Aishwarya Rai Cannes Filmes Festival Makeup

Beautiful Bollywood film actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looked stunning at this year's Cannes Film Festival. It's sort of crazy to think she's 40 years old and still puts most of us to shame, haha! Girl seriously lucked out in the gene pool department. I do think women can be beautiful at any age, some people seem to think that once you hit 30, your days of being considered attractive are numbered. Luckily this isn't true at all!

Anyhow, here is what some people consider to be the most beautiful woman in the world. For those who don't know her, she's an über famous Bollywood film actress and mega star in India, and was also Miss World 1994. She's also a spokesperson for L'Oréal cosmetics.

I have to say I was really disappointed that years back she got a lot of flack for her red carpet appearances because she put on weight after having a child. People talked about her "letting herself go" and the like. It makes me so mad that as soon as a beautiful woman puts on a little weight, suddenly she's dropped like a hot potato and shunned for failing to live up to her former beauty queen standards. How dare she have a child and put on weight, get older and have her metabolism slow down? It's much harder to be thin and svelte at 35 than it is at 25.

But good for her for dropping a lot of weight at 40. It is so much harder at that age, so props to her. Probably the rich Indian cooking doesn't help, I'd have a hard time losing weight on that kind of cuisine, as yummy as it is!

Anyhow, here's my rendition of this stunning look:

Selena Gomez Met Ball Makeup

This look is inspired by Selena Gomez; this is the makeup she wore on the red carpet of this year's Met Gala. She combined the makeup with a beautiful deep burgundy dress, and I felt it was such a stunning combination. This eye makeup is a fairly easy and an absolute perfect go-to when you want to pull off any bold or dark lip. The eyes are defined and glamorous, but don't take away attention from the lips, which take center stage.
