L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Micro Hyaluronic Acid + Ceramides Line-Plumping Water Cream

While you may be tempted to skip out on skin care during the summer months because your skin no longer feels dry, not using moisturizer can cause your skin to produce more oils to combat the lack of moisture. Instead, use this lightweight moisturizer that’s infused with hyaluronic acid to gently hydrate and repair the skin barrier. The silky, gel finish never feels sticky, greasy or heavy and it layers well under makeup. 

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Invisible UV Fluid

It’s very easy to succumb to a sunburn during festival weekend, (after all, you’re under the summer sun during peak hours), but for the sake of your skin and your health, you don’t want to be that person. Protect your skin with this lightweight sunscreen that includes SPF 50 and UVA and UVB filters to protect against the sun’s rays that contribute to burning and aging. 

The non-greasy finish melts into the skin to avoid a chalky white cast on all skin tones. Do yourself a favor and sport a trendy sun hat throughout the weekend to double up on sun protection.

L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Matte Setter

The secret MVPs of a festival weekend are going to be your makeup primer and a comfortable pair of shoes. Comfy shoes are self-explanatory, but the makeup primer is what is going to allow you to dance your heart out without worrying about your makeup melting and smudging away. This particular primer minimizes excess shine and manages oils while boosting your makeup wear for up to 24 hours. A matte primer is a solid choice for a hot, festival weekend but if oily skin isn't a concern of yours, try the redness eraser, pore minimizer or dullness reducer from the Prime Lab line. 


L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Foundation in a Powder 

If your makeup stands any chance of lasting during a sweltering festival weekend, the foundation you choose is very important because it’s going to impact how long the rest of your makeup lasts. This powder foundation is just the type of complexion product we would gravitate towards because it lasts for up to 24 hours with sweatproof, waterproof, heatproof and transfer-resistant wear. 

It also has a matte finish with a light blurring effect that melts into the skin to deliver flawless, natural-looking coverage for all skin types. While liquid foundation isn’t something you can typically touch-up on the go, this powder foundation comes in a petite compact with a sponge (and mirror) so you can toss it in your purse for touch-ups all weekend long.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Blush

Blush is one of the hottest makeup products at the moment, so it’s not something you’ll want to skip for a festival makeup look when trends are very much running the show. This lightweight powder feels weightless on the skin and provides a vivid pop of rosy color with a finish that resists transfer, water, heat and sweat. It’s a great way to brighten up your complexion, and you can use it on the lids as a long-wearing, colorful eyeshadow. 

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Bronzer 

Bronzed skin is a delicious complement to any makeup look, especially your festival weekend glam. Following along with the theme of sweatproof and long-wearing, this bronzing powder includes the same waterproof, sweatproof and transfer-proof formula as the aforementioned powder foundation and blush. It comes in eight shades with neutral undertones so orange skin is the last thing you have to worry about. 

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer up to 24H Full Coverage 

Concealer is there to brighten the skin and add more skin coverage where needed. Festival weekend isn’t the time to catch up on your beauty sleep, so you’re going to need a good concealer that can hide a lack of rest and the dark circles that accompany it. This full-coverage formula has a soft matte finish that lasts for up to 24 hours. Reach for a shade that matches your skin tone for more coverage, go two shades lighter to highlight, or go two shades deeper to contour. 


L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Instant Lift Waterproof Mascara 

Waterproof mascara for a music festival is a solid choice given the hot temperatures, sweating and smudging that you and your makeup are subject to — the last thing you want is mascara-smudged lids and under-eyes. This TikTok-viral formula has a long-wearing, waterproof finish that’s made to lift and lengthen the lashes. It’s all thanks to the innovative wand that coats the lashes, adding length and volume while the double-hook bristles separates so there are no clumps.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel Eyeliner 

On to the subject of good smudging — smudged eyeliner — which is very appropriate for a festival, can be achieved with this silky gel liner that includes a built-in smudger for the exact intention of creating dramatic eye looks. The best part about it is the waterproof, transfer-proof formula that stays put for up to 36 hours.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof Eyeliner 

Graphic eyeliner shines during a festival weekend and this long-wearing liquid eyeliner is a must for your festival makeup bag. With a waterproof, transfer-resistant finish that lasts for 30 hours, it stays put until you decide it’s time to wash it off. The precise felt tip works for intricate, graphic eyeliner looks or timeless and sharp feline flicks. 

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Intense Volume Matte Lipstick 

Matte lipstick is the best choice when you’re in search of a long-wearing lippie because it typically lasts longer than anything satin or glossy. While you may associate matte lipstick with feeling dry, this one isn’t. Thanks to a hyaluronic acid-infused formula, it provides highly-pigmented, velvety color without that dreaded dry, crackly feeling. Plus, it wears for up to 16 hours with no smudging or feathering. 

L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray - Unscented

Now that you have knowledge of all the products to keep your skin and makeup in top shape throughout the weekend, you can’t forget about your hair. Whether you choose to wear your hair down in loose, boho waves or up in a ‘90s-style updo, hairspray is a must to set your style and protect against humidity. 

Elnett hairspray is a great choice because it provides an extra strong hold without making your hair feel sticky or crunchy. At the end of the day, just brush through your style and the flexible hold mist will absorb into the hair.
