This is the priming spray Solange uses to keep her makeup looking flawless when it’s hot AF

It’ll be nearly 365 days until Coachella season strikes again but that doesn’t mean we’re over our fave festival. We’re still bookmarking hair inspo, summer style, and of course drooling over Rihanna’s crystal Gucci look.

Riri wasn’t the only one slaying in Indio. Our girl Solange and her newly auburn tresses owned Coachella with her signature cool-girl style and flawless makeup. Solange’s makeup artist broke down her 112 degree-proof makeup to The Cutand we’re taking notes.

For the festival, MUA Dana Delaney passed on foundation. After cleansing with Bioderma Sensibio water cleanser ($11.90), Dana applied Bioderma Hydrabio Serum ($24.90) around Solange’s face, using a Givenchy Mister Mat mattifying gel ($38) in the center of her face. Instead of using a  heavy moisturizer, Dana added moisture with Urban Decay’s B6 Prep and Priming Spray, ($31.)

We had no idea this spray was such a powerhouse. According to Urban Decay’s site, the spray, “preps, primes, and balances the complexion while evening out skin tone, absorbing oil, and reducing shine.” Oh it gets better, Urban Decay B6 has the first stabilized form of B6, vitamin E, and willow bark to exfoliate. Fancyyy.

A little Glossier Stretch Concealer ($18), NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base ($26), individual lashes, and By Terry’s Glow-Expert Duo Stick in Amber Light ($48) completed the look.

Dana put it best when she told The Cut,

"There’s really nothing you can do to control sweat, but you can mask shine."

We won’t be spending our summer worrying about a little sweat.


We’d much rather be dancing in a canyon wearing only the finest gold fringe.
