The Festival Rescue Kit
I picked up this make up bag in H&M while I was in the queue waiting to pay, is it me or does that always happen? tell me I'm not the only one who gets drawn in to unnecessary purchases at the checkout? Nevertheless I thought it would be the perfect prop for a 4 Week Blog Series - The ... Rescue Kit. With Glastonbury going down this weekend, what better way to kick things off than with the festival edition.
I'm not a make up wipe kinda girl - I just can't do it! I feel like I have to physically wash away the day, BUT in some situations this isn't always possible. I really like the Yes to Cucumber facial wipes, I usually travel with these because they are great for removing make up and refreshing the skin. I have quite sensitive skin and facial wipes usually sting, these are fab because they are hypoallergenic - Calming, cooling and great for on the go!
This is a reason why I love Birchbox so much - The miniature, sample size products are ideal for testing new things but even better for travelling or carrying around when space is an issue. This teeny Embryolisse moisturiser is hydrating and suited for all skin types.
Everyone needs a facial sprtiz in their life and this one by Skyn is the ideal size and the packaging is perfect. An essential for keeping your skin hydrated throughout the day (and night!).
Let's face it's all about minimal fuss make up and more about having a good time! This BB Cream from The Body Shop is amazing! It transforms from a white cream and adapts to your skin tone. It smooths out the skin so nicely giving you even coverage without feeling too heavy on the skin.
A bronzer and a brush? It's a no brainer! I love the colour of this bronzer, I'd say it's pretty universal and can be built up so nicely without looking muddy. It has a soft shimmer which catches the light so nicely. Warm up the skin and get glowing!
Who's got time for anything more than a bit of liner and mascara? The All Nighter liner from Urban Decay is the ultimate, long lasting eyeliner. It's a soft, creamy texture in a retractable pencil - It can be used to simply on the water line or more boldly to create that feline flick.
We like lots of lashes and Maybelline Big Eyes is another drugstore mascara I'm loving right now. It has a nice chunky brush for the top lashes and a smaller, nifty brush to catch those little lower lashes. Using this instantly opens out my eyes add a little liner ET VOILA!
I couldn't cope without a bit of colour so the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in is the easiest option, the texture of these are dreamy - hydrating and comforting on the lips, and incredibly pigmented too! 'On Fire' such a vibrant, show stopping red!
We all need lip balm and Baby Lips was my pick - hydrating on the lips, easy to apply and a hint of colour! What more could a girl need?
I don't real do dry shampoo, but one I occasionally reach for is the Philip Kingsley one! It doesn't have that white residue nor does it feel heavy in the hair. It adds instant volume and leaves your hair looking fresh - dry shampoo is defintely a festival essential!
