Coachella Survival Guide

These days, the only thing more important than the line up at Coachella is what you look like at Coachella. It’s a place where floral crowns abound, where flash tats know no limit, and where super-sheer tops and teensy denim cut-offs are not only accepted, but encouraged. But aside from the free-spirited nature that comes with festival fashion, there are a few sartorial conditions, plus hard-and-fast Coachella rules worth noting. For starters, styling yourself for Indio, Calif.’s desert climate presents a challenge—temps can reach as high as the 100s during the day, and drop to as low as 40 at night. Then, there’s a whole host of items banned from the grounds, like selfie sticks (slash narcissists), large backpacks, and blankets. Taking everything into account I pieced together the ultimate beauty survival guide, making sure to include melt-proof makeup, burn proof SPF, and self tanner that won’t make you appear “Lindsay Lohan Orange ,” of course.
