Going for a music festival well-packed and prepared lets you fuss less about getting messy and sticky, and focus on looking your best while you rave. Here are 10 things – all given a nod from our Beauty Editor Tengku Zai – which you need to have with you all day:

1. Sunscreen
Don’t underestimate the power of UV rays if you're going to be at the festival in the daytime.
Clinique Sun SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream, RM120

2. Concealer
You're probably not going to want to wear foundation and sweat it off in streaks, so a concealer is your best friend if you need to hide blemishes.

3. Waterproof eyeliner
Waterproof for when things get a bit hot or wet, but so you can draw the coolest feline flick if you like.

4. Multipurpose makeup stick
Rejoice for dual purpose products! Give your lips a hit of colour, and your cheeks a healthy flush.

5. Lip balm
Keep your lips smooth and chap-free as you go wild.

6. Face spray
Refreshing and soothing, face sprays give thirsty skin relief you’ll appreciate in the hot weather.
Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist

7. Cleansing facial wipes
You're bound to start feeling sticky after a few hours in the crowd. Freshen up with wet wipes.

8. Hair makeover spray
Prolong and plump up your fabulous festival 'do with a spray here and there.

9. Hand sanitiser
Keep your hands clean; a nifty bottle of hand sanitiser does the trick if a bathroom is too far away.

10. Perfume
Combat nasty odours from all that moshing with a spritz of perfume.
