[infobox subtitle=”How To Survive The Heat” bg=”blue” color=”white” opacity=”off” space=”30″ link=”no link”]Beauty Essentials[/infobox] When it comes to music festival makeup, less is always more. Because the weather tends to get hot, and by hot we really mean scorching, makeup, when hastily chosen and prolifically applied, often leads to undesirable cakiness and runniness. Trust us, the last thing you want, whether it at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Sasquatch, or Stagecoach, is raccoon eyes.
Don’t worry, we know the idea of having makeup last all day, through sweat and god knows what else, sounds daunting. But, it’s really not as complicated as it seems.

For a fresh flawless complexion that stays on all day, you’ll want to prep your face with a silicone-based primer before applying foundation. Perfect for people with slightly more sensitive skin, the silicone creates an even layer for the foundation to adhere to, which means longer lasting make up!
Again, you’ll want to choose a silicone-based foundation. Because you’ve used a silicone-based primer, the last thing you want to do is counter its effects with a water-based foundation. Remember, the silicone will act as a sealant preventing both moisture loss and moisture penetration (humidity). It is important to remove all the makeup post day’s worth of festival activity. Bonus points if you’re using one with SPF!
Blushes and Shadows
Cream-based blushes and shadow will be the better option for long wear. Not only do they glide on, but they also stay that way. Best part? They add a whole new meaning to your smooth and hydrated look.
Waterproof Concealers, Eyeliner, and Mascara
Probably a no-brainer, but you’re going to want to finish your makeup with products that won’t run hence, waterproof concealers, eyeliners, and mascaras. To minimize shine that may accumulate throughout the day, we recommend keeping a small packet of blotting paper in your bag.
Ta-da! Prepare to be run-free!
