Makeup the way it's meant to be
AW03 Maquillage was originally created in New York for Artists Within Makeup Academy which was available exclusively to the Academy. Over the years the line has grown and started a life of it's own in many different retail locations. We carry a wide range of colors and products to suit everyone’s needs. Professional artists and clients alike are celebrating the line.
‘AW03’ which has been many years in the making has been designed to use for everything from everyday makeup, to photographic or television work. It is highly pigmented, hypoallergenic, blends beautifully and gives an outstanding finish. Colors are updated seasonally with a strong runway influence, which retains a modern vibe to the line. The vast majority of the products are mineral based offering a true technological innovation. The high tech formulas keep any application looking radiant and smooth.
