Hey Bag Lady!
As you dash from daytime panels to nighttime concerts, keep it clear, secure, and stylish with the festival’s clear bag policy. Opt for these fashionable clear crossbody bags and stylish clutches from Amazon, ensuring you breeze through security and strut in style.

Hair & Skincare Regimen
NOLA’s humidity is no joke, especially when you’re dropping it low to “Back That Thang Up” or swaying to “Any Time, Any Place.” Keep your skin hydrated and your curls popping with hydrating facial mist and anti-frizz hair products. Don’t let the heat dull your shine, girl!

Keep it Simple – When Your Feet Hurt, Everything Hurts
Whether you’re exploring the French Quarter or grooving at the Superdome, comfort doesn’t mean compromising on style. Rock the scene with these chic block heels for that extra lift, or keep it cool and comfy with these ever-trendy espadrilles, perfect for any outfit.

Stay Cool & Fashionable
Embrace the Essence Fest vibe with breathable chic! Float through the festival in these airy linen dresses or these casual-chic maxi skirts. And remember, a light wrap can be a lifesaver against the fierce A/C indoors.

Makeup That Stays Put
Look flawless while Charlie Wilson serenades the crowd with “There Goes My Baby.” Start with a solid base using smudge-proof primer, layer on some long-lasting foundation, and set it with Urban Decay’s All Nighter spray. Shine on, diva, your makeup is not going anywhere!

So, there you have it! Packed with essentials to keep you looking and feeling cool, you’re all set for a magical time at the Essence Festival. Get ready to enjoy the music, the food, and of course, the unique charm of New Orleans with your favorite divas by your side.
