(Corrine Day for VOGUE 2005)

When you think of festival beauty you think dry shampoo, plaits, face paint and wet wipes. Oh, yes lots of wet wipes. But, when it actually came down to it – I realised I would actually need a whole lot more than that

As just looking half-decent after a restless night with a toddler or endless late nights working means a whole host of anti-fatigue, flash balms and blusher tricks in the morning.

That I figured looking good when some of your basics – like you know, running water – may not be readily available daytime beauty was going to take some re-thinking. 

I’ve read that there’s pamper parlours, showers and the like at Camp Bestival – I’m not sure  I’ll actually want to queue, like the sharing aspect or even have the inclination to leave the tent if the weather turns yucky.


So, only products that were multi-tasking, did double duty or offered fast results need apply. Festival beauty has to be hard working – and more importantly they had be be worth the added weight. 

So, I have complied a few essentials – and I mean essentials – for looking Festival Fabulous from morning till midnight.
