The 2019 Cannes Film Festival has OVER-delivered on beauty inspo
We’re seeing stars!

The Cannes Film Festival is without a doubt one of the ritziest celeb events of the year.
It attracts not just the screen stars who feature in the films, but a throng of other celebrities from across other industries. Actors, supermodels, musicians – you’ll see them all at Cannes.
And when the celebs descend on France’s coastal town of Cannes for 11 days of film premieres (and parties!), they do so knowing full well that the world is watching. As such, they always bring their beauty A-game.
For that reason, the red carpet looks at Cannes are always next-level.
Here’s what the 2019 Cannes red carpet has served up so far:
When it comes to nailing red carpet beauty, Priyanka Chopra is a total pro. At first blush, you could be forgiven for thinking she’s wearing a standard winged eyeliner look. But look a little closer and you’ll see she’s got some kind of artistic graphic liner situation going on. Paired with a berry lip, this look is absolute perfection.
Portuguese model/actress Sara Sampaio is sending out serious rock ‘n’ roll signals with this slick ‘do. We’re loving the slightly quiffed front section, which gives an edge to this otherwise ultra-pretty look.
Does Taylor Hill ever look anything less than flawless? Her curly hair is causing us some serious hair envy over here at Beauty Crew HQ! For her makeup, she’s gone for a smoky bronze eyeshadow look and that’s a resounding ‘YES’ from us.
Elle Fanning looked pretty as a picture in this ultra-feminine look. The colourful flowers woven through her milkmaid braid add a super whimsy touch and we’re very into it. As for her makeup, she’s kept it pretty low-key but has added a flourish of delicate glitter across her eyelids and cheekbones. Yeah, we love her.
And here is Elle Fanning again because wow. The American actress never fails to stun and this elegant look has us musing that if Alice in Wonderland grew up, this is exactly what she’d look like. Her pale peach lip paired with some of the best winged eyeliner we’ve seen at Cannes is exactly what our red carpet dreams are made of.
Elsa Hosk arrived at the screening of A Hidden Life looking like some kind of ethereal princess from another world. We didn’t expect to see a bouffant on the red carpet anytime soon, but we are loving Elsa’s subtle, modern nod to the ‘50s, and her braided hairband. She’s kept her makeup low-key, letting her natural beauty shine through.
Danish model Josephine Skriver went all-out glamazon for the La Belle Epoque screening. She is after all a Victoria’s Secret Angel, and boy, did she look the part! From her smoky eye, loosely swept-up bun and lashings of black mascara, we love it all.
