As festival season is in full swing, its time to get prepared! I love going to festivals and of course I love makeup so I love to experiment to create fun and easy festival looks. But I often like to keep it simple for festivals too, usually from the second day because I need more sleep as I am basically 79! Natural Collection have a great range of inexpensive products which are great to get festival ready!
If you are going to a festival this summer in the UK it is going to be pretty hot weather or chuck it down with rain, or both - you know England! These four products are great to use for an easy five minute face before you head out the door to enjoy the festival weekend. For nails I like to keep it pretty simple, if I have time I might do some basic nail art but I usually just apply a few coats of polish and I am good to go! The nail polish from Natural Collection in Hibiscus is a gorgeous hot pink which I have been wearing on my nail a lot recently. These nail polishes apply evenly and this shade in particular is the colour you see in the bottle with two thin coats. It drys really quickly and has a gorgeous glossy finish.
For the face I like to use as few products as possible so that I don't have to worry about them melting off throughout the day. The Caribbean Crush Tinted Lip Balm is great to have in your bag to apply throughout the day to keep your lips hydrated, I always find at festivals that my lips get pretty dry from the sun! This lightly tinted lip balm has a great glossy finish too. For eyes a waterproof mascara a must, I think every festival I have been to it has rained at some point throughout the weekend! The WaterGuard Mascara is waterproof and smudge proof so you won't have to worry with this mascara about it budging! I really like this mascara as it makes my lashes pretty long and thickened.
For face I like to use as few products as possible as I know they are going to end up sweating off. The CoverUp Stick Conceler in Fair is a great match for me and gives me a light to meduim coverage making it perfect for good skin days. As it is in a stick form it is so easy to apply as you can apply it directly to the areas of the face that need concealing and blend out with either a brush or your fingers, I prefer to use my fingers with this. If you do want a little more coverage than just a concealer I really like the Tinted Moistuiser from Natural Collection (I talked about this product here).
