Kryolan. Make-up is a Science.

There is only one real professional make-up maker. There is only one Kryolan.

Kryolan have been supplying the film, theater and television industries for over sixty-six years, which makes them one of the world’s first professional make-up brands. They're still the number one choice for make-up artists today, thanks to their extensive range of over 16,000 high-quality make-up products and accessories.

Kryolan’s chemists have been developing our professional range from their headquarters in Berlin for over six decades. During this time, they've created and perfected 750 color-intense shades in over 16,000 products, which are currently used in more than 80 countries in every continent worldwide.

Their qualified chemists are continuously developing new products and looking for raw materials with exceptional qualities – which led to the development of our Dermacolor range, attracting the attention of clinical dermatologists all over the world.

The Professional Difference

What sets Kryolan apart from other make-up brands, professional or otherwise, is their dedication to meeting professional make-up artists’ needs and demands. Every sector has its own expectations, for example theatrical make-up must be extremely hard-wearing, so we only produce formulas that can perform under industry pressures:

  • Every one of their color-true products stands up on stage and on camera, even under HD lighting and filming conditions
  • All their products are very long-lasting, yet still comfortable to wear
  • Every formula they develop is highly pigmented and color-intense
  • They use ingredients of highest purity for unbeatable skin compatibility
  • They guarantee color continuity, which means you can recreate similar looks again and again
  • Their brand offers the highest degree of product safety and reliability – perfect for the professional environment
  • A large number of their products are also suitable for everyday wear.

Vampire Girl

A beautiful and bloodthirsty metamorphosis

  • Step 1
    Smooth out HD Micro Foundation Cream (100) uniformly over the face with Premium Foundation Brush, and apply Anti-Shine Powder. Draw blue veins on the cheekbones and temples. Mix the ideal shade for this from the Body Illustration Make-up Color Palette 10 Colors. Mix a little more green (TK2) from the Body Illustration Make-up Color Palette 10 Colors and use it to discreetly contour the eye sockets and the cheekbones.
  • Step 2
    Accentuate the cheekbones with Supracolor 8 ml (32 A) and additionally shade them with Supracolor 8 ml (101). Use a makeup sponge to apply a thick layer of Blusher (youth red) onto the cheeks and under the eyes. The bright pores of the complexion should remain visible. Then blend out over a large area on the face. For the smoky eyes, apply Viva Matt Color (black pepper) on the eyelids and under the eyes, and blend. Dab Lipstick Fashion (LF 429) onto the lips – but intentionally not too accurately. Apply black Faceliner (10) on the lower and upper waterline.
  • Step 3
    Apply Mascara Color Intensifier (black) to the eyelashes. Insert color contact lenses and B1 false eyelashes to the upper lashline. Vampire teeth round everything out. Use Ultra Setting Spray to fix the look so that it lasts longer.
