What’s in my Festival Make-Up Bag? 5 Essentials

Festival Season is upon so this is what you need in your make-up bag, 5 Essentials to keep you looking your best.

1.     BB Cream

You want to look good but you don’t want to spend hours doing your make-up so this is the best option.

I just got this L’OrĂ©al Nud3e Magique BB Cream on offer in Boots, gonna try it out!


2.     Waterproof Mascara

Self explanatory, opening up your eyes and making you look awake. It is a long weekend with little sleep.

And I’m all out! It’s on the shopping list. I want to get this Catrice waterproof mascara I’ve been sneaking from over at Beauty-La-Linda


3.     Lip balm

Ideally with an SPF. Protect your lips you will be outdoors all weekend.

I’m using this Carmex Mint at the moment, its nearly gone… (hmm maybe I’ll do an empties post as I’m running out of everything) but I love its fresh feel and minty smell and it has SPF 15!


4.     SPF Sun Screen

You want good memories not sunburn and skin damage so pack some sun screen.

Choose your factor depending on your skin tone, I like the Soltan Once Face in factor 30 as it doesn’t make my eyes water like others! But this 50+ is good for fair skin. And these come in handy make-up bag friendly sizes!!!


5.     Baby Wipes

It could be a messy weekend, fix your make-up and clean the mud from your stuff for a Euro it’s worth it.

Just picked these up in Tesco while doing my food shopping!


Anything you would add to my list?

Top 10 Festival Fashion

Festival season is truly in full swing so after sorting out your tickets and your tent the next step is sorting out your wardrobe.

You want to look good while also having some degree of functionality!

Kate Moss is the Patron Saint of Glastonbury style as per POPSUGAR so taking inspiration from her previous looks and the high street trends I have come up with some must haves


1.       Wellies

Be it Hunter Wellies or spotty crazy wellies we need them!! #(shoe addiction)

Fashion and function check!


2.       Rain Coat

Let’s face it, it could rain!  I think the way tom go is one of these handy bum bag type rain coats and these days they come in cute colours and designs!

Not too heavy and awkward if it doesn’t rain and not taking up much space in your bag.

Fashion and function Check!



3.       Ripped up denim shorts

A festival stable spanning generations, if it’s not broken don’t fix it!


4.       Top

Add your own style, the crop top is big this season, try it if its your thing. Add the boho look with this leather top from ASOS.COM or this off the shoulder number from NewLook.

Or go for the tried and trusted band tee or acid washed tees.

5. Oversized Jumper

As you can never tell what our weather will be like you might as well stay warm.

I spotted these AllSaints men’s jumpers which I need, thinking XL with a cute belt jumper dress thing going on!


6.       Bag

The backpack is in this season so look around and find one you like! ASOS have this leather fringed on while Primark have a selection from imitation leather to denim.


7.       Oversized Sunglasses

like these aviators from River Island


8.       Hat

Prevent sun stroke and stay stylish try this fedora from…

9.       Accessorize

Another area where you can show your personality, from chunky jewellery to feathers and flowers it’s up to you there is so much choice out there!


10.   The make-up Survival bag but that’s another post! Read Here!

So that’s my Top 10 Festival Fashion Essentials.

Most high street stores now offer festival shops on their websites so check them out for more inspiration.

Enjoy the festival season fashionistas!
