Get Festival Ready♥*

Summertime just shouts festivals. Some have already happened whilst there are still some to take place. Although I'm not going to any, I thought it'd be fun to use this month's Natural Collection* beauty box to get festival ready! Natural Collection are a budget brand where all their products are £1.99 each, therefore are extremely affordable.

For the "makeup necessities", you have got to use a concealer to cover up those tired under eye circles and mascara to open up your eyes. The Cover Up Stick* has pleasantly surprised me. New holy grail concealer I think?! Mine got broken in transit, but that's not stopping me from using it! I usually associate stick concealers being dry, but this surely isn't. I was shocked at how creamy and blendable it is! It covers up those dark circles fanatically and I adore it.


As far as mascara is concerned, the Water Guard Mascara* is superb. I wasn't sure if it would be a lengthening or voluminous mascara, so I tried it nevertheless. It turns out that it's a lengthening mascara, one that actually separates my lashes AND makes them look longer at the same time. It doesn't crumble or flake off, which is ideal for festivals.

You've got to incorporate colour into your festival look somehow. Whether that's nails, lips, eyes or whatever you fancy. Some people even use UV paint on their face, which tend to be bright, neon colours. I have two colour options - lips and/or nails. Both are colourful, not too intense and striking, yet are pretty and look beautiful on.

 For lips, the Tinted Lip Balm in Caribbean Crush* gives the perfect pop of colour. Although classed as a lip balm, I'd say it's more of a lipgloss. It's a pretty pink shade which isn't too "in your face" yet is effective. I was afraid in case it was sticky and non-festival appropriate, but it's not overly sticky unlike some other "cheap" lipglosses. Due to the colour, it can go with any look, and just gives that subtle pop of colour.

A second alternative for colour is the Nail Colour in Hibiscus*. I feel that the lipgloss looks like a very similar colour in the tube when compared to the nail polish. I really like the colour of the nail polish, and I also like the finish of it. It is slightly watery, but after two or three coats, it is a strong colour and is on the opaque side. When on your nails, it is quite a vibrant colour and definitely makes a statement. 

For a festival, I don't think that you would need to wear too much makeup as at the end of the day after jumping around, your makeup will sweat off and be patchy. That's why I highly recommend all the above products because they would create a minimal makeup look yet is effortless to create. Not to mention the products altogether only cost a whopping £7.96.

Are you going to any festivals this year? What makeup shall you be taking with you?
