Let some red-carpet drama inspire your makeup r(o)utine!

The Annual Film Festival of Cannes is one of the most prestigious invite ever. Scoring an invite is actually a pretty darn big deal. This year, Cannes saw not one, two or three, but six Indian faces at the red the carpet. And not only did they serve us up with some amazing red carpet looks, they also made way for sensational makeup trends. With a play on the classic smokey eye, or ditching the pinks and reds for a softer colour, the differences were subtle, but its effect, everlasting. Let’s take a look at some eye-catching makeup trends, our Bollywood divas inspired at the Cannes Film Festival

Glistening Goddess

No red carpet look is complete with a dash of highlighter. But there’s a tasteful way of doing it. You don’t want your skin to look blinding, neither do you want it to fall flat. Deepika Padukone and Aishwarya Rai not only understand this but preach. All of their makeup looks are so perfectly highlighted, that it glistens and looks lit from within. A great way of recreating this is adding a hint of liquid highlighter or strobe cream in your foundation.

My Face But Better

Every once in a while, celebrities give their highlighted, bright hued makeup looks a miss and make way for more subtle, nude toned and day time appropriate looks. This stands true, if it’s a day time event or if you’re going to be clicked against the beautiful French Rivera. Sonam Kapoor’s and Huma Qureshi’s subtle day time glam stands out, effortlessly. To recreate this look, switch your full coverage foundation for a tinted moisturiser and powder just a hint of highlighter.

Bawse in Brown

The subtle, earthy, cool toned brown may be fashion favourite, but most prefer to stay away from it when it comes to makeup, for a simple reason – it makes you look old. But Priyanka Chopra’s brown smokey eye-winged eyeliner combo with a cool brown pout and Deepika Padukone’s subtle day time brow glam look is proof that it works wonders if we might add. Brown makes a great alternative when you want a smokey eye, but subtler or just a poppin’ pout that isn’t over-the-top.

Coloured Eyeliner

You don’t always need an elaborate eye makeup look for a glam look. Sometimes all you need is a banging coloured liner. Check out Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut chose a coloured liner as an embellishments and kept rest of their face clean. Subtle and glamorous!
