There’s a distinctive glow about the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival right now. It might be the result of that fresh Atlantic air in the South of France, or perhaps it’s simply the attendees’ collective elation at the return of the iconic event. But a number of the standout beauty looks appear to have one thing in common – their makeup and skin prep came courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury products.

Like many beauty experts and editors, I’ve long believed Charlotte Tilbury makeup products to be amongst the best in the world. The long-lasting formulas are second to none for a radiant, skin-like finish that suits almost everyone, and I’m yet to come across a product of theirs that I haven’t loved. It seems celebrity makeup artists agree, with a number dressing their clients’ complexion with that signature Tilbury glow for Cannes festivities.

First up was Candice Swanepoel, who shone with a peaches and cream complexion via makeup artist Vincent Oquendo. Oquendo detailed the Charlotte Tilbury products that were used to enhance Swanepoel’s natural features on Instagram, including the brand’s Airbrush Flawless Foundation and cult Film Star Bronze And Glow to “contour on her jaw and softly under her cheekbones”.

Oquendo also used Charlotte Tilbury makeup to perfect Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s look for Cannes, sharing on Instagram that the her softly incandescent eye makeup was created with the brand’s Eyes To Mesmerize cream eyeshadow in the shade Champagne and set with the Walk Of No Shame Eyeshadow Palette.

Even Adam Driver received the Tilbury treatment, with grooming by Amy Komorowski using brand’s Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial, Magic Cream, Magic Serum Crystal Elixir, and Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir to prep his skin ahead of the big event.

We officially need all of the above, and in undoubtedly the best piece of news? Charlotte Tilbury products are finally landing in Australia! While the brand has been available online for some time, the luxury range will be stocked exclusively in MECCA stores from September this year.

So now your shopping list is sorted and there’s zero need to travel to obtain that Cannes coastal glow.
