Injecting the Festival Spirit into your Makeup Look

Neon nails, sparkly shadows and handy hair hacks… here are our favourite beauty products for you to pack in your festival kit.

With Glastonbury been and gone for 2023, we are officially in festival season and this is a theme we are seeing crop up more and more in weddings. Ideal for a laidback and carefree afterparty, throwing your very own festival with your guests is the perfect way to let your hair down and dance with everyone you love. It is also a great opportunity to go wild with your makeup look, particularly if the usual demure bridal look doesn't sum up your personality as well as a glitzy, vivid makeup look would. So grab your glitter and settle down as we take you through some of our favourite products to inject the festival spirit into your makeup look.

Shimmering Shadows

Sparkle and colour in one easy swipe? Sign us up! Having a pop of blue or pink on your lids can be a quick way to change your makeup look from traditional bride to fun-loving party-girl, ensuring your look transforms from day to night as you enter the festival side of the occasion. This Azure Eye Colour Cream from '& Other Stories' is a versatile little number that can build upon any makeup look to add some zhush. The high pigment metallic cream eyeshadow is fast drying and easily blendable and comes in a range of shades so you can match the shadow to your makeup look! 

Looking for a range of colours in one easily accessible compact? The Wild Star Palette from ISAMAYA is perfect for all you cowboys and girls that want to add a rainbow splash to your makeup look. Featuring 12 glistening shades for those who dream of sorbet-colored sunsets and rodeo nights and presented in a gilded gold case embellished with rhinestones, each shade was selected by Isamaya to release your inner wild child. Apply with fingers, blend with a brush, apply on eyes or paint on your face — no rules, no boundaries. You can even add water to the pigments to intensify, or use as liner. How versatile!

Heatless Hair Hacks

Our guess is you probably won't be camping in an actual tent for your festival wedding celebrations, but this Heatless Hair Curler from W7 will give you fresh and bouncy curls without the heat damage! Simply wrap damp hair around the super soft curler and leave to dry for luscious locks. This hair curler may be gentle on hair, but it's sure strong on style. Ideal for beauty prep on the eve of your wedding, you can wake up to perfectly curled, damage-free locks. 

Nailed it!

Another way to express your festival fashions is on the tips of your fingers with some vibrant nail art. Choose a neon shade of green or pink and layer it up with glitter to form the perfect backdrop for that brand new ring on your finger. Passione Nails provide a range of products ideal for your nail art and we are in love with the Lavish Lime nail polish from & Other Stories. 

Feelin' Peachy

We're peachy keen for this collaboration between Primark x I Heart Revolution to create the 'Just Peachy' Eyeshadow Palette. Not only is it housed in the most playfully bright orange packaging (that’s shaped like a peach, obviously), but once this palette flips open it reveals 12 dreamy eyeshadow shades. An assortment of metallic hues, bold colours and neutral options allow you to create a bevy of eye looks, whether you’re seeking to dazzle with shimmers or play with pops of colour, this 12 shade shadow palette is certainly where it’s at for festival makeup!

Peace and Pout

There is no denying that spot-mergencies are stressful, no matter whether you're camping in a tent at a festival or prepping for the big day, but Peace Out Skincare have you covered. Zap that zit with Acne Healing Dots encapsulated with Salicylic Acid to clear up blemishes fast - without the irritation. Retinol helps to promote clear-looking skin while Aloe Vera gently soothes and minimizes the appearance of redness.  In 6 hours or LESS, your breakout looks less red and significantly less annoying. Phew!
