Steal the Look: Aishwarya Rai's Makeup at Cannes Film Festival 2008

Earlier today at the Cannes Film Festival, Aishwarya Rai walked down the red carpet with Eva Longoria. We haven't seen much of Aish lately but she made an entrance and her makeup looks wonderful....its nothing crazy or new, but she always look great with a smoky eye and nude lip. Here's her makeup breakdown:

Eyes: Aish has on shimmery taupe and gold shadows surrounded by tons of black liner and black mascara. Apply MAC Cream Colour Base in Fawntastic all over the lid to make the powder shadow adhere. Apply a shimmery light gold-beige shadow such as MAC Shadow in Retrospeck from the inner corners of the eyelid to the middle of the eyelid and apply a slightly darker shimmery gold shadow such as MAC Shadow in Soba from the middle of the eyelid to the outercorners. Apply a muted taupe brown shadow such as MAC Shadow in Charcoal Brown to the crease of the eyelid. Blend shadows together well. Apply an ivory shadow such as MAC Shadow in Dazzlelight to the brow bones as a highlight.

Finish the eyes by using a thick black liner such as Benefit BadGal Eyeliner all around the eyes. Smoke the eyes into the shadow using an eyeshadow brush or a shadow smudger. Top the first line with another layer of black liner. Finish with thick volumizing black mascara such as Cover Girl LashBlast Mascara.

Cheeks: Aish has on a peachy-nude colored blush that blends into her skin. Apply a similar color such as MAC Blush in Tenderling to apples of the cheeks. Apply a highlighting powder such as Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Luna to the cheekbones.

Lips: Aish has on a nude pink gloss but her lips are still accentuated. To draw out the shape, line lips first with a nude lipliner such as MAC Cremestick Liner in Honey B. Finish with a nude pink gloss such as MAC Plushglass in Big Baby.
