If last weekend's Governors Ball in New York didn't tip you off, we are now in music festival season. It's time to spend hours listening to live music, basking in warm weather, eating delectables from food trucks and flirting with cute guys. Yes, picking out the perfect festival 'fit
will take up a majority of your pre-festival prep time, but don't forget to pack your beauty essentials! It's this step that separates the flower crown princesses from festival queens.
1. Say No To Drip And Dry
While music festivals can be fun-filled days, one of the many festival woes is the port-a-potty. The bathroom situation at festivals tend to be less than ideal. Don't get caught having to "drip dry" this festival season, carry a personal pack of Kleenex toilet tissue or wet wipes. You'll be happy you did.
2. Sunblock, Sunblock and More Sunblock
Let's try to prevent getting sunburnt if we can. Opt for a small compact bottle of sunscreen or BB cream with SPF for your long, hot festival days. Try Smashbox's Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35
to keep the damage to your skin at bay.
3. Keep Those Lips Moisturized
We couldn't be more adamant that you arm your skin from the sun's harsh rays during festivals. Protecting the skin on your lips is just as important. When your sexy matte lipstick wears off and you no longer have the energy to reapply, you'll be itching to moisturize your lips. Make sure you have Blistex Lip Infusion SPF 15
on deck for when you need it.
4. Hair Laid At All Times
You won't have room in your festival bag to carry a boat-load of hair products and sprays. To keep tangles from forming, we suggest carrying a small compact brush like the one you can get here
. It's super tiny and also doubles as a mirror — win win! Another way to keep flyaways at bay is to adorn your hair with a floral crown. Lucy Hale
, Katy Perry
and Kylie Jenner
are among the many celebs to rock this trend.
5. Soak Up Excess Oils
A compact pack of blotting paper is all you'll need from looking oily and greasy as the day gets hotter. If you do plan on wearing foundation and concealer throughout the day, blotting paper will also prove crucial in preventing runny makeup. Our go-to blotting paper is NYX's Matte Blotting Paper
