Voulez Vous Rouge 

It’s all about the no make up-makeup look paired fabulously with bright red lips that make them pop even more! Irina Shayk, Marion Cotillard and Joan Smalls set the record straight in minimal make up and a brilliant lip. Jasmine Tookes and Sara Sampaio’s coated lips that were almost neon in the Cannes red hue.

Brilliant Brows

Bold is the way to go with brows and Cannes saw more and more women embracing a fuller look. Emilia Clarke (the eyebrow queen), Shanina Shaik and Alessandra Ambrosio kept eyebrows simple, groomed and gorgeous.

Natural Goddesses

There is nothing more amazing than a woman embracing her natural curls. Sonia Rolland, Thandie Newton and Lupita Nyong’O wore it proud and loud. Curls were kept at their best, loose and wild or styled up in an afro ponytail.

All Around Liner

The eyeliner that wraps all the way around was a big hit this year. Jennifer Connelly and Clemence Poesy kept the liner very fine on the upper and lower lid as well as filling in the water line.
