Charlize Theron

It's that time of year again... Hollywood has migrated to the French Riviera for the Cannes Film Festival.

It's only the beginning but we've already seen some strong beauty looks on the red carpet. Mexican-Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o led the way, as usual, teaming her bold mint green pleated Gucci dress with a gorgeous disco purple lipstick for the festival's official opening ceremony. She polished the look off with a giant chignon accessorised with a jewelled headband for a regal but fun vibe.

Fan Bingbing

Another star opting for decadent hair accessories was Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, whose romantic braided floral headband caused a stir on the red carpet at the Mad Max Fury Road premiere recently. She paired her liquid cat-eye liner and false lashes with an offbeat coral lip for a slightly retro 1970s aesthetic that prevented the look from becoming too sickly sweet.

Katrina Kaif

British-Indian actress Katrina Kaif went matchy-matchy with her scarlet dress, belt and lipstick while attending the Mad Max Fury Road premiere. The hue clashed beautifully with her violet-toned mane, with the contrast accentuated by dark nails and strong brows.

Meanwhile, Charlize Theron exuded a summery, polished California vibe at the same premiere with glowing bronzed skin, offset by a pale pink shimmery lip and metallic eyeliner to accentuate her features.

Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek opted for classic glamour with a contemporary twist, sporting her charcoal grey smoky eye and 1940s-style waves with a matte coral lipstick for a fashion-forward look at the screening of the film Il racconto dei racconti (Tale of Tales).
