The 79th Venice Film Festival is here! We’re definitely keeping an eye on the noteworthy films — The Whale starring Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink and Don’t Worry Darling featuring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh are just a couple — but we can’t stop gushing about the beauty looks we spotted on the red carpet too.
The makeup looks this year are more toned down and classic versus the bold and colourful ones we saw in this year’s VMAs, but that’s not a bad thing! In fact, we can definitely rock these subtle glam looks IRL. Here are some of our faves.
Barbara Palvin’s smokey eye
Model Barbara Palvin wore a dreamy, ethereal look to the Venice Film Festival red carpet. She used Armani Beauty products to emphasise her baby blue eyes while she kept her pout neutrally coloured with a pink lippie. Her minimalist, boho-chic gold accessory tied everything together.
Sadie Sink’s subtle silver eyeshadow
Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink made an appearance at the festival for her new film The Whale and wowed attendees with her silver ensemble. Her makeup artist, Nina Park, focused the colour on Sadie’s eyes with a subtle silver eyeshadow that matches her sparkly Alexander McQueen dress.
Sydney Sweeney’s slick middle part
Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney kept her look sweet and minimalist. The part that caught our attention, though, is her middle part and half-ponytail ‘do that she finished with a huge black bow.
Maude Apatow’s retro glam
Maude Apatow is another Euphoria star that graced the Venice Film Festival 2022 carpet. She went full-on retro with her dark red lip — which is the Armani Beauty Lip Power in the shade 504, according to the brand — and chic wavy bob.
Florence Pugh’s swoopy bangs
Don’t Worry Darling lead actress Florence Pugh went for a natural makeup look and a classy chin-length bob for the movie’s premiere. Her hairstylist Peter Lux kept her bob neatly parted to the side and styled her bangs to artfully swoop away from her face.
Honourable mention: Tessa Thompson’s choker hair tie
There were some experimental beauty looks too. But the one that took the cake was Tessa Thompson who let her curls down and used her chain choker as a multipurpose hair tie. We can safely say that we’ve never seen that done before.
