[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

Cannes Film Festival this year had so many A listers hitting the red carpet dressed up to the nines. Cannes always sets the fashion stakes high and we were not disappointed! Here is a roundup of our favourite looks from the first week, and there is still more to come in this glamorous 12 day event.

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o looked a picture as she stood swirling on the red carpet in her mint green Gucci dress. Lupita is always one to embrace a bright shade and her plunging gown with flower detail was no different. Her simple hairdo consisted of a big bun which ensured all eyes were on her dress.

We absolutely love Cate’s Giles gown, and may even go as far to say this is our favourite creation of week one. She chose to wear this complex strapless dress with its hypnotic print to the premiere of her latest film, Carol.

This year Sienna Miller is a Cannes jury member, flying the flag for the Brits. She looked stunning in a simple, understated one shouldered Lanvin dress which was given a contemporary edge with the addition of an exposed zip. We love how the design sweeps behind her arm and forms a fancy knot.

Another Brit favourite is Rachel Weisz who looked a lot younger than her 45 years in a flattering black Narciso Rodriguez jumpsuit. Rachel is one step ahead of a trend as jumpsuits are set to be big news this season. She also followed the trend of simple hair and barely there makeup which most of the stars seemed to adopted, after all less is more.

Naomi Watts looked picture perfect as she walked the red carpet in a grey, featured number designed by celeb favourite Elie Saab. You can’t fail to notice her sparkling accessories and in particular that beautiful diamond necklace.

Trend Watch: Gilded Gold Eyes. Create Beautiful Makeup!

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Glittery gold gilded eyes were all over the ss15 catwalks and we have seen them popping up all over the place recently. The look is great for adding a touch of sparkle on a night out and is perfect for rocking at a festival. All skin tones can get away with wearing gold toned shades as they will warm up your complexion. Just remember that if you have dark, olive skin you should choose a dark pigmented shadow that is almost bronze. For those of you with fair skin a light yellow gold looks amazing.

Begin by prepping your eyelids with primer to give you a nice smooth surface and make sure that your makeup lasts.

Step two:

Wash over your lids with the shimmery brown shadow really focusing on the crease. Then blend the shadow up towards your brow bone.

Step three:

Take the metallic shadow and press it into the centre of your eyelids.

Step four:

With your fingertips apply the fine gold glitter pieces where you have just pressed on the metallic shadow as well as along the bottom lash line.

Step five:

With the loose gold glitter use a thin eyeliner brush to line your eyes with it. The brush will guarantee that your precision is spot on.

Step six:

To finish the look coat your lashes with two coats of black mascara. For even distribution zigzag the wand from left to right as you brush from the root to the tip of your lashes.

 

 

If you want to try this trend but would prefer a slightly more subtle look then you can choose a lighter more Champagne shade of eye shadow which will give you the same glow but will be more in keeping with the rest of your makeup look.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
