We’ve come to admire Rachel McAdams’ style and poise on the red carpet. Always looking beautiful, with just the right amount of glamour, we knew we had to keep an eye on all of Rachel’s looks at the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival, going on now. And as we expected, she is looking as stunning as ever. Makeup artist, Kayleen McAdams has been working with Rachel in Cannes and we found out the scoop, straight from Kayleen, on Rachel’s look for the Midnight in Paris photo call.

What was your inspiration for this look?
“For the Midnight in Paris photo call, the dress was very youthful and fun. We knew we were focusing on the eyes and skin for the premiere, so we chose to do a bright fun lip,” says Kayleen.

How can we create this look?

“I used a Clé de Peau Cream Foundation all over as a base, and Amazing Concealer in a few areas, to help create a flawless complexion. I finished the face with MAC Pressed Powder, for a matte effect. On her brows I used Anastasia Brow Powder. On Rachel’s eyes, I used NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Silk Road, a duo of beautiful pink and rose gold shades. Mascara was CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion in Very Black-to make her eyes pop. I used NARS Blush in Mata Hari for a bright pink, rosy cheek. Finally, we wanted the lip to be the focus of the look, so we chose Stila Convertible Color in Fuchsia-a fun, bright-pink fuchsia lip stain.”

We don’t know about you, but we’re going to have to pick some of these products up and give ’em a whirl.
