Spring 2016's call to individuality initially made its way into our wardrobes in the form of '90s grunge-inspired pieces, and street-appropriate lingerie. Now, it's made its way into our beauty routines through daring new hair cuts, brazen dashes of glitter, and unexpected colour palettes. From metallics at the Met Gala to bangs, bobs, and buzz cuts on the catwalk, it's safe to say this year's beauty trends are anything but predictable, celebrating the individual needs and preferences of each person, and making red carpet appearances that much more interesting.
With one week until the opening night of the 69th Cannes Film Festival, we're getting excited to see which beauty trends our favourite celebs will adopt. With the wide selection of unconventional beauty trends on the market, we may not be able to predict exactly what celebs will go for, but we can dream!
From fiery red lips to glitter shadow, here are the beauty trends we hope to see on the Cannes red carpet:
A true red carpet must-have, red lipstick is (and always has been), an emblem of glamour. And due to its international reputation, The Cannes Film Festival is the perfect place for stars to adopt that classic, old Hollywood appeal. Even better, red lips were a main attraction on the spring 2016 runways, turning heads at Dolce & Gabbana, Acne Studios, and Nina Ricci. We can't wait to find out if our favourite celebs will take on this bold, eye-catching look!
Strobing – a technique that has been popping up in the beauty market (and the red carpet) of late, is one makeup trend we'd love to see light up celebs faces on the Cannes red carpet. Whether it's eye strobing, cheek strobing or simply highlighting, the sun of the French Riviera coupled with the Meditteranean Sea is sure to give stars an enviable, radiant glow.
Although the Cannes Film Festival is known to be a classic and highly glamorous event, you can always count on edgy stars like Barbara Palvin to add a little colour and whimsy to the red carpet. From blue and pink shadow to glitter lids and lips, we wouldn't expect anything less when it comes to this year's red carpet.
From choppy bangs to twisted braids and bobs, this year's catwalks saw an array of hair cuts and styles made to suit the individual, leaving us to believe the edgy looks will make their way to Cannes. What beauty trends do you hope to see on the Cannes red carpet?
