FD are having one last festival fling this weekend, so we thought we'd round up this summers festival themes with the classic floral trend. We've got 3 hot looks to ensure your looking your best for this final festival weekend.

Petal Lashes' If you can't be one with nature when you're in a field, when can you?

Flower Lashes
Get the look: You'll need to do a little preparatory foraging for this look, rounding up the prettiest petals you can find - or visiting a craft shop for some fakes. Using Technic Eyelash, £0.99, false lash adhesive carefully glue single petals to your lash line - upper or lower, whichever you prefer. To ground the look, echo the petals' colours in other aspects of your makeup, we love the W7 Purple Haze Eyeshadow Palette, £2.99, in Purple Haze for this look.

Floral Face Paint' Get creative around your eyes, down your neck or even across your forehead: wherever they are, flowers rule the festival field. The secret to achieving this look is having the right applicator brush, try the So Eco Eye Brush Kit, £9.99, and add a grungy, smoky eye to balance out all that girly floral.

Pixie Lott Daisy
Get the look: You'll need the Astor Eye Artist Eye Shadow Palette, £0.99, to achieve the daisies and Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Creme Lipstick, £1.99, in Eros and Fusion shades for a more intricate rose design. Use a narrow brush to create Pixie Lott-inspired daisies. Just dab a circle of yellow in the centre then flick single lines of white outwards from the dot, for the petals. If you feel like getting arty with roses, grab another brush and apply a red lip colours to your face. Because of the brush's domed shape, it's easy to create petals in one colour before revisiting your flower in another, more pinkish lipstick shade, just in certain areas to create a 3D effect. Finish your face with a smoky eye, we recommend the Glo Minerals Smoky Eye Kit, £16.99, to add some attitude - now you're really ready!

Daisy Nails' Choose any base colour from Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish Duo to tailor your fab daisy fingers to you! This is super easy!

Daisy Nails
Get the look: Apply your base colour and let it dry. Grab Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish, £0.99 in 'Get Your Shades On' and create two circles on each nail using a toothpick or nail art pen, one on one side near the tip, one on the other side of your nail, near the base. Take using OPI Nail Lacquer, £3.99, in 'My Point Exactly' on a fine brush to make tiny sweeping motions, work all around your central dot creating the petals. Add a few dots here and there in another colour if you like, we love, OPI Nail Lacquer, £3.99 in the shade 'Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?' then let your artwork dry. Apply your strengthening topcoat from the Rimmel Duo to protect it. Tah dah! Festival-worthy fingers in a flash!
