Summer is just around the corner and that means it’s time to start planning your hair and makeup for the upcoming festivals! Yay! There are no rules when it comes to festival hair and makeup, but we’ve sourced out some of the BEST tricks to make sure your look stays put.
Waterproof mascara is going to be your best friend! Most women don’t leave the house without a bit of mascara, but when you’re going to be dancing up a storm in the summer heat… you should definitely consider a waterproof formula. Yves St Laurent makes a fantastic waterproof mascara that also accentuates the curl in your lashes to create a dramatic, false-eyelash look. Check out Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara.
Be bold and creative! There are no rules when it comes to festival makeup, so now is the time to experiment! Grab some water-based face paint if you love vibrant colors and don’t forget the glitter! To make your eye makeup really pop, you can add a dab of glitter to the inside corners of your eyes. To help the glitter really stick through an entire day of dancing, add a dab of Vaseline first and apply the glitter over top.
Skip the foundation. We know, this sounds like an absolutely insane idea, but just listen. In hot, humid temperatures, makeup has a tendency to melt and drip down your face and that’s not an attractive look on anyone. Focus on keeping your makeup as light as possible by skipping the heavy foundation and opting for a BB cream or tinted moisturizer (with SPF!). Or if you really want to get crazy, go completely bare skinned! We have an entire line of facial brushes that will help make this a reality! Check out our Cora 7-in-1 Complete Face and Body Spa System – it’s one of our best sellers and is your ticket to clear, glowing skin.
Let your beauty tools do double duty! Festivals are all about cutting loose and having fun, not being a slave to your beauty routine. Bring along tools that can multi task – use a straightener to create a sleek, shiny look one day and then mix it up with tousled, beachy waves the next. Fancii’s Satin Salon Pro straightener is the perfect tool for this job! It’s tourmaline-infused ceramic plates distribute heat evenly and lock in moisture in each strand.
Don’t forget your dry shampoo! A great dry shampoo can be a girl’s best friend in the summer. Sweat can weigh down hair, leaving you with listless, heavy strands. A couple quick sprays with a dry shampoo, like Batiste’s Tropical, can invigorate your hair and freshen it up with a fun coconut fragrance. It’s a total game changer for those hot summer festivals!
