With Ireland biggest festival just around the corner I thought I would put together a Festival Essential Guide from makeup to beauty items and even some techy items that will sure to make your camping experience a good one. Even if you are not going to Electric Picnic next weekend you can always use this post as a guide for camping.
When it comes to beauty, you want to keep it simple now some people might not want to go without their entire makeup bag and that's completely fine but I suggest just bringing the bare minimum as its easier to get ready for the day and you are not leaving all your valuables in your tents when your out enjoying the day.
So wet wipes are an essential, makeup remover.....ew I know I am totally against it and I myself would probably just use micellar water but I know a lot of people love wet wipes for quickness. The wipes can also be used to give yourself a little wash and to keep everything fresh if you know what I mean. Then there is dry shampoo, for me anyway this would be a major essential, greasy hair equals cranky Lauren. Next you need to pack sunscreen, as I use different ones for face and body I would pack two, but that is totally optional. Then for makeup itself I think just a BB cream, some concealer, waterproof mascara and a sheer lipstick/ balm stick will have you good to go.
Now for the non glamorous beauty items I have included some Compeed plasters, if you are wearing wellies, blisters will happen 9 times out of 10. So be preprepared and bring some plasters and these ones from Compeed are the bomb for blisters. Then to make sure your toothbrush stays 100% germ free buy a brush holder/container. I picked this up in Primark/ Pennys for €1.50 for 2.
If your like me and your phone is your best friend then you want to make sure that you always have battery life so I recommend a Solar Powered battery charger. This one from Dizaul is really great as it literally takes only a few hours to fully charge then you can charge your phone without the need of electricity and since you are outside all day it makes sense to have an solar powered one. Next is a really handy product and it is a waterproof phone holder. Now I always make sure my phone has a screen protector on but we all know Ireland its dodgy weather and being prepared for wet conditions is a must. This little bag keeps your phone 100% dry and you can wear it around you neck, not particularly stylish but very practical. Lastly to get the party going all day and night long grab yourself a bluetooth speak, perfect to pair with anyone's phone. The sound of this one isn't super amazing but it does the job and its nice and small so it won't take up much room in the tent or in your backpack.
So there you have it my festival/ camping essential guide. Everything you need to have the perfect weekend. Let me know what products you would bring to a festival or camping.
Are any of you off to EP next weekend?
