I love Cannes glamour. It’s a different kind of glamour to your regular Hollywood event. It’s more refined, classier and, well… more French! No one does it better than the L’Oreal Paris Ambassadors. Each of them looked flawless on the Red Carpet this year thanks to the amazingly talented nail artist Tom Bochik and makeup artist Karim Rahman for L’Oreal Paris.
Eva Longoria, as always, was stunning on the red carpet. She rocked her typical dark smokey eye and nude lip, but did it with refinement and softness. Complimenting her dark sultry eye and gorgeous white lace dress, was a deep wine-red nail, which added a perfect dash of sexiness to her look. Eva’s nail colour was L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish in Scarlett Vamp and her nude lips were L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche in Organza. Eva amplified her eyes using L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Le Smokey Eye Pencil in Black Velour for her signature smokey eye. On lids she used L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad in Absolutely Taupe. Her dark eye was offset with soft waves in her hair. Stunning!
One of my favourite ambassadors, Freida Pinto, looked perfectly pretty in a watermelon hued strapless dress. Her makeup artist made an impact with a defined and dark smokey eye, lined with L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Smokey eye pencil in Black. Brows were enhanced with L’Oreal Paris Superliner Brow Artist Shaper in Dark Brunette, to pull focus to the eye. Freida’s makeup look was softened and made more youthful, with L’Oreal Paris True Match Blush in Sandalwood Pink which was applied to the apples of the cheek and brushed up, adding flattering warmth to her makeup look. Nails were coated with L’Oreal Paris Le Vernis Nail Polish Top Coat in Diamond Carat to add a bit a sparkle and fun to her overall look.
The flawless Barbara Palvin, kept her look all natural on the Cannes stage. Her focus was on beautiful healthy skin. She kept her look simple and clean with L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint Foundation in Ivory, and focused on a soft smokey eye in natural browns, using L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche eyeshadow Quad in Forever Bronze. Lips were kept nude and natural with L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Nude, and the drama came in the form of beautiful long lashes. Barbara’s eyelashes were coated with L’Oreal Paris False Lash Butterfly Wings Mascara in Black. Barbara’s simple white gown looked striking, with hair simply left down.
Ambassador Aishwarya Rai upped the glamour stakes with a striking eye and regal purple nails. For her eye, her makeup artist used L’Oreal Super Liner Blackbuster in black, and added more black with the L’Oreal Paris Superliner Gelmtatic in Ultra Black, for the inner water line. Lips were kept simply and glossy with L’Oreal Shine Caresse in Lolita, which was a perfect match for the darker eye. And those nails were L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Vernis in Divine Indigo. Again hair was kept in a soft curl, to offset the dramatic makeup look. A perfect balance between edgy and feminine.
