Bollywood actress, Sonam Kapoor, was a vintage delight in a billowing Elie Saab Couture gown for the screening of ‘The Homesman’ during Cannes Film Festival.

The L’Oréal Paris ambassador walked the red carpet working a faux bob ‘do with flapper girl waves. Mixing the eras, Sonam opted for a 60s makeup inspiration with bold red lips and heavy lush lashes.

Her ‘Great Gatsby’ hairdo help pulled the vintage look together. So take your hairstyle cues from the star and master her vintage updo in just a few steps.

Step 1: First section the crown into a triangular shape with a defined side part. Next, wrap this section around a small-barrelled curling iron, holding it a forward angle and securing each curl with a pin.

Step 2: Curl the remainder of your hair into loose curls. There’s no need to pin down these curls.

Step 3: Remove the hair clips from the top and brush out the curls into an S-wave pattern.

Step 4: For long hair, gather strands into a low ponytail and twist into a faux bob.

Step 5: For a finishing touch, spritz on some hairspray for extra hold and accessorize with a jewelled hairband just above the eyebrows for the flapper girl look.

There you have it. Sonam’s vintage ‘do right at your fingertips. To complete this look add a pop of red to your lips and a generous coat of mascara for a touch of extra drama.

Zoe Saldana looked every inch the L’Oréal Paris spokesperson for the Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony with her hair set in pretty side-swept waves and her makeup consisting of a delicate cat eye and bright red lips.

Here’s how to get her look.

The Base: Prep your skin by applying a dewy primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup to adhere to. Next use a flat brush to dab foundation across your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead and blend until full coverage is achieved.

Take hold of Zoe’s healthy looking glow by applying highlighter across both sides of your face in the shape of a ‘3.’ A hit of colour underneath the cheekbones will also enhance the contouring effect. L’Oréal’s True Match blush in Rosewood is the perfect match to Zoe’s rosy cheeks to bring warmth to your beauty finish.

The Eyes: For Zoe’s sultry cat eye makeup, start with a wash of bronze eyeshadow across the base of your eyelids. Then using a black liquid eyeliner, trace a thin line across your upper and lower lash line. Continue the line from your upper lash line finishing in a slightly upward-angled straight line. Finish the look with a couple of coats of mascara.

The Lips: Complete your beauty look with a swipe of red lipstick for an effortlessly glamorous finish.

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.

Beauty Trend Spotting Side-Swept Bangs

Whether you’re growing out a cut or ready for a seasonal change, side-swept bangs are the way to go.

Celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Michelle Obama, Gia Coppola, and Amber Valletta are all setting the tone for this trend. It’s a look that suits any age and face shape, so why not give it a try?

Start by parting your hair directly above the arch of the eyebrow on your preferred side.

The key to mastering the swoop is to part the hair at an angle, working towards the center of the crown. Start at the roots and brush the bangs forward while pushing strands towards the ear as you approach the ends.

Complete the look with John Frieda Extra Strength Six Effects + Serum to tame strands and fight frizz away.
