Eeekkkk! Can you all believe that it is almost summer? Holy moly, the time is flying so fast, and, of course, with summer comes—*drum roll*—FESTIVAL SEASON! Now, as you all know, over the summer, I tend to be all about natural beauty looks—especially since the heat and humidity will literally melt that makeup off your face. Let’s be honest: No one wants to look like a hot mess, right? Since music festival season is literally just around the corner, I thought I would share some of my favorite long-lasting beauty products to help achieve an easy festival beauty look. Whether you are headed to Coachella, Stagecoach, or Glastonbury, or just are looking to update your beauty routine to something more boho-inspired, you are going to want to make a stop at your local Target store and pick up a few of these products. Trust me: These beauty products are MUST-HAVES!
BRING ON THE EARTH TONES
Every festival-season beauty is inspired by the free-loving flower child. Beauty trends are filled with earth tones of greens and bronzy browns, sweeps of shimmering gold, and neutral lips. This season is all about the brows—BOLD BROWS! You know what they say: Brows are the quickest way to frame your face. So for this festival-season look, I decided to embrace bold brows and earthy shadows paired with a neutral lip and tousled waves for the hair.
For the eyes, I reached for the NYX Cosmetics Go-To Palette in Wanderlust. O-M-G, this eye shadow palette is life. Filled with a beautiful array of both matte and shimmery shades, this palette can take you from day to night within minutes as the shadows apply effortlessly to the skin with their intense pigmentation. The NYX Cosmetics Go-To Palette in Wanderlust is the perfect travel palette, as it also includes a blush, bronzer, and highlighter. I am OBSESSED! Paired with a bit of the NYX mascara and some simple nude lipstick, this look is simple and super boho. Just add a few dots to your forehead, and voila—channel your inner Coachella Kendall Jenner.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”5543″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”5540″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”5542″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]
GET GLOWING SKIN
Since festival season usually means A LOT of outside time, I tend to choose long-wearing formulas to help give me the whole no-makeup makeup look. The hot desert sun at Coachella can get you pretty hot and sweaty, so what better way to be prepared for the sun than with a few of my favorite beauty must-haves that I picked up at Target recently.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5549″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]HYDRATE THE SKIN: The key to glowing skin is to start with a hydrated base. I have been loving adding the Pixi Beauty Rose Oil Blend Facial Oil to my routine. This ultra-nourishing oil rejuvenates, restores, and helps renew the skin’s luminosity. Added bonus: It smells SOOOOO good. DON’T FORGET THE SPF: SPF is something that is ULTRA important when you are standing in the harsh sun rays of the desert. The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 60 is a super lightweight, quick-absorbing sunscreen. I have been a longtime fan of this SPF as it absorbs into the skin flawlessly without interfering with makeup application after apply. PLUS, it is perfect for all skin tones, as it doesn’t leave an ashy white film at all. I am OBSESSED![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5536″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]START WITH A PRIMER: Long-lasting makeup is major when you are out in the blazing desert heat, so I recommend reaching for NYX Cosmetics Hydra Touch Primer. This primer is AWESOME, with its skin-loving ingredients: chamomile, green tea, and ginseng to help create a smooth, flawless canvas for long-lasting coverage. It is simply a MUST-HAVE for a long day out in the sun. ADD LIGHT COVERAGE: I have been loving the NYX Cosmetics Color Correcting CC Cream. I have shade medium/deep to help boost my complexion thanks to the vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 infused with peach CC cream. It gives a nice light coverage as it turns from peach to a sheer finish. This stuff ROCKS![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5545″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]ADD AN ILLUMINATOR FOR LIGHT STROBING: Add a bit of shimmer to the tops of the cheekbones and the top of the brow bone. Since you’ll be in the sun for long hours while attending your festival, I would use two illuminators to make sure your highlight is on point all day long. Add a bit of the NYX Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator to give the skin a light amount of sheen to the areas you want to highlight (tops of cheekbones, brow bone, inner eye corner highlight, and don’t forget the decolletage). Followed by a light dusting on top of the highlighted areas with the NYX Cosmetics Illuminator, this beautiful gleam-enhancing shimmer powder is the perfect amount of glow. Plus, the powder on top of the cream will help lock in the staying power. ADD LIGHT CONTOUR + BRONZING TO THE CHEEKS: Of course, when you strobe and highlight, you need to add a bit of warmth to the skin. The NYX Cosmetics Highlight & Contour Pro Palette is awesome. This palette has a bit of goodness for everyone. Eight shades are within this palette—four highlighter shades and four contour shades to help you customize and emphasize your features with the perfect highlighter or bronzer to your skin tone. Throw your hair back into a crown braid, and voila—simple, glowing skin with a hint of a bohemian vibe. Easy, peasy, right?[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5550″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”5533″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]
After a long day in the heat, something you need to do is make sure to take care of your skin. Time to take off the makeup, dirt, and grime and hydrate the skin to prepare for day two of the festival. Reach for something hydrating and soothing, like the Pixi Beauty Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths. These cleansing cloths are quickly becoming a diehard favorite. They cleanse the skin so gently while removing every trace of makeup and never leaving the skin tight and dry afterward. Followed it with the Pixi Beauty Hydrating Milky Serum to help bring some much-needed moisture back into the skin after a long day out in the sun. This nutrient-rich serum restores dehydrated skin with the unique blend of rose flower extract, jojoba oil, and aloe vera—this stuff ROCKS and is a major must-have for a day in the sun.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5530″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]So there you have it: some festival beauty must-haves, and you are ready to go.
