Cannes Film Festival 2022: The Best Beauty Looks on the Red Carpet

All of the most stunning makeup looks from the red carpet.

After two years of Covid-related restrictions, Cannes Film Festival is back with a bang for 2022. Now its 75th year, the prestigious occasion, which previews new films of all genres, has welcomed some of the world’s biggest stars to the French Riviera.

No matter what gives Cannes its almighty cultural treasure, one thing is for sure: the perfect storm of Riviera sunshine and full prestige means the celebrities on the red carpet always carry their most glamorous picks to hit at the festival.

The best beauty looks on the Cannes 2022 in particular are exciting combinations of personal styles that incorporate many of today’s trends – think current hair colour trends with classic updos, subversive styles and seasonal chic makeup.

Here, enjoy a close-up of the breathtaking hair and make-up looks on the Cannes Film Festival’s red carpet.


Eva wore fierce eye makeup and black eyeliner with wings and a bit of smoky kohl on the lower lash line. The rest of her face is flushed and bronzed, with bright pale pink lips and brown eyeliner adding the finishing touch.


Hathaway’s beauty look was simple, elegant and paired perfectly with the high-stakes outfit. Flawless skin, a shimmering eye, fluffy brows and her signature blow-dry and heavy-set bangs.


Elsa Hosk brought drama to the red carpet with this architectural up-do paired with her signature glam: a muted pink lip and feline liner.


Kaia Gerber’s loose hairstyle was a “1990s throwback to Cannes,” explained her hairstylist, Halley Brisker. It was complemented by soft makeup by Chanel artist Nina Park and puffed eyebrows.


The supermodel looked like a modern version of Tchaikovsky’s Odette, bringing serious drama to the Chopard Loves Cinema gala with her gently-winged liner, bouncy bow-wrapped ponytail, and moody, gelled bangs.


Alicia Vikander looked sleek and shimmering on the Cannes red carpet. She paired her intricate, metallic bronze gown with a soft smoky eye and a cool, brushed-back topknot. She wore a radiant makeup look courtesy of celebrity stylist Kelly Cornwall.


Elle wore her hair side-parted with loose curls that framed her face. To keep the hairstyle in place, she opted for a hairpin with a crystal bowl, which added a special touch to the look. The look was complemented with a classic and powerful winged eyeliner and dark pink lips, which were the perfect complement to her outfit.


The supermodel looked gorgeous in Cannes bronzed make-up, red lips and a messy up-do coupled with her incredible Chopard earrings and necklace.
