For the majority of the Cannes Film Festival, we're mesmerized by the sea of gorgeous gowns that take over the red carpet night after night. But when we're not being hypnotized by our favourite celebs and L'Oreal muses, we're on trend watch – looking out for the hottest fashion and beauty looks that keep popping up throughout the festival.
The latest trend to hit the red carpet? Extra large lashes and bold liner, of course. The trend was first spotted this season on the spring-summer 2016 catwalks, and now, it's been taken from runway to real life.
For the May 17th premiere of the film Julieta, L'Oreal muses Natasha Poly , Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin, Luma Grothe, Lara Stone , and Bianca Balti adopted their own individual versions of the look, parading around with doll-like lashes and femme fatale-inspired liner.
We're breaking down each look, one by one so that you can get an idea on how to rock the look for yourself!
CANNES DAY 7: ALL ABOUT THE BOLD LINER AND DOLL LASHES
NATASHA POLY: NEGATIVE SPACE CAT EYES
It's no secret that the Russian supermodel Natasha Poly has a genuine fondness for large, doe eyes. Yesterday in Cannes, she showed off a graphic cat eye with negative space, adopting one of this season's hottest beauty trends. To recreate her look, use a black liquid liner and follow along the groove of your upper lid. Stretch the line into a tip at your outer corners, then starting from the end of the point, make a V-shape moving upwards. Stop the line as it begins to run parallel to the arch in your brows.
KARLIE KLOSS: FALSE LASHES
The metallic beauty of the evening completed her daring, yet feminine look with a set of striking set of extra-long false lashes. A thin barely-there line of black liner was also applied to her bottom lash line, allowing the attention to be drawn to her upper lashes. To achieve lashes like Karlie's use Voluminous Superstar mascara that will give you awe-worthy length in just two steps.
LARA STONE: RETRO LASHES
The beautiful Dutch muse Lara Stone adopted not only one trend for her first appearance on the 69th Cannes red carpet, but two: retro lashes and illuminated skin. While her top lashes were intermingled for the appearance of long, full lashes, her lower lashes were spread apart, giving her that Twiggy-esque retro look.
To achieve Lara's look, apply a clear or white iridescent shadow to the inner corners of your eyes. Use a brown pencil to line just below your bottom lashes, and apply mascara moving your hand in a back and forth motion to separate your lashes. Use a volumizing mascara for your top lashes and apply black liner slightly above your upper lashes.
BARBARA PALVIN: DOLL LASHES
Hungarian muse Barbara Palvin appeared doll-like for her red carpet appearance, with fresh, delicate makeup and perfectly long, sculpted lashes. To get the doll-inspired look, use L'Oreal Paris' Voluminous Miss Manga mascara.
