Festival face and body gems get the latest look

This summer is playing host to a variety of festival trends, but taking centre stage, is a face and body gems look which brings a whole new meaning to ‘getting stoned in a field’ ….

festival face and body gems
Gems are everywhere this season and we are obsessed with the face & body designs we have been witnessing so far! Fancy foreheads, dazzling décolletage, blingy bottoms and disco-tits galore! Paired with a healthy dose of glitter, body jewels are sweeping the festival fields and we are on hand to share our top tips on how to achieve the look.

For the beginners amongst you, fear not, several companies including our friends over at The Festival Faces Group, have developed self-adhesive, all in one designs which you can just peel-and-stick and you’re good to go. However, if you feel adventurous, individual stones and a dab of body or eyelash glue can be used to create your own creations which are only limited by your own creativity.festival face and body gems

Always start with clean and dry skin, apply your gems to your face or body with a dab of glue (please ensure this is suitable for use on the skin – eyelash glue is a great option) and allow to dry. Once your gems are in place you can then add fine and chunky glitter around them for the ultimate festival look. Take a flat brush and hair gel, apply to the skin surrounding your gems and sprinkle glitter with reckless abandon until your dazzling look is complete…but remember, more is most definitely more when it comes to glitter!

If you would like to bring this dazzling look to your upcoming event, contact one of our fabulous team at info@vanityvan.co.uk for more information.

Our top five tips for minimal make up

In recent years, we have noticed the heavy-handed approach to make up application has been a consistent trend. We have been packing layer upon layer of makeup onto our faces, to the point where we wouldn’t have looked out of place on a night out with Ru Paul Charles…

After years of celebrminimal makeupity inspired trends of contouring, highlighting, strobing, baking and applying make up with all manner of random objects… cue summer 2017 and the welcome appearance of the minimal makeup trend.
We can almost hear our pores breathing a sigh of relief.
It’s time to strip it all back ladies and embrace a fresh-faced feel for summer.

Whether you are going au naturel to be on trend, detox your skin, or simply out of sheer laziness(let’s face it girls, we all have those days) we have our top 5 tips to create a fresh minimal face this season.

Tip 1 – Skin: Your skin is your canvas. To give you the absolute best result possible, ensure you have a fantastic, clean, fresh and hydrated base to start with by exfoliating, cleansing and moisturising regularly. Drink plenty of water and always ALWAYS remember to take off your makeup before heading to bed.

Tip 2 – Base: Embrace the ‘less is more’ approach. Ditch the foundation and consider a BB or CC cream. If going bare-faced is just too far out of your comfort zone try a mineral makeup powder. Concealer is your best friend for any problem areas, but keep it light and avoid caking it on….and don’t forget to blend!

Tip 3 – Eyes: We are going for natural, so put down the eyeliner and step away from the falsies! Keep the eye-shadow light and natural, and finish up with a slick of mascara – no spider lashes ladies… Brows should be tamed but not too overdone, try a clear or tinted brow gel to wrangle stray hairs and keep them looking groomed yet natural.

Tip 4 – Lips: A tinted lip balm should be a staple addition to any self-respecting woman’s handbag, and Is a perfect way to add a natural flush of colour whilst keeping your pout plumped and hydrated.

Tip 5 – Cheeks: Aim for a natural ‘flush’. A peach cream-blush will give you an understated pop of colour yet keep your skin dewy. A touch of highlighter to add to your radiance, and a dusting of bronzer on the high points of your face will give you a sun-kissed glow, and you’re good to go!

We’ve had a memorable first year working with The Pop-Up hotel team creating a Pop-Up spa experience in their boutique camping area situated just outside of Glastonbury. The Pop-Up Hotel and Motel are perfect for the more discerning festival goer who want to take Millie Mackintosh Hugo Taylor Glastonbury 2017‘Glamping’ to a whole new level. We even spotted and chatted to Made in Chelsea stars Millie Macintosh and Hugo Taylor who were in residence loving the lavish Glastonbury festival experience.

One of our most luxury set ups yet, our fabulous spa area was equipped with hair stations, make-up and glitter zones, barbering chairs, nail booths and three therapy treatment rooms. In true spa style we had an exclusive outdoor pool and hot tub particularly ideal for the beginning of the festival when temperatures soared to a melting 34 degrees! The customers thought it was a wonderful addition, lying in the scorching sun with an ice cold Peroni dipping their feet.

