V festival is running from 22nd-23rd August and Pixie Lott will be at the Virgin Media Louder Lounge

We know, we know, the sky’s looking a bit grey and we’ve got our umbrella ready to open at any minute, BUT summer’s not over guys! With V festival still to come this weekend, petite popstar Pixie Lott has got some tips and tricks of how to stay looking fierce at the festival!

Why does it always rain on me?
‘If you are camping my advice would be to pack dry clothes in something completely waterproof – like a sealed plastic bag. Pack a waterproof poncho and wellies just in case!

Fresh and clean
‘Wet wipes and antiseptic wipes are a must! A toilet roll too.’

Box it up
‘As glass isn’t allowed into festivals, boxed wine with plastic glasses is also my tipple! Also handy to pack one large battle of water with a couple of little ones – you can use your large bottle to fill up from the drinking water taps.’

Here comes the sun!
‘If the sun comes out! Sun cream –Lancaster Sun Beauty Velvet Touch Cream SPF30 – and NuBo Instant Lip Perfection SPF15 (this is very compact, hydrates and protects the lips from the sun’s damaging rays.)

Got my eyes on you
‘Focus on the eyes for festivals – your lips wear off. Have fun! I’ve drawn on little hearts, stuck on diamantes around my eyes. I’ve had sunflowers drawn on my face. A smoky drawn-out eye. I love doing it on myself.’

Flower power
‘At festivals MAC’s body art team have done flowers wrapped round my legs. Shove flowers in your hair, tie bandanas around it, put loads of plaits in it.

Hair flare
‘A look me and Holly [Pixie’s hair stylist] do is little plaits with bows swen in the ends. Make it as messy and big as possible! I love experimenting with styles like little plaits and little ribbons with bows. Pack a bottle of Batiste dry shampoo…a definite must!

Fringe benefits
‘Pop along to a vintage shop or even a charity shop as they always have some good fashion gems ready to buy! I bought a great red suede fringed jacket from Sandro.’

Feeling shady
‘You always need shades for the sun and when if your eyes get hazy from a late night or no sleep weekend! I have some crazy fun pineapple ones and some chic Fendi ones.’

Back it up!
‘A chic rucksack is always good to put in all your essentials – dry shampoo, baby wipes etc – and you won’t lost it when it’s on your back.’

And the most important tip of all that Pixie has for us? ‘Enjoy and have fun!’

We couldn’t agree more!

Pixie Lott will be at this year’s Virgin Media Louder Lounge at V Festival.
