Beauty Tips for Concerts!

This weekend in Singapore was blasting with the all-amazing, Coldplay Concert! As a die hard Coldplay fan, I was really extremely lucky to be able to get my hands on the mosh pit ticket. (aka Standing Pen A) While I was squeezing with all the other people at the standing pen, I was so glad that I brought a face mist to the concert. Not only does a face mist hydrate the skin after the long arduous queuing ( I reached the stadium at 12pm, the door opens at 6.30, my my), the face mist also acts as a super great way to cool down! From that, I came up the idea of this post – beauty tips for concerts!


Face Mist

The number #1 item must be a face mist! Replenish the water in the skin from all the sweating under the hot tropical Singapore weather, and sweltering heat from all the squeezing people in the standing pen.

Caudalie Grape Water @ Sephora

This is the one I used! Very moisturizing for the skin and the mini version fits right into my small bag!

Evian Mineral Water Spray

I used to love this face mist so much and Watsons or Guardian used to carry this product, but somehow they were gone and I can hardly find them now 😦 The Evian Spray is definitely a good, budget moisturizing face mist!

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist @ Jurlique

Balance the skin condition, stay hydrated and what’s more? SMELL SUPER NICE with this Rosewater Mist by Jurlique!


Avoid Pony Tails

Instead, opt for these great hairstyles! You’ll want to look good, stay cool and be considerate as the last thing anybody wants is to have hair smack onto your face while you’re jumping to the beats in the mosh pit!!

Paired with a Concert cap, you’re good to go! Make sure you secure the bun tightly!


All things Waterproof/Smudgeproof!

Though I recommend to NOT put makeup for concerts (makes everything easier), but I know we want to take lovely photos during the concert and you still want to look fabulous. So this goes without saying: make sure ALL your makeup you use is waterproof and smudge proof! The last thing you want from an after concert selfie is smudge liners, lipstick, mascara and melting foundation!!

The highly raved super long lasting foundation!! Do use a light hand while applying as the formula is super thick to lock your make up in place!


Lip Tints/Lip Stains/Liquid Lipsticks

Lazy girl trick – apply once and never have to reapply again using these lip products!

Peripera Lip Ink @ Peripera

Peripera’s Lip tints and Lip Inks are really famous for being super long lasting! I know some Watsons carry the brand but I’m not too sure if they still have them! Well, we still have Qoo10.sg to rely on!

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip (Wild Nothing) @ Colourpop

Transfer proof, long wearing and super budget friendly liquid lipsticks from Colourpop is definitely top of the list!


Wet Wipes/Cleansing Sheets

Most convenient item to bring for a concert are these cleansing sheets! You can use them to remove the dirt and grime before, after or even during the concert, wipe your body to cool down and maybe even your phone! (Because we know, you’ve been filming/instagramming every single songs during the concert – okay, at least I did XD)

So here are some beauty tips for concert goers, hope this would be useful for your next event! I totally enjoyed the Coldplay concert and I really cannot get enough of them, totally suffering from Post-Coldplay-Syndrome now T_T
