I write for Festival Style on a weekly basis, giving tips on what to take with you so you look fabulous at all times! Here’s this week’s article all about Lovebox…
Lovebox hits the capital again this weekend, so let’s hope the weather holds out for us, it’s the only week for months that’s been rubbish! In homage to London Town this edition of Festival Style beauty is all about the fabulous city – and I don’t mean channeling Peggy Mitchell.
If you think of London’s iconic brands, you will most likely imagine the mothership that is Topshop on Oxford Street. This glamorous store is not for the faint hearted, but if you can manage to hold your breath and run to the accessories department there are some truly beautiful and magnificent hair bands which are perfect for achieving festival chic-ness. My faves are the corsage headbands, which starting at £6.00 are a bargain – why not grab a different one for every day?! With one of these bad boys there’s no need to bother with your hair – just wash and go, if you’ve got the luxury of going home after each day, and spray in a little of Label M’s Sea Salt spray for a bit of sexy texture.
If you’re in ‘Landan’ this weekend then make sure you’re living the ‘London Look’ courtesy of Rimmel and their Colour Rush Mono eyeshadows. These vibrant palettes even come with a crown-stamped second colour that perfectly blends and complements the first. I love Envy and After Dark – apply the lighter colour to your upper lids, topping off with the darker colour around the edges of your eyes for a smokey effect. Why not top the look off with a slick of Royal Gloss in Gourmet for a super simple, yet effortlessly chic look. Kate Moss would be proud.
The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden has also become an iconic part of London’s beauty scene. Their complementary products have been available on the high street for some time now, but they’ve just launched a travel range which is perfect for popping in your festival beauty bag. I think everyone needs a mini tube of Night Concentrate – it works overnight to help protect, strengthen and promote the skin’s natural renewal. You’ll wake up with skin feeling firmer, looking younger and bouncing ready for the music-filled day ahead. Grab one of these now before I snap them all up!
PS – If you’re feeling exceptionally daring why not get yourself some of these fab Union Jack eyelashes from Crown Brush – guaranteed to make an impact!
