While this year's Cannes Film Festival worked fashion ensembles like no other, it was the gorgeous hair and makeup looks that really captivated. Here's how to channel the most beautiful looks seen on the red carpet.
Diane Kruger's Elegant Bun
Arguably Cannes' most fashionable starlett, Diane Kruger, looked the epitome of elegance during the festival's opening ceremony. Kruger, who wore a gorgeous Giambattista Valli ensemble, complemented her pastel-hued gown with bronze-smokey lids and a glowing complexion. While Kruger's entire makeup looked beyond flawless, it was her elegant, neat bun that got me swooning.

Reese Witherspoon's Smokey Eyes
The always gorgeous Reese Witherspoon showed off her growing bump in a stunning Atelier Versace gown. The sparkling navy hue complemented the actress' fair complexion and bright blue eyes. Reese further highlighted the gown's shimmery color by opting for smokey blue lids. She topped her sultry eye makeup by rimming her lids with a silver pencil, a makeup trick that will give your eyes an extra pop of light.

Nicole Kidman's Radiant Glow
Nicole Kidman promoted her latest flick, Hemingway and Gellhorn, in a gold beaded Ralph Lauren frock that highlighted the star's amazing figure. Nicole opted for a sweet curly updo and a luminous complexion to complement her metallic gown. To get Nicole's sensual glow, opt for a light satin-finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage. My top pick? NARS Sheer Glow Foundation $42, a lightweight makeup that will leave your skin looking as silky and smooth as Nicole's.

Kristen Stewart's Sexy Red Pout
While Kristen Stewart showed off several beautiful looks while in Cannes, it was her alluring red lip that captured my eye. Complementing her gorgeous red Reem Acra gown, Kristen chose a bold red lip color that brightened her whole visage. Work your own sexy pout with the help of Make Up For Ever's Rouge Artist Natural in Red $19. This bold and creamy lipstick will leave your lips supple and moisturized for a good eight hours.

Jessica Chastain's Bronzed, Sculpted Cheeks
Channel your inner Greek Goddess by working a bronze palette over your whole face, a la Jessica Chastain. Jessica showed off her gorgeous features by working the metallic hue on her lips, eyes and cheekbones. To get Jessica's sculpted cheek bones, dust on a sheer buildable bronzing powder like Guerlain's Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder $50, a shimmery bronzer that will give you the perfect sunkissed look.

Lana Del Rey's Sexy Siren Locks
Lana del Rey showed off her sultry side with an Old Hollywood Glamour hairdo. To get Lana's beautiful retro waves, make sure to prep your hair with a styling product that will keep your locks frizz-free and held in place several hours after application. To achieve this look, prep your hair with Bumble and Bumble's Styling Cream $25, a lightweight styling cream that will keep your hair in check well into the wee hours of the night.
Freida Pinto's Glossy Pink Lips
Take note of Freida Pinto's glossy pink lips the next time you are trying to figure a summer-friendly lipstick. Freida's glossy lips feel both pretty and effortless, a look that is ideal during the hot weather. To get Freida's dazzling pout, try Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Rose Petal $36, a shimmery lip gloss with radiant shine. Do like Freida and keep the rest of your face looking natural when working a soft pink mouth.
