Cannes 2016: All The Best Beauty Looks

Blake Lively’s hair, Kristen Stewart’s lipstick, Bella Hadid’s highlighter, Kendall Jenner’s everything! The red carpet at Cannes Film Festival has gotten off to an incredibly glamorous start.

While the dresses at Cannes are often the talking point of the festival’s legendary red carpet, this year hair and makeup are taking over.

Blake Lively opened the festival with yet another gorgeous look, teaming her shimmering rose gold dress (and tiny baby bump) with pretty makeup picking up the hues in her frock. Of course, her hair was out of this world too, tumbling about her shoulders in glossy, bouncy waves.

Supermodels Bella Hadid and and Doutzen Kroes followed Blake’s lead with soft makeup and plenty of strobing – wait ‘til you see Bella’s cheekbones! – while Eva Longoria and Doutzen went for strikingly similar hairstyles perfect for summer evening glam.

Kristen Stewart, normally one for a smoky eye rather than a statement lip, surprised us all with her bright red lipstick – we’re obsessed with her look! Walking the red carpet with confidence, the movie star and face of Chanel teamed her pillar box red pout with lashings of mascara and liquid liner, sweeping her new bleach blonde hair over to one side.

Lily Dondaldson gave us serious hair inspo with her loose plait that perfectly balances relaxed glam with cool summer style, finishing up with a nineties inspired dark brown lippy.

Then of course, there’s VB. Victoria Beckham hit Cannes in a chic black and white jumpsuit, pinning her up in a textured chignon to show off the pleated trim around her neckline. In signature VB style, she rocked a smoky eye with some added sparkle at the inner corners, and kept her lips nude and glossy.

We’re already loving the Cannes beauty inspo, and there’s still plenty more to come!
