Makeup: Naomi Watts At The ‘For The Love Of Cinema’ Event At The Cannes Film Festival

Gallic glamour at Cannes! Georgie Eisdell worked with Naomi Watts for the For the Love of Cinema event at The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 19th, 2013 in Cannes, France. The inspiration for the look? “For Naomi, I wanted to keep her makeup fresh with a little French influence.” I love the minimalist look save for a bright lip. Here, the beauty breakdown.

“I prepped her skin with La Mer Regenerating Serum and then La Mer Soft Cream. To even out her skin tone and create a flawless base, I used CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Skin Perfecting Makeup, taking the edge of the shine with La Mer The Powder.  For a little color and contour to her face with Bobbi brown Bronzer in Medium , and finally I added illumination to the skin with CHANEL Mouche De Beaute Poudre Illuminating Powder.
On her cheeks I used Bobbi Brown Cream Blush in Pale Pink to create depth and a flushed cheek. Then for a pop of color i added a wash of Laura Mercier Second Skin Color in Lotus Pink to the apples of the cheeks.”
“For Naomi’s eyebrows I wanted to keep them soft but structured so I used Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Blonde and extended the brows slightly to shape the face.
I kept the lids very light but illuminated. I used MAC Amber Lights Eyeshadow on the lash line blending up just a little to give a beautiful highlight. I then brought a little of the shadow under her eye to open them up.  Naomi has beautiful eyes so I wanted to enhance the shape so I used MAC Carbon Eyeshadow, dampening my eyeliner brush so the shadow would turn into a soft liner and give the eye definition and depth. I lined the eye on the outer corner and gave the ends a slight flick for a flirtatious finish to the eye.  I finished the eye off with two layers of YSL Faux Cil Mascara in Black.
“Her lips were the main focus of this look. I used CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Sensuelle for a gorgeous raspberry pout.

Is Naomi Watts’ makeup look one you’d recreate this summer?
