City Pulse

By Candice Sabatini

The title just about says it all, right?

The beautiful British actress, Carey Mulligan, who stars as Daisy Buchanan, in the new version of Gatsby with Leonardo DiCaprio, is this year’s belle of the ball at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

For the opening ceremony and premiere of The Great Gatsby Mulligan looks absolutely smashing in her low cut, pale pink Christian Dior gown that makes her porcelain complexion look oh-so-creamy. While many would opt for a pale lip here, makeup artist George Eisdell used NARS cosmetics to create this bold, feminine look. Eisdel says, “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.”

We so agree? Don’t you?

To create the look, he used Jungle Red Lipstick, Jungle Red Lipliner, Sex Appeal Blush and to finish it off, a dusting of Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder. All by NARS and available at
