It’s that time of year again. Festival season is right around the corner. Whether it means massive events like Coachella, Sasquatch!, Bonnaroo, or something a little more low-key like the Telluride, Bluegrass festival, or even the Phish tour. As fun as festivals are, there are some things you definitely don’t want to forget to pack. Water, your ticket, cameras, and phones are essentials, but today we are going to talk about the beauty essentials you definitely don’t want to forget to throw in your bag.
1.) First things, first you always want to stay hydrated at festivals, not just you literally, but your face too. The moisturizer I’m always reaching for and can’t travel anywhere without is the Doux Moisturizer by Sainte Muse. It’s super light weight which is important to me on days where I’m going to be spending a lot of time outside in the hot sun. It is also keeps my face moisturized all day long, without adding any extra oil to my face.
2.) A tinted moisturizer will do you good at festivals, it’ll give your face a little coverage but it’s super light weight, because who wants a heavy face of makeup when you’re gonna be spending the day sweating your ass of at a music festival, ya idk. My favorite tinted moisturizer is the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer by NARS, but really any tinted moisturizer will do the trick.
3.) I don’t know about you guys, but I think this is a festival essential for sure, whatever you do, DO NOT FORGET A HIGHLIGHTER!!!! I know I love to be glowing and shining and I’m pretty sure you agree, so grab your favorite highlighter and toss it in your bag, (gently of course, you really don’t want to break it, that could end up messy..). If you don’t have a favorite highlighter I recommend going to your nearest makeup store and testing some out.
4.) You’ll want to bring a facial mist with you as well, a mist is nice to have because it’s not only refreshing but if you’re makeup starts to look dull it can pretty much bring it back to life. My favorite facial mist is the Luxe Rosé Facial Mist by Sainte Muse literally one of the best things that has ever entered my life. I love face mists, they are so refreshing but this one is a notch above the rest. It gives my face such a refreshed and clean feeling, but it never makes my skin oily and that’s so important.
This is another super important one, do not forget makeup wipes, I promise you will regret it. I get it, you’re at a music festival, you’re going to be exhausted, BUT It is not okay to sleep with your makeup on. Just grab a makeup wipe and get that makeup off your face. You will feel so much better in the morning and your skin will thank you. Even if it’s the middle of the day and your face just feels gross, grab a makeup wipe and wipe that shit off, you’ll feel better!
6.) Let’s be real, keeping your hair fleeky all damn day at a music festival isn’t an easy task. Always bring Sea Salt Spray. If your hair just isn’t cooperating or you just want some hot beach waves, spray a little sea salt in your hair and you’ll be looking like a million bucks.
7.) Dry Shampoo and music festivals really go hand in hand, showers are usually rare at music festivals so dry shampoo will be a life saver. If you’re hair is looking a little greasy or it just feels gross to you, spray some of that shit in there and you’re hair will look clean and smell clean and it’ll add a little volume to your hair.
8.) Nobody want’s to catch a wild sunburn at a music festival (talk about uncomfortable). Pack sunscreen. It doesn’t matter what kind or what SPF (although I recommend something with SPF 50 or more, to be extra cautious), just make sure you have some sort of sunscreen on at all times.
9.) Going right along with the highlighter, do not forget you body shimmer. Nothing looks better than gorgeous glowing skin. It’ll also totally match the aesthetic… Music Festival… Body Shimmer, they belong together.
10.) Last but not least, don’t forget your tanning oil. Although you don’t want to get sunburnt, getting a little tan wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. I like to apply my Dark Tanning Oil by Sainte Muse anytime I know I’m going to be in the sun for a long period of time. It helps me catch some rays and also keeps my skin looking shiny and smooth.
After you pack those 10 things you’ll be all set on the beauty essentials for your festival season. Have fun and always be safe. I hope your festival season is everything you hoped for and more!
See ya, Taylor.
