Festival Essentials by Georgia

Festival season is upon us and so is the search for practical, compact & long lasting make up to take along with us.

As I get myself prepared for some fun in the sun, I have put together some of my top products that I am certain will see me through the dancing, singing and sleepless nights.


These include:

Hydra Veil

This small pot of instant hydration provides the optimal base for make-up or can be worn alone for smooth skin with a radiant finish. The gel formula is light, refreshing, fast absorbing and my holy grail product after a night on the vino!

Fundamental Palette

It’s all in the name- this compact quad of contrasting textures will have you set for lots of festival fun; from a Cream Pigment to glistening Liquid Metal, coupled with a vibrant Yellow and Violet Powder Eye Shadow. The mint green Cream Pigment will work wonders to cancel out dark under-eye circles and redness for a quick fix; and more amazingly, all of these high pigmented colours can be applied with fingers in the view of the generous mirror inside.

 Powder Blusher Duo in Beg & Bronzerella

Similarly, this travel-friendly duo of two beautiful matt Powder Blusher shades, Beg (Dusky Rose) and Bronzerella (Copper Bronze) comes complete with a mirror to shade, brighten, enhance and contour this party season.

Lipstick in Obey

This is one of my favourite Illamasqua lipsticks; it is a gorgeous bright peachy pink with matt finish. It is super long-lasting and a perfect medium between a neutral and a bright pink making it versatile for any outfit, any make up look & any time of the day!

UV Nail Varnish

Last but certainly not least, be sure to turn heads with glowing UV nails- these come in four shades that look gorgeous in natural light too!


Until next time,
