New Beauty Breakdown! Nicole Kidman in Cannes

Makeup by Kay Montano

It’s an exciting week at MM HQ – it’s all the red carpet excitement of Cannes! Amazing international makeup artist Kay Montano has been in Cannes all week, looking after her regular clients, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lawrence. And in my hot sticky paws today, I have breakdowns.

My favourite look that Nicole has worn this week has been this one at the Opening Ceremony:

Nicole Kidman, Cannes Film Festival

Here’s what Kay used:

Foundation: MyFace MyMix foundation in F2

Powder: Jurlique Rose Powder

Blush: Chanel Joues Contraste in Frivole


  • M&S Your Beauty’s Slate Eyeshadow
  • Chanel Illusion d’Ombres in Convoitise (gold), and Chanel Illusion d’Ombre in Apparition (navy)
  • Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner


  • Diego Dalla Palma GoGo mascara (available at M&S Your Beauty departments in the UK)
  • Eyelure Individual False Lashes in Medium

Brows: Eyeko Eyebrow Gel

Lips: Bobbi Brown Pink Lily Creamy Matte Lipcolour

Body: MAC Face and Body in C2 plus Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

Also of note was Kay persuaded Nicole to wear Chanel’s gorgeous new nail polish in Lilis, which worked perfectly with her exquisite floral dress and pink heels.

I have more Cannes Beauty Breakdowns from Kay on the way!

  1. This is great to see what Nicole Kidman was wearing. I can’t believe Kay Montano has some M&S stuff !! Normally I wouldn’t look at M&S makeup. I’ve added the Eyeko brow gel to my list as Nicole’s eyebrows look so good.
    Can’t wait for more beauty breakdowns from you. Thanks !

    1. Kay is an ambassador for M&S, so I imagine she has quite a bit of it in her kit now. Only the good stuff though, Kay is so rigorous with her products! Non-performing products are out and quite literally, in the bin. I can’t wait to check out the new M&S Beauty Halls when I’m next in the UK. Also ;et me know what you think of the Eyeko Brow Gel, I’ve not tried it but I love the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner.
      PS Glad you like the Beauty Breakdowns, more to come this week.
