A little bit of Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy goes a long way. Gorgeous color and an amazing plumping formula combine to create a one-of-a-kind lip look that comes in one petite tube. The plumper starts working immediately and lasts up to four hours—that’s a lot of sets!

The boho vibe of festival fashion lends itself to a natural and summery beauty look. So of course, Clarins Sunkissed Summer Eyeshadow Palette is a perfect fit for the outdoor concert scene. A quartet of soft brown, gold, beige and orange shades, this kit includes everything you need to create a long-lasting and laidback beauty look. Finish it off with a swipe of MAC In Extreme Dimension Waterproof Mascara for highly defined lashes than can withstand sweat or unexpected rain showers. Afraid you’ll never wash away that waterproof formula? Clinique Take the Day Off Eye Makeup Remover Stick does it on-the-go with just a few swipes.

For full coverage that’s as compact as can be, you can’t beat Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation. Slip this small tube in your handbag and touch-ups are always just a reach away. Be sure to highlight, blush and bronze your way to a natural and glowing beauty look with the ultra-slim Urban Decay Naked Flushed Face Palette. All three blend together for an effortless and flawless finish. When the last act leaves the stage, wipe it all away with NuFACE Prep-N-Glow Cloths that cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate skin so you’re ready to do it all again the next day.

Staying cool isn’t always easy at a summer fest. Our tip? Pack a mini bottle of evian Mineral Water Spray for an instant dose of hydration. Don’t worry, we can promise your makeup will stay intact. Speaking of beating the heat, if you’re worried about sweat getting the best of you, a travel size perfume spray like the addictive Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, always does the trick. And since just like a festival lineup, we always save the best for last, don’t even think about heading to the concert grounds without some SPF. Shisiedo Sun Protection Stick makes applying (and reapplying!) sunscreen easier than ever with a portable, roll-on formula that blends easily into skin.
