Long before Vanessa Hudgens, Kylie Jenner, Alessandra Ambrosio and more became today’s Coachella regulars, Drew Barrymore was the queen of the music festival (which she loved attending with Cameron Diaz). Today, the actress and Flower Beauty founder published a post on her site looking back on her most memorable Coachella experiences.

“One thing that gives me that rearview mirror joy, whether it was day or night, year after year, songs drenched in palm tree swayed air, was the fact that I felt like I could do whatever I wanted at festivals fashion and makeup-wise. I could swipe silver pigment across my forehead. Wear my chalky white eyeliner to my temple, pajama pants from Chinatown, and a feather in my hair,” Barrymore writes.

“Trucking around in wellie Hunter boots, I would tuck my skirt into my underwear so that it looked like I had a cape for pants with high leg slits,” Barrymore said. “Everything goes at music festivals and I love that.”
