Festival Beauty Essentials

Seasoned festival-goer Jen - Cult Beauty's brilliant Marketing Comms Manager - is going to glasto (and seems pretty pleased about it), so I begged her to share her beauty must-haves - the products she can't survive festival-season without, and here's what made the (ruthless) cut (she needs all the spare space for kaftans and headbands... obvs).

skyn ICELANDI'm normally the first to denounce face wipes as utterly catastrophic for your skin, but skyn ICELAND's {Glacial Cleansing Cloths} are different. They lather into a foam with no water required, so you can gently loosen and wipe away make up without aggressively scrubbing at your face. Ideal when there's not a sink in sight.

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary MistShort of being able to splash your face with water, Omorovicza's {Queen of Hungary Mist} is the most refreshing thing you can do to your skin at a festival. After you've taken your make up off and when you first wake up, it's a God-send. I make my fellow festival-goers form an orderly queue for their QoH fix.

MV Organic Skincare Rose Soothing & Protective Moisturiser 15mlI'm taking the 15ml MV Organic Skincare {Rose Soothing & Protective Moisturiser} because I just can't live without it. The best moisturiser in the whole world... according to my face.

SkinOwl Eye + TreatmentTired eyes and festivals go hand in hand - little sleep and more-than-the-usual intake of alcohol can wreak havoc on dark circles and puffy bags. SkinOwl's {Eye +} is an all-natural treatment which works instantly - you can feel the area under your eyes tighten and become rejuvenated - like magic.

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand WashAesop's {Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash} is a non-drying, divine-smelling hand sanitiser. Because, you know, it's a festival.

Living Proof Instant Texture MistTent hair be-gone! A few spritzes of Living Proof's {Instant Texture Mist} onto dry hair, followed by some tactical scrunching, will transform a fuzzy mess into effortless cool-girl waves (have-at-you Alexa!).

Unless it's torrential rain (please please NO), a good level of SPF is an absolute must. Zelens {Daily Defence Sunscreen SPF30} isn't chalky or sticky and sits beautifully under make up.

Jouer Luminizing Moisture TintLow effort/high reward make up is a dream come true for festivals. I love the instantly glowy, dewy effect of Jouer's {Luminizing Moisture Tint} - it covers all manner of s(k)ins without making you look too 'made up'.

Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Liquid LIpstickStila's {Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick} in 'Carina' is my new obsession. These lip colours glide on like a gloss but dry like a matte lipstick and they literally stay on all day. Apply once and you're good to go.
