So once you've got your outfits sorted, your wellies are on and your parka is packed, it's time to focus on your face.

Make-up artist Terry Barber reckons that MAC's Strobe Cream (€31) is a must. Apply all over your face for a dewy, luminous glow.

Pay homage to Woodstock with a cool, trippy but healthy look -- think a sun-flushed cheek, lots and lots of mascara and a slick of coral lippie.

"A bit of eyeliner and mascara is all I wear.

"You don't know when you're going to see a mirror anyway, so best just keep it simple.

"Pack a satchel with any essentials you may need during the day so you're still hands-free. And always take dry shampoo -- it's a brilliant invention."
