive.


Aussie Wash + Blow In A Can

Australian cult beauty brand Aussie has brought out six gorgeous new dry shampoos, so make sure to pick one up to counteract your greasy roots. Our pick is the root-raising Boost Me Up; no chalky residue, it smells delicious and if your hair has fallen flat by Saturday, it will give you lots of volume. If you wake up on Saturday morning with hair that needs professional help, Aussie are here to boost your frazzled fro for you with the?#AussieHair ?Joozh? Bar.?Drag your dirty head to an expert stylist who’ll make you festival ready again with a choice of six styles; beautiful loose boho waves, jazzy braided partings and a range of hair rings. You can check out hair demos, chill out in?an urban playground, rest your feet in?an outdoor lounge, nurse a hangover with’some bespoke Aussie coffees (one is purple!) and a mess around in a GIF booth. Lucky festival-goers who share their photos will be in with a chance of winning a VIP day upgrade for the festival! See you there tomorrow for some boho waves.

Coloured Mascara

If you want to keep your beauty look to a minimum but still want to play around with something colorful for the weekend, stick to a no make-up make-up base (tinted moisturiser, a wash of gloss, a sweep of bronzer) and load up the coloured mascara. The winning shade is Benefit They’re Real in Blue, €26.?

Have a fantastic weekend!
