This weekend our Deputy Editor Emma, headed to Chelmsford to spend some quality time with some of the UK’s finest celebrities (quick nod to the TOWIE cast) at Virgin Media’s Louder Lounge at this year’s V Festival.

The lineup for V Fest this year was pretty impressive. We had Katy Tunstall, Ellie Goulding, Bruno Mars, Razorlight and Katy B on Saturday and The Saturdays, The Pierces, The Script, Rihanna, Calvin Harris and Eminem on Sunday… just to mention a few! However rather than spending the entire time swamped in the throngs of 100,000 festival goers, my friend and I spend our time between acts very productively backstage at Virgin Media’s Louder Lounge; drinking cocktails in the Roof Gardens, having our makeup done with MAC cosmetics, eating copious BBQ food and celeb spotting.

MAC Charts Smoky Rococo

Our MAC Smoky Rococo makeover

Our first port of call on Saturday was to head to the MAC tent where we got our festival look perfected. They had created four face charts especially for the weekend and both my friend and I opted for slightly different versions of the Smoky Rococo. Our favourite products used? Well on my eyes it had to be the amazing MAC Pigment in Antique Green. It was super intense with underlying green tones which looked fab over the black smoky eyes. For my lovely friend it had to be the MAC 7 Lash false lashes. They have an almost invisible seam and gorgeous sweeping wings, making her eyes look incredible!

After we were prepped and ready, we head off into the depths of the louder lounge, quickly dropping by the St Tropez tanning Yurt (which apparently stayed open late for Alexandra Burke especially on Sunday!). Plus there was the ever popular game of celeb spotting and if you’re a fan of The Only Way is Essex you wouldn’t have been disappointed… Sam and Billy Faiers seemed to pop up everywhere and Harry and Joey Essex made an appearance too. Mylene Klass was there on Sunday looking fabulous with some bright coral lips and pop star Alexandra Burke also looked great in a floppy sun hat. Billy Piper, Pixie Lott and David Gandy were also hanging around, as was Doctor Who star Matt Smith and his girlfriend Daisy Lowe.

What we loved from the weekend?

Rihanna and her cute denim look and fabulous makeup, Calvin Harris and a tent full of people only wanting to dance, Bruno Mars (who we now quite want to marry) and his amazing voice, Eminem and D12 going old school singing Purple Pills and the haven of the Lil-lets loos in the Louder Lounge; I literally don’t know what I would have done without them.
