Found: The 12 Best Music Festival Makeup Looks for 2018

Coachella is kind of like Halloween or New Year's Eve. Weird comparison, I know, but bear with me. You see, each year, it comes around in April and presents us with another opportunity to broaden our makeup horizons, to play with color and texture, and most importantly, to break out of our day-to-day beauty routine. Just like the edgy characterized makeup of Halloween or the ample glitter eye shadow of New Year's Eve, it offers us a chance to do something outside of the status quo. Consequently, we don't want to squander this music festival opportunity with our everyday eye shadow palettes and nude lipsticks.

That's why we do research each year to put together a list of the best, and most inspiring, festival looks that we can re-create for ourselves. There's a look for everyone, whether you subscribe to the less-is-more approach or you prefer the brightest, most eye-catching colors and shapes. Please excuse us while we peruse these 12 looks, get our desert beauty bags together, and hit the road to Indio. From us to you, happy Coachella.
