With brands like Make-Up Studio, Kryolan, NYX Professional, MUD, M.A.C, Bobbi Brown and many more ruling the top charts in the industry, there is no dearth of high-quality professional products.
The Beauty and Cosmetics Industry in India is estimated to hit the USD 2.68 billion mark by the year 2020.

“As the Indian society is warming up to alternative and creative career options, make-up artistry is gaining popularity. However, there still remains a skill gap in terms of technique, precision, and knowledge on how to build a long-lasting career as a make-up artist. That’s why we have envisaged a first-of-its-kind, beyond bridal technical and business education make-up show exclusively for the make-up community – the Make-Up Week. It will give local talent the opportunity to learn from national as well as global make-up masters. It will put them on the forefront of trends and teach them how to customise international trends for their Indian clientele. Whether he is a beauty advisor at a store, a make-up artist with a salon or a freelancer, the first edition of Make-Up Week is a must-attend for all serious contenders in the cosmetics world. We have top names from the make-up fraternity providing valuable knowledge about the art, science and business of make-up, along with reputed colour cosmetics’ brands that boast state-of-the-art make-up products”, commented Vikas Vij, Director, IDEX on the debut of MUW.

MUW will also host international experts such as the UK-based celebrity make-up artist and TV beauty expert Armand Beasley, Sanah Hassan of Kryolan Paris and Sharon Knuiman of Makeup Studio Amsterdam.
“I’m thrilled to be hosting MUW in Mumbai! We have got some great brands and talented artists to help inspire all you make-up addicts! Plus, I will be creating one of my red carpet looks that I’ve created on one of my celebrity clients, using my favourite cruelty-free brands. This is my first time in Mumbai and I want to meet as many make-up artists and beauty gurus as possible! So come down and say hi,” said excited Armand Beasley.
These experts will be conducting sessions focusing on deepening the technical knowledge behind using make-up including topics such as understanding the science of make-up application, the art of advanced cosmetic effects, international make-up trends, colour looks inspired by Living Coral, using cruelty-free beauty products, building a digital portfolio, bridal makeovers and the do’s and don’ts of using correct lighting.
