LADIES, festival season is upon us. It’s time to shake it to your favourite band in a field of muddy campers. There will be smiles, hopefully some sun and let’s face it, loads of selfies.
So the question is, how do you look your best after a few nights squished up against your mates in a tent, with no hairdryer and without the usual array of products to hand?
Well, that’s where we can lend a helpful hand. Kate Moss eat your heart out, the Salon Look is about to make sure everyone looks festival fresh and fabulous from top to toe this summer!
The first place to start is your hair. Now girls if you fancy something a bit different this summer, aka Kylie Jenner’s blue locks at Coachella, check out the Colour Wand Hair Mascara. These little gems will cast a colour spell upon your hair and are available in a variety of colour ranges; fashion, natural and glitter.
Whatever you decide to do with the colour of your hair, be it bright orange or a natural brunette, you will want to keep it looking clean. All hail dry shampoo. This phenomenon allows you to add lift to your hair. But more than that it will leave your locks feeling – and looking – soft and refreshed. Check out Techni Art Fresh Dust. To use spray on the root section by section to refresh the hair, not only will it give you instant freshness but it s also great to use to add volume and texture – perfect as a base for creating the perfect fishtail plait on day tow. And one last little dry shampoo tip – don’t spray too close to the root unless you want to look like you’re going grey!
After a day of dancing under the sun and the stars your skin will be crying out for some attention. It’s important not to neglect it, even just for a few days. For ease of use and potential limited access to a water supply I recommend Dermalogica Medibac Skin Purifying Wipes. Whenever you feel the need to freshen up your face, simply wipe and enjoy the instant clean feeling.
While you may not want to start the day in a queue for the showers you - and the person standing next to you – will be glad you did when the DJ tells you to throw your hands up. Evo’s Soap Dodger Body Wash is a great shout as it’s non-drying and gently cleans leaving you feeling clean and raring to go.
Now this is the most important item ladies, sun protection! It is essential that whatever the weather you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, leaving you to worry about more important things – like which band is up next. For your face grab some Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Face Protection, which offers SPF50+ - a must for anyone who is going to be exposed to the sun – as well as being tinted for coverage and an even skin tone.
Finish your look with some make-up that will last the day and night. Pump up your lashes with some Maybelline Mascara Falsies Big Eyes Waterproof in black. This will magnify your eyes making them look wide-awake.
Add to the look with the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Liner 303 Shimmering Black. This has a long-lasting formula, which gives you an intense colour for up to 16 hours. It even has a built-in sharpener means you can also draw a sharp even line, wherever you are!
Stand out from the crowd with a finishing touch of Glitter Lips. From Dark Disorder to Diamond in the Buff the range of colours won’t leave you wanting. Go wild and grab a range of colours to shake things up day to day and make sure you leave everyone wandering who the girl with the glittery lips was!
