Pixie Lott at Virgin V Festival

V Festival: Pixie Lott’s Festival Tips

Virgin Media V Festival is going to be awesome this year! The line up is full of all our fave music stars, from Kasabian to Ellie Goulding to Jess Glynne! And, of course, we’re all dying to see if Taylor Swift will show up to support her man Calvin Harris who is headlining this year. If you haven’t got your tickets GET. THEM. NOW! A Virgin Media V Festival regular is, of course, the gorgeous Pixie Lott, who we caught up with to find out what she’s wearing, what she’s packing and her sneaky wine trick…


Bewitching Eyes

“Focus on your eyes for festivals. Lips wear off. I’ve drawn on little hearts, stuck on diamantes and had sunflowers drawn on my face! If you want to just go for a smoky eye use a cotton bud, it makes it smoky… but not too harsh. Get the eyeshadow on the cotton bud and draw it underneath your eyes, bring it out to a side. Then get a blender brush with the same shadow and take it across the eyelid.”

Flower Power

“It’s a festival so go crazy! I love having flowers in my hair, or tying bandannas around it. A look me and Holly [Rudge, Pixie’s hairstylist from Taylor Taylor London] do is little plaitits with bows sewn in the ends. Using hair bands looks bulkier so Holly found a way of sewing it with a needle and thread and we attach flowers to the end.”


Must Haves

“Batiste dry shampoo is definitely one, as are wet wipes as they come in handy for so much stuff! If the sun comes out I like Lancaster Sun Beauty Velvet Touch Cream in SPF 30 and NuBo Instant Lip Perfection SPF 15 as it’s so compact.”

Crazy Eyes

“You always need shades for the sun for when your eyes get hazy from a late night or no sleep weekend! I have some crazy fun pineapple ones and some chic Fendi ones.”

Keep Everything Together

“A chic rucksacks is always good to put all your essentials in, andyou won’t lose it when it’s on your back. I have a new pastel pink leather one from Gucci.”

Wine Is The Winner

“As glass isn’t allowed into festivals, boxed wine with plastic glasses is my tipple!”

Virgin Media V Festival Is From 22 – 23 August at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire
