#PretaPostcards: This Is How Makeup Artist Sabrina Bedrani Did Cannes
Hint: It involved Bella Hadid, Kirsten Dunst and a lot of beauty products.
Sabrina Bedrani has been to the Cannes Film Festival five times now, but the luster never wears off for the celebrity makeup artist.
"Cannes is such a lovely town by the beach, and the festival being in May, it's usually nice weather. It's wonderful to be able to dip your feet in the water between clients!" And as a French native, the festival has its perks, too. "It's nice to go back home and reconnect not only with friends from France, but also my peers from the States, too. And, of course, the food."
Here, Bedrani gives us a play-by play of her trip, including a glimpse inside Christian Dior's estate, Chateau de la Colle Noire.
