The Great actress dazzled on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival 2023 on May 16, wearing a sparkly silver ballgown and ethereal makeup that made her look like she stepped out of a fairytale book. And would you believe us if we told you Elle only wore drugstore makeup for her fabulous red carpet moment at the opening ceremony and screening of Jeanne du Barry?

Th actress' makeup artist Erin Ayanian Monroe prepped her skin with L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid and also dabbed the Caffeine Eye Serum under her eyes. To give the 25-year-old a dewy glow and pop of color on her cheeks, Erin then used the brand's True Match Lumi Glotion and True Match Blush in Rose.

As for Elle's eyes, she rocked a classic cat-eye, with Erin flicking a dainty wing with the Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel Eyeliner in Brown Denim. For look-at-me-lashes, the makeup artist applied the Telescopic Lift Mascara in Intense Black.

The Maleficent star's whimsical beauty look perfectly coordinated with her princess-like ballgown from Alexander McQueen. The strapless design featured an intricately beaded corseted bodice that consisted of architectural floral petals embellished with sparkly silver stoning.

Adding extra pizzazz to the already eye-catching gown, the top half of the voluminous, pale pink skirt was also decked in sequin.
