Every year, performers, influencers, celebrities and fans flock to the Coachella Valley for North America’s biggest music festival (it attracts over 250,000 attendees per year) bringing with them their festival fashions and glam. This year, we experienced major FOMO once again as we watched our favorite Coachella beauty looks. From Lana to Sabrina and Paris to Alix, we couldn’t look away. Here are a few of our favorites from week one.

Lana Del Rey

The night one headliner arrived to the stage in a motorcycle cavalcade reminiscent of her Ride video to the delight of devoted fans. Celebrity makeup artist Etienne Ortega gave her the most perfect Hollywood starlet glam using his new Soft Contour Lip Liner in “Xola” ($16) and Liquid Icon Hyper Gloss ($18) in “Por Vida” from his new Ortega line.

Hair stylist Anna Cofone says she gave Lana old Hollywood hair with Authentic Beauty Concept products. “Lana and I were inspired by Hollywood icons for this look – the likes of Veronica Lake and Lauren Bacall. A timeless look that’s elegant yet updated— Hollywood waves in the desert. This look also pays homage to Lana’s look when we first started working together in 2011,” says Cofone. She applied the Shaping Cream ($25) and Strong Hold Hairspray ($22) to shape her classic look.

Makeup artist Carolina Gonzalez slayed the house boots down with her ethereal goddess glow. For her sparkly eye she used Half Magic Beauty Glitterpuck Pressed Glitter ($26) on her lids as well as Glitterpill in Microcosm ($22). Gonzalez says the Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Glow Blush ($39) in shades 51 and 52 were the key to creating her signature blushed look.

Ice Spice

Making a departure from her short, curly look, the rapper brought out the spicy long locks for her history-making performance. Hairstylist Dijah says she secured her wig cap in place using göt2b glued Bonding Glue ($9). “It ensures a seamless look and kept the wig perfectly in place all day—no touch-ups needed and it’s gentle on the scalp,” she said. During her set she gave a shout out to collaborator Taylor Swift who showed her support from the crowd.
