At long last, festival season is upon us again. Whether you’re looking forward to Glastonbury or Secret Garden Party, or you’re travelling further afield to France or Croatia, you want to know that you’ve got a beauty kit that will keep you looking and feeling your best all day and night, so that you can concentrate on having fun. With that in mind, we’ve compiled our six favourite Max Factor products that no festival goer should be without…
For a beauty look that will go the distance, it’s all in the prep, so make Max Factor’s Facefinity All Day Primer your first step. The secret to this long-lasting formula is its micro correctors, which work to absorb sweat and sebum and extend the wear of foundation for an all-day flawless finish. “It helps prepare the skin, allowing foundation to sit effortlessly, helping all of us achieve natural looking skin,” adds Max Factor make-up artist Caroline Barnes.
Give your festival look a boost of colour with a bold lip look that lasts. Max Factor’s best-selling long-wear lipstick, Lipfinity delivers up to 24 hours of fresh-looking colour without drying or caking. A festival is the perfect excuse to go for a brighter colour than you might do at home, so why not try the raspberry pink tones of Cheerful? “You’ll find that as you apply colour it starts to dry but you don’t want to apply the top coat until it is completely dry, which can take up to 60 seconds,” advises Caroline.
Developed especially for those who favour a multitasker, Max Factor’s Face Finity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation combines your primer, foundation and concealer into one to deliver a long-lasting finish and diminish the need for touch-ups. What more could you ask for in the middle of a festival field?
There’s no guaranteeing the weather or where the day will take you at a festival, so turn to Max Factor’s Waterproof Mascara to make sure your lashes are always looking their best. A smudge and smear-free formula, it’s naturally water-repellent mineral matrix ensures lashes are fully water-resistant, while the iFX brush works to define and separate lashes for a clump-free finish.
No festivalgoer would be without their lip balm, but this year you can have all the benefits of your favourite lip balm with buildable colour courtesy of Max Factor’s Colour Intensifying Balms. Created with mango, shea and cocoa butters to leave lips feeling nourished and moisturised, the balm can be applied to provide a subtle sheen or built up for an extreme colour hit. The ideal beauty tool to transform your look from day-to-night, this is one to keep on you at all times.
Achieve a natural, healthy glow each day your at the festival with Max Factor’s Crème Puff Blush. A baked formula with finely milled, multi-tonal pigments, it can be gradually built up layer by layer to suit you. “The beauty of multi-tonal pigments in a blusher means it adds radiance without being too obvious on your skin, therefore giving you a naturally enhanced appearance,” explains Caroline.
