How to Score Florence Welch's Coachella Beauty Look
The music fest might be over, but we still can't get over the performer's onstage glow. Makeup artist Kirin Bhatty explains how we can achieve her look, too.
Coachella has come and gone, but we can’t get Florence and the Machine out of our minds — from weekend one, when Florence Welch rocked out so hard she broke her foot, to last weekend, when Father John Misty made a surprise appearance during the redhead’s set, joining her for a duet on “Love Hurts.”
As if we weren’t already girl-crushing hard enough on Florence, we’re also totally digging the songstress’ weekend-two onstage makeup look, courtesy of makeup artist Kirin Bhatty.

“This week, Florence's set was different; she was sitting, not running around. Her look is a little more ethereal because of the strings and more acoustic setting — versus last week's performance, where she jumped offstage and injured herself,” explains Bhatty, who also worked with the artist during weekend one. “I went for glowy, especially around the orbital bones, with inky black lashes that were combed through with just a bit of taupe-toned shadow at the lash line.”
Because Florence is a fair redhead, Bhatty also explains that a little product goes a long way: Colors pop easily on the songstress’ light complexion. For this reason, Bhatty employed a lot of pink and nude shades, including Smashbox's "Brow Tech" Palette in Auburn ($26) on her brows, mixed with a pencil from Kevyn Aucoin ($26) in Warm Blonde. For Florence’s lips, Bhatty opted for a barely there hue, combining Tarte’s Power Pigment in Exposed ($24) with Lucas’ Papaw Ointment ($10).
And the secret to getting Florence performance-ready? “I use Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($30) and hit her with a little Dior Diorskin Forever pressed powder ($52) before she gets onstage.”
