July 24, 2013 : Make Up For Ever Paris By Véronique Angelino

Each new year at the Academy in Paris is a buzzing new start for our make-up school students. Veronique Angelino shares with us, her first impressions.

Joyful and welcoming toward the ‘newbies’, as we affectionately call them, everyone starts the year impatient to get their eyes on new talents!

VÉRONIQUE, TELL US HOW YOU PREPARE FOR THE START OF THE NEW ACADEMY YEAR

Every new Academy year that kicks off is a new beginning. From all the various innovations and improvements that need to be put into place to the search for the right sponsorship, naming a fairy godmother for the year, renewing the external professional speakers, the implementation of new ideas inspired by Dany Sanz, not to mention the first contact with the new students and the explanation of how everything works at the Academy.

HOW IS THE ATMOSPHERE BACKSTAGE RIGHT BEFORE D-DAY?

Already in August, everything gets going for the teachers and teams with preparation of welcome packs for the students, new demonstrations, setting up the new Masters who will come and share their experience.
I must say, all in all they remain amazingly calm, real pros! They painstakingly put together exciting new programs and set them to fixed calendars, drawing on their savoir-faire and savoir-être.
Joyful and welcoming toward the ‘newbies’, as we affectionately call them, everyone starts the year impatient to get their eyes on new talents! All the staff get involved with enriching, rewarding internship suggestions for the most motivated students and, of course, the Admissions Office is always ready to answer each and every question.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE FIRST DAY AT THE ACADEMY?

The first day, each member of the team introduces him or herself to the new students and vice versa. It’s always very moving to finally meet and put a face to those who submitted their files and passed the interviews… shy in front their new classmates, the staff, their teachers, impressed in front of their sponsors, usually someone renowned in the sector, and most of all when they meet Dany Sanz, the creator of MAKE UP FOR EVER, who wouldn’t dream of missing this important first day.
You can see the students acknowledging the importance of the year to come and the impact it is going have on their future careers and the fulfillment of their dreams.

HOW DO YOU FEEL AT THE END OF THIS FIRST DAY?

To be honest, after planning for and looking forward to it for so long, the first day - always captured on video and broadcasted on all our international digital channels - I am completely exhausted! I just want to go straight to bed! But I always wake up the next morning full of energy for this new adventure that is about to begin.
Some of the students will become real fans of the brand and its Academy, others will follow another path for a while and fall back in a little later. It’s like a family story. Some of them remain close, believing in the Academy and its educational team, some will leave to live their experience around the world, but they will all, year after year, stay in our heart FOREVER.
