Wholesome, Durable Makeup Kits for Coachella in One, Easy Snap.

By Laura Medina

What a relief that Coachella is literally next door to upscale, sedated Palm Springs where they have a Sephora to meet all your sun-protection and damaged needs and wants.  You want your sun care to look good too.

If you're one of the thousands ticket holders, Sephora's Coachella pop-up shop is back for the second year in a row, on the actual concert/festival grounds to care, style, pamper, or at least, clean up ticket holders.  For your information, you need the ticketed, activated wristbands to actually enjoy Sephora's Coachella pop-up shop because it's behind the security fences and on the actually festival grounds.

For those too busy party-ing and socializing and kicking back at the festival's way more exclusive off-site, hidden parties, there is a Sephora in Palm Springs.

For this scribe, there is a makeup brand that is no more appropriate for the hippy-wanna-bes than Tarte Cosmetics.

If Marsala is the color of the year, then bold magneta and lilac are the colors of this year's Spring.

Tarte's new Poppy Picnic Collection fits Coachella needs and wants.  For a line built on nutritious antioxidant clay that is tough enough to stand up to the heat and the sweat, Tarte's Poppy Picnic limited-edition Amazonian clay eye & cheek palette has all your color cosmetics in one easy kit.  The "pinch-your-cheeks" pink motif is a flush of color in: a golden peachy pink shade for the perfect, everyday glow with eye shadows in:

summer breeze (cream shadow)
• sweet tea (tan shadow)
• ice cream cone (chocolate shadow)
• barefoot in the grass (nude shadow)
• peach poppy (peach shadow)
• picnic basket (brown)

Sun burn and sun protection are the on utmost concern for party-ing in the desert.

Again, sun burn and sun protection are the utmost concern for party-ing in the desert, Tarteguard 30 sunscreen lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30 fits the bill.

Tarte’s first multi-tasking, antioxidant-infused daily sunscreen. The lightweight, non-sticky liquid lotion contains all mineral, non-chemical sunscreen ingredients to help protect against the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays that can cause dryness, redness, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, among other skincare beauty boundaries. Recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation for daily use, the skinvigorating™ formula is also infused with maracuja, red algae, soybean, apple and honeysuckle extracts to nourish, tone and retain moisture while helping to combat signs of aging for a firmer, brighter, smoother appearance. The fresh, ocean’s lily scent allows for luxurious, spa-like daily applications while the high-performance liquid emulsion seamlessly melts into skin, leaving it supremely soft and silky, without ever leaving a white cast.

Tarte also has the most coveted item for Spring/Summer, it's rare limited-edition,  Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette.

This is Tarte's only item that is directly inspired by Los Angeles' unique Hollywood glitz and glam and the California desert color palette, making it appropriate for Coachella.

6 x 0.04 oz Amazonian clay eyeshadows in Showstopper Copper (bronze copper), Go for the Gold (gold), You’re a Natural (nude), Steel the Scene (steel taupe), Rose to the Top (rose gold) and Dim the Lights (black brown)
- 0.21 oz Amazonian clay blush in Fame (warm peach)
- 0.14 oz Amazonian clay matte waterproof bronzer in Park Ave Princess™
- 0.14 oz Amazonian clay highlighter in Champagne Pink
- Step-by-step guide 

With these kits, all you have to do is toss them in your tote and you're revving to go.
