Some red carpet beauty looks have the power to make you audibly gasp, Gemma Chan at the Cannes Film Festival being a prime example. Dressed in a custom Oscar de la Renta gown, Chan looked breathtaking with her low chignon and glamorous makeup look — complete with two tiny crystals underneath the lash line.
The iconic Val Garland was the makeup artist behind Chan’s luminous look. Using the L’Oreal Paris line (of which Chan is the face) the fresh complexion, soft red lip, fluffy lashed and winged liner paid tribute to classic Hollywood glamour, while the tiny diamanté pairings added a modern edge.
Chan’s hairstylist Stephan Lancien pulled her hair into a soft, romantic low bun, with a few pieces left loose to frame the face.
Chan’s manicure — by Severine Loreal — was also simple but painfully chic. Each nude nail was stamped with a tiny clean black line and diamanté, not dissimilar to those on Chan’s lower lash line. Paired with a larger-than-life Swarovski cocktail ring, it was perfect.
While we’re sad its curtain on Cannes Red Carpet for another year, we’re certainly not short on post-pandemic beauty inspiration.
