Get the Look: Angelina Jolie’s Hair and Makeup at Cannes Film Festival!

Angelina Jolie looked stunning in a nude Versace gown as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of Brad Pitt’s new movie Inglourious Basterds at the Cannes Film Festival.  Although Angelina's look was incredibly glamorous, it's one that you can achieve at home.  Muted makeup on the face with the summer's must-have red lip. Hair that is natural looking, not overdone.

Celebrity makeup artist Mary Burton created the glamorous look for Angelina Jolie at the Cannes Film Festival.  To define Angelina’s lashes Mary used two different mascaras, Lancôme Hypnôse in Black and Lancôme Ôscillation in Black and applied a few coats of both to add volume and length. Mary used Lancôme Color Design Lipstick in Candy Apple to create her voluptuous red pout.  
For her hair, Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii created Angelina Jolie’s hairstyle for the 2009 Cannes Film Festival using a blow dryer and small round brush. The inspiration behind the look was "very 70's and very bohemian". 

Prior to blow drying, David sprayed each section with David Babaii for WildAid Volcanic Ash Root Lift for volume, hold and lift. A small round brush served as a substitute for a curling iron giving her soft bohemian waves. He used the warmest temperature while initially blow drying.  Then, when each section was dry, he wrapped hair around the round brush, blasting it first with warm, then cool air, to lock in the curl.  To finish, David brushed hair to one side and pulled remaining hair behind the ear.
