Neon hair, bold lips, bindis, braids and flower crowns have taken center stage at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Scroll through our 10 most interesting Coachella beauty looks for a breakdown of the desert-hot and not-so-hot makeup and hair trends spotted at the celeb-flooded festival.
1. Sarah Hyland’s Bug Eyes
It looks as though the Modern Family star forgot to desert-proof her beachy waves. Real talk: it looks as if she just finished doing the walk of shame. While Sarah’s funky gold-studded and bead-embellished headband are totally Coachella-esque, those face jewels need to go back to the kindergarten crafts set they came from … pronto!
2. Chloe Nørgaard’s Rainbow Hair
As far as we’re concerned, it looks as if the 22-year-old American model/DJ dipped her head in a few Easter egg color dyes. Still, nothing says Coachella-ready quite like Chloe’s “My Little Pony” mane of intense neon rainbow hair. If anything, her look is the epitome of Coachella. We give it two thumbs up!
3. Kylie Jenner’s Soft Glam
The youngest Jenner sister ditched her usual bold winged eyeliner, opted for some soft glam — long lashes, bronzed cheek bones and a nude-pink lip — and let her black flower crown and stacked Goldbarr chunky statement necklace do all of the talking. It looks as though she’s stolen big sis Kim’s makeup artist and accessorizing tips!
4. Kate Nash’s Pearls
Are those pimples or pearls scattered on Kate’s face? We’re pretty sure the decorative facial pearls could pass as huge whiteheads, but the English indie pop star’s neon pink bob and matching pink pout perfectly complement her smoked-out glitter makeup.
5. Vanessa Hudgens’ Classy Coachella
Vanessa nailed the music festival ensemble with class, proving that she’s definitely graduated from her role on High School Musical. The 25-year-old Disney starlet’s sultry eyes and pop of pink are a perfect example of a desert-hot Coachella beauty look, and her bindi-adorned forehead and dramatic accessories take it to the next level! We’re equally obsessed with those luscious ombré tresses.
6. Alessandra Ambrosio’s Nail Wraps
We’re dying to get our hands on Alessandra’s iconic Coachella desert palm tree and ferris wheel nails, part of NCLA Los Angeles’ “What Filter Should I Use?” nail wraps. She isn’t even flaunting her famous supermodel hot bod, yet she’s blown away the comptition by rocking playful nail art. The funky nails exude the #foreveronvacation hashtag she’s been attaching to her recent Coachella snaps on Instagram. God, she’s good.
7. Kendall Jenner’s Beauty Snoozefest
Unlike her sis, Kendall’s Coachella beauty look was a total snoozefest, as she chose bare lips and a BB cream with just enough coverage. Her floral printed head scarf amps up her romantic low bun with stray hairs, but the only thing missing is a manual on how to handle the huge nose ring aka. safety hazard hanging from her nose!
8. Kate Bosworth’s Barely There Makeup
Married life is looking bangin’ on Kate. Her barely there glam is effortless yet stunning and shows that you don’t need to dye your hair every color of the rainbow to leave a lasting impression at Coachella. Bold lip, boho sun-kissed hair and dewy, vibrant skin — this newlywed has natural beauty down to a science and makes us want to triple our monthly facial appointments.
9. Cassie’s Cool Braids
The “Me & U” singer donned a sports jersey mini that is way off for the hippie crowd at Coachella, but we have to say that her lipgloss is poppin’ and so are her long blonde braids! Maybe she’ll get it right next year?
10. Rita Ora’s Subtle Rainbow Hues
Even though it looks as if someone rubbed a balloon on Rita’s head, we’re huge fans of the British pop star’s multisized braids. The subtle rainbow hues running through her braid-tail offset her bold red lip and winged eyeliner — perfect for a low-voltage Coachella vogue.
