TREND ALERT: HAIR AND BEAUTY SECRETS FROM CANNES

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

From luminescent faces to dramatic updos and ruler-straight middle parts, our friends at BeautyPress helps us take a look at the beauty and hair trends which have, thus far, ruled the red carpets at the 2018 Festival de Cannes:

FRESH FACES + ACCENTUATED EYES + PINK LIPS  Spotted On: Kristen Stewart, Romee Strijd and Lea Seydoux  Forget overdone matte makeup looks — fresh faces are very much back on trend if Cannes is anything to go by! Stars ranging from Kristen Stewart to Penelope Cruz to Cate Blanchett have all been sporting luminescent “naked” skin paired with accentuated eyes and shimmery pink lips.

To achieve the look, you need to start with a good skincare regime: cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize to remove dead skin cells and reveal your skin’s natural glow. Then opt for a natural-finish, light-coverage foundation as your base (you’ll want to avoid anything matte or full-coverage). Tap a few dots of concealer on problem spots to even out your skin tone, then fix the look with a light pressed powder that will diffuse shine without mattifying your skin.  To complete the look, choose either shimmery eye shadow paired with nude pink lips or opt for pink lipstick paired with a smoky eye.

STRONG MIDDLE PARTS   Spotted On: Penelope Cruz, Cate Blanchett, Chloe Sevigny and Georgia May Jagger   A strong middle part can seem intimidating to many who think that they only work for certain face shapes or hair lengths. Yet, since the festival’s opening day, stars have been taking to the carpet in droves to show us how this classic parting can suit pretty much everyone!  The middle part is also incredibly forgiving when you’ve not had time to touch up your roots as well. Celebrity stylists agree that showing your roots has actually been “in” for some seasons now and can modernize this classical look — as demonstrated by Chloe Sevigny and Georgia May Jagger at the Cannes Opening Ceremony.

PIRELLI 2017: A RETURN TO HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR!

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

Pirelli NicoleWhile the 2016 Pirelli Calendar shared  diversity in its aesthetic and focused on the strength of its subjects (Annie Leibovitz’s subjects included Serena Williams, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Amy Schumer), the 2017 edition marks a return to Hollywood glamour.  Photographer Peter Lindburgh chose an all–star line-up, which includes, Lupita Nyong’o, Jessica Chastain, Uma Thurman, Nicole Kidman (above), Lea Seydoux, Robin Wright, Zhang Ziyi, Helen Mirren, Rooney Mara, Penelope Cruz, Julianne Moore, Charlotte Rampling, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain, and “special guest,” Anastacia Ignatova, a professor at Moscow State University.

Speaking with Vogue, Lindburgh called the shoot, “a love song to the women I really know and really like, and there’s no exception.”  The German photographer joked that he cast “Everyone in this calendar, at one point in my life, I wanted to marry, and I didn’t have the balls to ask them!”  Lindburgh shot his first Pirelli Calendar in 1996, choosing supermodels of the day.  Yet, in 2002, he changed the iconic brand’s landscape by casting Hollywood actresses (in this shoot he featured ingenues such as Selma Blair, Brittany Murphy, Jaime King, and Julia Stiles).  So why return to actresses, not models, this time?  “The one big difference between actresses and models is that models are fixed to the camera, and actresses never look at a camera if you don’t force them. They learn their whole life to be there and forget there’s a camera. That’s a fundamental difference.”
