blackUp Paris is a cosmetic line that has various products from skin care to make up products. blackUp Paris face primer and foundation are one of their best selling products and has given them great recognition. Yearly, blackUp organizes a master class in different parts of the world where their products are sold with their guests ranging from make-up artists to bloggers. The master class is usually an opportunity to introduce new products and show the guests & fans how to effectively apply its new products. After every class, everyone gets a bag with sample products to try out.
This year, the blackUp master class took place at Federal Palace Hotel & Casinos, Victoria Island. On arrival, guests were met with models placed on plaques as mannequins wearing different bold looks created by the blackUp Paris team using the new launched products. The creation of each look was meticulously broken down by David Coranson-Beaudu, one of blackUp’s international make-up artists who also officially introduced the new products by using stylist, Jane Michael as his model.
Here are the newly introduced products.
