Festival essentials

Festival make-up essentials to be ready this year
Festival season is nearly upon us and at Boots we have all you need to make a weekend of booming basslines and dancing until 4am one to remember (or try to!). You'll stand out from the crowd head to toe in glitter and bold colours, while looking after your health so you can leave with only happy memories and muddy clothes.

To help you look your best, we have a huge range of festival makeup, hair dyes and jewels to choose from. This is the time to embrace vibrant pigments, experiment with bold looks and reinvent the beauty rules. Palettes offer a variety of colours while taking up minimal space, why not try the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Eyeshadow palette or a glitter pot to sparkle all night long? Want to add some party vibes to your hair too? Grab a temporary hair dye from the L'Oreal Colorista range to add streaks of pinks, purples, greens – or even go for a full head of rainbow! If you’re not quite sure what look to rock, watch our festival makeup look tutorials for inspiration.

Of course, it's important to keep your health in check and not just your eyeliner. Remember to look after your skin with easy to use make-up remover wipes and an SPF, we love the Soltan range. You’ll also thank your inner adult for packing a first aid kit with all the festival must-haves like painkillers, blister plasters, and hayfever relief, and stay prepared with some Durex condoms. Having fun and staying safe at any festival is made easy with Boots.
