Coachella Weekend 1 is finally here. With festival season in full swing, that means a lot of us are shopping. If you are not sure how to prepare for the weekend, let Olivia Culpo be your guide. She says, "Along with all your essentials for a festival weekend, you have to make sure, first and foremost, that you're hydrated enough to enjoy yourself."
That's why Olivia partnered with evian to debut Club Hydration at TAO Desert Nights on April 14th. Olivia said, "My first stop will be at evian's Club Hydration, which I'm super excited about. One of my rules for festival season is to make sure you are drinking water. If you are drinking alcohol, make sure you have water or sparkling water throughout the day so you don't ruin the next day. It's all about the long game with festival weekend."
Olivia warned, "You don't want to burn out on the first night." In an exclusive E! interview, The Culpo Sisters star shared more tips for making the most of festival season and her favorite beauty hacks.
E!: Tell me more about evian's Club Hydration.
OC: We're celebrating hydration, specifically sparkling water. I plan on bringing my sisters with me. They'll be there in tow with my entire festival season crew. We'll just be hydrating and getting a head start on the desert weekend. We're working on hydration first, partying second.
When people ask me about my biggest beauty secret, it's truly drinking water. Stay hydrated and get lots of sleep. If you're not doing those two things, you can get any procedure or injectable done, but it's not going to work as well. You just need to sleep and drink water.
Olivia Culpo's Sweat-Proof Beauty Hacks
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray
"I have so many secrets for you. First of all, the Charlotte Tilbury makeup setting spray is amazing. Your face will not move. I put it on before I put on my foundation I put it on during. I put it on before I put on bronzer. I put it on afterwards. I even take it with me because it's really hydrating. It really solidifies makeup so it will not move."
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder
"My second trick is carrying a powder with you wherever you go. I use the Charlotte Tilbury face powder and bring it with me."
Olivia's recommendation has 501.4K+ Sephora Loves and it comes in four shades.
Supergoop! (Re)setting 100% Mineral Powder Sunscreen SPF 35 PA+++
"Supergoop has a powder sunscreen, which is great if you worry about your skin getting oily, but you're also protecting your skin at the same time. I love that it's a two for one product. I use it after I put on all my makeup and reapply throughout the day just to make sure I am protecting my skin."
"I put on my Tula sunscreen and then I'll just use the powder over makeup because the powder has a pigment. There are a bunch of different shades and it works well as a setting powder."
Olivia Culpo's Tips for Glowing Skin
Tula Protect + Glow Daily Sunscreen Gel Broad Spectrum SPF 30
"This Tula sunscreen is my favorite. I'm going to be honest with you about my picks. This is my absolute favorite. I love it. It has this really cool, emollient texture. I love every part of it. It's 100% the only sunscreen that doesn't make me break out. It blends really really well. It reminds me of the MAC Strobe Cream, but it's a sunscreen."
This sunscreen has 9.7K+ Sephora Loves and 2,300+ 5-star Ulta reviews. The Bachelor's Rachael Kirkconnell recommended this too.
Supergoop! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++ with Hyaluronic Acid + Niacinamide
"If you love a glow, you can do the Glowscreen from Supergoop. It has a nice sheen and a little pigment to it. I use that when I'm not using the Tula."
