Nick Barose, who also glammed up Amy Poehler and Zoe Kravitz, shares exclusive behind-the-scenes snapshots of his favorite moments from the south of France.

"Cannes is my favorite film festival. It's so glamorous and fun, I always go the extra mile when it comes to makeup," says Nick Barose. "I tell my clients when I'm trying to push for bolder makeup, 'When in Cannes, you can!' "

Here's a few of the makeup artist's favorite moments from the film festival so far.

"Ready for France with my custom Yankees hat with French flavor and my Cannes playlist! A lot of sexy discos!"

"Best way to arrive in style to Cannes. Thank you, Chopard, for the glamorous ride to work!!!"

"First thing I do when I land in Cannes! Running to the pharmacy to get the Bioderma cleansing water — it takes all of the makeup off (even stubborn lipstick and mascara) — and the blue eyedrops that everyone loves, the Innoxa."

"My daytime dapper look at the Hotel Martinez."

"The opening night of the festival!!!! Miss this gorgeous face. I hadn't seen Lupita since the Oscars — reunited, and it feels so good! We went with purply-pink lotus lips to go with her green Gucci gown. On her lips is Lancome Color Design Lipcolor in Hit List. I added a bit of sheen by using the new Lancome Shine Lover Lipstick in 373 Palpitante on top."

"Best way to start the festival!!! Lupita hitting the red carpet on opening night in Gucci Couture, Chopard and Lancome!!"

"Best lunch spot ever. Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc."

"Running in to fellow makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who was glamming up Charlize Theron for the Mad Max premiere. Sunglasses because we were both exhausted from traveling lol."

"This would make the perfect vehicle to get around the crowds and narrow streets of Cannes, and I can put a makeup trunk in the back! I wish!!!"

"Day 2 in Cannes!!! I always want to work with Zoe in NYC and finally got to work with her in Cannes. Mad Max premiere — gorgeous!"

"Zoe hitting the red carpet at Mad Max premiere with Charlize, double gorges!!!! Makeup on Zoe by me using Dior. Bronzy eyes on Zoe, Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in 646 30 Montaigne and the perfect nude gloss, Dior Addict Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper in Beige Sunrise 006. On the gorgeous Charlize, makeup by Pati Dubroff."

"When in Cannes, you can have champagne in the morning!!!! I love it here!!! #whenincannesyoucan."

"Not a bad way to walk to work ... la vie en rose and blue sky."

"Day 3. Glamming up Lupita for the Chopard party!!! #sneakpeek of upcoming Lancome (September release) color design matte lip crayon!!!! Can't wait to use them all."

"Fun night at the Chopard party, thanks to celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger who's in town to style Lupita and for her help with my bow tie, can never do it myself. Polka dots are the way to go!!

"The warmer red hair color calls for a warmer color palette with sun-kissed skin (Sisley Phyto-Touche Illusion d'Ete bronzer) and warm peachy lips (Sisley Phyto Lip Gloss in Rose)."

"Amy looked sensational and super glamorous in Stella McCartney before her premiere!!! Bravo to stylist Karla Welch!!!"

"Grace Kelly's suite!"
