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 lipâ€¢use a formula with blue undertones for that rich ruby hueâ€¢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.
