LOOK GOOD, NO MATTER HOW MUDDY IT GETS!
Post by Hannah Tyrrell
Summer is within reach and festival fever is on the rise! Snaps of the A-list at Coachella have got us all dying to rock out with strangers in a field. But with high expectation comes major pressure – none more so than what to wear!
While festival season is all about letting go, these events (like any other) require some serious ‘look’ planning. And while we haven’t quite got the fashion credentials of some, festival style 2017 is all above the shoulders, honey. So, get ready for Festival Trends 101 – packed with makeup tips and easy hairstyles – with love from your Festi Godmother…
Not just a festival look, 2017 demands glitter in bucketfuls! Whether it’s your lips, eyes, cheeks or brows, if you’re not glittery AF then you damn well better make it happen, ASAP. The best thing about glitter makeup? Not only is it on-trend, but it’s super fun, versatile and perfect for your festival look this summer!
Not feeling full-on glitter? Why not punt for a subtle shimmer with Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse Gold, face, body and hair oil? Or double-up by protecting your skin at the same time with a little Ultrasun Glimmer!

If you’re not part of the glitterati, then why not embrace a bit of intergalactic style with gems, transfers, chrome and graphic shapes? This purple, shimmer smokey eye and star eye look is perfect for nailing Space Age chic. Pair with on-trend chrome mirror nails and metallic finishing touches and you’re onto something…
Take Coachella makeup inspo from Miss Jasmine Tooks this festival season and embrace a glowing face. Strobing is a summer favourite, and perfect for festival-goers, if you’re going big in the fashion stakes. Keep it natural and glowy with a dab of Manna Kadar Glo Illuminator and a slick of glossy LipLock Stain and you’ll #ShineBright, girl!

When it comes to festival hairstyles, it’s a case of whatever hides the grease come day two. Thankfully, festival trends seem to take this into account when setting themselves (thank God). Braids are taking on a new lease of life this summer and they’re perfect for unwashed hair. Go for tight, neat braids with optional flashes of colour in any which way you like!
Bored of braids? Get your bun on with a top knot or double buns for a super cute and easy hairstyle alternative.
Pop of Colour
Still stuck for makeup ideas? When in doubt, go for a pop of colour! Lipstick is a simple and safe option, but experimenting with eyeliner, eyeshadows and even mascara is sure to get you noticed for all the right reasons.
