Cannes is not only one of the most popular holiday destinations on the French Riviera, but also, at least once a year, a fashion stronghold. Namely when the Cannes Film Festival takes place. In addition to the Fashion Weeks, the Cannes Film Festival is one of the most important fashion events of the year. So it goes without saying that we are very happy about his comeback – after it was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Celebrities from all over the world do their best to show themselves in their full glory and enchant us with their glamorous looks and outfits. After showing you the latest summer hair trends from the red carpet, we have now prepared another surprise for you! How about spicing up your makeup routine a little and checking out some of the latest makeup trends for 2021, inspired by the 2021 Cannes Film Festival?
Make-up trends 2021: the red lipstick is back in fashion
Even if our lips have been hidden from wearing masks in the past year, our love for them has definitely not diminished! On the contrary, in fact, because flashy and bright lipstick colors are very popular this season. A quick look at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 makes us realize that red lipstick is undoubtedly one of the biggest make-up trends for 2021. That doesn’t surprise us either, because the classic is just right for every woman and can be worn for any occasion. Anyone who has ever worn a red lipstick knows what power they have to immediately give any look a noble touch.
However, not all red is the same, which is why it is very important to find the shade that best suits our skin and hair type. Women with a cool skin undertone can go for burgundy and pink, while nuances such as strawberry, coral or orange-red are more suitable for women with a warm skin undertone. Since the red lipstick is a real eye-catcher in itself, you should keep the rest of your make-up simple and subtle.
Glossy lips are trendy
Matte lipsticks have been all the rage in recent years. But those times are already over and this summer our lips will get a little more shine again! Glossy lips are the new, old makeup trend from the 00s and are making a big comeback this year! The shimmering lips of the stars at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 made the hearts of all fashionistas beat faster and for good reason. The gentle shine ensures a super fresh look and makes our lips look significantly more voluminous and full. For a cool boost effect, you can apply the lip gloss a little over the edge of the lips or highlight the lips with a contrasting lip liner. The only disadvantage: In order for our lips to continue to shimmer, we have to reapply the lip gloss several times during the day.
Make-up trends 2021: glitter gemstones for a touch of glamor
What used to be considered kitschy by stars like Gwen Stefanie and Britney Spears is now actually one of the biggest make-up trends for 2021. Shimmering rhinestones glitter on the eyes of fashion legends and influencers and give our look a modern and playful touch. However, unlike in the past, these are only placed discreetly and strategically and we have to admit that they look surprisingly good and stylish.
The Hollywood stars have also jumped on the trend train and spruced up their looks for the Cannes Film Festival 2021 with the fine rhinestones. The small embellishments have given actress Gemma Chan’s otherwise classic outfit a modern twist. The supermodel also delivered one of her most beautiful looks this year and the rhinestones complemented her beautiful dress perfectly.
With the mask requirement, the focus of make-up in recent months has undoubtedly been on the eye area and eye make-up was allowed to attract a little more attention. For those who are not so into gaudy lipsticks, the following make-up trend for 2021 is exactly the right thing for you! With an eyeliner, our eyes immediately look more expressive and can be perfectly staged. So should it be blue, silver or pink? With a statement eyeliner there are no limits to creativity! Are you tired of the classic cat eye look and would like to try something new? Then you would be in good hands with the Puppy Eyeliner! We recommend that you use a waterproof product so that the eyeliner stays in place all day and does not smear.
Pink eye makeup
And let’s stay with the eye area. This season, the eyes can be set in scene not only with eyeliner, but also with eyeshadow. Shimmering pink tones are particularly popular, as they add a wonderfully fresh note in summer. Pink is often labeled as girly, but the color palette is so huge that there is guaranteed to be something for every taste and style. From a soft pastel pink to bright neon pink, absolutely anything is possible! So don’t be afraid to experiment with the different nuances and give your makeup a little more character.
Black has no place in summer? Not even close! The theme of grunge was already a big hit in the fashion world in winter and will be with us this season as well. Dramatic eyes and dark tones on the lips made for a great change from the natural looks and bright colors during the Cannes Film Festival 2021. The dark and slightly creepy grunge style has something charming and mystical about it and is definitely one of the biggest makeup trends for 2021.
Is it somehow too much for you to put on all black make-up? Then do it like the Canadian model Mikhaila “Coco Rocha” and put the focus on your eyes while you make your lips shine with a neutral lip gloss.
