Festival Beauty Essentials

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.

Now all you need to do is cover yourself head to toe in glitter, grab a hundred wet wipes, and horde an obscene amount of dry shampoo before getting on your way.

Have a fest-tastic time, Babellines! Let’s catch up once you’re back and you’ve washed. (At least three times.)

Live Forever

When you’re up with one sunrise and asleep after the next one, you want your makeup to last as long as you do. And that’s way more achievable than getting clean in your first post-festival shower.

  • Waterproof mascara

Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara will prevent smudges and smears, even when you’re sobbing your heart out like a fangirl during your fave song.

  • Budge-proof eyeliner

Our Lasting Drama Gel Pot slays for 24 hours, and it comes with its very own easy-to-use brush.

  • Stay all-day concealer

No sleep? No problem! Try our Eraser Eye 24 hour Under Eye concealer.

TOP TIP: Try our Superstay 24H Setting Spray

I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor

Surrounded by thousands of people, you want to stand out from the crowd. And not for face-planting in the mud, or falling off your best friends shoulders.

A comfortable matte lipstick that won’t dry your lips, Color Sensational Creamy Mattes in Craving Coral can be seen all the way from the stage.


  • Rock ‘n’ gold

Our Rock Nudes Palette will make you look like a rock chick who trashes hotel rooms. (Even though you’re spending the night squished into your dad’s old one-man tent with five pals.)


  • Electrifying look

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


TOP TIP: Use Master Sculpt to contour and define your best features and complete your stand-out look.

Just want to pack a few essentials? Make it the only products you’ll need to get that classic boho-chic festival look.


  • Sun-kissed glow

This look starts with a summery, bronzed face. Try our Dream Bronze BB, which has the added benefit of being an SPF.


  • Stand-out brows
No boho-look would be complete without natural but dramatic brows. Use Brow Drama for ultimate fleekness.

  • Shimmering nudes

For the ultimate hippy vibe, use a mix of our Colour Show Monos in Lustrous Beige, Ashy Wood and Sultry Sand.


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.
