Festival Must Haves

Coachella, Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, Sasquatch, Bonaroo and Governors Ball. Come one, come all. If you’ve got a festie bestie, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Otherwise, this is just nonsense talk. Festival season is officially upon us and to me, it signals that spring-and soon summer-will be here! I usually hit up2 a year, but this year will be lacking as I’ve booked up my weekends with wedding makeup. Let me be your festival mama instead and send you off with everything you’ll need to enjoy the show and still look and feel cute as hell.

Also, before we go, I’d asked if anyone would be interested in a gently-used makeup blog sale as I’ve just moved and found a ton of stuff I don’t need/want. Several people were like, aw yeah, so here you go. Shop away!

      I really like it! The feel is really lightweight and non-sticky and I think I like it more than any BB or CC cream I’ve tried! I put it on the list because it has SPF 30 too!

    I typically do 2 festivals a year too, but this year I’m slammed with wedding jobs, blog work, and travel! Bringing extra battery packs is absolutely essential, for sure!
