Makeup Lessons From The Cannes 2022


Talented makeup artists churn out look after look at the Cannes every year, and 2022 was no different. We got to see celebs carry a range of makeup looks from contemporary classics to vintage modern looks with elan. And aspiring makeup artists from all around the world have been taking notes.

Cannes 2022 Makeup Looks

Whether you’re a professional, a freelance makeup artist, a student who just enrolled in a makeup artist course, or someone who’s simply passionate about makeup, you could take a few makeup lessons from the Cannes. Here are a few you cannot miss.

Five Makeup Lessons From the Cannes 2022

     . THE Double Cleansing Routine for Plumper Skin

Celebrity makeup artist Divya Behl swears by double cleansing before a big event like the Cannes. She suggests using an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup, followed up by a water-based cleanser to remove any residue. In fact, she says the routine after double cleansing is just as important. Her mantra? First, put on Vitamin C, followed by niacinamide or hyaluronic acid.

So, the next time you want plump, youthful skin before D-day, you know which hack to use.

. Ditch the Foundation and Make Your Tinted Moisturizer

If you need concealer to smoothen out your blemishes, you probably know how cakey they can get after a while. Why not use this trick from Anne Hathaway’s Cannes makeup artist Florrie White the next time around? Mix your concealer with a lightweight moisturizer so that it can glide over your skin easily. This way, you can mimic Anne Hathaway’s flawless makeup base without the fuss of figuring out just the right formulation.

. Highlight Your Eyes

If you want your eyes to look as big and bright as the iconic Julia Roberts on the Cannes red carpet, this 3-second trick might be just what you’re looking for! Dab the highlighter on your brow bone, inner corner of your eyes, and the center of the lid, and voila!


. Sculpt them cheeks

Tamannah Bhatia’s plum-toned cheekbones have been the talk of the town ever since the actress walked on the red carpet. French makeup artist Florian Hurel reveals that the key to nailing this look is using a blush rather than a contour to add definition.

He stresses adding a gentle swipe of a cool-toned contour and placing the blush liberally right above it. To make the cheekbones pop, he suggests using a highlighting concealer that complements the shade and blends them out. Who thought sculpting cheekbones could be that easy! Not us!

Hold Your Makeup in Place

The secret to makeup that lasts long, believe it or not, is mattifying powder. Even Phophie Mathias, Dior’s makeup artist for Cannes 2022, agrees. The makeup artist reveals most high-profile actresses set their makeup with mattifying powder before walking the red carpet.

So, the next time you go out and about, don’t forget to add gentle brushstrokes of mattifying powder over your makeup. Don’t want to add an extra layer of material? Carry a pad of mattifying papers to absorb excess sebum instead!
