This week, the versatility of the red lip is on full display with three wedding beauty looks from the Cannes Film Festival.
Lea Seydoux at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of 'It's Only the End of the World': Lea takes the subtler approach to the red lip trend by keeping the rest of her makeup simple. Start with a full coverage foundation to give your complexion a flawless appearance and add a delicate wash of blush along the cheekbone. Fill in any sparse places in the brows, so they look defined, but not overly exaggerated, and then focus on the eyes: Tightline the upper lid only, and apply one coat of mascara. Use a primer on the eyelids to mask any discoloration, so the lids blend seamlessly with the rest of the skin. Finally, finish off the look with a matte orange/red lipstick, and make sure you line the lips with a matching liner first, for a precise look.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of 'The Unknown Girl': On the opposite end of the spectrum is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's ultra-glam look. A flawless complexion is once again the starting point, followed by bronzer in the hollows of the cheeks—but don't blend it in as you normally would—keep the line bold for a more dramatic effect. Highlight the apples of the cheeks and the bridge of the nose; brush the eyebrows up and out and fill them in, making sure you extend the tail slightly past the natural end. Use a liquid liner along the upper lash line and either use a lengthening mascara or apply a strip of faux lashes. Use a peachy taupe eyeshadow on the brow bone and a shimmery white shadow on the lid. Then comes the bright red lip•use a formula with blue undertones for that rich ruby hue•once again lining the lips first.
Kristen Stewart at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of 'Personal Shopper': The final red lip look takes things to a grungier level and is perfect for the bride who likes her glamour with a side of rocker chic. For the complexion, use a lightweight cushion compact foundation or BB Cream, so your natural skintone shows through. Fill in your brows with a shade much darker than your natural hair color, but brush through them to keep things looking natural. Next, tightline around both eyes and then use a gray kohl liner all around the eyes, smudging thoroughly. Create a tiny flick out the outer corners to give the slight impression of a cateye, and apply mascara. For the lips, apply a berry stain, or, for another method, you can apply a traditional mascara and then blot your lips on a tissue until all the cream is until all that is left is the stained effect.
