Mastery unleashes creativity. Nothing sums up better the philosophy of Make Up For Ever, a House that has become a cult name through its uniqueness and the quality of its professional products. Its founder, Dany Sanz, believes that technique must first be conquered before leaving free rein to creativity. And that academic knowledge must be honed before pushing the limits of one’s art. Dany Sanz has remained true to this approach throughout her artistic career and has incorporated it into the development of her makeup brand. At Make Up For Ever, teaching plays an essential role: in addition to offering exceptional products to professionals and women from around the world, the House has the ambition to share its knowledge and passion with the general public through training courses and to bring progress to the world of makeup.

” Life is a stage – whatever your role, Make Up For Ever is here to help you play it! Our brand strives not only to be at the service of artists, accompanying them in their various performances, but also to help women embody what they truly are.”


Teaching and learning have played an essential role since the creation of Make Up For Ever. The House is committed to seeking out new talent, ensuring its art is recognized and sharing its savoir-faire. Teaching programs are based on the discipline, high standards and sophisticated techniques involved in the art of makeup. The House philosophy to share and transmit knowledge stems from the conviction that creativity is nothing without technique. Creating, teaching and educating: at Make Up For Ever, the talent of an artist can only develop when technique has been completely mastered.
