Post image for Video: Festival Paint Inspiration

Festival season is like Christmas for us here at Free People. It’s our favorite time of year, and one of the only times of year when we can really go all out with wild outfits, crazy accessories and, of course, face and body paint! There is so much anticipation around Coachella as it kicks off the summer music festival season this weekend, but let’s not forget that we have many, many more festivals coming up this summer! With that in mind we wanted to share some inspiration for ways to use our festival paint this season.Read More

Post image for Festival Hair: A Quick And Easy Style

After day one at a festival your hair becomes a little windswept and unruly, and if you’re camping there’s a slim chance of getting the opportunity to wash it. The best thing to do is to tie it up out of your way. We’ve thought of a cute idea to keep your hair back while still making it look festival savvy: the double braid.

Coconut oil is a Super amazing list that includes usability for your health, hair, skin, pets, cleaning and household kitchen spice supplement www[dot]//tr[dot]im/qsmo0

You will have problems using a coconut milk shampoo with acv rinse in the case that your hair is still greasy, oily or stringy...because you have bleached and or color treated your hair. The reason why is because the natural fat from the coconut milk will adhere itself to damaged hair. That's why it will look stringy. In addition to washing your hair with the natural coconut milk shampoo and using an acv rinse is also use a mild baking soda goop (baking soda dissolved in hot water) and directly apply it to the color treated part of your hair. Then rinse and finish off with an acv rinse. It will get rid of the fat and make your hair fluffy and soft, like you want it to be.

I love henna tattoos so much that I now have 3 real ones that are based on traditional mehndi patterns, a mandala, a peacock feather and a lotus flower. But no real tattoo can completely rival henna; the beautiful imperfections and variations in colour...

Post image for Homemade Natural Bronzer Recipe

When spring hits, I always feel the need to add a little sun-kissed color to my face. I’m naturally pale and don’t have the ability to tan in the slightest, but I think that any shade of skin can get a refreshing pick-me-up from a nice bronzing powder! Read More

omg this is soo cool

Love it! Iv got kinda sunkissed honey colored skin so when I put foundation on , I look like a ghost! So when I put this on, It gives my cheeks a lovely glow, I sweep a brush covered in this powder across my cheeks, nose , forehead and hairline, love it! Dont even need blusher! If you really need stuff for contour, just use this! I think you need to really blend this powder tilli ts fine and thin cos otherwise you will get lumpy brown clumps on your skin! You might wanna try putting a couple a teaspoons of essential oil such as lavender oil in this to make it in to a kinda smooth contour thing, be sure to blend it in a electric machine otherwise it will NOT work! xoxo

Good tutorial! I never would have thought of this. Should a gel be used to keep the hair style in place? Summer humidity does cause some frizzing.

The hardest part of practicing meditation is committing the time to start. But once we set a few minutes every day in achieving that goal of practicing meditation, it will naturally become part of our schedule. Good luck, Jemma! You can make it!
