Official Stockist of Napoleon Perdis

Napoleon Perdis is an Australian-born, Hollywood-based makeup artist who has been transforming the faces, makeup bags, and lives of women for over 20 years. A self-taught makeup artist, he founded the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy — 'the Harvard of makeup' — in 1993. There are currently five campuses in Australia and one in California.

Perdis considers education to be one of his greatest inspirations and the lifeblood of his brand. This value infuses everything he offers, from the training for his makeup artists to the academy courses and workshops for both professionals and the everyday woman. Even the pro tips that appear in advertising and on product packages serve to educate the customer. Perdis continues to be inspired by trends in fashion, music, art, and popular culture, yet he is committed to translating the directional into the doable.

Perdis was always fascinated by the transformation that well-applied makeup could have on a woman. From an early age, he enjoyed helping his glamorous mother prepare for a night on the town. He followed different beauty trends through the years and, in 1995, opened his first concept store in Sydney, Australia.

Perdis' flagship store carried a full cosmetics collection, and he became known for his brilliant makeup palettes. As word of mouth spread, he soon found himself doing editorial work for magazines and television, and the world took notice. Perdis has since gained a reputation as a leader in the cosmetics industry.

While the Napoleon Perdis philosophy is strongly influenced by fashion, the brand is about translating the runway into reality and about celebrating and elevating your natural beauty with confidence-building cosmetics. Products boast built-in educators and pro tips, all charged with a feel-fabulous message of female empowerment. In 2011, Perdis penned a successful makeup manual, 'Forever Flawless'.
