The Make Up For Ever Academy – NYC style!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

A few weeks ago, I attended the Open House for the new Make Up For Ever Academy that will officially open in the heart of Union Square in NYC in January 2012.  It’s located at 853 Broadway.  So on a rainy autumn evening, I trekked over to see what’s up.

The original academy is located in Paris, France and was founded by Dany Sanz, the brainchild behind MUFE.  So for this NYC location, Floriane David is the Director of Education and the curriculum is based off of the French academy.  Applications are now being accepted for future semesters. This makeup program is internationally renowned for providing intense, in-depth training to turn up-and-coming artists into multi-faceted, full-fledged artistes.  There are 3 modules that cover various topics in make up artistry:

  • Beauty & Fashion
  • Film & TV
  • Artistic & Stage

The Makeup Show 2011: New York Groove Party

So right after the Blogger Preview, I attended the New York Groove Party.  Some of the top celebrity makeup artists were asked to create a look that represented New York for them.  I thought that it was amazing that the bloggers were given the opportunity to have a close-up view of these amazing artists at work and to chat with them, in such a relaxed atmosphere!  The artistry was phenomenal and the night was lots of fun!! I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves.  Another shout out to some more of the people that I met – bloggers Milly from Beauty Logic (hey gyul, you’ve met yet another Trini in New York!), and Lianne from The Makeup Girl, makeup artist Stephanie Flor, and the amazing Ms. Crystal Wright.  If you are a makeup artist or stylist and don’t know who she is, you should.

Off to the photos!!!
