After a successful 2021 edition in October, MakeUp in Paris expects to welcome more than 150 exhibitors and 4000 visitors to resume business and innovation as usual. Once again, the event will gather suppliers of ingredients, formulation, packaging, accessories, full service and digital solutions and devices.

The pandemic has disrupted the trade show business, but the beauty industry, more than any other sector, needs a real trade show with face-to-face contact. The use of the five senses is mandatory to evaluate a beauty product,” explains Sandra Maguarian, Show Founder and Director.

New identity

Following the rise of the hybridization of makeup and skincare, MakeUp in has adapted its offer to meet the expectations of the market. For several years now, the show has welcomed suppliers of skincare products alongside traditional exhibitors from the make-up sector.

In order to reaffirm the event’s skincare and makeup positioning, the organizers have designed a new visual identity including a new logo and the baseline: “skincare & makeup inspiration.” A new website has also been created.

We have worked on an optimized user experience to facilitate the preparation of the visit and give even more visibility to our exhibitors, who will be able to highlight their new products in our online catalog before the show,” detail the organizers.

Three topics will be explored: plant pigments, plant oils, up-cycled ingredients.
