CGD’S ULTIMATE SUMMER FESTIVAL GUIDE
3 Ultimate Beauty Tips
#1 Beauty essentials: always carry sunscreen, lip balm and water – this is essential!
#2 Keep your make up simple and to a minimum. You’ll probably just sweat it off anyway and don’t want to end up looking like a panda
#3 At the end of the day, make sure you fully remove any makeup & dirt. Bring face wipes or use face wash & lukewarm water.
4 Ultimate Fashion Tips
Wear a hat: To prevent your scalp from burning and sun stroke, get yourself a fashionable hat and don’t take it off until the sun goes down.
Wear comfortable shoes or sandals: The ground will get dirty, and you’ll want to have a bit of division between you and it. While boots can be too warm for festival weather, a thick sole shoe or sandal should do the trick. Tip: ASOS has some great festival proof sandals!
Buy affordable sunglasses: Don’t bring your most expensive sunglasses, you might lose control of your sunnies and we don’t want that!
Wear the bikini you’ve always wanted to wear: You have all summer to be body conscious. What better time to flaunt it then when you physically can’t bear to wear anything else.
4 Practical SURVIVAL TIPS
#1 Always arrange a meeting point in case you get separated from your friends.
#2 Take an empty plastic bag — it can have many uses! You can use it to sit on, wear it as a poncho if it rains.
#3 Drink plenty of water! If you get dehydrated you’ll just pass out and ruin it for everyone! Most festivals provide free water stations so make the most of it.
#4 Take a mini bottle of hand sanitizer or a travel pack of baby wipes. Sounds lame but you’ll thank us later.
