Keeping a freshly made-up face on under the beating sun of Coachella is a tricky feat. Those who manage to do so are truly magicians from a sweat-less planet and can probably rock a white T-shirt without fear of perspiring through it. (Who are you, and how do you do this?!)
This year's crowd went all out with metallics and nuanced takes on everyday classics.

If fortune favors the bold, these humans are wonderfully fortunate.
