Purse-friendly festival beauty essentials you need to pack this summer

While slumming it is part of the fun festival experience, a few days couped up in a tent with no showers or electricity aren't the cornerstone of a winning look.

Festival style is a big deal and prepping your toiletries and make up can easily set you back hundreds of pounds, which is why packing smart is essential if you're on a budget.

Knowing what you need to survive without showers and extremely temperamental weather conditions if you're going somewhere in the UK (get ready for a heatwave or torrential downpours) is a must if you want to handle festival season like a pro.

Most major high street retailers and supermarkets now offer small saviours and multi-use products at incredible prices and we have listed 10 beauty and make up essentials that keep celebs like Beyonce, Millie Mackintosh and Kendall and Kylie Jenner looking fresh and fabulous during festival season.
