Only a few days before the kick-off of the third edition of MakeUp in Seoul. An edition that once again will give pride of place to conferences and round tables… For the first time, Brazilian brands will make the trip specially to explain the specificity of the Brazilian market and present development opportunities for Korean suppliers. Meanwhile Korean professionals will explain what makes the originality and success of “Korean Beauty” and its huge influence on the entire Asian continent. Two days not to be missed…

Brazil fascinates, Brazil surprises! And you know what ?, Brazil will be at MakeUp in Seoul! Again, you won’t want to miss on April 7 from 02:00 pm to 03:00 pm the round table moderated by Vincent Gallon, Editor-in-Chief of Brazil Beauty News on “How to penetrate this market of 100 million consumers?”, with the participation of Felipe Bras, Make Up Manager, Natura, and of Murilo Reggiani, General Manager of the VULT company. Brazil is ranked third in the global makeup market and has recorded an average annual growth of 15.6% in the category over the last five years.
Makeup products for the eyes, lips, face and nails represent 7.7% of the total cosmetics market in Brazil. The country currently holds third place in global makeup sales and has been recording an average annual growth rate of 15.6% over the last five years, according to data from Mintel.
Despite the cooling in growth rates expected for the coming years, the makeup category should continue to expand in Brazil. Mintel points to a forecast of an annual growth rate of 11.8% in the next five years. The industry is set to invest in high quality, yet more priceaccessible makeup products to keep the Brazilian market heated.
