Yesterday on the French Riviera, major star power descended on Calvin Klein’s annual Women in Film party at Cannes. There were Oscar winners (Rachel Weisz), supermodels (Natalia Vodianova), fashion darlings (Sienna Miller) and also, Jake Gyllenhaal. (No complaints.)
The Hollywood clique had two things in common: They all wore clothes from Calvin Klein Collection, and they all sported gorgeous, glowing skin without much other makeup.
Even if you’re not on the Hotel du Cap red carpet, you can still get the look yourself.
1. CLEANSE AND TONE.
Use a mild astringent to clear and prime skin without causing irritation. (Our favorite: Toning Lotion with Camomile.)
2. CREATE A FLAWLESS BASE.
If you’ve got naturally smooth, plump skin, mix a small squirt of light-enhancing foundation (like Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation with SPF 15) with Beauty Flash Balm and apply evenly across the face.
If you prefer more coverage on your skin, mix the same foundation with Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch, which fills in fine lines and imperfections, and has beauty bloggers dubbing it “Liquid Photoshop.”
3. HIGHLIGHT CHEEKBONES, BROW BONES, and the BOW OF YOUR LIP.
That’s where light naturally catches your skin. Take Instant Light Brush-On Perfector and gently give them a little more glow. You can also add a touch to the inner corners of your eye using a cotton swab. If you like flushed cheeks, a dab of Multi Blush works, too.
4. SHADE THE EYE.
Spread a swipe of our new creme eyeshadow from the base of the eyelid up to the crease. Use a lighter shade for a totally bare look, and a darker shade for a bit of smoke. Curl lashes.
5. DEFINE THE EYE.
Follow up with a clean swipe on the top and bottom lid of black Be Long mascara, which has a small, flexible applicator for maximum control.
6. FINISH WITH A TINTED LIP BALM.
Instant Light Lip Balm, this party’s for you!
