Cheryl Cole wowed us at Cannes Film Festival this week, proving she’s still the UK’s most glamourous star. But behind every flawless red-carpet look is a dedicated team of stylists and make-up artists. Lisa Laudat, celebrity make-up artist at L’Oréal Paris, has made Cheryl look picture-perfect at her last four Cannes appearances, and knows exactly what the singer likes…
“We work together on the look, thinking about the type of dress and what colours will suit her”, reveals Lisa. “We like something with a twist, and not too classic – like pink lips with a coral hint. We love to set a trend!” As for Cheryl’s trademark glossy hair, Lisa enlists a whole host of L’Oréal products to ensure it stays in place while allowing it to move naturally.
“First I use L’Oréal Paris Silk & Gloss Mousse, £3.69, on wet hair – it doesn’t go crunchy or crispy, and gives a glossy shine. Then, I smooth Elvive Extraordinary Oil, £9.99, through the ends. I blow-dry and pin as I go, finally setting it with Elnett Hairspray, £3.79.”
And for that all important glow? Lisa says: “My secret is that lipgloss isn’t just for lips! It’s great for highlighting under brows and on cheekbones too.” Watch out, Cheryl, we’ll be beauty rivals in no time!
