People say there are only four seasons. Those people are wrong. Festival season is legit, it’s fast approaching, and there’s so much more to prepping than just stuffing last year’s muddy tent into a bag and dousing your wellies in deodorant.
Before you don your denim shorts and French-plait flowers in your hair, check out our list of festival beauty essentials.

Our Color Show Neon Pastels in Electric Blue will have your nails popping, even when you’re stopping.

TOP TIP: Lips should look subtle and natural with a slight shimmer. Baby Lips Moisturising Gloss in A Wink Of Pink will perfect your pout and keep your smackers soft all day.
