Top 12 Beauty Looks From Coachella’s Past

Coachella 2018 begins at the end of this week, and we can barely contain our excitement! To celebrate the beginning of one of the trendiest music festivals of the season, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the best beauty looks of Coachella’s past.


Coachella 2015 was the year the flash tattoo came on the festival beauty scene. Everyone from celebrities to festival goers were rocking the metallic temporary tattoos.

While Katy Perry didn’t get the flash tattoo memo, we still love her dark red lip and layered necklaces. She kept her hair very simple that year with a slicked-back ponytail during those hot desert days.

This festival goer rocked flash tattoos on both her face and body. She balanced bold statement jewelry with a minimal makeup look, allowing her metallic flash tattoos to stand out even more.


Coachella 2016 saw it’s fair share of flash tattoos as well, but many people opted for toned down makeup looks, mimicking the laid-back nature of music festivals.

Last year’s Coachella style was all about glitter and unique accessories.

This young woman made a statement by adding glitter to the roots of her half-up-half-down platinum blonde hair. She used glitter on her face and body, and her oversized sunglasses can’t cover those bold brows.

Instead of using glitter to stand out from the crowd, this woman opted for unique accessories. She used a red lipstick to match her statement earrings and kept her eyes simple with perfectly executed winged liner.

We love this woman’s eclectic makeup and nails. Her lashes are gorgeous and she used a pink eyeliner on her lower lash line, paired with a selection of gems and flower stickers. We love the lilac lip color on her and those nails are, well, fire.

Floral Braids

While we can’t see much of this festival goers makeup look, we are obsessed with her hairstyle. Braids are a staple music festival hairdo, and we love the playful addition of flowers and seashells.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the men at Coachella! We love this man’s use of glitter, and we think Coachella is the perfect place for guys to experiment with makeup.

Multicolor Braids

The gorgeous Chanel Iman looked flawless at the REVOLVE Desert House during Coachella last year. She rocked multicolor braids with metallic eyeliner and glossy nude lips. She kept her nails simple with a light gray manicure.
