L’Oreal’s beautiful ambassador Julianne Moore was chic as ever on the Cannes red carpet in Louis Vuitton opting for soft subtle shades which enhanced her features.

Here’s how to get her flawless skin. First her skin was prepped with L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer. This product will melt across your skin and create a smooth surface for the rest of your makeup to adhere to.

To even out skin tone with a light coverage foundation, L’Oreal’s Lumi Magique Foundation C4 Rose Beige was applied using a flat brush to dot the product across her cheeks, chin, nose and forehead.

Then blend and buff the dots until full coverage is achieved.

Get The Look: Blake Lively’s Cannes Couture Makeup

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.

Get The Look: Rihanna’s Glowing Met Gala Makeup

"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.
