It’s Coachella time and half the fun is planning your festival style! You want to be sun-goddess gorgeous yet practical since you’ll be hot and in the sun for so long, plus you can sacrifice too much of your fun time to your beauty, right?
When it comes to your makeup, you want it to be easy, bronzy, and impenetrable by the sun. Then take creative license with one element, I love the white liner binti look below. The Kate Somerville CC Cream blends beautifully and is SPF 50 without smelling sunblocky or getting in your eyes. The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is a beautiful and difficult to mess up way to add warmth and glowy color. Waterproof mascara is usually unnecessary but is a good idea for Coachella. The Lip Tars are a fun way to add color to your lips, last forever, and come in a million colors then you can just apply the Baby Lips with SPF as needed throughout the day.
For your hair, there are sooo many great head pieces for you to choose from, be it a feather, hair cascade, or band. I love the idea of making your own flower crowns with your own special touches for you and your girls. Dry shampoo is always the hero getting good texture into lazily styled hair, greasy roots, or squeezing another day out of your style. The Surf Spray is a great product for spraying on wet hair and letting your hair dry textured and messily sexy. You’ll want to be sure to have your cute pony tail holders because wearing your hair down may be a good idea at the beginning of the day and then…. the Say Yes to Cucumber Wipes are for your face so they’re great to take your makeup off at the end of the day but it’s also a good idea to have them in your daytime bag in case your feet get dirty, you’re feeling stinky, or something else needs a little extra cleanliness. You’ll want never ending amounts of water to stay hydrated and luscious and these Bobble Bottles are basically genius, filtering any old tap water so you don’t have to keep buying water and wasting more plastic. And lastly, SUNBLOCK!!!! Get the good stuff that’s easy to put on and you’ll want to wear!
A couple times a year Stephanie Johnson comes out with an array of seasonally perfect cosmetic organizers and this Spring and Summer the ones that are really striking our fancy are the Miami Collection! They’re so fun and vibrant in their various shades of neon and crystal clear so you can see what you’ve got rustling around in them. And all the sizes that they come in are so nice so you can get different but coordinating bags for various needs (tiny yellow for purse lipsticks, large orange for traveling toiletries, and medium pink for daily makeup.) Adorable. I love Miami and I love these little buggers.
Leave it to the nail company Ciate to always be coming up with something clever, adorable, and easy for us to adorn our digits with. We had so much fun playing with their Flower Manicure Set which comes with just about everything you need to get creative and make your own perfectly floral mani.
After your cuticle work is done, give your nails a final cleaning off of all left over manicure ruining oils with acetone, alcohol, or Bond-Aid and then you’re ready to tear into your Ciate goodies. The Ciate kit includes a the fast-dry topcoat, polish, real dried teeny-tiny flowers, tweezers to place them with, and a file to remove the extra flower attached beyond the free-edge of your nail.
Here’s how you do it:
1. Arrange the flowers in different piles according to style and size, cutting any down to even smaller sizes. You want them to be ready to go when your nails are wet. 2. Do two coats of colored polish. 3. Apply the top coat to one nail at a time, then the flowers to that nail. The top coat dries really quickly so you only have time to apply it to the one you want the flowers to stick. Then move on to the next. 4. Use the file to take off the extra flowers. File in one direction going from the top of your nail at an angle towards your elbow.
5. Once all the nails have been adorned to your satisfaction do the final top coat to seal those suckers in! Let them dry, don’t rush it.
