How to Achieve Rachel Weisz's Creamy Cannes Makeup
For the IPF and Calvin Klein Women in Film party, makeup artist Matin Maulawizada focused on clean beauty.
For Cannes' IPF and Calvin Klein Women in Film party on Monday night, makeup artist Matin Maulawizada took into consideration the vibrant surroundings and actress Rachel Weisz’ bright coral-pink neoprene gown, and went the other way. "In the midst of too many colorful St. Tropez-inspired faces I wanted to go the opposite—super clean and creamy with her look."

To keep the focus squarely on Weisz’s vivid halter dress, Maulawizada — who is also working with Mindy Kaling and Michelle Rodriguez at the South of France film festival — concentrated on the actress’ skin. "I started with a Talika hydrating mask ($12) to infuse some moisture into her already gorgeous skin," he says. After working the remains of the mask into her skin he used Orlane Anti-Fatigue eye cream ($125).
The makeup was kept fairly minimal: Armani Maestro ($64) mixed with a pump of Orlane Morning Recovery Complex for a dewy, long-lasting foundation. Maulawizada followed that with Willa Out of Sight Concealer Pen to perfect and Dior blush in Bright Pink, which he fixed with Laura Mercier Brightening ($24) and Translucent powders ($37).
As for Weisz’ eyes, he made them monochromatic with a wash of Laura Mercier eye color in Vanilla Nuts ($24), and then added a sweep of Laura Mercier pen liner ($24) and extra between her lashes. Her lashes were full, thanks to Dior Lash Primer ($28.50) and Diorshow Mascara ($25), along with a few Lucky Cat individual lashes.
