10 best festival beauty products

From a mascara that won’t budge to a shower-in-a-bottle, we've found clever cosmetics that will stand up to rain, sweat and mud over a weekend

Panda eyes, greasy hair and third degree sunburn is usually the look most of us end up rocking on the Sunday after a weekend of hard survival in the great festival outdoors.

But thanks to things like waterproof make-up, multipurpose balms and cleansing products that don’t require a muddy trip to the showers, that needn’t be the case. Here are the hero products we’ll be packing this year.

Verdict

If ever there was a range to keep skin super-clear , despite the copious booze consumption, tent humidity and abundant dirt, it’s Murad. Though not the cheapest face wipes on the market, they are by far the most effective. Other huge stars include the BareMinerals facial powder sunscreen, which eliminates any chance of your face looking like a polar oil slick. And for brilliant colour that lasts all day, opt for Cargo’s waterproof blusher in Ibiza, and Topshop’s two-tone summer collection shadows.
