Vanessa Hudgens on Festival Beauty, a Balanced Exercise Routine and Her New Cosmetics Launch
As the queen of Coachella, Vanessa Hudgens knows a thing or two about festival makeup. In fact, she’s so well known for her stellar summer looks that Hudgens even landed a festival-themed collaboration with the cosmetics brand, SinfulColors, complete with 12 nail shades and an eyeshadow palette.
Since Hudgens claims she does her own makeup for festivals, we decided to ask her for her best tips this season, and surprisingly, her favorite tip has nothing to do with facial makeup. “I’m loving ombré nails right now for festival season—they’re so easy to do!” Hudgens says. “There are so many amazing colors in the [SinfulColors] collection that look so great together. To create this look, I do a base coat of one color, then I take a little makeup sponge and paint the second color on the top portion of the nail.”
When it comes to keeping her body Coachella-ready, Hudgens says she prefers a more robust exercise routine as opposed to a strict diet. “My recipe of exercise that works for me is spinning, yoga and Pilates,” Hudgens explains. “Yoga for my sanity, Pilates to lengthen and tone and spinning for cardio.”
Even though Hudgens prefers working out over dieting, she still watches what she eats—especially before photoshoots. “I have a body type that can put on weight very easily, so I do watch what I eat to a certain extent,” she says. “[Before photoshoots] I try to stick to no carbs but it’s also important to allow yourself some indulgences—I love ramen, pizza and pasta and I let myself have it because you only live once.” Preach, Vanessa, we couldn't agree with you more.
