8 of the best beauty moments from Cannes Film Festival

The 75th Cannes Film Festival brought together the biggest celebrity names from across the globe for the 11 day event, celebrating the best of the film industry, from blockbusters to indie releases.

With so many famous faces in one spot, it comes as no surprise that some major beauty moments came out to play, from glitzy Euphoria-inspired eye looks to classic old Hollywood glamour.

PB’s content writer, Ellen Cummings, and editorial assistant, Lollie Hancock, run through their favourite beauty moments from the festival.

Euphoria eyes

We already knew Euphoria-inspired embellished looks were set to trend, with diamanté details likely to take over the festival scene this summer.

With Cannes known for stars to be hitting the red carpet dripping in diamonds and other precious stones, these celebs showed how to wear gems as part of your make-up.

    Liza Koshy’s MUA Sophia Sinot is no stranger to bold make-up looks, often using crystals and gemstones to create head-turning beats. For the Top Gun premier, the MUA took the gemstone details from the star’s Georges Hobeika gown to her eye make-up, creating a negative space winged liner effect with inner corner details standing out against the matte brown base. - Lollie Hancock

  2. Andie MacDowell

    Actress and model Andie MacDowell took the rhinestone trend under the eyes, perfectly matching the gems to her emerald-hued dress. MacDowell drew attention to the look by going for pared-down beauty on the rest of her face, with nude lips and a subtle blush. - Ellen Cummings 

It’s not just make-up becoming bejewelled, as searches for “pedicures with rhinestones” rising by 150% year-on-year

Get graphic

Giving MUAs a chance to play with shapes, symmetry and negative space, these celebs are proving that, like bold brows, dark, graphic liner is going nowhere.

    Danish model Josephine Skriver elevated her glowy, neutral make-up with a cut-out cat eye look. The negative space look on top of a minimal eyeshadow creates an elongated look, giving maximum effect with minimal work for an effortless look. - Lollie Hancock 

  2. Deepika Padukone

    The festival’s opening ceremony saw actress Deepika Padukone grace the red carpet with a bold eye look which reflected the sharp black lines of her sari. Unlike Skriver, Padukone rejected the negative space look in favour of filling in the whole lid and extending the shape towards the brow. - Ellen Cummings

Pretty in pink

A universal go-to when it comes to make-up, pops of pink easily warm up a look.

    Supermodel Elsa Hosk gave major Marilyn Monroe Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend vibes with her bright pink dress. Letting the gown have its moment, Hosk’s glowy make-up featured subtle pops of pink on the cheeks, eyes and lips to pull together the look without taking away from the dress and jewellery. – Lollie Hancock

  2. Elle Fanning

    Ever the queen of fairytale fashion and beauty, actress Elle Fanning looked ethereal in her light pink gown. The look was complemented by understated eye make-up, bright blusher and a pink coral lip. - Ellen Cummings

Get Red-y

Nothing screams old Hollywood glamour more than the perfect red lip. If you’re looking for your summer red lip inspo, look no further.

Actress and singer Kat Graham exuded classic glam with a cat eye and red lip at a festival dinner, with her slicked back hair and statement earrings framing the look. - Ellen Cummings

    The actress and director is here to disprove everything you’ve been told about red and pink clashing wrong. Matching a bold red lip to her Gucci gown, Hall made sure her cupid's bow was well defined for a clean and crisp look.
