Your festival outfits are ready, you've even practiced your poses in front of the camera. But how do you actually make sure your makeup lasts without having to lug everything for touch ups? Lucky for you we're pretty much experts at surviving a music festival, and we're here to offer handy tips.

1. Start with Skincare

Skincare will save you. Begin with a moisturizer. Opt for one that's gel-based or lightweight like Skin Inc's Hydrating Shield which also has SPF in it. You want your skin to be sufficiently hydrated to avoid overproducing oil. 

2. Prime Your Skin

Choose a primer that suited to your skin type to help foundation stay on longer, and also also have other skin benefits, like controlling oil or keeping the skin properly hydrated. When it comes to Malaysia's, or Singapore's weather, look for a formula that is waterproof to further combat sweat. We're fans of Smashbox's Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer.

3. Get the Right Foundation

This one depends on your personal preference, whether you'd like full coverage, or simply a skin tint type thing to soldier through the festival. Either way, make sure you look for a formula that is oil-free, transfer-resistant, and long-wearing. We love Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation for full coverage, and NARS All-Day Luminous Foundation mixed with sunscreen for a skin tint.

4. Choose Your Lip Colours with Care

Obviously throughout the day, you're going to be chugging back a lot of water, food and maybe even lollies to keep your energy up, so you have to make sure your lip colour has major staying power. Our stunning All Day Matte Halal Lipsticks apply smooth and creamy then set so you can party on for hours without having to stop for a touch-up break every few hours. Plus, it's Halal and transfer-proof. Win-win we say!

5.  Set Your Makeup!

A setting spray will lock and load all the layers of your makeup together. Not only will it mesh all the layers of powder and cream together for a more natural finish, it will also ensure that everything sticks together for the whole day.

Bonus points: Let your nails enjoy the party too!

Don't let your nails go naked. Go bold with alternating colours, or try to nail a nail art look! We've got ten colours for you to pick from, so the world is really your oyster, girl!
