GET THE LOOK: Aishwarya Rai's Blue Smoky Eyes at the Cannes 2016 Red Carpet

Hello everyone,

This is my first celebrity inspired makeup. Yes, I haven’t tried any celebrity inspired makeup before because I was too afraid, actually still I am. I am a complete novice when it comes to doing makeup and that’s what kept me away from doing celebrity inspired looks.
But this time I had to, because I had promised a friend that I’ll start doing celebrity inspired looks soon and first one will be Aishwarya Rai’s Cannes 2016 look. Thanks Manali for the push.

So as we all know that the L’Oreal muse, at the premiere of Slack Bay (Ma Loute), paired her stunning embellished, golden dress with cobalt blue eyes that made for quite an interesting contrast.

I have tried recreating this look today, but keeping my comfort in mind, I have come up with a more wearable version.

So here it goes.


My foundation is L'OREAL PARIS Infallible Matte Foundation in shade Porcelain. I don’t know if it is because of Aishwarya Rai, my hands naturally went to this L’Oreal foundation today. Apply a good concealer under the eyes, preferably couple of shades lighter than your actual your skin tone. It is very important to have a bright under eye area for any eye look to work.  I applied LA Girl HD Pro concelaer.


Make sure you have an even and smooth base. Apply an eye primer so that the eye shadows can be applied in a smooth, even layer, and so that it will stay in place on the eyelid. I have used Urban Decay eye shadow Potion. Groom your eyebrows.
Take a slightly shimmery cobalt blue eye shadow on a pencil brush and draw a V on the outer corner of your eye. It will be like < on left eye and like > on right eye. Now blend the blue towards the middle. Now take a shimmery beige eye shadow and apply on the centre and inner corners of your lids. Make sure there are no harsh lines in between the blue and beige. After that take a light brown eye shadow and apply on your crease, blending well to remove any harsh lines. Apply a champagne colored eye shadow on brow bone. Now take a cobalt blue shimmery eye pencil and line your upper lash line. Apply kohl on water line and then a stroke of the same blue eyeliner. Finally apply strokes of your favorite mascara on top and bottom lashes. I applied L'Oreal Paris Kajal Magique and L'Oreal million lashes mascara. 
All the eye shadows are from Coastal Scents 252 eye shadow pallet
I also wore a pair of grayish blue contact lens on my eyes; you can happily ignore this step. :D

Finish off the look with a pinky nude, glossy lip color. I used L'Oreal Nude Ballet. You can apply any subtle colored lipstick and lip gloss of your choice.

I applied light swirl of L'Oreal LUCENT MAGIQUE BLUSH in Duchess Rose. You can apply any soft natural colored blush on your cheeks. I used Benefit Highbeam on my cheekbones and nose-bridge to highlight.

I don’t know if it is because of Aishwarya Rai, my hands naturally went to L'Oreal products today.

So hope you liked the look. Also let me know your favorite Cannes celebrity looks this year. I’ll try recreating them.
