Summer festival essentials

Are you heading out to some festivals this summer? Make sure to pack all the essentials before you go.

Glastonbury may have wrapped up, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of festival season, not by a long-shot. Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival and Tomorrowland are just a few of the music extravaganzas happening within the UK and all around the world.

Roll up your sleeves and tank tops, the partying has just begun and we’ve compiled a list of summer festival essentials to help you get through it all.

BB cream

Heavy foundation in hot weather can be a nightmare. The heat causes increased sweating, and a thick base of makeup can clog your pores, causing an oily looking complexion.

A perfect alternative is BB Cream. Its light formula offers translucent, natural coverage without being too heavy on the skin. We recommend this best-selling cream from Bobbie Brown. It comes in a diverse range of skin tones as well as offering SPF protection. We’re sure you’ll find your perfect match.

Daily contact lenses

Daily contacts allow for minimal care and do not require regular cleaning, disinfecting and storing. They’re the perfect option for heavy festival goers who get up at dawn, and party till late at night. Just pop them in when you get up, and slip them out at the end of the day.

Always remember to practice good hygiene when inserting and removing your contact lenses. You can read our guide on how to fit your lenses here.

We recommend comfi dailies which offer great value for money without compromising on quality.

Body glitter

All that glitters is not gold. Sometimes it’s pink, silver, blue, purple and makes you look like a mermaid! A cult favorite among festival darlings is The Gypsy Shrine. The UK-based company recently teamed up with popular beauty blogger Sophie Hannah Richards to create a custom line of body glitters and removable gems. The company regularly runs pop-ups at festivals around the UK and Europe including the mightiest of them all, Glastonbury.

Eye drops

Wearing lenses for an extended period of time can sometimes lead to dry eyes. Make sure to carry some drops to limit discomfort during lengthy wear. We recommend Blink Contacts Vials. Preservative-free, these innovative eye drops work to reintroduce moisture to your lenses and eyes, by mimicking the actions of your eyes’ natural tears, and provide instant relief.

Bold lips

The bright neon lipstick that’s been sitting at the bottom of your makeup bag, now is your time to use it! Festival season is all about being bold, loud and proud, so don’t shy away from colors that are out-of-the-ordinary and that you probably wouldn’t dare to wear in the office.

True Colour Lipstick by Sleek Cosmetics comes in 20 highly pigmented matte and sheen shades. Enriched with Vitamin E, it offers both hydration and intense colour.

Travel solution

If you prefer to wear lenses that are designed for longer usage, you'll need to carry some contact lens solution. An all-in-one product is best as you won’t have to invest in, or carry multiple products in your luggage.

comfi All-in-One superior solution includes the natural lubricant hyaluronate (HA) - only found in comfi and Biotrue contact lens solutions.

The bottle is conveniently sized and will fit easily into you your cosmetics case. Like all liquids, make sure your solution is carried in a clear bag if you’re carrying it in your hand luggage.

Look stylish and protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays with a pair of glamourous sunnies. We offer an incredible range of designer sunglasses for both men and women at price points that will suit everyone. Our Price Match Guarantee ensures you won’t find any of our sunglasses cheaper anywhere else. All of our lenses offer maximum UV protection.

Round lenses are a popular choice at festivals and we love these round transparent pair from Chloe Jackson..

Coloured contacts

Coloured contacts are a quick and creative way to change your look instantly. Choose from the bright and vibrant colours of FreshLook Colorblends (available in 12 colours), or 1 Day Acuvue Define - Natural Shimmer for increased definition of your natural eye colour.
