Festival season is finally here, and it’s more exciting than ever. With Coachella just days away, everyone is talking about the lineup, the mystery of Cardi B’s attendance, and who will be seen wearing what at one of the biggest festivals of the year. It’s time to stress out about your outfit, your hair, and your plans for the day- but the one thing you don’t need to stress about is your makeup! Here are a few tips on how to achieve a Coachella-worthy look.
- Stock up on bling
The one thing you’re guaranteed to see everyone wearing this Coachelling- is bling, whether it be adhesive rhinestones, glitter, or stickers. If you like rhinestones, line them across your brows to accentuate their shape, or on the forehead. If you want to try out glitter, you can place it on all of the points of your face on which you would normally apply highlighter. As for stickers, you can put them anywhere, but cheekbones and temples are your best bet. Try out this glitter and adhesive pack from the Sephora Collection to give your Coachella look some sparkle.
- Bold, lined eyes
When it comes to your eyes, you really want to accentuate them and make them look big. To start, line them with the Tarte Cosmetics Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liquid Eyeliner. This liner is easy to apply and will last you all throughout your hot, sweat-filled day. After this, apply your favorite mascara, but try to lean towards waterproof mascaras, so your mascara doesn’t start running halfway through your favorite artist’s final song.
- Sharp brows
Vanessa’s Coachella look relies heavily on her perfectly angled brows. The best way to achieve her perfect brows is by following three steps- line, fill, conceal. First use the dark shade from the Becca Cosmetics Contour Mousse to shape, and fill in your brow. Once you’ve done this, use the lighter shade to conceal all around the brow in order to accentuate its shape. If you have a brow gel you like, you can also brush that through your brows on top of the mousse.
- Flawless complexion
After your brows, eyes, and bling are taken care of, the last part you need to tie your whole look together is a glowing, flawless face. Make sure you’re well moisturized, because the heat can really dry out your skin. First, apply a lightweight foundation, like the Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation. If you have a heavier foundation you like to use, you can mix it with a moisturizer to make it a little lighter. Make sure it’s well blended. Add a pop of highlight to the high points of your face, and you’re ready to party at Coachella!
