The annual Cannes Film Festival just wrapped—and after the craziness of the Met Gala, it was a welcome change of pace!
On this red carpet, you won't find any spiky lashes, colourful eyebrows or beehive hairdos. Instead, the crowd of models and movie stars served up fresh skin, elegant updos and an array of sophisticated eye and lip looks.

Selena, it's been a while! She looks adorable in graphic cat eyes with a bold red lip and a sleek updo. Note the natural brows and the soft texture of the lashes.
Selena is wearing: Moisturizer • Foundation in Y270 • Concealer in Light 23 • Powder in Siren 52 • Bronzer in Tan-Tastic 104 • Blush in Flesh & Fantasy 506 • Eyeshadow in Flashlight • Liquid liner in Blacquer • Mascara in Noir • Lipstick in Oh Miley 200
Margot skipped eye makeup (except for mascara) in favour of a rosy blush and a matte, contoured rose lip—which has almost become her signature. The undone braids add interest to her straight hairstyle.
Penélope is all bronzy and glowy in this peachy lipstick, matching blush. I love how the eyeliner emphasizes the pretty almond shape of her eyes.
Jasmine couldn't look more elegant in this ladylike updo and tone-on-tone makeup. I love the pop of brighter blush.
Amber matched her lipstick and eyeshadow to her dress, and I love this burgundy colour on her. She also pulls off the gelled-back long hair.
Shailene's smoky eyes and bronzed lips add drama to her menswear-inspired outfit. I just find the liner under her eyes a bit harsh, and would have blended the contour some more.
Elle looks like an absolute doll in this bouncy blowout and pretty peachy-pink lipstick. The brows have great texture, and her skin is so flawless!
Julianne went with her usual soft plum tones for her smoky eyes, pairing them with a sheer pink blush and lip gloss. But it's her red hair that makes the main colour statement when paired with a green dress.
Dakota did the princess-ballerina thing, wearing her hair in a neat bun and keeping her makeup sheer and pink-toned. It's not fashion-forward, but it's so pretty.
Chloë wore a classic red lipstick (no lip injections here!) and as usual, as little makeup as possible everywhere else. That, along wth the loose hair, creates her signature effortless vibe.
Marion showed off new bleached-blonde ends with a wavy style and skinny headband... but personally, I'll always prefer her in a classic brunette bob! The pink makeup works well, however, her brows seem too drawn-on.
Hooray, Alessandra did a red lip! She rarely does colour, but it's so pretty on her with this loose updo and her signature cat eyes.
Ming is stunning in bold cat eyes, straight natural brows and peach lips with a tight, low bun. And her skin is literally perfection.
I love how Josephine sculpted her eyelids with a pinky shadow in the same tone as her dress. The wispy updo gives this a soft, romantic feel.
Izabel was another one to embrace a matchy-matchy look, pulling the fuchsia from her dress to create a bold but diffused eye. How gorgeous are her brunette waves?
Winnie amped up her look with a bright, glittery purple shadow surrounded by lots of matte charcoal shading. I think it's the latter that makes this seem too heavy, at least under the eyes.
It's nice to see Elsa in something different—a crown braid along with soft, sun-kissed makeup. She always plays up her eyes, but this brown shadow is softer than her usual black liner.
I love seeing Bella in red lipstick for a change! The matching sheer shadow is a cool touch as well. But I'm not loving the curly updo... and it appears she got some recent tweaks. Her face literally looks like it's being pulled up at the sides!
