Daisy Lowe on Festival Style, Earplugs, and the Importance of Perfume

If you’re heading off to a festival this summer, chances are you will, in Daisy Lowe’s words, “panic pack.” It’s something Lowe has always done before decamping to a field. But not this year. This year she is prepared. “I’m obsessed with pinning things,” Lowe told us; she’s been pinning her festival inspiration onto Pinterest boards ahead of Glastonbury this week. “Pinterest has been really useful. It’s a great tool and resource of ideas. I’m a vintage lover, so I’ve been looking at incredible ’30s, ’50s and ’70s pieces. It’s also helped to remind me I need to take cashmere socks for cold nights and Compeed blister plasters!”

We grabbed 15 minutes on the phone to talk festival essentials and inspiration with Daisy Lowe. Keep scrolling for the model’s tops tips…

On Festival Essentials…

“So, it’s always really important to have wet wipes, deodorant and fragrances. I’m a big fan of Byredo—I have the new one Rose of No Man’s Land. I’m obsessed with Gypsy Water in my hair; it’s beautiful. aAd Mohave Desert—which is actually a place near Coachella. I go and spend all my money on Byredo!”

Lowe likes to smell unique: “I love layering them all; that way no one smells entirely like you. I’ll spray one on the back of my neck, my chest and my hair,” she reveals.

As for makeup, Lowe keeps it simple: “I’ll be taking my Tom Ford Traceless Foundation and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage; I get hayfever, so it conceals the redness around my nose and eyes, especially important at Glasto where I’ll be in a field!”

“Evian water spray or Shu Uemura Rose Mist, as a refresh are great. Ooh and glitter—that’s a must! I’ve been playing with a few different golds from MAC and Tom Ford.”
