After taking a few months off to recover from her Paris robbery, Kim Kardashian returned to work this month. She flew to Dubai to model for a makeup master class hosted by her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. The trip wasn’t all business, though. Judging by her social media posts, Kardashian made the most of her time in the United Arab Emirates, and she brought a few members of her squad along for the ride.

One highlight of the trip was a dune buggy excursion in the Margham Desert. Instagram pics show Kardashian and friends Stephanie Sheppard, Carla DiBello, Simon Huck and Jen Atkin, posing on and around a massive gold dune buggy.
