With the festival season in full swing, we caught up with two of our favorite festival attendees about the beauty tips they swear by. They’ve made the mistakes so we don’t have to. Here, they share their insider knowledge…

Prepare to be outdoors in the heat so use foundation sparingly. I wear zero foundation, opting for minimal concealer, trèStiQue’s Highlight Stick for a glow and statement brows with the trèStiQue Define, Sculpt & Set Brow Pencil. For my hair, I always opt for easy, natural waves. If you choose to wear foundation, I recommend a powder since you will often be hot.
If you have time for glitter and sparkles, just go for it. At Coachella this year, I was tight for time so instead, I did a fun lip that pops with braids instead.
Each day, I change my makeup and hair depending on what I’m wearing. I like things to feel a bit eclectic and personalized. If I have a really girly dress, I like to do something quirky with my hair or a fun cat eye. If I want to be super chill I gravitate towards a nude pallet. Sometimes I’ll just wear lip gloss and no eyeliner – that definitely means a chill day.
To make my makeup last all day, I like to wear a good primer. If I know I’ll be sweating a lot, I’ll wear less and bring a couple of staples with me to touch up. Powder and eyeliner are usually the must-haves. Also, a lip color for sure.

There’s nothing like a pop of color to add the finishing touch to a look, and with festival season, that is especially true. My current favorite color is trèStiQue’s Costa Rica Coral. It’s bright and fun – and perfect for festivals! To keep the color all day, I always layer balm side underneath.
When I want my eyeliner to last from day-to-night, I turn to the trèStiQue Aspen Pine Shadow Crayon. I use it as a liner rather than a shadow and love the way the green color makes my brown eyes pop.
Highlighter is a must-have. I dab it right on top of my cheekbones for a subtle (but necessary) dose of shimmer.
Since festival season means tons of pictures, I need everything super defined! My brows are naturally light, so my daily look isn’t complete without filling them in with trèStiQue’s Brow Pencil in Americano.
I’m all about bronzer, but when you’re spending all day in the sun, a powder formula can leave you looking cakey. Instead, I turn to the trèStiQue Bronzer Stick to keep me looking sun-kissed. Don’t forget to blend!
