Aishwarya Rai Bachchan believes society needs to get rid of the prejudice that women, who like dressing up, lack substance.
The actor said that one must also not assume that a woman who does not prefer applying makeup lacks in colour.
"We as women need to stop judging each other. If you apply makeup that doesn't mean you don't have brains. It doesn't mean you lack in substance. It does not meant that you are not sensitive or compassionate," she said.
The actor walked the red carpet at Cannes for cosmetic giant for the 15th year.
"At the same time, if you choose not to use make up, it doesn't mean you are a disinterested person or a person lacking in colour. Or that you are brainy just because you don't put make up. Or that you are too serious and not a fun-loving person," the actor added.
Aishwarya said that when it came to grooming, society needed to break free from these "pre-conceived notions".
At the French Riviera, 82 women had protested against the gender inequity in the film industry, led by the Competition jury chairperson Cate Blanchett and Agnes Varda.
