In May 2020 the Makeup Museum will launch its first exhibition in New York City. Fully dedicated to the history of beauty and how it impacts our society. The first installation is called “Pink Jungle: 1950s Makeup in America” diving into the icons, entrepreneurs, and artifacts of this decade. 

What to expect at the Makeup Museum in NYC

💄 Quoting Doreen Bloch, the museum’s Executive Director and co-founder from a press release, “The Makeup Museum is a critical institution for the cultural landscape in New York because makeup has a 10,000-year history. There is so much that the Makeup Museum wants and has to explore. The 1950s is a perfect time period for the Makeup Museum to start within the debut exhibition because the 1950s is the birth of the modern cosmetics industry.”

The museum is working closely with brand sponsors who will also play a significant role in the exhibitions. Visitors will get to experience never-before-seen pieces of makeup history. Have you ever heard of a collection of Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo’s facial products by Erno Laszlo? Go check it out at the Makeup Museum in NYC. Also, visitors will find vintage makeup artifacts, are able to educate themselves about the aesthetic of beauty’s rich history with stunning educational material and so much more.
