The Tree of Innovation

Visitors entering the venue could not miss this tree, which set the tone of this second edition of MakeUp in Seoul.
“Innovation was the one expected at each stand and at the heart of meetings and conversations between professionals. They had all made the trip for that and were not disappointed. Innovation, which was expressed on all stands, be it in terms of formulas applicators, packaging or accessories,” say the organizers.
Renowned partners and high-profile visitors
