As festival season approaches, many of us are getting ready to embrace the music and fun that comes with these events.

Whether you’re a seasoned festival-goer or a first-timer, one thing is for sure: camping at an event like this can present some challenges when it comes to staying fresh and looking your best.

However, the right beauty products can help maintain your style throughout the event. Here are some must-have festival beauty essentials to keep you looking and feeling fabulous:

Dry Shampoo

A true lifesaver when showers are scarce, dry shampoo will help absorb excess oil and refresh your hair between washes.

Obviously, space will be limited when you’re spending the weekend in a tent, so opt for a travel-size product to save a little space. .

Face Wipes

Quick and convenient, face wipes are perfect for freshening up on-the-go. Choose wipes that are gentle on the skin and can remove the dirt, oil and makeup from the day.


Protect your skin from the sun’s rays with a high SPF suncream. Look for a sweat-resistant formula to keep you covered during long days spent outdoors.

Hydrating Mist

A hydrating facial mist can provide an instant pick-me-up -especially in the heat.

Choose one with soothing ingredients like aloe vera or rosewater to keep your skin feeling a little more refreshed.

Multipurpose Beauty Balm

A multipurpose beauty balm can work wonders for dry lips, cuticles, and any other areas in need of hydration.

Compact Mirror

A compact mirror is essential for quick touch-ups throughout the day. Choose a durable one with plastic packaging so it may have a better chance of withstanding the rigors of festival life.

Waterproof Makeup

After putting time and effort into your festival makeup look, you’re going to want it to last.

We recommend opting for waterproof mascara, foundation and eyeliner that can withstand sweat, heat, or even dancing in the rain.


Stay fresh with a travel-size deodorant that you can easily stash in your bag. Look for a long-lasting formula that will keep you feeling confident throughout the day.

Hair Accessories

Pack some hair ties, bobby pins and headbands to keep your hair out of your face and looking stylish.

Not only do they add a fun twist, but they’ll allow you to effortlessly switch up your look each day. Plus, they’ll help to hide three-day hair…

These events are all about embracing a carefree spirit, so with these festival beauty essentials in your camping kit, you can stay fresh and stylish all weekend long – without worry.
