So you're going to Coachella. Congrats! You've probably already figured out your music festival capsule wardrobe (you have, right?) but have you packed your beauty essentials? While many festival beauty guides will focus on how to get perfect beach-made wavy hair (the better for resting flower crowns upon of course) and elaborate makeup tutorials, ours is a bit different. We're focused on how to make and keep yourself as comfortable as possible while in the sweltering desert heat. We're thinking all the usual travel necessities—moisturizing products with high SPF and the like—with just a little fun thrown in. Definitely the most important aspect of Coachella is the music (and celeb-spotting) but we're here to make sure you look (and feel) as good as possible without going overboard with prep.
