Iv’e been getting a lot of questions lately about what I bring to festivals. Given that I was at one last weekend I thought now would be the perfect time to share what I brought.

  1. The Essentials: Now first things first do not forget the essentials by this I mean your Photo ID, Ticket and Money. You will not be getting into any fesitval without these items.
  2. Portable charger: How are you going to take those lit Instagram photos with no battery….. I always bring a portable charger because you never know when your phone might die and you may need to contact your friends. Primark sell portable chargers in the holiday section for 5 euro.
  3. Tissues: I think this is self explanatory with festivals. Tissues are always a must with any outdoor festivals.
  4. Makeup: I always bring a little bit of makeup to top up throughout the day… from lash glue to face gems whatever you need to keep you looking glam throughout the day.
  5. Extras: This might sound like randoms item to bring to festivals but it is a life saver for me. From being outside in the hot weather your lips can become very dehydrated which isn’t a good look for anybody.Sunglasses are also a must for the outdoor festival to top off any outfit.

I hope this short post helps you decide what items to bring along in your bag. As always if you have any post requests please send me them on Twitter.

Festival season is fast approaching, so I thought now would be a great time to showcase some of the top festival trends I have seen for 2018. If festivals are your thing… keep reading to find out my top festival hair and makeup looks for this summer.

Firstly, festival makeup is one of my favourite looks to do because I can get away with wearing so much glitter! Some of my top looks are shown below.

Smokey eyes and lower lash glitter: When it comes to smokey eyes for festival the more blown out the better. Don’t be afraid to use colour to go for a more dramatic and fun look.

Glitter Eyes: Glitter eyes are my festival go to option. Some of my favourite loose pigments is by Peaches Makeup. Loose pigments are a great way to achieve a subtle shimmer or a more opaque pay off.

In your Dreams chest piece: One Word- ideal. This is such an easy way to accessorise a festival outfit without making a huge effort. The in your dreams adhesive gem designs are eye catching and the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. These are available on Pretty Little Thing.

Braids: When it comes to hairstyles I feel like braids is always a easy option to achieve ‘the festival look’. Some of my favourite styles are below.

Instant Colour: What better way to make a statement and have fun then to play around with colour. Instant colour gel and powders are so versatile. Colourful braids using extensions are a more popular trend and definitely one to make you stand out in a crowd.

Festivals clothes are always a great to showcase your personality whether you want to go for an outfit that is completely out there and wild or a more chilled boho chic vibe.

Tassels and Fringe: Fringe jackets are the ultimate festival accessory. My favourite piece this summer is from River Island in this bright red colour.

Prints & Sequins: Festival-goers like to make a impact. It is the one time to go crazy from your day to day wardrobe. Clashing prints, vibrant colours and blinding sequins = festival attire.

Hats: Fedora hats have been a new trend to festival in recent years especially in hot climates such as the infamous Coachella festival.

I hope this short post gave you some inspiration for your next festival, the most important thing is to have FUN and showcase your personality.

Till next time,
