Brand sponsors of the Makeup Museum play a special role in presenting never-before-seen in public elements of make-up history, such as Erno Laszlo’s collection of facial products used by Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo.
“The Makeup Museum is a critical institution for the cultural landscape in New York because makeup has a 10,000-year-old history. There is so much that the Makeup Museum wants and has to explore. The 1950s is a perfect time period for the Makeup Museum to start within the debut exhibition because the 1950s is the birth of the modern cosmetics industry,” says Doreen Bloch, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Makeup Museum.
Beauty and makeup lovers can also participate in the build-up to the exhibition debut by contributing to a GoFundMe campaign live on the site.
“We want to encourage the makeup community to come together in a big, meaningful way with both physical and digital touchpoints,” says Caitlin Collins, Co-Founder of the Makeup Museum. “Makeup is the past, present and future. Now is the time to make the Makeup Museum a reality.”
Some of the notable names from the beauty industry who will be showcasing their artistic work at the exhibit are J.D. Kraemer, Scott Osbourne Jr and Rachel Goodwin.
