Welcome to the home of MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Academy in NYC.
MAKE UP FOR EVER HISTORY
Long-time professional make up artist, Dany Sanz, founded MAKE UP FOR EVER in 1984 when she was looking to fill a gap in the beauty industry. Dany became well known for creating high-performance, wearable make up and the brand quickly became a cult favorite among make up professionals backstage and on-set. Now available in over 50 countries around the world, MAKE UP FOR EVER has become the artists’ reference for information, inspiration, artistry and education. Originally a painter and sculptor, Dany is credited as the artist who pioneered the art of body painting in France, evolving her love for color, texture and art from the canvas to the human form. Dany’s expertise in make up artistry ranges from beauty to theater, fashion to special effects – literally touching on every facet of the make up artist industry. This varied expertise has allowed her to lead the brand’s development with a focus on the creative and artistic integrity that makes MAKE UP FOR EVER unique in the world.
