Festival Essentials for a Beauty-aholic

imagesFestival season is finally here. Although iv already been to my festival I know there are a lot more to come for you lovely lot from England and all around the world.

For me its important to attempt to still look good even if you are camping in a muddy field for 5 days. Saying that you want to pack light…after all it is you carrying it all along with everything else you need. I think i managed to do that quite successfully, hence this post..


Before you get started on the beauty essentials…everything else comes first.

  • Ticket (festival and travel)
  • Moneyfestival-tent-pack
  • ID
  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Toilet roll (trust me)
  • Food and drink (festival prices are radiculas , its worth it to save a fortune)
  • Bin bags
  • Torch (small and large-ish)
  • Wet wipes (99% of the time you wont want to use the showers…)
  • Any prescribed medications
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, tooth paste,deodorant)
  • Small bag (with a secure zip)
  • Clean/warm clothes
  • Suncream
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Wellies
  • Festival phone
  • Ladies..you no the drill..tampons and pads just in case!

Not so essential..essentials!

  • Pillow and roll mat (if you want to be comfy)
  • Ear plugs
  • Dry shampoo
  • Painkillers
  • Perfume or body spray
  • Camera (not your best please! just a cheapy one)
  • Blanket
  • Sun glasses
  • Foldup chair

Beauty related!

  • Face wipes (3 in 1 cleanse tone moisturize)
  • Moisturiser
  • Tonermakeup tips
  • Everyday makeup
  • Glitter eyeliner (or any fun colours you could try out)
  • Accessories and jewelery (again not your best just cheapy)
  • Fun hat to hide that festival hair
  • Tinted after sun (to give you a bit of a glow)
  • Cooling facial spray
  • Lip balm and bright lipsticks
  • Dry shampoo
  • Hand cream
  • Fun hair accessories

Clothes (depending on how many days..i went for 5)

  • 5x tops
  • 2x shorts
  • 2x leggings
  • 1x jeans
  • 2x jumper
  • 1x hoodie
  • 6x socks
  • 6x underwear
  • 1x onesie! (lived in mine on the camp site. so warm!)
  • 1x rain coat

A few quick tips

  1. If the camp site has lockers please please use them!! I got money stolen from my tent while i was asleep on my first night. Please don’t let this put you off..there is always one bad cookie among thausands
  2. Spreed your money out in different places if there are no lockers
  3. Budget. You don’t want to run out of money on the first day
  4. Pack lightly. Your going to be lugging all this quite a long way
  5. Use a grannies shopping trolley for the heavy stuff. Perfect for festivals
  6. Be prepared for any weather even if you have checked the weather reports
  7. Be safe…use a condom! Seriously.. (just had to throw that one in there)
  8. Try not to lose your friends and always make a meeting point just in case
  9. HAVE FUN! your only young once. Make the most of it

I’m sure there’s a few bits and bobs iv missed out. If you can think of any please comment below and il try and add them in.

Stay tuned for my festivals outfit posts

Have a brilliant time guys and be safe
