Festival season is here and it’s just as important to make sure you’ve packed your glitter kit along with your wellies.  Warpaint takes a look at what’s on offer this year to get your sparkle on.

Shine on responsibly with Barry M’s Pick n Glitz (£4.99) in biodegradable shades.  This eco-friendly glitter is sustainably sourced from plant cellulose that biodegrades naturally in fresh water, so there’s no excuse not to sparkle.

Available in four colours – shook (mermaid blue), bae (sunset hues), as-if (fuschia) and goals (silver).

Taking beauty bohemia to the next level, Barry M’s Face Jewels (£4.99) come in three new designs.  These give the ultimate festy-glam vibes.  These self-adhesive gems will take your outfit to maximum “ooh” factor with minimal fuss.

Vegan friendly, they come in Cosmic Cowgirl (pictured) Sun Goddess,  and Rainbow Unicorn.   They should be applied before make up.  You can add a bit more va-va-voom by using the Pick n Glitz glitter around the jewels.

Both glitter and jewels are available from barrym, Superdrug and selected Boots stores.

You can unleash your creativity with OPV Beauty’s Rainbow Splash Palette (£29) and Metal and Glitter Liquid Liners (£10 each).  This will ensure a stand out festival look!

Formulated with all skin tones in mind, the palette is richly pigmented, smooth and easy to blend.  From intense mattes to metallic foils, the palette can create limitless bold and bright looks.  Containing 20 shades from the deepest blue to the most vibrant magenta.

Long-lasting and smudge-free, Metal & Liquid Glitter is perfect for adding a subtle shimmer to your look.  The precise applicator sweeps seamlessly over the lash line for a smooth, professional finish.  From classic gold to emerald green, this water-based glitter eyeliner is available in 20 stunning shades.

All available from beautybay and OPVbeauty

W7 Cosmetics have a whole range of festival goodies for you.  This includes Festival Fever Face Gems (£5.95) in 14 different designs which can be used on the body as well as the face (style 14 pictured).   These were seen on brand ambassador Olivia Buckland at Coachella earlier this year.

Want your glitter to sparkle AND stay? Try W7‘s Up All Night Glitter & Sparkle Stay Kit (£7.95).  Say goodbye to the days of glitter application being fiddly and complicated.  The kit contains 3 different glitter pigments with their very own glitter and shimmer primer.  Use alone or to bling up the Face Gems even further.

All available from w7cosmetics.

And you mustn’t forget the hair!  IGK will get your hair and body festival ready with House Party (£15) a thick, chunky glitter stick for hair & body that gives iridescent, dimensional glitter.  It’s buildable from medium to full coverage.

Dry shampoo is festival must have.  Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo (£18) is the next best thing to actually washing your hair.  Powered by triple-action cleansing technology, it cleans beyond an ordinary dry shampoo.  Is absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odour leaving your hair looking, feeling and smelling clean.  It includes a time-release fragrance that delivers a light, clean scent throughout the day, leaving you smelling clean and fresh.

It’s not just about the make-up, remember to use a sunscreen when you’re busy having fun in the sun (or rain!).    Stay protected with the handy travel size Soleil Toujours Organic Sheer Sunscreen Mist (£19) in SPF30 or SPF50.   This antioxidant rich mist nourishes and hydrates and the convenient fine mist sprayer makes it perfect for on the go.  Lightweight, non-greasy and fast- drying, it remains water resistant for 80 minutes.   Formulated with key ingredients that offer the perfect combination of effective sun care and exquisite skincare it will boost SPF, reduce UV-induced skin damage, prevent loss of firmness, and increase skin smoothness.