Glitter Beards Glasonbury

As always, its all about glitter at Glastonbury! Back in 2015 we sawa shift in this trend moving from the more delicate face art to bucket loads of glitter – the more the merrier.  Not only did we offer fabulous facial decorations, but we also looked after a few brave gentlemen who rocked the glitter beard look. We made sure to incorporate glitter into many of our styles and treatments  we were loving the glittery space bun, a magical addition to any festival look.

Due to the haphazarGlastonbury pop up salon plaitsd weather we’ve also been flat out on up do’s and precision plaits. Braids are perfect for greasy festival hair – the dirtier the better ! And they are super durable making them the ideal style trend to survive the downpours and flying beer cups. The most popular styles were a Dutch braid into a fish tail, Mohawk plaits and a faux hawk up do created using buns.

As important as it is to beon trend, you cannot forget about relaxing and unwinding over what is a long weekend. Many people found the luxury Complete Revival massage which is an hour and a half perfect to ease hangovers and the aches and pains of festival life. Our full body rub downs and facials were offered alongside the more holistic Reiki and reflexology going down a treat with weary festival heros.

We loved the customers at this event and cannot wait to beautify them all again next year !Glasto glitter face art

Summer Festival Looks – Glitter

Summer Festival Trends Glitter Hair BraidsSecond in our series of this seasons festival looks. Quite possibly one of our favourite subjects EVER we just LOVE LOVE LOVE festival glitter ! And this season we are talking EVERYWHERE!

Festival glitter has gone into overdrive this season and as well as the festival activations at Glastonbury and V festival this summer we are also getting booked left right and centre for corporate events who want these bold looks to adorn their guests. Last year saw glitter partings and dazzling glitter eyes being HUGE, but this year’s take on the trend offers up a heavier-handed approach, and who are we to argue…

 

This seasons festival glitter trend – more is most def more:

Now, while we accept that a head-to-toe coating in festival glitter is a bold look for even the most outgoing of ladies (or gents) there are many ways to adopt the statement glistening look on a more wearable scale. We are in love with the many ideas to jazz up hair dos, to emblazon bottoms, upper legs, faces, necks, and even chests…although some are left to the brave – glitter boobs are an incredible statement but certainly take a bit of front (see what I did there…). Or is this taking it a bit too far – dare we mention glitter arm pits! …we might give that one a miss….

Summer Festival Trends Glitter BootySummer Festival Trends Glitter Booty

DIY festival glitter looks:

Our resident DIY fairy is on hand to offer up some application advice:
For glitter hair, face or body looks all you need is fine and chunky glitter; Vaseline or hair gel and a flat foundation brush or similar. Apply with reckless abandon a layer of fine glitter, add gel or Vaseline and a layer of chunky glitter and if in doubt…add more. Set with hair spray and boom you are ready to hit the fields.festival glitter

You can book multiple appointments per person on the same or different days BUT for different people you must book separately as we need all of your contact details and booking – so please forward this email onto your friends so they can book and pay for their own appointments individually.

 

Hair appointment times

 

You book the hair appointment for the time of the styling slot – don’t forget you will need to arrive 20-25 mins early to book in for your 15 min washing slot if you are using our Do It Yourself washing facilities before your DIY styling slot or your styling with a hairdresser slot.

 

Booking more than one treatment or for multiple people

 

If you want to book more than one type of treatment one after another on a particular day simply select all those you want then book the start time of those treatments.

 

If you want to book multiple slots for the same treatment on different days click on the recurring appointments option at the end and it will allow you to select extra days.

 

Salon site

 

Our salon will be based in the John Peel area towards the end of the row of shops by the entrance to Silver Hayes and the wall of flag installation. We will send out formal confirmation of this and any landmarks visible to help you find us once we are on site and set up on Mon/Tues.

 

Arrival times

 

Please arrive for ALL appointments 5 minutes early to book in and to allow for queues as the salon gets very busy.

 

For ALL hair appointments where you have booked a wash please arrive 20-25 minutes early – this is because a 15 minute slot is allocated before your hair appointment for you to wash if you wish.

Hair washing facilities

If you have booked for a hair appointment with a wash we will have a selection of battery operated shower heads and pump action shower heads to enable you to wash your own hair into sinks and tubs.

We will have extra urns heating water from 5.30am this year however we cannot promise the water will always be hot later on in the day due to the huge demand and also electricity restrictions mean we cannot run all the heaters once the hair dryers are on.

 

You are however welcome to either shower before you come to us or use our showers to wash your own hair.

 

We provide all shampoo and conditioner. Please remember to bring your own towel.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the festival!
