We have followed the looks at the Cannes Film Festival obsessively, as we follow all of the award shows and celebrity gatherings to see how our favorites choose to look and dress when left to their own devices. Actors are always playing roles and having their hair, makeup, and clothing dictated by directors, producers, photographers, stylists, and so on. That’s the reason the Red Carpet makes for such GREAT television!
We’ve picked five fabulous looks that celebrities wore at various Cannes-related events and premieres so that we could show you how to re-create those same looks using colorOn…Professional products.
The most stunning, colorful, and fashion forward was, without a doubt, Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, whom we’ve featured before. She is stunning and totally unafraid to experiment with bold colors. At Cannes, her look was heavily influenced by the runway at Jason Wu, with heavy gold and sapphire metallic shadows. You can get a more wearable version by using Lost in Space instant eye shadow from lid to brow, and our Smooth Monarch Gold Shimmer under the lower lashes. Follow with lots of mascara, a touch of bronzer, and a nude/caramel gloss, and you’ll rock the Bollywood look, too.
The ethereal Angelina Jolie complimented her understated beige, head-to-toe Ferragamo with her usual smoky eye/pinky nude lip. You can get the same smoldering eye with colorOn’s Lava instant eye shadow, bringing a bit of the gold under the lower lash-line. Lots of mascara, groomed and filled brows, and Angelina’s signature pinkish/nude gloss and you are ready to shine.
The lovely Diane Kruger, who simply wowed the world throughout the award show season with her incredible taste in gowns, kept up her winning streak with a gold Calvin Klein that called for spring flower colors in her makeup.
You can get the same eye look with colorOn’s Coral Cove instant eye shadow, a peony cream blush and lipstick.
The petite Emily Browning, in a nude lace Valentino gown, complimented the gold and silver in the lace with the same shadow colors as colorOn’s Gypsy instant eye shadow to make her hazel eyes stand out, then added color with honeysuckle pink cream blush and lipstick.
Finally, we have the hottest mama on the planet, singer Gwen Stefani. In her plunging black Stella McCartney, Mrs. Gavin Rossdale went even more retro than usual with pin-curls, black smoky eyes, and bright pink lipstick. You can get the exact same smoky eye using colorOn’s Noche. Sorry we can’t supply anything else Ms. Stefani possesses: a multi-platinum singing career, a successful clothing and accessories line, two beautiful children, and a rather sublime English husband.
However, we can supply a winner on Friday, so we’ll be back with the Winners Circle then! And remember, we still have a FREE SHIPPING promotion running until the end of May.
