If you're going to Coachella this weekend, then you probably have your bags packed with all the mandatory festival gear: Cut-off denim shorts, something with fringe on it, a plethora of giant sunglasses, and a skimpy bikini top. But—did you remember your face paint? SheFinds recently stumbled across Free People's festival face and body paint, which come in every color imaginable and retail for $12 a pop.

The product page on the Free People website explains that face and body paint is the "must-have finishing touch for your music festival look." Hopefully, you won't be too inebriated to follow the application instructions, which include lightly misting the paint with water and applying it with a flat brush or sponge. Remove it with soap and water, or the $12 Corona you bought from the beer stand.
