It’s festival season! And whether that means joining late night drum circles, starting your own nonstop dance party, or maneuvering your way to the front to see headliner Bey slay it on stage, there’s one thing all Coachella goers have in common: you gotta bare the heat. And with top looks setting the fashion stage for summer, you need to make sure you can master your makeup looks so they can handle the dry desert.
The best way to add fun pops of color to your look is with a liquid eyeshadow that won’t crease or fade throughout the day. You won’t need to trek back to your tent to reapply it. We recommend jane iredale’s Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow. It comes in a variety of shimmery shades and its quick-dry formula and easy application allows you plenty of time to pose for a few Instagram photos before hitting the mainstage.
With that scorching sun beating down all day, you don’t want to apply a heavy, cream-based foundation to your face. Opt for a lighter, powder foundation. We recommend Natural Mineral Loose Foundation by Youngblood. Whether you’re opting for a natural look or you’re ready to go all-out with the body glitter, this foundation is perfect for any look and any skin type.
For a radiant, sun-kissed look, apply highlighter to your cheekbones and eyelids. Stila Shape and Shade Custom Contour Duo is an ultra-creamy soft contour and highlighter duo. Perfect for day or night, this is long-lasting, waterproof, and sweat-proof making sure you won’t be missing a beat.
With Queen B as this year’s festival headliner, we can’t suggest any lipstick except for Lipstick Queen’s Queen Bee. Festival season is the time to experiment with color. And while chapped lips are the actual worst, you don’t have to pick between radiant color or a dull lip balm. Queen Bee hydrates and adds a bronze, gold finish with nourishment that will leave your lips feeling like they just got a spa treatment. Plus, Lipstick Queen offers a plethora of other bold, daring colors you can stock up on before packing your bags.
Setting Spray for Days
It’s easy to leave your campsite in the morning and not come back until the break of day. So make sure you have a powerful setting spray to keep your makeup look in check. Try Colorescience’s Sunforgettable Setting Mist. It’s formulated with nourishing Vitamin E to revive and rehydrate skin before, during, and after sun exposure (which you’ll be getting a ton of this weekend).
Heading to any festival without sunscreen is a death wish. Make sure the SPF is high and you reapply it every couple of hours. But we’re gonna recommend you checkout this article we just wrote on sunscreen. It gives you the low-down on everything you need to know about choosing the perfect sunscreen for you.
