That Aishwarya Rai is one of the most beautiful women in the world is no secret! The actress, who first shot to international fame when she was crowned Miss World in 1994, has made the world envious with her beauty year after year, appearance after appearance. At Cannes this year, Aishwarya stood out once again, with her look on Day 2 being my personal favourite. Ash paired a gorgeous Elie Saab gown with winged liner and a deep red lip. Read on for a step-by-step on how to feel like a Cannes Queen yourself!

  1. Use a deep repair cream all over the face and particularly around the eyes. This will prevent your skin from looking dull and tired.Mac Studio sculpt
  2. Next, prime your skin for foundation, focussing on the t-zone in particular. This step ensures that your foundation sits much more evenly on your skin. Go for a medium to full coverage foundation.

  3. Take a light gold eyeshadow, sweeping it over the entire eyelid. This is just to give the eyes a subtle pop. Use a cool brown shade (or even a little bit of your bronzer) to gently define your socket.

  4. As L’oreal’s brand ambassador, Aishwarya used the Loreal liquid superliner in black to achieve the perfect wing. For this look, elongate the wing outwards and upwards to create a dramatic effect.

  5. Follow up with lashings of mascara on the upper lashes and give the bottom lashes a light-handed coat.

  6. Go for a natural blush, as the focus points of the look are the eyes and the lip.Loreal La Palette

  7. Now comes my favourite part – the lips. Aishwarya’a makeup artist mixed two different shades from the L’oreal La Paletter lip set in red. First, apply the orange all over and then go over with the darkest shade. This technique adds dimension to the colour and gives your look that extra oomph.
