Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney made her Cannes Film Festival debut yesterday when she walked the red carpet her husband George Clooney at the premiere of his new film, Money Monster. Although Clooney’s office is usually a courtroom, she fully embodied Old Hollywood glamour with the soft smoky eye and bold red lip makeup look she paired with her light yellow chiffon Versace gown, and large, voluminous curls. To get her film festival ready, Clooney turned to her close friend and long-time makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury. Safe to say, Tilbury knows a thing or two about red carpet glamour. If you’re just as smitten with Clooney’s glamourous makeup as we are, the look can easily be recreated by thanks to the following set of Tilbury’s pro tips.
First Tilbury prepped Clooney’s skin with her signature Magic Cream ($100; charlottetilbury.com) to hydrate and smooth her complexion, and then applied Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Primer ($55; charlottetilbury.com) all over to blur any lines and add a touch of luminosity.
Clooney’s flawless complexion came courtesy of a cocktail of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation in shades 7 & 8 ($44; charlottetilbury.com), and Tilbury concealed any imperfections with Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher in Shade 3 ($35; charlottetilbury.com). To really brighten and make Clooney’s eyes pop, Tilbury used her Mini Miracle Eye Wand in Shade 2 ($45; charlottetilbury.com). Tilbury added warmth to Clooney’s complexion by dusting the sculpt shade in her Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette ($65; charlottetilbury.com) across her temples and cheekbones, followed by a light-handed dusting of Cheek to Chic Blusher in Ecstasy ($40; charlottetilbury.com) on Clooney’s cheekbones for a flattering flush. Then, Tilbury used her Brow Lift pencil in Cara D ($30; charlottetilbury.com) to lightly perfect Clooney’s brows.

To create Clooney’s subtle sultry eyes, Tilbury swiped the pop shade from her The Luxury Palette in The Vintage Vamp ($52; charlottetilbury.com) across her entire lid for a soft shimmer. Next, Tilbury used her Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eyeliner in Barbarella Brown ($27; charlottetilbury.com) to draw a line along the upper lash line into a soft cat-eye flick, and smudged the enhance shade from her The Luxury Palette in Golden Goddess ($52; charlottetilbury.com) along the waterline for definition. Tilbury finished the eyes with two generous coats of her Legendary Lashes mascara ($32; charlottetilbury.com) for a false lash effect—no glue required.
Clooney’s glamourous look was completed with the ultimate red carpet accessory: a red lip. Charlotte Tilbury’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Love Bite ($32; charlottetilbury.com) was the perfect match for Clooney’s lips.
