Monochrome wins at Cannes 2013.

 Not everything is Black&White they say, well they clearly aren't watching the Cannes 2013 red carpet are they?! Because if they were they would see that just about everything there is black and white. From the gowns on the big red carpets, to the more dressed down press conferences, monochrome is king of Cannes!

Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence,  and Noomi Rapace to name a few have been working the two colours this week and with interesting results. Some looks have been fantastic, Lawrence's Dior for example and some fell almost flat - Rooney Mara and her Dior pick teamed with harsh hair felt too over done for her - but I loved her makeup, go figure.

Noomi shows us how to work a tux trou with tude!

 The go-to makeup looks for Monochrome seem to be very much working with a neutral base, soft smokey eyes and a variation of a red lip. A look that can easily be achieved using @illamasqua
skinbase foundation, @Dior and +MACMAKEUP MAC  in one of their cult faves, Ruby Woo. For a softer nude lip, I would go with the delish Dior Rouge Dior Lip Color in Angelique Beige

The  thing that I adore most about this trend is that it's timeless, it suits every skin tone, and every figure and height. Unlike the animal print trends or the likes, this one is one that can carry you from one season to the next, from now, to fifty years from now. I  love it, and I look forward to keeping an eye on the rest of the festival to see if anyone else breaks out in black and white.
