Today, Bedrani is among the most sought-after makeup artists in the industry. She’s painted longtime client Vanessa Paradis’ lips numerous shades of crimson (including here for VIOLET GREY). She has applied sultry, smoky shadows to Julianne Moore’s eyes many times over and was appointed Sandra Bullock’s on-set artist for the star’s fifth Vogue cover. “I want my clients to feel beautiful and confident, rather than trying to make a ‘makeup statement,’” explains Bedrani. It’s this sensibility and skilled artistry that has her frequently on set for Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair, and collaborating with the likes of photographers Norman Jean Roy and Peter Lindberg.
Earlier this year, Bedrani added Dior brand ambassador to her job title. “It makes sense,” she says of the role, which recently brought her to VIOLET GREY’s Melrose Place flagship store as an artist-in-residence. “I really do love all of their products. And the company is French, just like me.” When not on set with a client or traveling the world, Bedrani can be found in L.A.’s Echo Park neighborhood, where she lives with her partner, three children and dog, Depot. “We found him in the parking lot of a Home Depot,” she explains of the name choice.
