#GottaTurnItUp Festival Beauty

Main titme From Coachella to Osheaga, EDC, and Tomorrowland, festival season is upon us!  We have a couple music festivals here in Manitoba, none of which I have been to, but EDC and Tomorrowland are definitely on my bucket list. Whether you’re a music enthusiast or not, you can still dress the part!  Crop tops, daisies, maxi skirts, neon, and lots of peace and love are super on trend for the season, making it easy to rock out without actually being there.

For those of you lucky enough to make it to a festival this year, there are some must-have items that should be on anyone’s travel list!  CoverGirl, Olay Fresh Effects and Herbal Essences have teamed up with MuchMusic on an exciting program called Turn It Up, which is a destination for all things beauty, fashion, music, and culture.  As a Beauty United blogger, a select few of us were challenged with how we would rock our hair and makeup for a music festival. Bike Bike 2 Products on bike Festival hair should be low-maintenance and boho chic.  I love rocking loose curls, which can be easily maintained with some dry shampoo, hairspray, and shine spray.  To spice up your hairstyle, pop in a headband or flower crown, which are super easy to DIY.

Although beauty products will most likely be kept to a minimum, don’t forget dry shampoo!  This one is a must have for any festival goer.  Since showers will probably be sparse, spray a little bit of Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo into your roots for instant touchable hair that absorbs excess oil and gives your lifeless locks plenty of lift and texture (plus it’s paraben-free!). Blanket 1 Face For makeup, keep it to a minimum because you will be dancing and sweating.  I love just laying on a BB cream with a colourful liner and lots of mascara (make sure it’s waterproof so it doesn’t smudge!).  BB Creams are great because they still give you some coverage, are light on the face (aka not cakey), and most contain an SPF which is a must if you are going to be outside all day (sunburns are not cute).  If you’re pale like me, add some bronzer to your cheeks to fake a tan (I love CoverGirl’s TruMagic The Sunkisser bronzing balm for a natural-looking sun-kissed glow).  For the lips, keep them moisturized with a hint of colour.  I love CoverGirl’s LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balms in any pink shade for kissable-looking lips that moisturize (hey, you’ll never know who you’ll meet!).  To take it all off, don’t forget some makeup-removing wipes. beauty checklist Now the fun part!
