Day to Night: Carey Mulligan at Cannes

The Cannes Film Festival kicked off this week and Carey Mulligan has set the stage for the upcoming festivities with not one, but two stunning looks. Makeup artist Georgie Eisdell worked with NARS to prettify The Great Gatsby star for the opening press day and opening ceremony and premiere of the film. Read on to get the scoop on her day and night looks.


Carey's daytime look was minimal, but oh-so-pretty - the perfect complement to her all black ensemble. “It’s extremely light and sophisticated,” said Georgie. “We used a very fine liquid liner to create definition along her lashes, and polished the look with a light lip that has a bit of pink color but isn’t heavy.”

Georgie vamped up Carey's look for her evening events. We rarely see Carey with such a bold lip, but it looks absolutely fabulous against her fair skin and pink gown. “It’s a big statement for her and we wanted to keep this look as modern as possible,” said Georgie. “I’ve only once created a red lip with her, but I loved the idea of contrast with the pale pink dress. I felt strongly about that being the focus of the look. I knew I wanted to go bold when I saw the dress. I thought a red lip would be so striking.”
