I’m very happy to be sharing with you my incredible experience at Cannes Film Festival with L’Oreal Paris Levant. It was a beautiful dream and I feel blessed for having the chance of fulfilling it. As I arrived to Cannes, I had a pretty busy day attending very interesting makeup and skincare workshops with L’Oreal Paris professionals. I have to say this is one of the nicest parts of this trip. Getting the chance of interacting directly with the official makeup designer, nail artist and skincare experts allowed me to get a deeper understanding of the composition of the products and the innovations made to existing products.
Then, it was time to get ready for the red carpet. Fittings at Elie Saab’s showroom followed by makeup and hair by L’Oreal Paris in my room at the Hotel Martinez. Just like a princess! I was extremely nervous as we were leaving the hotel headed to the red carpet, I didn’t know what to expect! Would it be as glamorous as we see on TV? It was even much more than that!
Walking the red carpet was an unforgettable experience, the way the photographers from both sides of the venue keep on flashing their cameras is so intimidating, yet it has its own magic. I fell in love. Then, I was very lucky to attend the screening of “Carol” by Todd Haynes, featuring Kate Blanchett and Rooney Mara (who actually won “best actress” at the end of the festival!). That night, I slept just like Cinderella, with my heart full of love.
My second day in Cannes was the most surprising. I was extremely proud to be interviewing Andie MacDowell and Aishwarya Rai, it was such an honor to get to talk with these very inspiring women. I have to say that I learned so much about the concept of beauty throughout my discussions with them, the way they lead their lives is extremely insightful.
