Beauty Survival Guide For Coachella 2017 and the Music Festival Season

Kicking off in just a few days, on Friday April 14, is the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. And that means that the music festival season is finally upon us. Coachella is a place to see and be seen, just as much as it is a music and arts event. This is true of most of the major music events you’ll be attending this spring and summer. We’ve come to really look forward to the season, not only for the music but also for the friends that we get to see and catch up with. You just never know who you’re gonna run into (Trust Us On This One!) and you’ll want to look picture perfect. Read on to find out what you do (and don’t) need to look festival festive!

Let’s start with a quick rundown of your wardrobe. Um … you’re going to be outdoors all day … and night. Not to mention that temperatures in Indio will be in the 90s throughout the day and not really expected to cool off too much at night – like in the upper 50s! With that having been said, we still suggest that you bring a light jacket. Dress in light, breathable fabrics. To get a better idea of the temp and terrain check out TME Picks: Michael Stars On The Fray Wide Brim Hat in Java ($54); Free People Tyler Ankle Boot ($350); Dior Reflected Prism Aviator Sunglasses ($550); Free People Hooded Frayed-Hem Jacket in Moss ($128).

As for your beauty products, this is a place to keep it simple. We actually read a perfume suggestion for Coachella and just about died laughing. You all know we love our fragrances, but anyone who’s been to a warm weather outdoor festival knows that fragrances are a lovely way to attract insects and piss off other festival-goers. However, deodorant is a must. TME Pick: Milk Makeup Natural Deodorant ($14) and speaking of those bugs check out Eco-Armour Outdoor Botanical Insect Repellent & Moisturizer ($14.99). Eco-Amour is a TME Favorite for a million reasons, but the double-duty Outdoor is a must-have for Coachella and all summer long!

A beauty regimen for music fest season shouldn’t be complicated and it begins with sunscreen! For all over protection our pick is Sun Bum Spray Sunscreen SPF 50 ($15.99). Next up is BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer. TME Pick: Laura Mercier Tinted Illuminating Moisturizer SPF 20 ($44). We realize that not everyone is down with a complete no-makeup look. So, to round out your music fest beauty regimen, we turn to TOO FACED Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara ($23) and another must-have product … lip balm. Tinted lip balm is a must to keep your pout pretty. TME Pick: jane iredale Lipdrink SPF 15 Lip Balm ($15).

Throughout the day (and night) you’re going to want to freshen up. Team TME is obsessed with jane iredale Hydration Sprays ($29). Also, an absolute must-have is a pack of cleansing cloths like Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth On The Glow Cleansing Cloths ($30 - 10pk). As for your hair, we recommended that cool Michael Stars hat for a reason, but you may also want to opt for dry shampoo. TME Picks: Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($10) or Bosley Pro BosRenew Volumizing Dry Shampoo ($18.95).

Two last things before we all head out into the sunset. You need something to put all of your stuff in and our pick is Stussy x Herschel Clear SP16 Tarpaulin Lawson Backpack Handbag from REVOLVE ($80). Now, you have all of the things that you’ll need for an amazing time at Coachella and throughout the music fest season … except a safety plan. You need to remember that while you’re having a great time (and looking good doing so) be smart and stay safe and we have found an article on TRAVELGROM, “20 must-know Coachella tips and tricks” by Evan Thomas, that you need to read before you go anywhere! 

See ya’ out there. XO Team TME
