The Festival Essentials

Festival Beauty Essentials

With Glastonbury just shy of a week away, festival season is soon to kick off with a vengeance. So alongside your sunglasses, pac-a-mac, wellies and enough dry shampoo to ‘clean’ a Mammoth (we like this {one}), equip yourself with our edit of beauty essentials, to guarantee you look gorgeous, in spite of not having seen water for days (rain doesn’t count!).

We’ve painstakingly compiled a comprehensive list of must-haves – from Stila’s 10-in-1 (does-everything-bar-cook-you-dinner) {Beauty Balm}, to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ waterproof {Lash Genius} (it’s like a clear umbrella for your lashes); we’ve got gold leaf skin enhancement, peacock feathers for your fingernails and the most luxurious rinse-free hand wash known to woman (it’s far too wonderful to waste on men-folk). So follow the link below, and prepare to exude cool when you identify an icon in the loo queue.

Currently on maternity leave, raising Cult Beauty’s honorary ‘word nerd’, Tabitha, she speaks fluent ‘beauty’ and loves nothing more than the marriage of language and lip balm (and cleanser and candles… ad infinitum).

You can trust her to debunk widespread beauty myths and dispense invaluable advice with ease…
