LONDON, August 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
M·A·C Cosmetics will be descending on the legendary Virgin Media Louder Lounge VIP area at V Festival, Hyland's Park in Chelmsford on the 18th and 19th August, to keep a host of top celebrities, performers and guests looking refreshed from dusk until dawn. M.A.C Artists will also have their brushes at the ready backstage in the Artist's Village where they will be geared up to provide makeup and grooming services to key talent performing over the weekend. Headline acts include The Killers, Snow Patrol, Nicki Minaj, Pixie Lott, Rita Ora, Emeli Sandé, The Stone Roses, Tulisa, Gossip and Cher Lloyd to name a few.
Debbie Finnegan, M·A·C Senior Artist, shares her festival beauty rules to keep you looking great come rain or shine:
"Choose long wear formulas, this will help to increase the longevity of your makeup and allow you to stay looking fresh. Opt for a foundation with an SPF if you are going to be outside all day. M·A·C Pro Longwear Foundation SPF10, will keep you protected. If you are looking for a little less coverage and just want a veil of colour, M·A·C Studio Moisture Tint Foundation SPF15 is the ideal base.
I always like to pack a small touch-up kit which consists of M·A·C Blot Powder, a lovely bright lipstick and M·A·C Demi Wipes - just in case you need to do a quick repair job after a rainstorm/disco nap. The M·A·C Cremeblend Blushers can double up as lip colour if you're in a hurry, my favourite is So Sweet So Easy.
M·A·C Pro Longwear Lipglass is a super hero for girls that can't live without a shiny lip. Finally, finish off your look with a couple of coats of M·A·C Zoom Waterfast Mascara if you want to stand out from the crowd. Be on trend this summer and try M·A·C Superslick Liquid Eye Liner; these sleek liquid liners come in a range of metallic shades and can be a playful addition to your makeup look."
Dean Rudd, M·A·C Senior Artist Manager, has taken inspiration from this year's Virgin Media Louder Lounge eccentric English village theme, developing four gorgeous looks to inspire guests.
