Just because you're spending all weekend outdoors it doesn't mean you have to forego make-up. A few carefully chosen tools of the trade will have you looking as fresh as a daisy from dawn till dusk.

Pack Shavata Arch Enhancer pencil, £10.50, to keep eyes bright. The soft pink light-reflecting pencil accentuates the brow arch and also doubles up as a cheek highlighter.

Mac now handily has a selection of favourite products in travel-ready sizes of 30ml or less. Perfect for a weekend away. Choose from Mac Strobe Cream, Oil Control Lotion, Studio Moisture Cream, Fix+ and cleansers for all skin types, as well as mini Lipgloss, Pigments and Mascara.

Hide imperfections and dark circles under eyes after long nights with the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer, £19.50, at Marks & Spencer.

Much loved by Hollywood celebs, from Drew Barrymore and Kate Hudson to Anne Hathaway, and beauty insiders alike, this instant fix is the key to flawless skin. Water resistant, just a pin-size amount will blend effortlessly, covering everything from blemishes to broken capillaries.

Don't leave home without

Green & Spring Miracle Moisturising Balm, £16, from Space NK, a true hero product. Use it to soothe dry or chapped skin or on cuts and scrapes. Packed with lavender, evening primrose oil and rosemary, it can be applied to fingers, toes, skin and cuticles.

If you're wondering how to keep your hair looking good all weekend, take a tip or two from Rainbow Room international creative directors Suzie McGill and Dylan Brittain who are both part of the team that styles the stars backstage at T in The Park. In previous years they have worked with everyone from Lily Allen to Ellie Goulding.

"Ombre hair is set to stay. It's great for festivals and looks really cool when hair is worn in waves," says Suzie. "It's great to see festival goers be a bit more adventurous with their ombre shades. I think we'll see a lot of pastel tones - pinks, blues and purples. There are so many great products on the market that are all temporary so you can wear them during the festival and no-one will know when you go back to work on Monday."

She says a faux undercut is an edgy way to wear glossy locks, and adding in a side braid will give the style a girly feel.

Start by creating a deep side parting and create a subtle plait using a simple French braiding technique, adding in sections of hair as you go. The braid will sit on the section between the front of the hairline and your ear, ensuring your faux undercut sits on top of the hair.

Continue the braid past your ear and towards the nape of the neck. Then secure using an invisible hair band or some bobby pins and a spritz of hairspray.

According to Dylan, beachy waves are a festival staple.

"If you've got naturally wavy hair this style is perfect.

"If you aren't blessed with naturally wavy hair, the night before the festival wash your hair and apply mousse through towel dried hair before giving the hair a quick blast with the hairdryer. When the hair is 90% dry, take large sections of hair and twist them like a rope to create several loose little buns, pin to secure and then leave these in over night.

"In the morning remove the pins and you'll be left with beautiful beachy waves. Keep your style looking fresh throughout the festival with some dry shampoo."

Finally, say goodbye to raging hangovers with secret weapon

Organic Burst Chlorella, £11.99, from Tesco and Wholefoods. Take the tablets or powder before a night out, back at the tent after the party is over and again the following morning.

Chlorella helps the liver process the onslaught of harmful toxins, removing alcohol from the liver, as well as cleansing it from other chemicals such as environmental pollutants.

A wheatgrass shot the morning after the night before is a one-way ticket to more energy. Densely packed with amazing nutrients, including energy-metabolising manganese, Organic Burst Wheatgrass, £6.69, is full of fibre to fuel the body when it's not sure where its next meal is coming from.
