It’s that time of year again! All our fave celebs have made their way to the Californian desert to party it up on the first weekend of Coachella, aka the festival where we care more about the attendees than the performers. The likes of Kylie Jenner and Olivia Buckland spent the weekend showing us how to nail our festival hair ’n’ makeup and we’re loving the inspo. From dreamy natural makeup to all-out disco-ball glitter action, there’s something for every kinda festival goer. So whether you’re going to Lovebox or Outlook, we’ve got you covered with this roundup of our fave Coachella 2018 beauty looks.
At festivals, award shows and the like, all eyes are on Queen Kylie to provide us with the next big beauty buzz. Well, this year’s no exception – she’s killed it yet again, and this time she’s done it with her ’do. Denim hair is our trend of the moment. It’s stylish, funky and super-simple to achieve. Use a mix of blue hair dyes like Colour Freedom Truly Blue and Tropical Aqua with a pasteliser to recreate that washed-out-denim look – and spice up your style for festival season.
We’re loving the simplicity of Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s makeup look. The wash of warm pink pigment over her eyes paired with bold winged eyeliner gives a glamorous yet fresh finish – just the ticket for anyone who wants a more dialled-down look. Achieve this at home with colours from Revolution Re-Loaded Palette in Newtrals 2, and get that inky black cat’s eye with e.l.f. Intense Ink Liquid Eyeliner in Blackest Black. Finish off this desert goddess makeup with an orange-toned matte lippy.
If you’re wondering where all the sparkle is, it looks like Liv has nicked it all! She’s done the glitter bugs proud with this gem-tastic, all-over-glow look, and tbh we can’t get enough of it. If you’re like us and can’t wait to recreate this at your next fest, all you need are a few face gems and a kick-ass chest piece. We love The Gypsy Shrine Face Jewel in Medusa for around the eyes and the All In One Body Gems for some between-the-boob sparkle. To give your whole body an out-of-this-world glow, finish off with Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil.

For sparkle with a little more subtlety, Serayah is showing us how it’s done. Switching out your highlighter with body glitter is an easy way to get that dose of festival fun without going all out. If you’re planning a weekend fest, all you need to do is spread a little Barry M Glitter Glue and Primer over the tops of your cheekbones and dust some Body Glitter in Fireball on top. It’s quick, easy and completely tent-proof! Finish with a nude lippy to keep the look beautifully understated.
If you’re looking for a good combo of hair and makeup, we’re loving the way Riverdale’s Vanessa Morgan has added festival-appropriate touches here and there for the perfect balance. Spice up some smoky eyeshadow with a couple of under-eye gem accents – The Gypsy Shrine Mix N Match Face Gems are perf for this. And rather than going a cray colour all over, dye a couple pieces of your hair to achieve that festival-hair vibe. If you’re loving Vanessa’s pink strands, we recommend using Colorista Washout Dirty Pink Hair Dye. It’s semi-permanent so perfect for a touch of temporary hair vibrancy.
