The Cannes Film Festival has established itself as a highly anticipated festival of cinematic brilliance. Held in the scenic resort of Cannes on the Côte d’Azur, the famous event attracts a large number of festival-goers each year, with gala evenings exhibiting nearly 5,000 films and hundreds of cinematic works contending for the Palme d’Or and other valued honours. The Cannes cinema Festival 2024 is no exception, with a stunning lineup of masterpieces for cinema fans to look forward to, ranging from industry veteran George Miller’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga to Jacob Elordi’s festival debut in drama Oh, Canada.

Having said that, the Cannes Film Festival will benefit more than just cinephiles. Beauty enthusiasts will be on the lookout for every remarkable hair and make-up moment throughout the 12-day festival, considering the sheer quantity of perfectly dressed celebrities who will grace the steps of the Palais des Festivals each night. So far, we’ve seen a good number of bright complexions, from Thalia Besson’s radiant demeanour to Juliette Binoche’s ‘your-skin-but-better’ glow.
