Since her post-twerking rise, Miley Cyrus has become the queen of unexpected outfit changes. Just on her Bangerz Tour alone, Milez is working with some massive suitcases containing outfits from nearly a dozen different designers. And she just added more for the European leg. But as far as her makeup goes, that’s been the one consistent piece of her look—until last night.
Over the past few days, Miley has been Instagramming her new bedazzled “dirty hippie” face-paint look with hot pink stripes and rhinestones. At first we thought it was just a celebratory look for her mom's birthday, like the seemingly endless supply of hats and masks she has with her on tour, but last night Miley performed wearing her new makeup. If Miley were at Coachella, she’d blend right in. But considering the festival is a month behind us, we’re guessing another influence is at work here.

Could the Flaming Lips’ psych-freak aesthetic be rubbing off on her? She’s been spending a lot of time with the band’s frontman Wayne Coyne—she even copped one of his looks and asked her Instagram followers who pulled it off better. Maybe she's moved on from clothing to stealing his appreciation for performing with face decorations? Can we expect the front of her hair to be blue soon? I mean, she has the perfect base for it. Just sayin'.
