So far, Cannes makeup has been an upbeat mix of the classic and the completely unexpected.
Right off the bat, Kristen Stewart grabbed attention at the opening ceremony in her signature smoky eye with one surprising element — a touch of shimmering, subtly colorful glitter.
Many of the best makeup looks from this year’s red carpets have struck a similar balance between sophistication and unpredictable edge.
As classy as it gets, bright red lipstick has enlivened more than one ravishing ensemble, including Amber Heard’s spaghetti strap Valentino number and Irina Shayk’s plunging monochrome gown.
More startling but no less gorgeous, the vivid eye makeup trend is making the rounds along the French Riviera. Lupita Nyong’o stood out at one point with raspberry rouge highlighting her upper lids. On another occasion, crescents of iridescent sage green were strikingly placed just below the Star Wars celeb’s brows. Vibrant shades have also appeared on Julianne Moore and Joan Smalls. — jas
