The passes are in your possession, transportation is nearly settled, you have your outfits and your sunnies packed… Coachella is coming, bbs. But what about the Coachella beauty? Nobody but nobody goes into the desert without a little lip balm…and more importantly, SPF (seriously, slather that sh*t on).
First things first, quickly self-administer a Myers-Briggs personality test, then determine which of the below best fits your needs. Every gal will find her beauty essentials here… so whether you came for AC/DC, Florence + The Machine, or Drake, we’ve got you.
IF YOU’D RATHER BE AT BURNING MAN…
You just want to jam, man. For the girl who smells like patchouli (and maybe a hint of rose), Eminence’s new 3 in 1 cleansing water and Rahua’s body oil are desert lifesavers. And you’d never forget your Aura Spray…
YOU’RE IN IT FOR THE ‘GRAMS
…and you’re even apt to post a product insta to show your beauty goodies. Brands like Korean cult-fave TonyMoly and the brand new Christopher Kane x NARS collab are surefire ways to bring the double taps.
FOR THE OFF DUTY MODEL
You might be in the California desert but they better believe you know your French pharmacy essentials. Hair messed-to-perfection, cheekbones perfectly highlighted, and lashes quickly lengthened…? Sounds about right.
