Beauty: Right, so I think I've pictured everything! I'd advise on getting mini's of things, these were just the sizes I had. Lots of make up counters will give mini samples of your favourite product when you buy a full sized one, if not, magazines are often doing freebees as promotions so keep your eyes peeled as that's where I found loads of these Benefit minis! I will take my Benefit Powda Wowza as it's got a blusher, bronzer and highlighter in there so it saves space. If you're not big on make up, or have minimal space, then I'd advise on a tinted moisturiser, eyeliner and mascara. Keep it basic! I like a statement lip if the rest of my face is bare so I'll be packing MAC's Rebel. You can always hide your eyes under sunglasses anyway...
Hygiene: Hygiene wise I'd say baby wipes and face wipes are your best pal throughout all of this. I can't use baby wipes as the smell makes me sick (even the non fragranced ones!) but I use make up wipes like they're going out of fashion. If there's no showers about, the last thing you want is to smell horrible in a warm tent, and whatever you do, do not forget deodorant! It has happened, so don't let it be you! I always pack dry shampoo as it's my utter saving grace when my hair is flat and greasy (yum) and now that clever "dry backcombing" sprays exist, you'd barely need a hairbrush... although I would definitely advise that you take one! Always remember to take a razor too, the last thing you need on a hot sunny day is a hoodie on because of an armpit situation. Berrocca or other revitalising vitamin-y things are recommended too, if you've been drinking but want to be up and out early, one of these will ease your head! There's also the obvious like a toothbrush and toothpaste. Boots sell mini toothpastes for like 49p and it's all you'll need!
Not pictured, but still useful: suncream, (if the weather ever cheers up, at this rate we'll be knee deep in snow come June) grab a little bottle or even some sachets. A water bottle, it's useful to have one when it comes to teeth brushing and hand washing. HAND SANITIZER, I don't know how I forgot to picture this. Oh my god, take a litre of the stuff. Honestly, your actual holy grail item at any festival. I always recommend wearing dark nail polish too. It was a tip given to me by James' older sister, and it has faired me well! I'll probably wear Topshop's Cloak and Dagger which is a jet black. It means you can't see anything horrible under your nails, out of sight, out of mind.. right?
I hope at least one of you found this useful! I'm going to do a clothes and other things to pack post a little later on too, so give me a shout if you think of anything.
