Get the Look: Léa Seydoux at Cannes Film Festival

Celebrity makeup artist Saraï Fiszel created the look for Léa Seydoux for the premiere of “The Grand Central” at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. If only the products would give me her full lips…

Saraï started by applying just a few individual lashes to the outer corners and then applying Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power mascara. To create thicker looking lashes, Saraï took the mascara brush and wiped off some of the product with a tissue. She then meticulously applied the mascara making sure to coat each lash and then went back and layered the mascara several times, each time using the same method.

For her brows, Saraï used Arch de Triumphe in Warm and applied it with the Brow Brush & Shaper first to her hand to ensure that it didn’t apply too heavily and then filled in her brows lightly to look natural and not too defined.

It was raining really hard the night of the premiere, so Saraï wanted to make sure that Léa’s makeup would withstand the weather and look fresh and dewy all night. Starting with the base, Saraï first applied a layer of Love Me Deux in Paris and then lightly powdered her face with a YSL pressed powder. The trick is to then apply another layer of the tinted moisturizer on top of the powder wherever needed to make sure that it stays on really well and doesn’t look cakey.

Then, Saraï took Beauté en Bronze and applied it all over the face with a thick brush that wasn’t too dense. “The brush makes all the difference when applying bronzer to the face because you want it to apply evenly and without patches.” After dusting the bronzer all over, Saraï then went back with a denser brush to contour the face and create a nicer angle.

To finish off the femme fatale look, Saraï created a deep red lip using Votre Vu’s French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick in Margaux.

Finishing Touch
Use a lip balm on the eyelids and cheekbones for a fresh, dewy look. “There’s something sexy about a little glossy eyelid and on the cheekbones to make it look like you don’t have any makeup on,” says Saraï.

    Love the clean eyes and bright lips – très français. French women don't use much eye shadow but they love their kohl and mascara. And it's either no lipstick, à la Carine Roitfeld, or a bold red for special occasions. French women spend on skin care, facials, haircuts, mani-pedis, and, if they wear it, foundation.
    A little OT…my former French MIL had her hair done Sunday a.m. and her mani-pedi Wednesdays, without fail. She lectured me on the mandatory weekly manicure which she insisted was proof of "une jeune fille bien élevée." Although this was years ago my DD, who lived ten years in Paris, assures me little has changed.
