Festival season is upon us with Coachella part one kicking off the season of music concerts on Friday, April 12. Festival goers could not be more excited. However, as much fun as music festivals can be, the dangers are real. Between extreme sun exposure, endless parties and all that jazz, festival season can take a toll and sometimes even have a negative effect on our hair and skin.
But fear not as we have a list of beauty goods to keep you looking and feeling your best while dancing and bopping to your favorite beats. Ahead, consider this your beauty packing list for an epic music-filled weekend – because the last thing you want to worry about is frizzy hair or dry skin.
Perfect hair kit
Behold the Easy Ouai Kit. Besides having a clever name, this hair essentials pack from OUAI includes three of their key products for close to perfect hair. The Air Dry Foam allows hair to air dry frizz-free and perfects waves sans having to crunch. The Rose Hair and Body Oil calms frizz locks in moisture so skin appears dewy and radiant. The Wave Spray creates that covetable undone texture for sexy festival hair. Best of all, they come inside this super cute clear pouch!
When you’re tired, removing your makeup may sound like too much of a task, but that’s where makeup removing wipes step in. The Cleansing Wipes from Simple remove dirt and makeup without leaving residue or tight-feeling skin.
Dry Shampoo for day two (or three)
Travel-sized dry shampoo is sure to come in handy when you want to preserve your second-day hair look. The Death Valley dry shampoo from R+Co promises to add volume and body while absorbing and adding texture. Sounds like a win-win!
A facial moisturizer that also acts as a sunscreen is a clear winner in our book. The Prisma Protect from Dermalogica offers hydration while protecting you from sun exposure thanks to SPF30.
To keep your lips nice n’ soft you can trust in Glossier’s Balm Dot Com. What’s great is you can also apply it to your cuticles, elbows or any other spots that may need attention.
You’ll want to stock up on sheet masks to brighten, nurture and combat any signs of fatigue. Not only are they quick and easy to apply, but they’ll occupy zero space in your carry-on.
No-makeup, makeup set
If you're all about keeping those brows on check, having flushed cheeks and fluttery lashes, then perhaps The Makeup Set from Glossier is your cup of tea. With this kit you'll have their Cloud Paint, Lash Slick and Boy Brow products for that 'no-makeup' makeup look.
The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look Eyeshadow and Face Palette has everything you need for a full face of gorgeous radiant makeup. This all-in-one palette includes three neutral eyeshadows, a bronzer, two blush and a highlighter to keep you glowing all day or all night.
Volition Face Mist
With so much going on you’re going to need a refreshing face mist for a quick spritz here and there. The Volition Oil-Control Mattifying Mist leaves skin flawlessly matte and hydrated so you can keep looking radiant throughout the day.
