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.
