In case you needed another reason to fall in love with L’Oréal Paris’s diverse roster of brand ambassadors, just check out the red carpet roundups from this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Since 1997, L’Oréal Paris has been a part of the Cannes Film Festival. As the official makeup artist of the event, the brand enjoys a front row seat to all the red carpet fashion, A-list guests and industry-changing cinema.
As the 76th annual festival goes on, a star-studded lineup of guests continue to light up the red carpet with sleek hairstyles, unique makeup looks, and glossy skin, including L’Oréal Paris’s spokes. Gemma Chan, Viola Davis, Aishwarya Rai and Elle Fanning — just to name a few — were on everyone’s lips for their show-stopping looks. Below, we’re sharing the L’Oréal Paris products you can use (and that they used) to get the look at home.
Elle Fanning is known for her flawless porcelain skin that doesn’t need much to accentuate it. She sported several looks throughout the week but they were all punctuated with a rosy glow on her lips and cheeks.
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Lip and Cheek TintGet a monochromatic flush like the star of The Great for your special occasions and everyday beauty looks alike.
Viola Davis sported a smoky eye and an Afro on day two and we’re still gagged, picking up our jaws and attempting to recreate the Air star’s look. The good news: We know the perfect eyeliner and it costs less than a movie ticket.
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel Eyeliner
Use the built-in smudger to smoke out the easy-glide, waterproof formula to help you create a sultry look à la Davis.
Helen Mirren surprised fans with a head-turning updo of blue, purple and silver strands. The lavender and violet mix complemented her soft purple gown and nails perfectly and were such a delightful and whimsical departure for the Academy award winning actress.
These semi-permanent hair color gels wash out after just a few shampoo sessions so you can experiment with a look like Mirren’s and change up the colors just a few weeks later.
Aseel Omran’s dewy skin is a red carpet must-have and mainstay. In fact, it’s a look we can get behind for special occasions and everyday wear.
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow EnhancerWear this highlighter lotion on its own or on top of your foundation for skin that looks deliciously radiant but never greasy. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer up to 24H Full Coverage first if you have any dark spots or blemishes you want to cover up.
Aishwarya Rai got the memo that a classic red lip and a sleek blowout will always be a red carpet winning look. She paired those standouts with a shimmering reverse cat eye and bold brows. We love to see it!
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Intense Volume Matte Lipstick
You can never go wrong with a red lip and a matte lipstick like this will give you the long wear you need for a busy festival weekend.
Gemma Chan is known for her alluring eyes and makeup artist Val Garland knows that playing them up with dark eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line is an easy way to make them pop even more.
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof EyelinerThe ultra precise felt tip applicator lets even the most novice makeup lover get a winged eyeliner look like a pro. To really channel Chan’s look, sweep on a bit of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Blush to balance out the intensity of your eyes with the rest of your face.
Cindy Bruna sported flawless matte skin with cheeks that looked lifted and chiseled, but also radiant and fresh. She paired the look with a full-bodied blowout for a look that made the model appear to be a total work of art.
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Bronzer
Warm up your face and add a subtle contour (if you dare) using this matte bronzer. The waterproof, sweatproof, heatproof formula lasts up to 24 hours — exactly how long you may be non-stop partying during a fabulous festival weekend.
Give Bruna’s hairstyle a try too and add the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray - Unscented to your cart to keep your blowout laid all night without any sticky residue or crunchy finish.
Soo Joo Park may be the only person we know that can not only pull off Spock brows, but rock them on a red carpet (with a wet hair look) and make us want to experiment with the edgy trend.
Product Recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer Mechanical Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil
The ultra thin tip lets you create light strokes that look like natural, tiny brow hairs. When attempting a brow style this unique, you want to start slow and add more coverage little by little — this is the tool to help you do just that. To help you get her alluring eye makeup look, grab the Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel Eyeliner and line your top lash line only.
