NIC was honoured by the presence of Kryolan’s Kim Franzini, their Pacific Sales representative, and the talented Jordan Plath, a make-up artist with over 20 years of incredible experience working in the creative, retail and commercial worlds and is a member of the Kryolan Professional Make-up USA team. Jordan serves as a FX Make-up Specialist and Head of the (US) National Education program, where he teaches a variety of workshops including airbrush, theatrical make-up and special effects.
Jordan talked about their amazing brand, how it was created and how manufacturing has evolved to this day. He told us about how it was created by Arnold Langer, a man passionate about professional theatre makeup. Kryolan now has many SKUs in their catalog and their product line ranges from beauty to Special FX. Our students were provided with two amazing makeup demos to showcase Kryolan products during which time Jordan shared some great tips, insights, techniques and knowledge.
Kryolan is a global cosmetics company handling two-thirds of world-wide production for professional makeup for film, TV and theater. In their own words:
At Kryolan, we make make-up. But not like anybody else. Because unlike everybody else, we actually make our make-up. We‘ve done it our own way for more than 70 years and three generations. We think of it. We manufacture it. Formulate it and love it into existence. There is only one real professional make-up maker. There is only one Kryolan.
It was a true pleasure to host this great duo, and to see Jordan in action. We’re glad you could join us for this event, and hope you enjoy many more at New Image College soon.
