The Coachella countdown has officially begun—with almost a week to a go, our packing/planning situation has been kicked into super-high gear. Our snack game is super strong, and our outfit organization is nearly in check (how many of these mandala-print leggings do you think we can cram into our carry-on?). We're also stocking up on Makeup Erasers—we recently discovered this purely genius beauty innovation, which has us ultra-confident that we can pull off multiple festival beauty looks without sacrificing our skin.
The worst part of toting along various beauty paraphenalia is that most of it tends to be liquid. TSA rules nonwithstanding, it sucks to be constantly concerned that your oil cleanser is going to leak all over your suitcase. The fact that the Makeup Eraser, which is a super-simple polyester face cloth, removes all traces of makeup (including waterproof mascara and long-wearing lipstick) with nothing but water is, quite simply, revolutionary. We first came upon it while stocking up the beauty category for The Wanderlust, our subscription box, and quickly became converts. In addition to eliminating the need for cleanser or makeup remover, which is eco-friendly enough, using this handy cloth has also eliminated the need for any disposable wipes, which we'd occasionally need to tap for particularly stubborn racoon eyes. So not only are we feeling pretty pleased on how clean our skin is, we're also patting ourselves on the back for finding a green beauty solution that we didn't even know we needed.
Onto that festival beauty plan—with a Makeup Eraser on hand, these face stamps, this Rainbow Brite-inspired look, and all the face glitter in the world are on the agenda. Have any other ideas? We'd love to hear them!
