With the number of celebrities experimenting with permanent hair color these days, perhaps they should consider taking a page from Salma Hayek’s playbook?  The actress and wife of French businessman, François-Henri Pinault, attended the Kering Women in Motion Awards Dinner at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday night.  Wearing a floral-embellished Gucci gown, Hayek, 50, sported a daring rose-hued lob with Veronica Lake-inspired waves.  The look was both sultry and stunning.  Brava!

Stunning Salma Hayek appeared with husband, François-Henri Pinault, at the Met’s first monograph show since 1983.  Celebrity makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen was inspired by the Gala’s Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garçons theme.  “We decided on a soft, beautiful look with a zen feel. We went with a fairly simple look that emphasized eyes, eyebrows and dewy skin,” he shared, as he provided the step-by-step to Hayek’s Gala Style!

VanLeeuwen prepped Hayek’s beautiful skin with A Complete Youth Preserve Serum (“I love the way it smells, the way it feels, and the way it made Salma’s skin absolutely come alive”), which he applied with his hands. He then slathered on A Complete Facial Youth Moisturizing Cream with a sponge, followed by A Complete Youth Preserve Eye Contouring Cream.

For Hayek’s striking eyes, VanLeeuwen applied Shiseido Shimmering Eye Cream Color in Fog to her lids, lining her upper and lower inner lash lines with Nuance Long Lasting Shadow Stick in Shimmered Bark.  Then he swiped her lashes with Diorshow Mascara in Black.  After applying a layer of foundation he used Nuance Flawless Finish Illuminating Blush & Bronzer Duo in Bronzed Rosewood on Salma’s skin, followed by blush on the apples of her cheeks.  Finally, VanLeeuwen lined Salma’s lips with Makeup Forever High Precision Lip Pencil in Number 14 over Senna Lip Lacquer in Belladonna.

On the road to the Oscars, stylists in Hollywood are stepping up their games!  While some A-Listers were big winners — such as Claire Foy (in Valentino), Emma Stone (in Alexander McQueen), Janelle Monáe (in Chanel), Emily Blunt (in Cavalli), Michelle Williams (in Louis Vuitton), and Natalie Portman (in Dior) — others, such as Nicole Kidman (in Gucci), Kate Hudson (in Dior), and Salma Hayek (in Gucci) were panned.  The evening’s big winners were Stone for “La La Land,” Foy for “The Queen,” Viola Davis (in Vivian Westwood) for “Fences,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus for “Veep,” and Sarah Paulson (in Vera Wang) for “American Crime Story:  The People V OJ Simpson.”
