> Stars tone it down for Venice Film Festival
RED carpet events usually see Hollywood actresses going all out, but if the 2016 Venice Film Festival is anything to go by then the natural look is the chicest beauty trend of the moment.
During the festival , countless stars have turned up for the paparazzi rocking the same fresh, low-key yet flawless makeup look.
It began with Emma Stone, who opted for a dreamy and luminous look for the screening of her new film "La La Land". The Oscar-nominated actress dazzled thanks to a slightly dewy base prepped up with highlighter and creamy textured blush, perfectly offset by a light coral lip gloss.
A shimmer of silver shadow at the inner corners of the eyes drew the attention to her long lashes and echoed the twinkly star-shaped jewellery she accessorised with.
The following day, Swedish star Alicia Vikander stepped out for the premiere of "The Light Between Oceans" sporting an even more pared-down look. A matte base, a set of discreet eyelashes, a hint of nude lipstick were all it took for the actress to achieve a pretty, polished and laid-back look, counterbalanced by a simple and somewhat severe chignon.
Amy Adams followed suit at the premiere of "Nocturnal Animals", opting for a soft autumnal look based around earthy neutrals.
A light brown smoky eye and a taupe lip gloss perfectly complemented her matte foundation and tumbling, relaxed waves.
Elle Fanning chose a shimmery look to reference her mermaid-esque sequin dress, using highlighter liberally around her eye sockets and cheekbones for a youthful glow. She kept the rest of the look minimalistic, adding a touch of glamour with her slick, high ponytail that kept her face clear.
However, British model and actress Suki Waterhouse suggested the trend for looking naturally pretty was going nowhere fast when she turned up for a photo call for her movie "The Bad Batch" sporting matte foundation and a strong creamy pink blush, teamed with a smudge of eyeliner and a pale pink lip. Discreet earrings and tousled hair completed the effect. – AFP Relaxnews
