The annual Cannes Film Festival offers some of the world’s most famous faces the chance to show off their most stunning makeup makeovers. But for all the smokey eye contenders, the hottest look at the Cannes Film Festival 2016 takes the shape of a bold, red lip.
Amal Clooney stepped out onto the red carpet sporting bombshell waves and a look-at-me red lip for the premiere of Money Monster. Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart opted to pair her newly bleached tresses with a scarlet pout for the evening premiere of Café Society. Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jordanian journalist Ola Al-Fares couldn’t resist reaching for a burgundy hue ahead of the BFG screening. And on Monday, Spiderman actress Kirsten Dunst arrived on the red carpet wearing a custom Dior gown and a swipe of cherry red lipstick.
If the film festival celebrities’ pouts are any indication, red lipstick is the beauty buy of the moment. Below, our favorite red lips from the French Rivera and the products used to create them.
