Well, ladies, it looks like it’s Coachella time yet again. This coming weekend marks the first of two weekends full of music, desert heat and earthy fashion. So, how does one go from day to night while still looking fresh and fabulous? Makeup is minimal and hair and clothing should be breathable. Let’s take a look back at Coachella’s past for beauty and fashion inspiration and some must have products for creating this festival look.

Opt for a wide-brimmed hat like Vanessa Hudgens and Emma Roberts to keep unruly hair under wraps. Plus, it doubles as the perfect antidote to the intense desert sun. Try: Mar Y Sol Andia Wide Brimmed Floppy Hat.


A lip stain will give you the natural color you are after, without rubbing off on beer, boys or sweaty lip syncing. Try: By Terry Aqualip Jelly Tint (they call it a “tattoo finish” if you know what I mean…).

Take a cue from Drew Barrymore and Rachel Bilson and give skin a flawless finish. Try a BB Cream – it offers coverage, sun protection, and decreases oil secretion. Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Smart Gell BB has spf 50 and gives great coverage.


Music festivals are the ideal place to sport your oversized sunnies. And if past Coachella’s are any indication, Ray-Ban seems to have your eyes covered. Try the Original Polarized Aviator Sunglasses worn here by Kate Bosworth and boyfriend, director Michael Polish.


Diane Kruger does the side braid… and so should you. Great way to keep hair off your face (and neck) for the daylight hours, then, come evening, take out the braid, spritz in some beach spray, and you’ve got yourself the perfect bed head party hair. Try: Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Reactivating Mist.


Arm candy is key. Festival girls always seem to rock something hippy. An easy way to inject festival into your outfit is to add beads to your arms like Alessandra Ambrossio and Ashley Greene. Michael Kors Leather Beaded Bracelet will give you the hippy look with a bit of haute couture. Stack the bracelets – and colors – for ultimate hippy-chicness.

And remember, SPF saves skin – so slather on continuously throughout the day!
