Must have items for a Coachella checklist

by | May 19, 2019 | Events, Travel

Serious festival vibes coming at you. Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival is known for hosting the hottest musical acts in the world, but the fashion and festival shenanigans are entertainment in their own right. Before you pack your bags to Indio, California here are a few things that are sure to make the experience hit a high note.

Splat Iridescent Halo Spray
(; $9.99)

Splat Iridescent Halo Spray is an ‘out of this world’ sparkle, shimmer, and shine that guarantees eye-catchy results! Micro glitters attach to your hair weightlessly, reflecting and refracting light while adding a tint of color to amp up your style. The Splat Iridescent Halo Spray is available in four shimmery colors: Cosmic Pink, Solar Yellow, Stellar Blue, and Galaxy Purple.

Sunnies and Stunna Shades

I LOVE any opportunity to wear funky shades and Coachella is that moment. Top Shop, Le Specs and Quay are hot brands right now and I can’t get enough!

Goody Classics Fabric Headband
(; $9.31)

Rainbow Colored Thin Headbands to tame unruly bangs, layers or flyaways. These headbands are wrapped in fabric for all day comfortable wear. They come in an assortment of colors to match all your favorite outfits. I like how there are versitle ways to wear a headband. Wrapping the hair around the headband can take a Coachella look from day to night while keeping up with the weather.

Stila Shade Mystère Liquid Eye Shadow

Simply marvelous! Each shade has a unique combination of color-flip pigments, pearls and shimmer particles to maximize the high-impact, color-changing, sparkle effect. A lightweight feel, non-transfer, pigment-packed color, shimmery laydown and skin-loving ingredients make this formula a dazzling delight. A few of the shades appear more in your face glittery and a couple have surprisingly subtle shimmers. I’m really into the subtle shimmer right now as its just a hint of glam without trying to hard. The fact that they come in colors such as “Kitten” and “Charmed” makes that that much more fabulous.

C’est Moi Visionary Makeup Crayons
(, $7.99 each)

Channel your inner visionary, while infusing your look with a vibrant pop of color. Create a statement eye or a unique design anywhere on your face with a wide range of versatile shades. Rose, tangerine, chocolate and leaf. Infuse the festival look with a pop of color with only a couple of strokes. These are a one and done makeup accessory. The crayon can be eye liner or full shadow or fun designs on the cheek. Stick on in your fanny pack or even pocket for touch ups during the day. Having a practical purpose for after the festival as every day wear, makes these a must have makeup item on the packing list.

Sol de Janeiro GLOWMOTIONS 
($35 each,

In Brazil, glowing skin is a year-round obsession. GLOWMOTIONS is an illuminating, skin-smoothing collection to wrap the body with a gorgeous range of glow shades and glow effects for every mood.
Goldie Rocks, Master Flash, Samba Sway are a few of the shades that add a little sparkle to a festival look. Besides the shades of glow these oils do not transfer. That means that after applying the flashy glow it only sticks to the skins its on. You won’t be that person who is getting everyone on them slicked up with glitter oil. It will just be you out in the crowd rocking a little extra shimmer.

The Better Skin Co Super Shield Serum
