Festival 2020 Beauty Edit
Festival beauty products to get you in the mood for Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary on the BBC, your Zoom gigs and virtual Pride events happening around the globe
There’s some brilliant festival and Pride beauty buys that you can sport: from rainbow hues for eyes, lips cheeks, and hair to sophisticated sparkles. Plus, products that not only get you in the mood but also support the LGBTQ+ community, too, with proceeds going to charities and initiatives that will help to create safe and inclusive environments for lesbian, gay, bisexual young people and adults around the world.
So break out the glitter, invest in the pretty colour palettes, and paint the mane whatever colour your heart desires – it’s time to have fun with make-up again. And, at least there will be no nasty queues for the Portaloos, and you get to sleep in the comfort of your own bed.
