I’m generally not one of those people who plays the “She/He is Canadian” pride card, but I make an exception for Rachel McAdams. I can not think of someone who represents Canadian women better than the exquisitely and timelessly beautiful Ms. McAdams, and Canadians are proud to call her our own. She exudes natural femininity whether she is all glammed up (with the help of makeup artist sister Kayleen McAdams) or going au natural running errands around Toronto. She has managed to avoid the superficiality of Hollywood and maintained the down-to-earth-girl-next-door charm that appealed her to the masses years ago.
Leading up to and during this years Cannes Film Festival Rachel has been experimenting with some of this years summer trends. Her sense of adventure and creativity is evident in her willingness to try anything (remember her pink hair?). Rachel can pull off any hair color and style with ease; I think her blonder and retro hair style is perfect for the summer months. In terms of makeup, she and Kayleen have been experimenting with the latest summer beauty trends and there isn’t a single one that I don’t love on Rachel.
(I may actually give yellow eyeshadow a shot after this)
(after seeing this, I am not as opposed to the orange trend)
So if you are looking to take your beauty cues from anyone, look no further! Retro, boho, classic, funk, preppy-Rachel can pull them all off; but, most importantly, she never loses her magnetic personality and never lets her look overpower who she is. Certainly a lesson in confidence for all of us.
