Get Coachella Ready!

It’s that time of year again- COACHELLA! I am heading out in a few weeks and getting my bags packed early. Every year I learn new things that I need to make my Coachella wardrobe that much better. This year I am going for a chic boho vibe, with muted colors and lots of turquoise for my accent color.

I am so excited for the festival this year- not just because of my outfits. The line up is amazing and all of the pool parties are going to be so fun. If you were lucky to get your hands on tickets this year, I am sure you are just as excited as me. What is everyone wearing? What is your staple piece for Coachella?

Top Beauty Buys

 

PERFUME: I love having a few different perfume options on hand. Mix up the types of smells i.e. floral, citrus, woody. Love Jo Malone because you can wear several at once. LE LABO / BYREDO GIORGIO ARMANI / JO MALONE       

POLISH: I am always one for a neutral nail. Makes it easy to match with anything and always looks good with gold and silver jewelry. FORMULA X / COVERGIRL / ESSIE DEBORAH LIPPMANN             

CONCEALER: Finding a concealer that is also a brightener is like winning the lottery. LOVE this YSL concealer- goes on smooth and doesn’t crease. YVES SAINT LAURENT / STILA / NO 7  /  SEPHORA                                                                                                    

LINER: A good liquid eyeliner goes a long way. I try to stay away from anything too shiny- matte is the secret. NARS / MARC JACOBS / BOBBI BROWN / COVERGIRL       

MASCARA: You want a mascara that works with your lashes. Always stay away from anything that makes your lashes look clumpy and messy. SEPHORA / CLINIQUE / COVERGIRL / BOBBI BROWN             

LIPSTICK: That perfect pink lipstick is something to covet. Once you find your perfect shade, buy 4 of them! DOLCE&GABBANA / NARS / E.L.F / MAKE UP FOREVER

All About the Bags

springbags

BAGS BAGS BAGS! I will admit, I have a slight obsession with bags. Anything from a clutch to a big weekender- I love them all! Right now I am totally in love with over the top statement bags. All of these bags are great pieces that will really stand out. Wear them with a simple black outfit or go all out and mix your patterns!

Another way to take a plain bag and make it a statement bad is to add some accessories. Whether you are putting on leather stickers (SOOO in love) or tying on a scarf, throwing a little something extra on your bag will really make it a unique stand out piece. I am all for adding several different accessories that pair well together to really push your bag to a new level of chic. What are your favorite ways to amp up the look of your bags?
