MakeUp schools and their students will be put under the spotlights at the next edition of MakeUp in Paris, which will be held on June 20th and 21st, 2013 at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris.


For the first time, students from three make-up schools and their models will take part twice a day to the MakeUParade in the aisles of the show, among visitors, staging exhibitors’ products.

Each half-day will give the pride of place to a make-up school. Students and their models will be offered a dedicated place in the show area to prepare themselves. At noon and 03:30 p.m., during the two-days of the event, students will parade in the aisles of the show.

Following the parade, a jury will vote for its favourite make-up and the winner will be offered a set of make-up products. The make-up student and his model and the exhibitors who supplied the make-up will then take part to the souvenir photo on a podium decorated with the participants’ logos!
