Camping can be tough on a girl, but roughing it doesn’t have to mean looking rough. Seriously. There are plenty of fabulous products out there that can really help make you feel and look almost beautiful after a chilly night in a tent and three days without a hair brush. I’m going to dig around and unearth some great ideas to add a real dash of glam to your camping over the next coming weeks, so let me know what you think! Would you give any of these a try?
First up is Clinique. Launched a couple of weeks ago, this Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins is just brilliant! And the colours! Six years in the making, these pots of polish are good to skin and eyes, high shine, quick drying and chip resistant (with the collection’s base and top coats applied). And did I mention the colours? There are 12 permanent shades and nine limited edition, including my favourite camping shade: 70 and Sunny. I love that nail polishes are popping up everywhere in really funky, surprising colours. Nail polish may not seem like much of a camping necessity but don’t underestimate how nice it is to have something to hide the dirt, grit and charcoal that can get under your nails when you’re out in the wild…. (When you get back to your urban life you can pop on a metallic grey like Concrete Jungle or Made of Steel!)
The other product I now throw in my camping beauty bag is this Moisture Surge CC Cream. This little tube is compact but it’s powerful stuff and in minutes it’ll get you looking like you can camp with the best of them. You don’t even have to confess to wearing it it’s that light. You’ll come back from your morning shower looking more like you’re staying in a 5 star hotel. It adds glow, corrects colour (that’s the “CC”), hydrates and it’s SPF 30. Love it.
My other little must have is their newly reworked and much loved multi-tasker, Fresh Bloom All Over Colour. It’ll give you a glorious glow like you’ve just been scared by an adder that turned out to be a stick. You can buy all these online here.
