5 Beauty Products That Should Be Part of Every Festival-Goer’s Arsenal

Flower crown season has officially arrived! With Coachella just around the corner, and many more summer music events on the way, it’s time to start packing. From vegan sunscreen to all the glitter-infused makeup you could possibly dream of, check out the five beauty products that should be part of every festival-goer’s arsenal.

MILK Makeup Glitter Stick

Completely vegan and made with coconut oil, MILK Makeup’s Glitter Stick will give you that perfect unicorn glow all festival season long. This highlighter offers major iridescent sparkle and is super easy to use thanks to the roll-on packaging. Swipe it across your cheeks and forehead for an on-the-go glow or layer it on top of your foundation for added drama.

Stila Glitterati Top Lip Coat

Mega sparkle is the name of the game with Stila’s Glitterati Top Lip Coat. A combination of the famed brand’s matte lip colour and its sparkle gloss, this product really is the best of both worlds. Available in hues of berry, pink, and champagne, you can expect a serious dose of shimmer from this beauty product. Be sure to store this in your festival fanny pack so you can reapply all day as needed!

Tarte Tarteguard 30 Vegan Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30

If there’s one product that’s absolutely necessary for festival-goers, it’s sunscreen. Long hours spent outdoors watching your fave bands perform back-to-back is a recipe for disaster if your skin isn’t protected from the sun’s harsh UV rays. Personally, we’re obsessed with Tarte’s Tarteguard 30 Vegan Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Not only is it vegan, hypoallergenic, and chemical free, but it’s infused with antioxidants and doesn’t leave any greasy residue. In addition to skin protection, Tarteguard 30 has moisturizing and anti-aging properties thanks to the maracuja, apple extract, and hyaluronic acid it contains. Another reason we love it is the packaging! It comes in a bright fuchsia pump bottle, meaning it will fit right in with your vibrant festival outfits.

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist


When you’re standing outside for hours under the hot sun, there’s nothing quite like a refreshing facial spray. When in need of a quick spritz, look no further than Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist. This cult product specifically targets dry, dull skin (a guaranteed byproduct of attending Coachella in the California desert). This must-have beauty product has a fragrance of neroli mixed with rose, and if you ask us, this combination ends up smelling like a day at the beach. Even better, the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist has a pretty cool back story. It was inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water, otherwise known as the first perfume in the world, which was developed in the fourteenth century for Queen Elizabeth of Hungary.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette

In the words of Rihanna, “Glitter on glitter on glitter. That’s what The Galaxy Collection is all about, no exception.” We couldn’t get through this list without including a beauty product from Fenty Beauty by Rihanna — specifically, this showstopper from its intergalactic collection. After all, it is the epitome of the unicorn/mermaid/space girl makeup trend that is especially popular at music festivals. To add some colour and sparkle to your eyes, we recommend the Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette. Not only are we obsessed with the iridescent case, but it comes with 14 shimmery shades of eyeshadow in every colour of the rainbow. Opt for a subtle glam look with one of the ivory, silver, or champagne hues, or go big and bold with pops of glittery pink, blue, and green. This is the ideal finishing touch to your beauty arsenal this festival season.
