Halloween Theme Event and Open House at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy New York - New Soho location.

Soho was a buzz last Thursday night, not because it was one of those special no-tax weeks, but because the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy ventured out into the streets and held a small showcase of its Halloween themed pieces for an open house. Needless to say, crowds of people gathered around and took pictures - tons of flashes went off as if there was a celebrity sighting. A total of 5 pieces were displayed as both alumni and current students enthusiastically handed out flyers and chaperoned the models along the facade of the Academy building. Everyone was such a good sport, toughing it out and dealing with the cool NY fall weather. The event, spearheaded by the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy’s Margaritta Topielski, attracted a standing room only audience of potential enrollees that wanted to see the Academy first hand. Being one of the newest additions to the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy family, the NY campus is proving to be a force to be reckoned with. Having just relocated to a new, bigger and better Soho location, it is now able to accommodate and run multiple classes at a time.

Once the street showcase was wrapped, the open house commenced. The attendees were ushered to the brand new facility featuring three lecture rooms ornate with exposed brick walls and hard wood floors complete with studio lighting facilities. While there, they were treated to some light refreshments. There was an air of excitement as Margaritta explained how the modular programs work and introduced the audience to the Academy staff and ambassadors. Each ambassador had a chance to present their pieces and share their experience at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy which painted a real-world expectation of how life would feel like.

They were then taken into the live demonstrations each featuring a creative beauty and special FX look by alumni in the other two rooms. After the live demos and tour, the attendees were given a chance to mingle with alumni and current students. People gathered around their favorite pieces for a closer look as well as to ask questions about techniques and execution. It was a room full of exuberant chatter about makeup transcending the norm and moving into artistry. The attendees were given a chance to sign-up and submit an interest form if they were really serious about attending the Academy. Upon reflection, the whole day was a huge success. Not only was the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy able to show off its new campus, but they were also able to spread the word and inspire new generation of hopefuls.

Thank you to all who took time out of their busy day to check out our open house. We will be doing more in the future in case you missed it. Check out the MAKE UP FOR EVER page for upcoming events. We hope to see you next time.
