Bella Thorne's Coachella Beauty Strategy and the One Festival Trend She Just Can’t Get Behind
The first rule of Coachella beauty trends? There are no rules! From unicorn-hued hair to intricate braids, anything in line with the boho-chic aesthetic is sure to fit right in on the festival grounds, and as a fourth-year veteran to the festivities, Bella Thorne plans to take an extra effortless approach.
"I go pretty low-maintenance. Once I'm already in Coachella and the photo has been taken, I kind of don't care what I look like, and neither does anyone else, I'm sure," she told InStyle at the Birchbox lounge. "I don't really worry about things like, oh I need to touch up my lip gloss---we're raging, okay! We're not worried about what we look like!"
Of course, that doesn't mean her favorite beauty staples won't be stashed in her handbag for any mid-concert needs. The star plans to keep the Neutrogena Color Stick in Very Berry ($9; neutrogena.com), a Neutrogena SPF ($11; neutrogena.com), and Evian water spray ($14 for two; sephora.com) on hand just in case she happens to go a little too hard dancing to Yellow Claw, AC/DC, or The Weekend.
As for festival trends, don't expect to see the star in a braided updo this year. In the eternal debate over flower crowns versus crown braids, Thorne actually found the latter style to be more fussy mid-mosh. "I like flower crowns better, because I wore a braid yesterday, and was trying to get down, and I couldn't because of it! We were literally in one of the tents watching Flying Lotus, and I was trying to fix my braid half the time," she says. "I started undoing it, and my friend asked me, 'What are you doing?' I was just like, 'Trying to take out my braid, because I can't rage like this.'" Looks like she has her priorities straight!
