Coachella calling: How celebrities are getting ready, plus must-have beauty products
We delve into the Instagram accounts of the festival mainstays plus pick out the best beauty products, from an all-in-one face tint to a skin-saving mist that will help your brave the heat and the crowds

It's Coachella season again. And even if you can't hit the Californian desert in person, be there in spirit. Bring out the braids, pom-pom festooned sandals, intricately-detailed (but impractical) nail art and flower crowns. Scroll down to the end and you'll also see our beauty picks that are easy, compact and face-saving. And take a peek at the Instagrams of the usual suspects, to see how they're getting ready for the music festival, beauty-wise. 

Festival regular @vanessahudgens is going for blinged out taupe nails this year. Make sure any embellishments are secured and go for a gel manicure so it can last through the festivities.

If you're going to get papped like actress @emmaroberts, this is as good a time as any to debut a new hair colour. Hers is so last-minute, a friend is doing it in a hotel bathtub.


For @kendalljenner who posted this throwback snap, her "I'm ready" caption says it all. Jenner is sure to dazzle with her sartorial choices and picture-perfect makeup this year. The question is, will she be with Kylie or Gigi?

Coachella is hot — both literally and figuratively — so you're bound to be baring skin whether in midriff-revealing tops or cut-offs. As if Brazilian bombshell @alessandraambrosio needs to look any hotter than she already does.


If nail art is not your thing take a cue from @nicolerichie whose @houseofharlow1960 jewellery line is just the kind of arm candy you need to pretty up your digits (and wrists) for Coachella.


Get your game face on with these must-have products that beat the heat and leave you with that goddess glow:
