What better way to start off the festival season than with the most glamorous of them all – the 68th Cannes Film Festival. Okay, you may not be able to get your hands on an invite, and there’s certainly not a pop-up tent in sight, but at least we can admire all the best hair and beauty looks. Every cloud, right?
First up is the oh-so-glamorous Sienna Miller. Makeup artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury used products from her own line to create Sienna’s sophisticated look. Charlotte created the perfect matte berry-rose pout using two shades of her Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl and Walk of Shame, and blended shades from The Sophisticate Luxury Eyeshadow Palette to create soft, feminine eyes. Plus, her coiffed bob looks like it’s going nowhere soon; swept over into a side parting and tucked behind the ear, it’s the perfect style for Sienna’s off the shoulder dress.
Lupita Nyong’o is never one to shy away from colour when it comes to beauty – and she’s also proof that you shouldn’t have to match your makeup with your clothing. We love the way her magenta gloss clashes with her sea green gown and ruby red jewels – try MAC’s Dazzleglass in Funtabulous for the perfect purple-pink lips. And if she wasn’t dripping in enough gems, she’s only gone and decorated her bun with a sparkly headband. Lupita, we salute you.
Oh, Julianne. Can she do no wrong? Her smoky eyes in brown and bronze shades are perfect for green eyes, avoiding the harshness of black. And why ruin beautifully shaded eyes with look-at-me lips; Julianne’s nude sheen lips shout sophistication. Her simple, slick hair with deep side parting and not a flyaway in sight means attention remains firmly on the eyes (or perhaps those showstopper drop earrings). A dust of peachy bronzer along the cheekbones and the look is complete – Soap and Glory’s Peach Party Multicolour Blush Brick is the right combination of pink and tan colours. We’re hoping we look as fabulous when we hit our 50s.
