The World’s First Makeup Museum Is Opening in New York City Next Year

Tickets go on sale in March, 2020.

Next year, the Makeup Museum will launch the world’s first exhibition in New York City on May, 2020, dedicated to the history of beauty and its ongoing impact on society. The flagship will commence with an immersive “Pink Jungle: 1950s Makeup in America” installation, which will explore the entrepreneurs, icons and artifacts of the decade. Executive Director and co-founder Doreen Bloch says in 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.”

Visitors can expect an immersive experience at the upcoming exhibition that will showcase vintage artifacts and robust educational information, alongside aesthetic spaces and unique events. Brand sponsors will play a special role in featuring never-before-seen elements of makeup history, such as Erno Laszlo’s collection of facial products used by Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo.

Tickets go on sale in March 2020 and the early access waitlist is currently live on the Makeup Museum’s website.

In related news, London’s Design Museum has announced its upcoming exhibition program, including “Prada. Front and Back.”
