We have put together the best beauty tips for the perfect festival look for you, so that you can party fresh and radiant again in the morning without much effort:
Preparations at home – save time with the right planning
Successful preparation is the A&O for the perfect festival visit. It is best to make a packing list so that there are no nasty surprises at the festival site because you forgot important items. You can also prepare a few things in advance when it comes to beauty: Many festival visitors, for example, have their hair removed with wax shortly beforehand so that they can do without shaving during the festival. This saves you a lot of time and also space in your backpack because you can do without your razor and shaving foam. It is also particularly practical for the festival visit if you have your eyebrows and eyelashes tinted a few days before. You don't have to worry as much about your looks (bye, panda eyes) and worry that your eyebrows will be gone after a sweaty stage dive or a short rain shower. By the way, this is very useful not only for festivals, but for the whole summer.
Also schedule your time so that you can wash your hair shortly before departure. As a result, they do not become greasy so quickly and stay fresh for a little longer.
Dry shampoo - lifesaver at the festivalNo time, no attractive sanitary facilities, an endless queue for the showers and then only cold water - there are many reasons not to wash your hair at festivals. You still want to look fresh and not have greasy hair? Dry shampoo will help you with that! After just a few seconds, your hair looks neater, fuller and, above all, freshly washed. Simply spray the dry shampoo onto your hairline, let it work for a moment, then massage it in with your fingers and then comb it out with the hairbrush. Be careful not to hold the aerosol can too close to your head - this way you avoid shooting a huge amount of dry shampoo out of the can that can then no longer be distributed. Spot alert! By the way: dry shampoos without propellant gas are not only good for the environment, they also don't run the risk of exploding in your backpack if you shake too hard...
PS: In some drugstores, the dry shampoo is also available in a compact travel size.
Make-up - which products you really need at the festival
Leave your big make-up case at home and limit your visit to the festival to only the essentials. First thing you pack is your concealer - it hides your dark circles and makes you look fresh and lively in the morning. A light B&B Cream pampers your skin with sufficient moisture and gives it a delicate tint. An absolute must-have is waterproof mascara. Rain, sweat and beer showers can't harm you and you don't look like a raccoon even after several hours of rocking. Ditch your lipsticks, too, and pack a tinted lip balm instead. You can apply this quickly and easily, even when everyone else is queuing up in front of the mirror. To give your look that certain something extra, we recommend glitter. Whether as a highlighter on the cheeks, as a fine accent on the lids, or as an eye-catcher on your nails - glitter always works, but you shouldn't overdo it
Tip: Pack a small pocket mirror. This does not take up much space in your bag and saves you long walks and waiting times at the sanitary facilities.
Make-up removal - 1,2,3 done
Even after a long night of partying at the festival, you shouldn't forget to remove your make-up before you go to bed. Otherwise, your skin will have enlarged pores and blemishes after just a few days. In order to save you the trip to the mostly dimly lit sanitary facilities in the evening, we recommend that you simply pack moist make-up remover wipes. These are space-saving, effective and easy to use. Without much effort, you can simply remove your make-up in the tent before going to bed - so say goodbye to your usual excuses.
Sun Protection - Protect your skinSunscreen, hat, sunglasses – you must not do without these three utensils under any circumstances. It is best to apply sunscreen every morning to prevent nasty surprises. Even if it's a bit cloudy, you can get a sunburn from the UV rays. Whether it's a scarf, cap or hat, headgear protects you from sunstroke and is a good way to hide greasy hair. The sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun, reduce wrinkles, hide dark circles and give your look the finishing touch.
