We all know that preparing for last minute festival looks can be stressful, which is why I’m here to help you out with a list of beauty essentials you should have in your bag at all times. Coachella Weekend 2 is just around the corner, so close your laptop–after you’ve read this, and make a run for it to your nearest beauty supply store!
Starting off strong with Lemonhead LA’s most popular product: SPACEPASTE® ($22). As seen on HBO’s Euphoria, Spacepaste® is the perfect festival or concert essential. To be honest, even wearing this mess-free glitter on a normal day can boost your confidence and make you feel like you’re in a movie. The glitter is available in 24 beloved shades; one for each outfit you have planned out. Spacepaste® can be purchased at Urban Outfitters, Naimies, or https://getlemonhead.com/.
Another beauty essential is definitely some sunscreen. Beat the heat with the viral Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40 ($22+). Not only does this sunscreen have a high amount of SPF, but it also contains Hyaluronic Acid + Niacinamide; perfect for those fine lines and dry, dull skin! Purchase Glowscreen at Sephora, or https://supergoop.com/.
Still haven’t found a good lip product that will keep your lips hydrated and looking good all day? Well you’ve come to the right place, because I have a holy grail product for you. Summer Friday’s Lip Butter Balm ($24) is THE absolute must have if you’re planning on partying in the desert. The lip balm comes in 6 beautiful shades, and will match with any outfit you have planned. If my words still haven’t convinced you to get up and go purchase this product, each color has a different scent, or “flavor”. I have several of these lip balms and I legitimately cannot leave the house without at least one of them in my bag. You need this. Head over to Sephora to snag the Lip Butter Balm, or purchase at https://summerfridays.com/.
Now, because of all the stress you may be dealing with when planning your outfits and makeup looks, you may wake up with a pimple or two the day before. I’ve had my fair share of stress blemishes, and it’s only ever caused me more stress–and some aggravation. The one thing that has saved my life is COSRX’s Acne Pimple Master Patch ($6). I’ve tried a few hydrocolloid patches, but these have worked wonders for me. For the best results, leave them on overnight, and remove in the morning. Poof! Pimples gone. They’re not that hard to see with the naked eye either, so you can even get away with wearing a patch or two throughout the day. Make sure to avoid the spot while doing your skincare routine or makeup in order for the patches to work efficiently! Run to your nearest Ulta, or purchase Acne Pimple Master Patch online at https://www.cosrx.com/.
Hopefully you feel a little more prepared and relieved after reading this beauty guide. Writing this even made me feel better, and I’m not planning on attending any festivals anytime soon. But as I mentioned earlier, close your laptop, turn off your phone, and head to your nearest Ulta or Sephora for these products before they sell out! Rock festival season and be the parent in your friend group that’s prepared for any situation, whether it be a glitter touch-up, a sunburn, or stubborn acne.
