7 Festival Beauty Trends You'll Probably See at Coachella This Year
In just a few short weeks, the highlight of music festival season will commence with weekend one of Coachella. Thousands will flock to Indio, California with their flower crowns in tow and temporary (or permanent!) tats in plain sight. Here, a few other beauty trends you'll likely catch as you traipse through the valley—courtesy of our favorite cool-girls with Coachella-worthy style.
Though you'll likely see a sea of braids in the crowd, few badass Coachella-goers will turn heads with colorful plaits like Rita Ora's yellow cornrows.
There's no more appropriate time to try a bold beauty move than at Coachella. So shine bright with a dusting of glitter on your skin, lips, or lids like style-setter Solange Knowles.
With temperatures climbing up into the 90s during the festival, take a cue from Vanessa Hudgens and opt to rock your natural curls or waves instead of going for a sleek blowout before hitting the desert.
Although festival season falls in the spring—peak time for wearing bright pinks and pretty glosses—edgy gals like Halsey have other plans, rocking dark, matte shades year-round. But don't expect to see wine and berry hues. We're talking dark green, blue, and gray shades like the singer's own MAC Lipstick/Halsey lipstick ($17; maccosmetics.com), pictured above.
For the past few years, temporary jewelry tattoos have been almost as essential as the entry wristband for festival guests. This year, glitzy tats will be replaced by a new wave of metallic polishes in silver, gold, and bronze, like the shimmering shade from Kylie Jenner's Sinful Colors collection, pictured above.
If there's one trend that will stand the test of time at Coachella, it's face painting. While some will opt for graphic dots and intricate masks, others will trace their lids with electric blue shadow to create cool cat-eyes like Amandla Stenberg's.
