Aishwarya Rai was one of the first Bollywood celebs to ever grace the Cannes Film Festival. It’s been 20 years since, and the former Miss World who was considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the world has never disappointed when it comes to making heads turn.
Each year, Aishwarya has had hits and misses on the fashion front, but there’s no denying that her hair and makeup looks have been nothing but inspiring and OTT. Here are some of my favourite beauty moments of Aish on the Cannes red carpet.
Aishwarya’s 2023 Cannes Look
This year, Aishwarya’s makeup look was as classic as it gets. She wore silver eyeshadow with black liner to match her dress and then a statement red lip that made an impact.
To ace winged eyeliner like Aishwarya, the POPxo Makeup Collection Liquid Eyeliner Kit – Eye Gotchu is a great choice.
Her Cinderella Moment
I will never forget Aishwarya Rai in that ice blue gown with the most stunning minimal makeup look. While her dress stole the show, it was those shimmery lids with smokey winged liner and that blurry brown lipstick that left me floored.
The Simply Nam Rosenyn – Toasted Caramel Hydrating Lip Butter is a very similar lip shade and buttery smooth to glide on.
Aishwarya In Diva Mode
With an even more dramatic outfit and a monochrome makeup look to match, this beauty look was another winner and high on shine. Aishwarya wore shimmery pink eyeshadow with winged eyeliner and a glossy pink lip.
The POPxo Makeup Collection Lip Gloss Kit – Glazed is perfect to get that high-shine lip.
Her Butterfly Metamorphosis
Aishwarya wore a gown that was inspired by a butterfly and she took the theme a step further by wearing sequins on her eyes over winged eyeliner to match her dress. She also paired that creative eye makeup with a bold red lip.
For iconic red lips like Aishwarya, the iconic M.A.C Retro Matte Lipstick – Ruby Woo is a safe choice.
The Moment She Stole The Show
With a chic and sleek bun and coral red lips with coral blush, this beauty look is one of my favourites. Aishwarya really smashed it out of the ballpark with her hair pulled back into a sleek bun, flushed coral cheeks and rosy red lips.
Coral blush is very flattering on Indian skin tones and the Benefit Cosmetics ChaCha Tint is a cult-favourite product to fall back on.
Her Iconic LBD Look
One of my earliest memories of Aishwarya at Cannes is this look and it reminds me why she is and always has been one of the most beautiful women in the world. The way she paired silver eyeshadow and nude lips with smokey kohl has set the bar high for all of us. And her voluminous blowout has another fan base all together!
The Gush Eye Like Options Black Felt Tip Liner & Kohl Pencil helps get that sultry eye look.
Aishwarya’s Lehenga Makeup
When Aishwarya wore a lehenga to Cannes back in 2003, she did her makeup in the most classic way. Her exact look is back in trend today. She wore lots of blush with smokey kohl and loads of gloss, all big trends today thanks to GenZ!
The TAC – The Ayurveda Co. Beetroot Pink Lip & Cheek Tint is super pigmented and perfect to achieve a similar look.
The Purple Lip Statement
Who can forget Aishwarya’s daring purple lipstick moment? Admittedly there were many mixed reviews (and memes) about this look, but she slayed it, and it’s going down in history!
If you’re looking to experiment with purple lipstick, the MyGlamm LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick – Swipe Right is just the ticket.
I’m a total fan of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s beauty looks at Festival De Cannes and can’t wait to see what more she puts forth on the red carpet!
