How to Pack the Ultimate Coachella Beauty Survival Kit
Stash these products in your backpack to ensure you look flawless on Instagram this weekend.
This year at Coachella, we’re expecting to see Mansur Gavriel backpacks in lieu of last year’s fanny pack, which means extra space for the must-have beauty elixirs, hydrators and hues you’ll need to survive the dry desert heat.
