Coachella (the West Coast's annual arts and music festival) returns on April 11, and I couldn't be more stoked. I mean, what's not to like about sweating your face off in 300-degree heat while listening to some of today's most exciting up-and-coming musicians? Just like last year, I've rounded up the key products I'm recruiting keep my hair, skin, face and body glowing for the exciting 72-hour jaunt.
One word, two syllables: OBSESSED. I love the convenient travel size and lightweight formula of this SPF 30 skin protector. Fifteen minutes before sun exposure, I apply a few thin coats and I'm good to go. I like to keep it in my bag on particularly scorching days.
These are essential to my being. Not only do they look chic, but they're effective, too. They're handmade from durable abaca fibers and real gold leaf, offering on-the-spot oil relief sans pesky residue. I'm naturally pretty oily, so I wouldn't be caught dead leaving home without them.
I cannot be bothered with lipstick when it's ridiculously hot out. Not only does it melt in my purse, but the thick coating can look and feel gross when I'm trying to keep cool and stay hydrated. These lightweight, antioxidant-filled balms come in a variety of shades, so your lips get a hint of color without feeling suffocated.
MMT is my #1 favorite beauty product. I absolutely love the cloud-like whipped formula that glides onto the skin, offering the perfect amount of coverage without ever looking caked on. It's also mattefying, which cuts down on the necessity for frequent face blotting!
I’m going to be real with you: I only wash my hair once during Coachella’s three-day stretch. There's just too much to do to waste time fussing over my mane, so I just let it do its thing. Before I leave for the day's events, however, I revive my unwashed strands with a spirtz of this awesomeness to lift off any annoying oil. It works wonders, every time.
