Fes­ti­val sea­son is upon us but muddy ground is no ex­cuse for giv­ing up on glam­our...

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Beauty -

YOU may have to fling your usual beauty regime out of the tent win­dow, but you can still com­bine mosh pits and pam­per­ing. Cram your back­pack with fes­ti­val an­ti­dotes so you’re look­ing more head­line act than stage­hand.

A field full of mud, por­taloos and burger vans may not seem like the ob­vi­ous set­ting for van­ity but ev­ery year fes­ti­val go­ers just keep turn­ing up the beauty vol­ume with camp sur­vival chic.

Stay fes­ti­val fab­u­lous, rain or shine, with our SOS guide.


Back­stage VIPs may have ac­cess to makeover sta­tions and tan­ning booths, but for those of us who don’t have pa­parazzi stalk­ers, the prospect of back-to-ba­sics beauty beck­ons.

Multi-use prod­ucts are your se­cret weapon for in­stant makeovers with min­i­mal fuss so you can spend more time soak­ing up the at­mos­phere.

Rain, sweat or groupie tears, you’ll need a wa­ter­proof mas­cara to with­stand fes­ti­val el­e­ments, like Max Fac­tor’s Aqua Lash, £6.99 (na­tion­wide).

If the fore­cast’scast’s more like scorch­ing sun­shine, avoid the burnt Rudolph nose and carry Marks & Spencer’s por­ta­ble SPF50 Sun Stick, £5, right.

Bag Ben­e­fit’s Rush Hour, £17.50 (www.ben-ben­e­fit­cos­met-ics.co.uk), a 2-in-1 stick to add colour to your lips and cheeks in sec­onds.

Put te­dious cleanse, tone and mois­turise rou­tines on hold and wipe away the day’s grime in a jiffy with Neu­tro­gena’s Deep Clean Make-Up Re­mover Wipes, £2.99 (0845 601 5789), right.
