Beauty headliners: The must-pack beauty products for festival season

Festivals really are the time to throw your beauty rulebook out the window.

They’re the one place where a simple slick of mascara and a fresh blow-dry looks more out of place than donning glitter boobs and unwashed, grass-scattered hair. And that’s saying something.

With the nation’s growing obsession with festivals, our favourite brands are by creating lines of products dedicated to the whimsical dreaminess of the week-long mudfests.

If you’re still confused, think glitter in every shade of the rainbow, stamp-on stars and the boldest eyeshadow colours and stick-on jewels.

Of course, there’s some sensible souls who are kindly catering to the practical stuff too: think fold-up mirrors courtesy of Magic Mirror, purse-friendly dry shampoos from Colab and mist spray SPF for long days in the sun via Clinique.

Brands are also wising up about the environment, like The Gypsy Shrine who have launched biodegradable glitter in response to findings on its potential ecological hazard, and Epic Wipes who boast totally sustainable wet wipes.
