Wondering how you’re going to keep your makeup fresh during the 3-day long
marathon festival known as Coachella? Between sweating from the heat and sweating from dancing to the music, keeping your beauty products in check is no easy feat. Not to mention those portable bathrooms aren’t exactly the kind of place you want to be applying eyeliner (yuck!) That’s why we consulted our awesome beauty buyer and makeup artist, Jeannie, on what products we should be stashing in our fringe bags all weekend. Here are her 10 picks for how you can stay looking cool, while everyone else is sweating their face off…literally.
1.) Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer: A great tinted moisturizer is the most you’ll want to be putting on your skin in the hot hot heat. This Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer not only has SPF20 built in, but gives any skin tone a boost of color and glow, without looking whack and orange and sparkly. Plus it’s protecting your skin from the sun!
2.) NYX Matte Blotting Paper: Matte Blotting Papers are totally clutch for absorbing extra sweat and oil that builds up on your skin throughout the day. You can dab these on and not mess up your makeup! Shine from the inside, not the forehead.
3. & 4.) The NYX Doll Eye Liquid Liner & NYX Waterproof Doll Eye Mascara: This might be the only eye liner that could stand up through Coachella! Seriously–put it on, let it dry, and squirt water on your face. No runs. Especially if you pair it with a waterproof mascara!
5.) theBalm’s Stainiac: Give your lips a hint of color you can put on and forget about, like theBalm’s Stainiac. Top it off with a little SPF lip balm and you’ll be good to go for hours!
6.) The Stila Ready for Take Off Makeup Wipes: Since you will most likely be sweating all day, you definitely want to make sure you’re keeping your skin clean. Take two seconds at night and wipe everything away with these super soothing makeup removing wipes from Stila.
7. & 8.) Tint Hair Chalk: Don’t feel like bothering with makeup at all? No problem—let your nails and hair do the talking. Chalk up your strands with some TINT Hair Chalk in your favorite color…purple is always great, but the lime green is my favorite if you want to stand out in the crowd. It washes out easily, so you’ll have no problem going back to your regular schedule on Monday.
9. & 10.) NCLA Celebrity Nail Wraps: Get IG-worthy nails in a flash with a myriad of sick ass nail wraps from NCLA. My top picks for the weekend? Steph’s Galaxy Nail wraps and Madeline Poole’s Orbit Ring. So fly.
