Festival season is approaching and with Coachella starting again this weekend, we thought it would make sense to offer a few festival beauty tips.

Keep it simple

Don’t take your whole make up kit with you. Stick to the basics of a great base, eyeliner, bronzer, mascara and a lipstick/lipgloss. You don’t need all the colors under the sun, just take a few favourites. It’s also important that you take your make up off each night (morning…) before rolling into your tent to catch a few hours of sleep.

Tackle blemishes quickly

No one wants a big party to be ruined by a blemish. Use an emergency treatment cream from brands like Proactiv or Witch. These will help to treat spots, reduce redness and keep swelling down too.

Bronzer is your friend

If you feel in the need for a healthy glow then dust on some bronzer. Something sparkly will certainly stand out at a festival and can be used for contouring too.

Drink water

As well as your regular drink of choice, make sure you’re drinking around 64 oz of water a day. This will keep you hydrated and will help to keep your skin clear. This is so, so important if you’re at a festival that takes place under the baking hot sun.

Wear sunscreen

Sunburn can ruin your fun but it can also lead to all sorts of problems in the future. Yes, a tan might be sexy but premature ageing and skin cancer aren’t. Be sensible, if you’re going to be out in the sun all day, slap on some sunscreen.
