10 festival skin, hair and makeup products you need this summer

The start of festival season is here.

With Coachella kicking off this weekend in California, we’ve been left thinking about the inspiring beauty looks that are set to grace our Instagram feeds – think lots of glitter and bright colours.

Not only do we have our pots of glitter at the ready to recreate said festival beauty looks, we’re gearing up to start ticking off products from our packing list too as we festival prep.

It’s a given that you’ll need to pack the necessities such as hand sanitiser, wellies and a bumbag, but it’s equally important to pack a few festival-inspired beauty products for next-level hair and makeup.

Here are the beauty products to experiment with and pack alongside your flower crown this festival season.

Usually your hair routine would go out the window at festivals, but if you’re camping in luxury there’s the possibility you’ll be hooked up to electricity, so packing your favourite hair tool is a no-brainer.

Ahead of Coachella, ghd have launched a new platinum+ styler as part of their festival collection and it’s gorgeous.

The styler has been dusted in soft rainbow hues and will make an easy job of a pro festival hairstyle thanks to its cutting edge predictive technology – only one stroke is needed to get the perfect finish on all hair types.

Glossier Glitter Gelée

If you’re not wearing glitter are you even at a festival?

Glossier’s new Glitter Gelée is our top pick because it has a transparent gel base, so there will be no glitter bomb disasters inside your tent when applying.

There’s also four shades to pick from including, Phantasm an opalescent with holographic specks and Bijoux Bijoux a metallic gunmetal with flecks of platinum, that will outshine the rest of your makeup bag contents.

Place the glitter all over your lids, bling out your crease, or apply a dab, here, there and well, everywhere.
