Festival Chic for Coachella

Achieving festival chic can be difficult at the best of times, let alone if your festival of choice is in the middle of a desert. Celebrity favourite Coachella Festival in California has now become just as well known for its ultra-hip following as it is for its storming line-up. Famous faces including Paris Hilton, Cara Delvingne and Sienna Miller enjoyed the star studded festival last weekend, and with Coachella opening its gates again this weekend, we cant wait to see who turns up to enjoy another fun festival weekend!
Camping and partying in the LA heat is going to play havoc with your skin and hair unless you take extra-care. Follow our festival beauty tips for a regime that’s low maintenance and disguises the effects of late nights and lack of hair styling essentials. To combat pore-clogging desert dust without the hassle, choose thorough, nourishing cleansing wipes to easily cleanse your skin. This product is going to remove all traces of make-up and festival grime whilst conditioning the skin. For an effortlessly clear complexion and protection from California sun, try adding a blob of foundation to your SPF. Be prepared to pare down your make-up regime and opt instead for a colour-pop on the lips to brighten tired skin. Sleek Pout Paint is a long-lasting, satin lip pigment which comes in a spectrum of classic to wild shades and ensures a striking look from day to night. The best thing about hair trends for 2014 is that the slick, wet look is in and the festival staple braid just got a make-over. If you're working with your hair's natural oils then keep the parting neat and to the side, comb and smooth down level to the tip of your ears and then let the lengths fall loose and tousled. This style looks ace with an Embellished Braided Head Band worn around the forehead for that soft hippy vibe. No festival beauty kit is complete without dry shampoo to freshen and re-texturize lank locks. Try Sexy Hair Big Volumising Dry Shampoo for instant lift and UV protection that absorbs dirt and oil. Hair is then perfectly prepped for a classic crown-braid, given a casual twist this season with soft tendrils left loose to frame the face. Use large, 7cm Hair Grips to secure in place and even after a night’s sleep, the braid should stay in place with added bed-head appeal. If your enjoying a festival this summer, don't miss the range of festival hair essentials now available at Pauls Hair World!
