Movin' On Up





"MAKE UP FOR EVER TO OPEN FIRST LICENCED U.S. ACADEMY IN NEW YORK CITY IN JANUARY 2012"
-Leading Make Up Company Brings Distinctive Educational Experience to North America


Wow. This is beyond, exciting. MAKE UP FOR EVER is opening an Academy in January. MAKE UP FOREVER remains one of the dominant, most exclusive brands in the industry. An Academy in New York, is as cool as studying at La Sorbonne.


I love this brand, the bold pigments, whimsical false lashes, Body & Face Foundation, covers flaws and bronze celebs on the red carpet. The 12 Flash Color Case, the ultra-complete color palette. All the Pros carry Flash Color in their kits. The Aqua Cream shadows are delicious. I could go on & on.


MAKE UP FOREVER's Creator & Artistic Director Dany Sanz, sculptor & painter, transformed the industry. Known for her trailblazing body painting in the 70's, daring rainbow of color and master technique. She created MAKE UP FOREVER to share her expert knowledge with novice artists. She opened the first Academy in Paris in 2002, spreading the MAKE UP FOR EVER philosophy worldwide.


I remember going into the NYC store to pick out product for a benefit, featuring Cyndi Lauper, Sandra Bernhard & Natalie Merchant. I walked out with everything under the sun. A big fan of all three divas, I wanted to be ready. I was super prepared, waterproof liquid liner, check. Yellow eyeshadow, check. A prepped, well- trained artist is a confident one. Confidence is contagious.

I wish there had been a top notch MAKEUP FOR EVER Academy when I started. With pros teaching and guiding each application. As I fumbled my way into makeup, assisted, held "famous" artists' pencils, carried bags, mostly I watched. How they could  masterfully blend a kohl pencil on the eye, with a single brush stroke. Genius. I paid attention, began to develop my own style. It took many, many years, sweat and tears. School would've been way easier and faster.


The Academy will be led by the highly skilled artiste, Floriane David.  The curriculum is divided into three divisions. So cool. Heck, I might even sign up and hone my skills. You can be sure you'll learn lots of new techniques and innovative ideas. Plus, meet creative, fun interesting artists. With makeup, you are always discovering new products, applications, different techniques, new ways of thinking. It's endless, so follow your passion. Get painting.
MAKE UP FOREVER's Academy is guaranteed not to disappoint.
