8 Beauty Items You NEED in Your Bag at Coachella
With Coachella just around the corner, it's time to start preparations.
Let's be real here—showing off each day's outfit is our fave part of the whole weekend. And not only that, but it's the perfect time of year to don crazy, euphoric, bright makeup! One thing that they don't tell you about music festivals in the desert, is that things can get pretty messy. From body odors, to sweating, to chapped lips, chances are, you'll experience it all. So, why not prepare for the inevitable?
Keep reading for the eight beauty items you need in your bag at Coachella:
1. WetBrush Mini Shine: $9.99
If your hair tends to get tangled rather easily, you probably rely on your handy dandy WetBrush. It should be no different come Coachella, because with unexpected sandstorms and days full of walking around, your locks are bound to go into disarray. That's why we plan on throwing in a mini WetBrush into our purses! You can thank us later.
2. Goodwipes Body Wipes: $9.99
Smelling bad is probably all of our worst nightmares. And when you throw in the hot sun with lots of bodies, you're met with a stink that isn't pleasant at all. That's where Goodwipes comes in to play. Their body wipes are essentially a shower in a wipe, and let us tell you, they get the job done!
3. Fenty Beauty Blotting Papers: $16
We've said it before and we'll say it again—it's ridiculously hot in the Coachella Valley. Temps can reach over 100°, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that you might find yourself sweating. And since you'll be wearing makeup, you can't just grab a bandana and wipe your face all over it. You need to be more strategic, so use Fenty Beauty's blotting papers!
4. Fancii Lumi Compact: $29
Since Coachella is a music festival that lasts three whole days, morning, afternoon and night, you're going to have to do touch-ups throughout the day. Whether your false eyelashes fall off, your mascara runs, or your powder gets splotchy, having a compact is a necessity. This one from Fancii is perfect because it lights up, too!
5. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer: $27
Hate to break it to you, but Coachella is a very tiring weekend, meaning the bags under your eyes will definitely come out to play. Take care of them with the best concealer on the market, Shape Tape by Tarte. You'll fall in love with this product, which is why we think you should invest in the full-size, but if you aren't quite ready to make the commitment, just opt for their travel-size one, instead!
6. Kopari Coconut Deodorant: $14
You know when you can smell someone's B.O., and you literally want to vomit because it reeks so bad? Make sure you're not that person and take some deodorant with you. We love the coconut scent by Kopari because not only is it safe for sensitive skin, but it's 100% plant-based, too (which is a total win in our book).
7. Pixi Beauty Nourishing Lip Polish: $12
Bringing a lip scrub to the grounds at Coachella might seem like an odd suggestion, but hear us out. When you're out in the dry sun all day, your lips will become chapped and crusty (we know, yuck). That's why it's important to exfoliate with a gentle polish, like this nourishing one from Pixi Beauty.

8. Fresh Sugar Lychee Rollerball: $25
As you can already clearly tell, we're pretty diligent about maintaining a fresh smell. At Coachella, it's especially important not to lack good body odor since you'll be interacting with people. Throw in a rollerball perfume into your bag, like this one from Fresh, and reapply as needed throughout the day.
