Festival season is finally upon us! Coachella starts this weekend, and all summer long there are hundreds of music festivals all over the world.
Pulling off the perfect festival style can be done in a variety of ways and you can get more creative than just a day at the office. Because they are a celebration of art, music, and culture, festivals are just the place to experiment with your hair and makeup.
Keep reading to see my top festival beauty essentials.
First thing’s first: you need sunscreen! Nothing ruins a festival quicker than a sunburn, so stay protected with a reliable bottle of sunscreen and be sure to bring some with you to the festival as well. This lightweight sunscreen from Chantecaille doubles as a primer, making it the perfect product for anyone wearing makeup and staying safe from the sun.
Face jewels are all the rage right now, and The Gypsy Shrine makes some of the coolest sets around. The face jewel sets do all the work for you, coming in easy-to-apply stickers that will make you look like a sparkling festival fairy.
Speaking of sparkle, lay on the glitter big time with Lemonhead’s vegan, cruelty-free glitter jars. Apply strategically to the eyes or cheeks for a pretty, mystical look, or dab on everywhere for a shimmering makeup look that is out of this world. You can also sprinkle the glitter in your hair—glitter roots!—or on your body; the options are endless!
Stay refreshed and hydrated with a facial spray. Just like their classic water bottles, Evian’s facial spray is just the thing for when your skin is feeling dehydrated or tired. It’s hypoallergenic and won’t upset makeup, which means you can also use it as a setting spray.
There’s no better time to test out a colorful eyeshadow than at Coachella. To answer all your festival needs, Too Faced has introduced their “Life’s A Festival” collection that is full of technicolor unicorn-themed makeup products. The highlight of the collection is certainly the eyeshadow palette. With 13 rainbow shades and the cutest packaging around, you’ll be able to create all sorts of cool eye makeup looks.
This trio of liquid lipsticks from Colourpop will have you set all weekend long. Featuring fun, bold colors and Colourpop’s rave-worthy formulas, you’ll have a great lip look no matter your beauty mood of the day!
Let’s get real: you are going to get sweaty in the desert. Keep your mascara in place all day long by using a waterproof formula. My suggestion: Diorshow Waterproof. It’s simply the best mascara in the business, and this formula will stay put all the way through the headline performance.
Lip balm is another one of those beauty essentials that you should always have in your purse. Give your usual balm a festival makeover with EOS’s new marine aqua lip balm, which gives lips a slight iridescent glow. Wear alone for a pretty shimmery lip, or layer with your favorite lip product to add another level of glow.
From celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin’s incredibly popular haircare brand The Ouai comes this kit with everything you need to prep your hair for festival season. Featuring travel-friendly versions of The Ouai’s dry shampoo, wave spray, and rose hair + body oil, plus an adorable Chloe & Isabel ponytail clutch to top off your braid or ponytail, you’ll have everything set for gorgeous bohemian hair.
Hair chalk is an easy way to temporarily color your hair, making it a great option for festival beauty. This version from Brite starts out as a liquid before transforming into a chalk, which makes it really simple to apply and customize.
Set your hairstyle for the day with this hairspray from Orlando Pita Play. Created to block humidity, this hairspray will keep your look locked in through any climate, and it smells great, too!
For another hair coloring option, IGK’s “Foamo” is such a cool product. Spray the mousse in your hands and watch the formula bubble up, then apply it to your tresses for a glittery, holographic appearance. Foamo looks so cool when applied to slicked-back hair, but you can also gently apply it throughout your hair for a subtle sparkle.
