LASHIFY | FESTIVAL DE CANNES 2022

Nothing signals the beginning of summer or kicks it off quite like the Cannes Film Festival. Along with the slew of programmes in which the festival is split into, one of the main highlights and attractions of the festivities is the amfAR Gala. Since 1985, the amfAR foundation has invested over $600 million in AIDS research and over $240 million alone has been raised from glittering amfAR Gala Cannes event itself, hosted to support the organization's endless dedication to AIDS research. Famously hosted at the picturesque Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France, the invite-only gala is the soiree that can't be missed. If you're lucky enough to be invited, of course.

After a hiatus left behind as a consequence of the global COVID pandemic, this years' triumphant return of the annual amfAR Gala saw a glorious turnout. Guests arrived spectacularly dressed in Black Tie for the cocktail reception, dinner, and after party. Performances by Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, and Charli XCX kept the everyone on their feet. And as we all know, an event this grand isn't complete without head-to-toe glam... all made possible by couturiers and makeup artists that curate and bring the glitz to life. We're bringing you a backstage pass into the looks created by famed MUAs Tonya Brewer, Hung Vanngo and Tobi Henney, who used Lashify to bring it all to life.
