by Stephanie Montes

Whether you’re en route to Coachella or planning to hit another music festival this season, braving the high temps, windstorms and the all-night dance parties requires a strategic beauty plan. Before you partake in the cliché festivities, pack a few essentials that are sure to keep you looking fabulous no matter how hot or long the days become.

Festival Survival Kit

Lip Balm

Apply this every second you get.

Face Mist

Spritz for an instant cool down.


Protect your skin from that hot desert sun.

Body Wipes

Keep things fresh.


Sunglasses are great for obvious reasons: They look cute and are perfect for hiding dark circles. They also shade the sun from the delicate under-eye area, which slows down signs of aging.

Moisturizer Stick

Feeling dry? It's like a Chapstick for your body.

Beach Towel

Lay a chic beach towel under a palm tree for an instant beauty-rest session.


You don't have to tote an entire bottle of perfume to smell good all day. Opt for a cute mini version instead.


This mineral sunscreen makes skin protection so easy. Dust it on with the built-in brush without missing a beat.

Face Wipes

You won't believe how good it will feel to wipe all that dust off your face.

Water Bottle

Most festivals allow you to bring in empty water bottles and refill at their water stations. Trust us, you'll want to stay hydrated.
