She’s one of the most famous faces in the world but Nicole Kidman suffered an awkward malfunction on the red carpet, falling victim to a makeup disaster.
The 52-year-old attended the Global Ocean Gala in Monte Carlo, Monaco on Thursday night with her husband, 51-year-old singer Keith Urban.
However, while posing for photos, the flash on photographers’ cameras clearly showed up transparent setting powder all over the Big Little Lies star’s face.
It’s not the first time Nicole has appeared on a red carpet sporting a ghostly appearance.
She famously walked the red carpet of Nine in New York in 2009 with thick setting powder extremely visible underneath her eyes and on the tip of her nose.
The superstar Australian actress made the mistake again in 2015 at the Women in Film Awards in 2015 in LA, however her makeup wasn’t as heavy for that appearance.
Benefit make-up artist Mark Rogers told Stellar.ie that the best way to avoid this happening is to “limit your use of illuminating products like concealers, highlighters and HD powders”.
These products will pair with a flash to give you a chalky appearance that nobody wants in any social situation.
Nicole’s red carpet appearance comes after she spoke about her children’s decision to be Scientologists, following in the footsteps of their dad, Tom Cruise.
The former couple, who married in 1990, adopted Isabella, 26, and Connor, 24, before divorcing in 2001.
The children chose to live with their father, and now Kidman has said her role as their mother is to show them “unconditional love.”
“Motherhood is about the journey. There are going to be incredible peaks and valleys, whether you are an adopting mother or a birth mother. What a child needs is love,” the 52-year-old told The Sun.
“They have made choices to be Scientologists. It’s our job as a parent to always offer unconditional love. It’s not about anything else other than, ‘I’m here to love and support you.’”
Kidman met Cruise on the set of Days of Thunder in 1989. They married in December 1990 but were divorced by August 2001.
