Deepika to Aishwarya: A Roundup Of The Best Cannes Makeup Look Over The Years

The Met Gala is a hard act to follow in terms of show-stopping beauty and fashion moments. But if any red carpet is up to the challenge, it’s the Cannes Film Festival. Heavily steeped in glamour, the event has been a historic focus point within the industry since 1939, and the film, fashion, and beauty momentum has only marinated in intensity over the past 80 years. (Lucky us, right?)

With B-town beauties all set to make stunning appearances in the 2022 edition of the Cannes Film Festival, we take you down memory lane to some of the most breathtaking makeup moments they have wowed us with thus far. When it comes to representing the homeland on the international stage, our desi girls leave no stone unturned to make heads turn. As we look forward to another year of glam revelry, join us in journeying back in time to Bollywood’s most iconic beauty looks that have sparkled under the marquee lights of the Cannes red carpet. 

The Only Bollywood-Approved Beauty Looks You Need To See From The Cannes Film Festival

Who’s Got The Blue

Our very own desi girl wore pale blue eyeliner, so can bet we’re going out to buy some of the pastel shade for ourselves. PeeCee took her eye makeup up a notch with this look.

Bow Down To The Queen!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan spiced up regular black liner with gold on top of it and lots and lots of lip gloss. We like the way her gold-tinted brown lip gloss brings out the gold glitter placed on her eyelids. It’s all very glamorous, isn’t it?

Retro Rewind

Remember that old-school glam we keep referring to time and again? Yes, this is it. Kangana’s black saree was freakin’ stunning but it was her hair and makeup that stole the damn show. Her makeup look was giving off major retro-vibes and its safe to say that this glamm look still sits well with us.

Ain’t No Body Like My Desi Girl

Priyanka Chopra Jonas gave the regular cat eye a super stylish negative-space update, and now we know what eye makeup look we’re trying next. The liner was complimented with her trademark plum-hued pout and we’re still awestruck.

Go Big Or Go Home

Deepika Padukone wore one of our favourite beauty looks of them all. Her smokey eye makeup looked hella gorgeous and complimented her loud and dramatic dress. This was undoubtedly one of the must-see beauty looks that still lives in our heads rent-free!

Shine Bright!

Hina Khan’s makeup look was about glow, glow, and more glow. We loved the way her defined brows, coral lips, and full lashes brought forth a strong framing element to her otherwise soft and dewy look. The bold silver dress teamed up with a matching silver eyeshadow was a modern and futuristic take on old-school glamour.

Totally Effortless

Sonam Kapoor’s makeup look was all about enhancing her features. Look closely – and you’ll see that her bronzer and blush were placed strategically in the hollows of her cheekbones, jawline, and temples, in order to spotlight her over-achieving features.

The One That Reached Viral Status

Deepika Padukone gave us a lesson in a superhigh, sci-fi ponytail, and damn, we’re in love.  She won the award for most dramatic hair and makeup ( so far at least). Her sculptural high-pony and graphic black underliner made for an extremely eye-catching look – as did her giant ruffled black-and-white gown.
