Ah, Coachella. The sun is shining, the music is blasting, and there are flower crowns as far as the eye can see. If you do a quick Google search for this ubiquitous music festival, it’s easy to get the feeling that there’s a uniform happening; from year to year, the boho vibes tend to generate very similar fashion and beauty looks. But that doesn’t mean you have to look like everyone else to have a relevant vibe. It’s totally possible to look festival-ready without being just another free-spirited face in the crowd.
To figure out exactly how to create festival-perfect looks that feel fresh, we called in makeup artist Janessa Paré. We asked her to create three different vibes that look beautiful and are secretly super easy to recreate at home—and that’s exactly what she did. Click through the gallery to see how to use crystals as makeup, how to get an eyeliner look inspired by watercolor paintings, and how to be the kind of music witch that Rihanna would approve of.
