Festival make-up: what to pack

Looking your best at a festival can be somewhat of a challenge - after all, mud + lack of showers doesn't exactly equal glamour. That's why, not for the first time, make-up is a style saviour. As well as the usual beauty essentials (face wipes, dry shampoo), a few well-chosen items in your make-up bag can ensure your festival photographs don't instantly have you heading for the 'de-tag' button.

If you're not blessed with your own personal make-up artist, you can still bring glamour to the fields by ensuring hese festival make-up must-packs are in your travel cosmetics case. With festival season fast approaching, check out our selection of festival beauty must-haves...
