With numerous UK and European music festivals taking place over the next few weeks – here are the top beauty essentials to pack in your rucksack this festival season. 

Even if you’re sleeping in a tent,your beauty routine doesn’t have to go down the drain, and these simple, key items will help you look festival chic and feeling great throughout!

No 1: Baby Wipes

With limited access to showers in many festivals, you’ll thank me suggesting you pack baby wipes! Cheap and cheerful, baby wipes will keep you feeling fresh and ready to party throughout the festival.

No 2: Dry Shampoo 

Keeping your hair looking fresh and clean is a difficult task when attending any festival! Dry shampoo is essential, adding a blast of freshness to your hair and keeping it looking and smelling its best, even in the worst conditions. Miniature bottles of dry shampoo are also available from around £2.99, perfect for squeezing in to your bag!

No 3: Vaseline 

Apply to lips, eyelashes, cheeks, eyelids – and you've got an all in one festival beauty essential! Not only will Vaseline moisturize your skin, but it will also add a slight sheen and gloss to wherever you apply, giving you a fresh faced glow (even if you don’t feel fresh faced after a few days of festival partying).

No 4: Waterproof Mascara

Don’t get caught out in UK weather! Panda's aren't attractive, so be prepared for festival showers with waterproof mascara to add volume and length to your eyelashes.

No 5: Hair Accessories 

By day 2, your hair may not be looking its best, but by cleverly using hair accessories such as plaited hair bands and clip in hair pieces, you can look festival chic on every photograph. I love this flower braided hairband from Pauls Hair World, ideal for keeping your hair out of your face and follow in the hair style footsteps of celebs including Lauren Conrad and Vanessa Hudgens.

No 6: Face wipes 

You may not feel fresh after a few days sleeping in a tent, but this shouldn’t be reflected by your skin. Use face wipes to remove dirt and makeup thought-out the festival, I love Johnson’s range of refreshing facial cleansing wipes, available Superdrug for only £1.52.

No 7: Sun Screen

We all know how inconsistent UK weather can be, so prepare for all types of weather when packing your bag this summer, and this includes sunscreen. There’s nothing worse than sunburn, especially when sleeping in a tent, so apply your sunscreen daily throughout the festival.

No 8: Tinted Moisturiser

Applying makeup in a festival can be a difficult task – and this is where tinted moisturiser comes in. Simply apply evenly, add a touch of mascara and you’re done – effortless beauty at its best!
