We love the elegance and glamour that celebs bring to the Cannes red carpet and this year was no different! With so many stunning dresses and gorgeous beauty looks it was tough to pick out a favourite. But our winner ended up being the beautiful Eva Longoria who wore a stunning Marchesa dress. Though, it was her makeup look that really had us swooning. We love the bold coloured winged liner looks she loves to play with and this one was just as pretty. A pretty glitter blue cat eye with contoured cheeks and a nude lip. It's something we'd definitely want to try for a glam evening out. So check out how we recreated this makeup look with mineral makeup below!
Eva Longoria's 2017 Cannes Makeup Look
To get Eva Longoria's gorgeously full-yet-natural-looking eyebrows, start by brushing through your brows with a Spoolie Brush. If there are few particularly stubborn, unruly hairs our little trick is to scrape our Spoolie Brush on a bar of soap and then run it through the hairs. This helps to set any stragglers in place without setting the brow completely.
Follow this by drawing your dramatic winged liner just above it with the Jeweled Eye Pencil in Cobalt.
To really get that sparkle that Eva Longoria achieves, dip your Camouflage Brush into Dust 24k in Silver. (If there is no remaining eyeshadow primer on the brush, re-apply the tiniest amount to help the product stick to your brush.) Then pack this highlighter powder carefully on top of your eyeshadow pencil and into the inner corners of the lid to really make your eye makeup dazzle.
Going back to your Precise Micro Eyeliner, line your waterline with this black eyeliner. For added dramatic effect you can apply this eyeliner very closely to the lower lash line and smudge out a little with a Smudge Brush for the ultimate smokey eye look.
To recreate Eva Longoria's simultaneously contoured and strobed skin, you will first need your contour palette and a Contour/Highlight Brush. Using the round end of the brush, apply the darker shades to the hollows of your cheekbones, across your forehead, down the sides of your nose and along your jawline and chin.
What's more, remember that when choosing a contour shade, it should be two shades darker than your complexion.
For that gorgeous highlight, get your Dust 24k and the shade that will most suit your skin tone. Then taking a Fan Brush, sweep it just above your cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose for that ultra-glowy skin look.
We like to then blend our blusher into the apples of our cheeks, after our highlighter application, so that the highlight blends into the look and appears more natural.
For her lips, Eva Longoria went for a pretty matte pinky-nude. You can recreate this shade with the Suede Matte Crayon in Demure.
