Diane Kruger’s Award Winning Beauty

Diane Kruger wins our Palme D’Or for looking the most fabulous throughout the 12 day Cannes Film Festival.

The model-turned-actress, who claims to have no stylist and takes only 45 minutes to get red carpet ready, made jury duty look effortless with her glamorous, yet simple look: a smoky eye, highlighted cheek bones and a natural lip.

How does she do it?

Here is Diane’s beauty routine: ‘I always wash my face with Surgras soap. Then I’ll apply Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion and follow up with Roséliane d’ Uriage cream—it’s the only cream I can use on my sensitive skin.’

‘I don’t like to wear too much makeup so I’ll often just do it myself. I learned all the tricks during my modeling years—like never use foundation all over, just use something to cover imperfections. I prefer to use cover sticks, like Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier.’

‘I have fair skin and blonde hair so I have to keep in mind that some looks can make me seem washed out.I usually go all out on lashes and eyebrows and I love red shades so I tend to go all out on lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of the smoky eye but I also like a fresh and natural look, so it just depends on my mood.’

‘The best beauty advice I was ever given came from my mom: Less is more. I’ve always preferred the natural look.’

Diane’s beauty arsenal:

Kiehls Blue Astringent Herbal
La Roche-Posay Lipikar Surgras Cleansing
Uriage Roseliane
Uriage Makeup Removal

    For me, she is like the Mona Lisa. She is beautifully mysterious with that smile.

    She never looks like she is wearing a lot of make up, perhaps she isn’t. If she is, she does a great job of not making it obvious and either way she always looks stunning.

    She is beautiful no matter what her makeup looks like. I’m in awe.

      Ditto. She’s so pretty that she needs very little makeup. Love her strong jawline.

    No wonder so many designers consider her their “muse”. She’s a beautiful girl, but it’s rare to see a girl who really knows how to take care of her beauty by herself.
