The Cannes Film Festival 2015 may be about movies, but let’s face it, the red carpet in Cannes is just as exciting as the movie line-up. Packed with A-list stars and set in one of the most beautiful locations in the world, this festival definitely brings a whole lot of glamour to France.
So it makes sense that the celebrities attending the Cannes Festival give it their all when it comes to their red carpet looks. This year, it wasn’t just the stunning gowns that impressed, but also the stars’ hair and make up, which proved to be anything but boring.
If you need a bit of hair and make up inspo in your life right now, have a look at the following styles:
Rooney Mara put an interesting twist on the topknot with her hair half-down-half-up in a messy bun. It’s a casual contrast to her very feminine lace dress and works perfectly with her minimal make up and strong brows.
L’Oreal ambassador and model Barbara Palvin looked smoking in a semi-transparent black dress, but it was all about her eyes. Who said black liquid eyeliner should only be used on the top eyelid? Take a hint from Barbara and frame your entire eye in deep black to create the ultimate cat eye. Keep the rest of your make up natural as less is more.
Petra Nemcova’s half braided hairstyle is a romantic take on the popular undercut and a lot less scary than a half shaved head. It might take some practice, but this hairstyle is a showstopper.
Natalie Portman doesn’t need much to look absolutely beautiful, which she proved with a simple updo and nude lips, but who would have thought that metallic blue eyeliner can look this amazing? If you have brown eyes like Natalie, don’t shy away from a bit of blue and lots of black mascara to frame your eyes.
Lastly, the hottest model of the moment, Karlie Kloss, pulled off the no-makeup-makeup-look to perfection. Just a hint of pink on the lips and cheeks and loose wavy hair is all it takes to make Karlie look a million dollars. The key to this natural look? Perfect looking skin and strong eyebrows.
