"Products are serious, but makeup remains a game. I wanted to create a universe of freedom by imagining infinite colors with high technology with simple products for an ultra-long-lasting result. I wanted makeup to become a source of inspiration, a real field of possibilities."- Dany Sanz

Dany Sanz, former Fine Arts student, founded MAKE UP FOR EVER in 1984 to address the unmet needs of makeup artists. In the 80’s the makeup universe was lacking creativity with very few products available and a limited number of shades. Dany decided first to transpose the Fine Arts palette into a makeup palette. She started developing highly pigmented and high-performance formulas, coupled with tailor made tools and brushes. A true revolution in the world of makeup: a creative and innovative brand with products designed for everyone.

Dany Sanz was a pioneer in the beauty industry and has been teaching techniques of makeup for the past 40 years inspiring generations of makeup artists. Her legacy lives on. Today MAKE UP FOR EVER is a collective of makeup artists with no less than 1800 pros throughout the world who share their expertise and transmit a creative vision to everybody.

MAKE UP FOR EVER has been part of the world leader luxury group LVMH since 1999. MAKE UP FOR EVER is distributed in over 60 countries and has more than 3200 points of sale around the world.
