Fes­ti­val fab­u­lous

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Beauty -


Be pre­pared to swap your soak in the tub for a good old mud bath. Hard­core Glas­ton­bury go­ers can go up to five days with­out so much as a sniff of a warm shower.

If the lack of lathering-up fa­cil­i­ties sends you into a panic, freshen up with Halo’s pack of De­odor­ant Wipes, 99p (Tesco/ Asda), right.

Fol­low up with Triple Dry’s an­tiper­spi­rant roll-on, £6.99 (Boots/Su­per­drug), said to keep you sweat-free for 72 hours so you can wave your arms to your favourite band mi­nus whiffy pongs.

For those that do brave the wa­ter sup­ply, think less mud, more freshly mown lawn with Lush’s Grass Shower Gel, from £4.45 (01202 668545/www. lush.co.uk), right.

When all else fails, fake a freshly washed laun­dry aroma with Clean Sum­mer Linen Eau Fraiche, £32 (John Lewis).


With­out the lux­ury of blow-dries, con­di­tion­ing treat­ments and straight­en­ing irons, your fes­ti­val tresses may need to take on a whole new lease of life.

Give your locks ex­tra longevity and guard against grease with Batiste’s Boho Dry Sham­poo in a handy mini spray, £1.49 (Boot/Su­per­drug), right.

Even if your head doesn’t even up hit­ting the camp bed pil­low for long, bed-head hair a la Kate Moss is one way to rock a fashionably di­shev­elled look. For per­fectly tou­sled hair in a flash try All Nighter Styling Pow­der, £18.95 (www.vic­to­ri­a­health.com).

When hair goes truly hay­wire, plaits are the way for­ward, as seen on the cat­walk at Alexan­der Wang.

Tame hair into sub­mis­sion with Boots Mini Metal­lic Hair Brush, £1, and wear loosely over one shoul­der se­cured with Trevor Sor­bie’s Hair Bands, £3 (Boots), avail­able in black, blonde or brunette to match your hair colour.


Fes­ti­val-go­ers are gen­er­ally split into two beauty camps... Those that just want to stay smelling sweet and those born to stand out from the crowd.

If you’re in the lat­ter, you’re happy to sparkle your way through the mud. Go for a full-on glam rock look with Ur­ban De­cay’s Heavy Metal Glit­ter Eye­lin­ers, £12.50 each at Deben­hams.

Reach for the stars and em­bel­lish your face with glitz. You can care­fully use eyelash glue to se­cure StarGazer’s Glit­ter Stars into the per­fect fa­cial for­ma­tion, £2 a pot (www.stargazer-prod­ucts.com), above.

Turn your tresses into a talk­ing point with a shock­ing state­ment colour us­ing tem­po­rary ColourFX Spray, £3 (Su­per­drug).

For a pop of lip colour, de­signer di­vas shouldn’t be with­out Dior’s Ad­dicted to Dior Jeweled Lip Gloss Duo, £42 at Sel­fridges, be­low which you can clip to your fes­ti­val hand­bag for post smooching touch-ups dur­ing the slow
