Our top five beauty items that every girl needs to survive festival fever while looking effortlessly glam.

Festival season is just around the corner; you have your tickets bought, your camping gear ready to go and outfits planned for any eventuality. But what about your festival beauty products? Here are our top five beauty items that won’t break the bank to help you survive festival fever while looking effortlessly glam.

Catrice BB Allround Foundation Multi-Benefit Make Up

Catr_BB_AllroundFound_Tube23010

The name pretty much says it all, save time on your beauty regime with this little wonder. It has an SPF of 30, moisturises, minimizes pores, illuminates and protects your skin all while providing a medium coverage. What more do you want in the morning?

L’Or?al Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

loreal

Ditch the face wipes and takes off your makeup/mud/glitter and whatever else has been on your skin all day quickly with a swipe of a cotton pad. Again saves precious sleeping time by dissolving make up (even waterproof mascara!), toning skin and removing impurities. Win.

VO5 Refresh Me Quick Dry Shampoo

VO5-Refresh-Me-Quick-450x45_tcm72-361084

Keep your hair smelling good and looking clean on day 2 by spritzing some dry shampoo on your roots to absorb excess oil. It also adds texture and volume for a chic tousled style a la Kate Moss.

Catrice Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish

Catr_MadeToStay_SmootingLipPolish_60

The last thing you want to worry about when you’re dancing to your favourite bands is if your lipstick is still on. We love this lip polish by Catrice; it has the durability of a stain yet looks like a gloss. Plus it lasts 8 hours, so peace and pout in those photos without worrying!

Max Factor False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara

max-factor-false-lash-effect-waterproof-mascara-black-157832

Raccoon eyes don’t look good on anyone (sorry, Taylor Momsen). So prevent your mascara migrating by using waterproof mascara that will last through any showers and keep your peepers framed all day.
