Millie Mackintosh is a festival veteran, so it’s no surprise that this year she’s been hitting up the celeb-packed Coachella and looking totally gorgeous in the process.
It’s tricky to get festival beauty right, but the former Made In Chelsea star has totally nailed it, working fresh, dewy skin and bright, sparkly peepers in every Instagram snap.
Which is why we’re over the moon that Millie has let us in on our festival beauty essentials kit to keep us all looking pretty and polished once we start hitting the fields. Yay!
First up, skin protection. It’s scorching hot in LA at the moment, so Millie’s been protecting her face with Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily Moisturiser, a lightweight formula that offers fab UV protection. Nifty.
Next up, for a gorgeous bronzed glow, it’s got to be St Tropez Skim Illuminator. Apply to cheekbones, décolletage, arms and shins for a luminous summer sheen – no spray tan necessary!
For a peachy pout that’s oh-so-easy toapply, Millie turns to her Pixi Lip Blush, a long lasting matte lip stain that creates a subtle, healthy stay-on hue. Love.
Festival hair can be a beauty nightmare, which is why Mills uses her Bumble And Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish spray to give her locks some extra oomph in between washes. Spray liberally at roots then ruffle with tour hands for instant pumped-up volume.
Last up, for skin that doesn’t look like it’s spent hours baking in the sun, look to Eau Cellulaire’s Cellular Water Spray. Carry in your festival bag and give your face a spritz to restore freshness, radiance and vitality.
Thanks for the insight, Mills!
