Since festival season is upon us once again, I thought it might be fun to do a quick roundup of my can’t survive festival season without beauty must-haves. Quick and easy, these products will keep you looking great through the party weekend yet will not require much effort on your part!
Deep conditioner – a deep conditioner is a must in a desert heat. I love how rich and moisturizing the Kiehl’s Damage Repairing & Rehydrating Conditioner is. I try to keep it in my hair as long as I can to replenish the moisture and bring shine back to my hair.
Dry Shampoo – I think it’s a must to bring one with you anywhere, especially to the desert. With the heat, sweating is inevitable and your hair is going to need a “pick me up” much sooner rather than later. I also like to spray a bit of it throughout my hair to give it a little volume. IGK and DryBar are my favorites.
SPF lip balm – I think this one speaks for itself; lips are so sensitive so moisture and SPF constantly need to be re-applied. I absolutely love this Sugar Lip Treatment by Fresh – it does the job and comes in a few different tints if you also wanted to add a little bit of color.
Waterproof mascara – I don’t know about you guys, but my mascara always runs on a hot day and I end up with black flecks on my undereye area. The easiest solution to that is wearing a waterproof mascara. I like High Impact Waterproof Mascara by Clinique—it lengthens my lashes and is very easy to take off with makeup remover at the end of the day.
BB cream – I am not a huge fan of foundations on regular basis let alone on a desert getaway. It gets too cakey and looks awful within the first hour of being out so I always opt for something lighter and more natural like this Tarte BB cream. It gives just enough coverage while still looking fresh.
Face mist – can’t say enough about how much I like a good face mist on a hot and dry desert day. It’s a perfect boost of hydration while not packing on too much product on top over and over. I like to keep one in my bag and just spritz throughout the day. I recently tried the Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water by Herbivore, and I’m definitely taking it with me to the festival, it’s so refreshing!
Eye cream – undereye area, much like your lips, is super sensitive so it definitely needs extra love and attention especially if you’re in a dry climate. I always make sure to pack a super hydrating undereye cream when heading to the festival weekend and apply a generous amount before going to bed. I find that it really helps with my make up creasing less the following day. My go-to cream is the Moisturizing Eye Bomb by Belif.
Body Shimmer – you guys know I love a good body glow and specifically for the desert, I like something oil based for extra moisture. This MoroccanOil Shimmering Body Oil gives a subtle sparkle and tons of moisture. It’s very lightweight and not greasy which is my favorite part about it.
Body moisturizer – a rich body moisturizer to apply at night after a day out in the heat is an absolute must for me. I love the Coconut Melt by Kopari—it’s natural, extremely moisturizing, and alcohol free so it’s truly non drying. Plus this product is a multitasker and can be used as a hair mask, lip balm, and even makeup remover.
