3) TAKE VS LEAVE
Travelling as light as possible is the only way to go in terms of packing for a festival. We explore what you should leave versus what you should take when it comes to festival beauty essentials...
THINKING ABOUT THE HAIR...
Ditch the big bulky hairbrush! Yes it's fab and you've had it for 2847 years and you can't possibly do your hair without it, but it's time to invest in a Tangle Teezer. You won't go back.
TAKE the compact brush that tangles your knots with no tears
LEAVE the big bulky hairbrush that isn't actually that great, takes up space and weighs a ton
Browse our whole range of Tangle Teezers here.
*THE WHOLE MAKE UP SITUATION*
DITCH the everyday makeup. Yawn!
Festivals are about expressing yourself, the latest boho fashion and well, being a bit mental.
These are the only places in the world you can spray neon paint on your cheek, drape gold dust down your eyes and wear purple mascara at once and you'll be the coolest gal around (if not, completely normal!).
TRY coloured mascara, a completely different colour lipstick and drop some gold dust under your eye line.
We recommend this Chanel Gold Shadow Dust. SHOP NOW.
CLARINS PLUM MASCARA - SHOP NOW £17.99
CLARINS WONDER MASCARA IN MINT - SHOP NOW £8.59
SMELLING AWESOME OF COURSE
Don't take a huge bottle of expensive perfume, a huge bottle of deodorant and some body spray too - Instead take a small amount of each.
The best invention ever however is body mist. BODY MIST!
It's a perfumed mist and it is like deo, perfume and body spray all in one. Super handy for carrying around in your over-the-shoulder bag too!
We LOOOVE the Victoria's Secret body mists; the flavours available are ridiculously gorgeous.
