Beauty Brite Disclosure

Festival season is here. From music to food, to art and everything in-between, festival goers are lining up to experience all the sights and sounds the season has to offer. They’re also shopping for that perfect festival look. Even though I don’t always get some of their choices, I do admire their tenacity.

When it comes to festival fashion, most people let their freak flag fly. Whether you’re going to Bonnaroo or Taste of Chicago, being festival chic is essential. To help make that happen, I’m sharing some top tips for looking and feeling festival ready. Because no one wants to make the “Fashion Don’t” List or any other festival “Don’t” list for that matter.

Korres YOGHURT Nourishing Fluid Veil Face Sunscreen SPF 30

It probably goes without saying, but you can’t spend so much time in the sun without protecting your skin. Sunscreen is a must for any savvy festival attendee. As a super pale girl, my sunscreen requirements are simple, give me an SPF that works and won’t irritate my skin. One of my new favorite sunscreens for the face is the Korres YOGHURT Nourishing Fluid Veil Face Sunscreen SPF 30.

It’s ultra-sheer, natural formula, which contains yogurt, as well as rice and camapu extract, helps to nourishes my skin, while also providing broad spectrum UV protection. I really like how moisturizing it feels on my face and how well it pairs with makeup. Because the Nourishing Fluid Veil Face Sunscreen contains Provitamin B5, it also helps to reduce any redness or inflammation I might have going on. It’s also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and isn’t tested on animals.

Lavanila Sport Luxe Deodorant

Another must have on hot festival days and nights is deodorant. For me, this means natural deodorant. I’ve been wearing natural deodorant for several years now. I’ve tried quite a few. Some worked great, others not so much. If you’re familiar with paraben and aluminum free deodorant, that also happens to be cruelty-free, then no doubt you know Lavanila.

With its proprietary SmartSport Technology, their 2016 Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner for Best Deodorant, Lavanila Sport Luxe, was designed to keep sweat and odor at bay. It’s also clinically tested, dermatologist recommended, vegan, free from harsh chemicals, and has a nice fresh scent. As you can see there’s a lot to like about SportLuxe.  Plus, you can buy it in a handy mini size, which makes it great for travel and carrying in your festival bag.

Cuvee Champagne Spray

Now that don’t have to worry about a sunburn or being the stinky kid, it’s time to move on to hair. It isn’t always easy to keep your hair looking it’s best when it’s hot and humid out. How about adding a little champagne to the mix with Cuvee Champagne Spray?

Yes, you read the sentence correctly. This lightweight texturizing spray that uses champagne and wine extract to help you create the perfect tousled, “I woke up this way” hair. As an added perk, the Cuvee Champagne Spray also conditions hair and provides antioxidant protection. It’s cruelty, sulfate, phthalate, and paraben-free, and safe for color or chemically treated hair. What I like best about this heavenly spray, it gives my hair amazing volume without making my hair feel crunchy or weighed down.

Hairdo French Braid Band

What do you do when you want great festival hair, but your way too hot? Add an on-trend headband. I’m not talking about just any headband, I’m referring to the magnifique Hairdo French Braid Headband. Available in eight colors to match your hair, this fun twist on a headband is quick and easy to use. It’s the perfect accessory for straight and sleek or boho wavy hair all festival long.

    Sunscreen is something I wear on a daily basis almost. Living in Florida we are hot almost year round so it is super important!

  5. Yogurt sunscreen? I’m so curious! I’m always on the hunt for good face sunscreen. And champagne spray? That sounds fabulous!

  6. Nice products! A lot I haven’t heard of before! The headband is cute and unique. I want to try the spray.

  7. I need to get one of those hairbands! It looks so natural; I can’t believe I had not heard of them before!

    I’m loving that champagne spray! Anything that has wine or champagne sounds like a good idea to me haha 🙂

  9. This is a great post – it is so easy to forget about sun protection during the early months of weather transition like this. What a great reminder and what a good-looking product.

  10. Champagne and Wine spray! Now that is interesting, I would totally try that. I have just started looking into natural deodorants. Definitely have to give this brand a try.

  13. Brilliant tips – I can NEVER feel fresh when I’m going to a festival, hopefully some of these will help me haha x

  14. Living in Florida, I wear sunscreen daily, no matter what season it is. I have fair skin, with freckles and protect it the best I can.

  15. Elizabeth O. says

    Sometimes we’re so concerned with our look that we forget about these important stuff too. It’s really a must to make sure that you have sunscreen with you all the time.

  16. Sunscreen is so important and I always remember to make sure my kids have it plastered on them but I always forget myself!

  17. evakidminds says

    I love to use products that are vegan and free from harsh chemicals. It became so much easier to find out all the information about products.

  18. What seriously great tips! I have that braided headband and I love it! The older I’ve gotten, the more important sunscreen has become. I always have an awful time finding face sunscreen that doesn’t make my skin itch. Can’t wait to give these products a try 🙂

  19. I would definitely need to make sure I had enough water and sunscreen! I can imagine it gets super hot!

  20. If for no other reason than the UV protection, this would be a wonderful product. Anything that can help my skin I am all about.

  21. thefashionableaccountant says

    I love lavanilla deodorant! I used it in the lavender scent and it was great!! I always wear sunscreen as well. These are some great products to use if going to a festival.

  22. I know and have been using aluminum-free deodorant but I haven’t known Lavanila. Well, I would love to have it. Actually, the current product I’m works for me but not for my husband. Since rashes developed on him, he stopped using deodorant. But I guess, with this product, he can start using again, especially Summer is approaching and a deo is a must have. I also wanna try this one.

  23. Ooh I love that braided headband! It’s so cute! You could do so many things with it too!

  24. I loves Korres, but I have never tried their sunscreen before. I’ll definitely have to check it out sometime, though!

  25. Love this post! That headband is adorable, I need it! and yes, sunscreen is a must!!

  26. The champagne hair spray sounds intertesting! Certainly peaks my interest to try it out. Thanks for sharing.

  27. I really suck at doing braids but love those bands! Great way to get the look I want! Definitely have to check all these out!

  28. I am not good at braids, I usually love ask my mother to do mine. I love the look though.

  29. I really like the hair braid!
