These looks from Cannes 2019 Are Too Hot to Handle

This year, in addition to regulars like Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, and Sonam Kapoor, the Cannes Film Festival saw participation from first-timers like Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Diana Penty, Huma Qureshi and Hina Khan. These celebs are sending out glam vibes that are too hot to handle. We decode some of these for you:

Deepika’s Bold Eye Makeup
Deepika’s theatrical white gown with an enormous black bow hit a dramatic note. The feisty look would not be complete without the graphic eye makeup the diva sported with much aplomb.

Priyanka’s Classic Eye Makeup
For her debut outing at the Cannes, Priyanka teamed up her sparkly Roberto Cavalli gown with huge chandelier earrings and a minimalistic look that focussed on accentuating her eyes the classic way.

You can get this classic winged liner look with:

  • The 2-in-1 brow highlighter and eye liner from MyGlamm for creating the perfect winged liner effect along the upper lash line and accentuating the brows.
  • A subtle yet shiny eyeshadow like the Ruby’s Organic Stellar for inner eye strobing.
  • Maybelline Taupe eyeshadow for a nude effect on the eyelids.
  • Mascara and a hint of kajal to accentuate the shape of the eyes.

Aishwarya’s Golden Glow
A Cannes veteran, Aishwarya Rai knows how to make heads turn during her red carpet appearances year after year. This time around she did it by showing up in a golden mermaid avatar. The beauty queen pulled off a monotone all-gold look without making it appear monotonous.

Aishwarya’s all-gold makeup choice makes a perfect fit for Indian ethnic looks. Recreate it with a sheen-effect highlighter like the Faces Canada Make Me Shine and contouring the cheekbones and jawline with Sugar Contour De Force Gold Glory.

Kangana’s Retro Hair
Kangana Ranaut dazzled in a gold Kanjeevaram saree worn with a corset and gloves. The cherry on top her off-beat look was her retro hairdo, which she wore to perfection.

The next time you wear a saree, complete the look with a similar retro hairstyle. Here’s how:

  • Tie freshly blow-dried hair into a low bun, leaving out a chunk of hair in the front.
  • Part this loose portion of hair to a side and create soft circles using slim curling iron like this one from Babyliss.
  • Hold the curls together with small bobby pins and set the hairdo with a holding hair spray like Giovanni L.A. Hold Hair Spritz.

Diana Penty’s Luscious Red Lips
Diana Penty chose a pristine white saree gown for her maiden appearance and looked every bit the ethereal beauty she is. The clear highlight of her look was her luscious red lips that stood out in an otherwise dainty appearance.

Sonam’s Glossy Lips
Sonam Kapoor channelized her inner oomph and style at the prestigious film festival, like every other year. While Maharani-esque ensemble made headlines, we loved the elegance of her royal blue ruffled gown which is juxtaposed with an understated look. The one element that stood out in Sonam’s minimalistic makeup was her choice of glossy lips.
