The thing is, when the music kicks in and the crowds are moving, you want to look great but not too done-up, like some out-of-place diva. Sure music festivals are all about enjoying the entire experience -- the food, the music, the people, the celebs, and the sun. But the key is doing it all and still looking good.
This week, we're zeroing in on the beauty essentials for Essence Music Festival in New Orleans -- ground zero for blazing-hot, humid, and sticky-wet weather. We've covered all the beauty basics. Whether it's the beauty products you need to keep your frizz in check or the waterproof formulas that will keep your makeup from flowing like the Mississippi River, we found the best products to help you survive in style.
Forget your studio makeup bag and stick with the basics. Beating the heat has never been so beautiful.
