07 August 2013 by

Sit tight, ladies- V Festival 2013 is almost here! Ahead of next weekend’s antics, we’ve lined up some pretty awesome, brand-spanking new festival beauty trends for you, courtesy of make-up maestros MAC. The makeup gurus will yet again be the official backstage make-up sponsor of the celeb-filled festival, and we just cannot wait to check out all the gorgeous festi-creations as they happen…

Lucky enough to be hitting the Virgin Media Louder Lounge next weekend? Well, us Grazia ladies can confirm you’re in for a right treat as the MAC Pro Team will be on hand to primp and preen your pretty faces to festi-perfection over the course of the weekend. Pre-empting 48 hours-worth of burgers, booze and boogying? Whilst not conducive to a flawless complexion, we understand these things come hand-in-hand with a big weekender, and who better than the pros at MAC to cover up with serious panache your every sin?

There’s a look to suit all you beauty junkies- whether you’re after Debbie’s vampy red lips, Rebecca’s glittery eyes or Pablo’s neon pink cheeks, we guarantee you’ll be the belle of the field… It’s time to form an orderly queue, ladies!

What’s more, the MAC artists will be geared up to provide make-up and grooming services to key talent performing over the weekend, including the gorgeous faces of Beyonce, Jessie Ware, Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding to name a few.

Getting excited? Yep, us too! Ahead of the festival, taking place next weekend, 17-18 August at Chelmsford’s Hyland Park, we’ve got some awesome festival-chic tips straight from the mouths of the MAC pros themselves, guaranteed to keep you looked great come rain, shine or wicked hangover…

Top Tips For Festival Beauty

“Keep a bright matte lipstick at hand to dramatically change your makeup from day to night. Something that will last throughout the festival fun is always a winner. Try MAC Ruby Woo lipstick in classic red, £15 for the perfect velvet pout that is unmissable and 100% kissable.” Cher Webb, MAC Senior Artist

“Opt for minimal amount of products on the skin; try to get all the coverage from a very long lasting corrector, like MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, £15.50 only where necessary. In terms of lips and eyes, those are your opportunity to play with bold colours and glitters. Make it fun and do not worry about perfection.” Pablo Rodriguez, MAC Senior Artist

“MAC False Lashes Waterproof Mascara, £18 - it might be pouring with rain, it might be blazing sunshine (it'll probably be both!) This mascara is sweat proof and waterproof.” Rebecca Butterworth, MAC Senior Artist

“Remember to apply a sunscreen each day to protect your skin, my favourite is MAC Prep + Prime SPF 50, £23 as it’s lightweight, easy to blend and also cleverly absorbs oil too.” Debbie Finnegan, M?A?C Senior Artist

The MAC pros will be working their magic on the likes of Ellie Goulding and Beyonce- we can't wait to see the results!
