2. Waterproof Eyebrow
Keep brows on form with the Cailyn Cosmetics Gelux Eyebrow, which features a built in angle brush and innovative waterproof gel formula so that your brows won’t lose definition or color.
Use a BB Cream rather than foundation for festivals. Its silky coverage will feel light on your skin in the heat. BB cream will give you that natural youthful glow all day long. You can quickly dab this on your fingertips and apply with ease, especially if you plan on camping out (Coachella anyone?) for a few days!
4. Waterproof Eyeliner
To intensify your look, swap the black liquid liner with a gel pencil in green or blue to quickly add definition and a pop of color. The pencil comes with a built in sharpener to perfect your winged eyeliner and the formula ensures the color won’t smudge or run.
5. 3-in-1 - Eyes, Cheeks, and Lips
Opt for multi-purpose products that cut down on both time and space such as Be a Bombshell, The One Stick. This soft creamy matte formula can be applied to eyelids, cheeks, or lips to give your complexion a pop of color.
6. 2-in-1 - Blush and Lips
You can instantly perk up your cheeks and add color to your lips with this Blush and Lip Duo. Pop balm over the top of your lips for some added shine.
7. Contour and Highlighter
Shape, define and highlight. This e.l.f. Cosmetics Contour Palette has 4 beautiful shades designed for contouring, shading, sculpting, brightening and highlighting.
8. Setting Spray
With a full day of dancing in the sunshine ahead, keep your makeup on throughout the humidity and heat with LA Girl PRO Prep HD Setting Spray Matte Finish.
9. Post-Festival Skin Care
It’s hard to give your skin the best treatment it needs when you’re at a music festival. Your skin takes quite the beating with sun exposure, dehydration, lack of sleep and clogged pores from leaving your makeup on all day. Let’s get your skin feeling great again. We recommend trying a Ceramide Ion Mask. Ceramide replenishes the natural lipids that are lost from exposure to these harsh environmental factors. They restore and retain moisture and form protective layers that plump the skin.
