Escape to the French Riviera, for a fleeting moment, and revisit the high-shine hair and statement red lip of 2019’s Cannes Film Festival
In the absence of the 73rd annual Cannes Film Festival, which was originally due to take place this week, we’re returning to the glamour of the 2019 festival and revisiting the beauty looks that are still inspiring us today. Ever since its inception in 1939, the Cannes Film Festival has been a playground for haute couture dresses, high jewels and head-turning beauty spotted on Hollywood’s most acclaimed stars. A sequence of photocalls, parties and premieres has seen the fashion and beauty become just as noteworthy as the celebrated cinema; the glorious gowns and glittering make-up looks, will therefore, be poignantly missed in 2020.
Cue a montage of 2019’s best beauty moments to relive and recreate, if you’re feeling fanciful. From Winnie Harlow’s dramatic sultry lashes and shimmering amethyst eye shadow to Elle Fanning’s ethereal flower-plaited hair and fresh-face beauty, last year revealed an array of makeup-up and hair to swoon over. Margot Robbie’s take on Sharon Tate’s loose braids is a simple, free-spirited summer hair style to recreate, while Florence Pugh’s messy, yet elevated bun offers the ultimate WFH look to aspire to. If you want to master the graphic eyeliner trend, draw inspiration from Priyanka Chopra, Karen Wazen and Selena Gomez, and for the perfect feline flick look to Jessica Kahawaty. The biggest beauty takeaway from the Cannes 2019? The classic rouge lip and slicked back hair. Scroll through the gallery above and dream of the Cannes beauty that might have been.
