There are certain staple items that one must have in one's festival arsenal - they are, of course, weather dependent, but some even transcend the perpetual threat of drizzle.
Shorts: If the weather’s bad, stick them on over leggings or tights, or team with a pair of over-the knee-socks and yer trusty wellies.
Windcheater: It doesn’t matter if it’s not raining - you can always sit on it, and it’ll keep you warm when it gets chilly around 1am.
Rimmed hat: Be it a baseball cap or a sun hat, you’ll find no end of uses for that rim come rain, shine, or numpty avoidance.
Pleather bag (water resistant/easily wipeable) filled with the following essential items - torch, baby wipes, and hand sanitiser.
Kimono, preferably fringed: It’s not a necessity, we just like them...
The following item, however, is a must have. It's Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. As summer is upon us, skin can be left looking dry and dull from the winter weather effects. We all know the beauty benefits of a seamless foundation, but did you know you could give your whole body the same treatment in an instant too? Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is specially formulated not just for your legs but can be used all over the body, and it's designed to act like your favourite foundation - smoothing out freckles, veins, and any other niggling imperfections.
If you’re still haunted by the image of a friend’s fake tan streaming off her legs thanks to a particularly torrential downpour during day 2 of a festival last year, Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs is seamless, water and transfer-resistant coverage that lasts. There is no need to worry about streaks as this formula is "mistake free" and can be showered off with no mess or no lingering colour.
Sally Hansen now offers tanning fans two different Airbrush Legs offerings - the cult favourite Airbrush Legs Spray and the recently introduced Lotion. Containing Palmaria Extract, Airbrush Legs is formulated with a rich conditioning treatment for dehydrated skin, which stimulates microcirculation to improve the overall appearance of skin for that perfect finish.
Available in the following four shades - Light, Medium, Tan, and Deep - The Airbrush Legs is €13.95m, while the Lotion is €16.95. Both are available in shops and selected pharmacies nationwide.
