MakeUp in Paris… only 12 days to go before the kick off!

On 20 and 21 June this year, visitors of MakeUp in Paris 2013 will be able to attend twelve high-level conferences in the presence of the most prominent figures in the global and European make-up industry. The conference room which can accommodate more than 100 people will be operational from morning to evening. From the production of formulas including packaging and the distribution of products, the offer will be particularly varied and rich. To note, this year, a special focus on one of the countries the most advanced in the world in terms of make-up, Korea.


10:15 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.: “To make-up, to heal”

This conference will propose to analyse the importance of links between skincare and make-up and their consequences on the designing of products (innovation, formulation, application, packaging) and the marketing in connection with them. Make-up products increasingly combine a skincare dimension, be it hydration, an anti-aging treatment or a UV protection.

With the participation of: Dominique Bouvier, Chairman of the Board at Strand Cosmetics Europe. Pierre Miasnik, CEO of Fiabila. Max Herlant, make-up advisor for Yves Rocher. Ghislaine Suquet, Product Manager Kanebo Cosmetics.

11:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.: “The impact of smell in make-up”

The criteria of appreciation that appears first when reading blogs of make-up users is that of smell. But strangely enough, this criterion does not seem that important to formula suppliers!

To be able to project oneself in tomorrow’s beauty, it is important to look back on its history, understand how trends appear today and what the main inspirations behind them are. A reflection to help better project oneself in the future and get a better grasp at the unavoidable colours and beauty themes in 2014, and on the prospects of a more distant future.

With the participation of: Olivier Guillemin, Designer & Creative Director of (o,o) and Chairman of the Comité Français de la Couleur.

1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.: “Foundation, a concentrate of innovations”

With the participation of: Philippe Fagot Colour management consultant and Arcenciologue.

RED is wild!

4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.: “Summer 2014 beauty trends: From sociological decryption to creative avenues.”
