There’s no event quite like the Cannes Film Festival to draw elegant beauty inspo from. Set in the French Riviera, glamorous couture gowns were paired with the most classic beauty looks. From Parisian-chic red lip to bold smokey eyes and fresh-faced summer beauty with messy buns, the focus was on illuminating the skin to complement the abundance of jewels caressing their necklines and ear lobes. In this issue, we’re diving into recreating these vintage looks with a modernized twist that emits a healthy glow and added effortless beach babe panache.
During the eleven-day festival, red lippie graced the lips of many a celebrities in a quintessentially Old Hollywood style.
Winged liner, lashings of mascara and a light wash of shimmery eyeshadow accompanied the pop of red. For those with warm undertones, reds with an orange or yellow undertone are best-suited while those with cool undertones can sport a bold blue-based hue. Well-suited with any hairstyle; whether it be a quirky vintage bob as rocked by Soojoo Park; a relaxed top knot by Amber Heard; or a fun yet demure half up-do to give major princess vibes; the red-lip will always be in vogue.

BIG AND BOLD
Easily translated into a striking look for a birthday
bash or black-tie event is the smokey eye.
All eyes were on Deepika Padukone as she sashayed down the runway in a jaw-dropping pink origami number and statement pink burgundy peepers. 17-year old French model Thylane Blondeau gave off rocker-girl vibes with her textured hair, chain choker and black kohl liner that smudged into her shimmery peachy purple eyeshadow. Leave lips neutral with a creamy swipe of nude.

FRESH AND FLUTTERY
Doutzen Kroes stunned our socks off in an all black Tom Ford power suit with a slick middle-parting to match. Keeping her makeup fresh-faced with the main focus on fluttering eyelashes, her sophisticated look oozed finesse from head to toe. Victoria’s Secret model Ming Xi donned deep-parted sleek waves and a messy seaside bun; both times with minimal makeup. Showing off her clear, transparent glass skin, a touch of glossy sheer lip colour and a coloured flick was enough for the red carpet.
