The Beauty Essentials You Need to Get Through Festival Season

Just because Coachella is over, doesn’t mean festival season is. There’s still tons of music to enjoy and memories to be made this summer. But let’s be real, your festival “look” is almost just as important as attending the festival itself. We know this too and want you to look your best for every Instagram-mable moment. So before you let the good times roll, check out these top beauty picks that are sure to get you through festival season a little less sweaty and a whole ‘lotta cute.

Ethique Face Sampler

If you don’t already know about the brand Ethique, I’m afraid you’re sleeping on something great, so wake up girlfriend! Ethique is the world’s first zero-waste beauty brand complete with a line of solid beauty products packaged in 100% compostable packaging. The sampler set is not only a perfect intro, but it’ll also make your life a whole lot easier this festival season (solid products are super travel-friendly and won’t explode inside your bags). The set contains a cleanser, face cream, serum, facial scrub, and body wash.

Hydropeptide Solar Defense Tinted Sunscreen

Sun protection during scorching festival season is super important. Wearing sunscreen that’s thick, oily and smelly? Yeah, that’s a no. Try Hydropeptide’s Solar Defense Tinted Sunscreen instead. With an SPF 30 and a balancing matte (super important!) sheer tint, you’re left with just the right amount of coverage against the sun and for your complexion. PLUS: The acai, green tea, aloe, and hyaluronic acid will just boost your skin’s defense. Prefer no tint? They have that too.

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Foundation & Concealer

Now that skincare is settled, you may want a full coverage base to look #pictureperfect. No worries, we have the best of the best for you. The newest foundation to join the Laura Mercier family, Flawless Fusion, is one of the best budge-proof, full coverage foundations on the market. It manages to make you look, well, flawless, yet never in a cakey mask-like way. Paired with its matte finish, you’ll be sure to be sweat and oil-free through every song you dance to. If you have issues with creasing or concealer not staying on under your eye, try the Flawless Fusion Concealer too, and thank us later. PRO TIP: If you have extra oily skin, no worries. Bump up your complexion shield with their best-selling Translucent Setting Powder.

Jane Iredale Pretty in a Snap Collection

Jane Iredale knows what she’s doing when it comes to cosmetics and her Spring 2018 Pretty in a Snap Collection is no exception. Just as the name suggests, the carefully curated collection contains products that are easy-to-use, multi-use and will help you get ready quick. The mermaid-inspired Mystikol Powdered Eyeliners (in shades Emerald and Sapphire) come with a built-in brush making them super travel-friendly and excellent for touch-ups. Did we mention the powder formula makes for the perfect smudgy smoky liner look? No perfect liner needed here.

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow

We like to say there’s a time and place for glitter and a music festival is definitely one of those places. This innovative product was included in our guide from last year and there’s a reason we’ve included it again. Simply pat on the eye with the applicator for a sheer wash of shine or pair over a similar eyeshadow shade for maximum impact. For use as a liner, swipe a bit on the back of your hand, grab a liner brush and you’re on your way to standing out day and night. Available in 17 colors and two finishes, glitter and metallic. Prefer something a little less intense? They have a shimmer version too.

Urban Decay Backtalk Eye & Face Palette

We all fell in love with Urban Decay’s classic Naked palettes and this time, they’re back with a palette inspired by one of their best-selling lipstick shades, Backtalk. It’s a warm pink shade that works on every skin tone. The palette contains two blushes, two highlighters, and plenty of eyeshadow options for whatever look you want to achieve. PLUS: The detachable mirror in the middle of the palette is travel-friendly and makes on-the-go application super convenient.
