Tis the season for feminine side braids, jean shorts and peasant tops, and leather string bracelets - it's festival time! But if you're like me, three days in the desert camping leaves you looking a little more grimy than glam. Because of this, my beauty loot is far more important on trips like these than say... well, anything else.
No time to wash your hair? No problem! RUSK Deepshine Color Care Invisible Dry Shampoo ($7, / Ulta) instantly revives hair in-between shampoos by absorbing excess oil and odor, to leave hair looking fresh and clean, while protecting and maintaining chemically-treated and natural color. Formulated with ChromAveil™, a patented UV protection technology that helps maintain chemically-colored and natural hair color longer, this dry shampoo is talc free for an invisible and flawless finish.
Nothing can kill the party mood more than a less than pleasant smell, especially if it's you! The new Dry Idea Stain Clear antiperspirant / deodorant ($3.99 / drugstores nationwide) delivers 72-hour performance that fights stains without compromising powerful sweat and odor protection. An added bonus - it rolls on completely clear ensuring no white streaks on your new cropped tee.
Chipped manicures can be a thing of the past, with KISS Nail Dress ($6.99 / Walgreens). Their indie-inspired nail art is available in stamp, 3D sticker, and tattoo forms making it easy to apply concert-side.
And last but not least, get through the weekend without burning to a crisp with the Brush On Block by Susan Posnick ($30 / SusanPosnik.com). This non-irritating, sweat and water resistant sunscreen contains a self-dispensing brush for easy brush-on application. Better still, Brush On Block features natural minerals that sit on top of skin to reflect the sun’s rays away and keep your pores clog-free.
With beauty loot taken care of, the only thing left to do is secure the perfect festival outfit and rock out in style.
