Seen at MakeUp in Paris

The fourth edition of MakeUp in Paris, which was held on 20-21 June 2013 at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, was the opportunity for the 90 exhibitors to unveil some of their latest innovations. Premium Beauty News offers you a first glimpse at them.

With 90 exhibitors, including 60% from abroad, and more than 2,500 visitors (+18% compared to 2012, +110% for foreign visitors), MakeUp in Paris made the demonstration that it is now part of the most important tradeshows in the cosmetics industry, in particular thanks to its qualitative and friendly niche concept.

The tradeshow, which aims to bring together all the players of the makeup industry, gathers a large variety of suppliers including packaging, accessories, or formulas makers, as well as full service players, who are able to offer turn-key products. This year, for the first time, MakeUp in Paris also hosted a selection of ingredient suppliers (BASF, Merck and Laserson), who came there to meet a different public, since marketing and R&D managers accounted alone for over 50% of visitors, according to the organisers.

Also new in 2013, the “MakeUPioneer” trail, highlighting the innovations proposed by the exhibitors.

Among the innovations that were presented during MakeUp in Paris, Premium Beauty News spotted:

  • The brush-formula couples kit jointly developed by Strand Cosmetics Europe and Dupont Natrafil, with the co-operation of make-up artist Louise Wittlich.
