L’Oréal Paris ambassador, Blake Lively made her debut on the Cannes red carpet wearing a gorgeous burgundy Gucci Première gown, followed by two more stunning looks by Chanel Couture and Gucci Première again.

Here’s how to get her look. The actress wore a shimmering gunmetal rendition of the smokey eye look with a smouldering finish. I just loved her flawless base, lush lashes and sultry eyeliner. So take your beauty cues from Blake and master her bold smokey eye by applying the below.

Start by applying an eye makeup primer to your eyelids for long-lasting coverage. Follow by covering your eyelids and inner corners of your eyes with a base coat that matches your skin tone which will make blending your colours easier.

Using a small eyeshadow blending brush apply a deep gunmetal shade at the corners and along the lower lashline, blending along the way. It’s important to apply it as close to the lash line as possible – applying it to the edges is key to getting the perfect result.

Using a kohl pencil, line your upper and lower lashline while using a smudge brush to smudge the corners accentuating the shape of your eyes.

Apply two or three generous coats of mascara for an extra dramatic look.

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsCelebrity makeup artist Mylah Morales was inspired by Rihanna’s Stella McCartney midriff baring ensemble to create her beauty look.

She first prepped her skin with the vbeaute Buying Time Everyday Crème which she used all over her face.

Next, she used the vbeaute Undercover Agent as a primer to minimize redness, reduces fine lines, and smooth her skin for makeup application.

She focused on giving Rihanna a strong, straight brow by using a dark brow pencil to fill in sparse areas and then finishing off with a brow crème to keep it in place.

She then used a dark bronzer underneath her cheekbones to contour and applied a highlighter directly on the cheek area for a beautiful, natural glow.

She used a taupe-colored shadow all over her lids and lined her eyes with black liner.

To complete the look, she gave her a hint of color with a lilac shade on her lips.

The Cast Of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" Lights The Empire State Building In Honor Of Be Amazing Volunteer DayThe fringed hairstyle is picking up momentum this season as many celebs are deciding to frame their face with perfectly chopped strands.

Emma Stone leads the pack by showing constant versatility with her bangs. We went straight to the source to find out how her bangs never end up looking dull.

Emma’s hairstylist, Mara Roszak, told us that the key to achieving such versatile bangs is to keep the cut on the longer side, creating a tousled look that has amazing movement.

To get Emma’s look ask your stylist for a thick bang that is longer on the side which will softly frame the face.

Think Olivia Newton-John or Jane Birkin. The 70’s played a big role in the inspiration for Emma’s cut, a time when bangs were worn longer and drew attention to the eyes. While at home you can style bangs down or to the side with the Sedu Revolution Nano Tourmaline Iocic Styling Iron.

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsFashion Designer and TV Personality, Nicole Richie dazzled in more ways than one on the red carpet of the 2014 Met Gala.

The lavender haired beauty opted for an elegant sage-colorred Donna Karan Atelier gown for the evening’s festivities.

Upon looking at her dress and vibrant hair, celebrity makeup artist, Beau Nelson was reminded of an oceanic goddess. The soft accents of her dress and hair inspired Beau to create a look featuring soft shimmers and delicate tones.

“I accented Nicole’s features with subtle highlighting and touches of glitter to complement her teal dress and colorful hair,” says Beau.

Using an array of NYX cosmetics, here is exactly how you can achieve this effortless yet super color look yourself:

Face (complexion): Beau wanted the skin to be multi-dimensional and achieved the look using NYX Cosmetics Mineral Stick Foundation in a variety of tan shades. He concentrated a lighter shade of foundation (Golden Beige) in the center of the cheeks and face and used darker shades (Cool Tan, Warm Tan) on the other perimeter of the face. Using multiple tones on the skin allows for a more contoured and shapely effect to the face.

Cheeks: To further define and enhance Nicole’s face shape, Beau swept NYX Cosmetics Highlight and Contour Powder under her cheekbones. He proceeded by dusting a touch of NYX Cosmetics Baked Blush in Foreplay for a hint of color along the tops of her cheekbones and the Cupid’s bow above her lips.

To achieve that metallic goddess-like glow, Beau applied NYX Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid in Sunbeam along the same areas.

Eyes: To keep with the softness of the full look, Beau applied the soft russet shades from the NYX Cosmetics The Natural Shadow Palette to her eye lids. To frame the eyes, he applied two cats of NYX Cosmetics Lush Lashes Mascara and a pair of NYX Cosmetics Fabulous Lashes in Nirvana for added volume. For an unexpected tough of added glamour, Beau applied a transparent glitter atop the eye shadow for an ethereal and luxurious finish.

Lips: Keeping with the shimmery oceanic inspirations, Beau topped the look with NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Spirit—a pink nude tone that perfectly complemented her radiant makeup look.
