NYX Professional Makeup collaborates with Daniel Bauer for makeup scholarship
Cosmetics brand NYX Professional Makeup has joined forces with Mumbai-based makeup artist Daniel Bauer for Pride Month to launch a month-long campaign and provide a makeup scholarship.
NYX Professional Makeup will provide a scholarship to Daniel Bauer’s Makeup Academy, based in Mumbai and Delhi, worth Rs 1.5 lakh ($2,034.39) to a member or supporter of the LGBTQ community, the brand announced. The scholarship is designed to uplift the community and find new talent.
“I found acceptance in the world of makeup and I have found enormous happiness from my life in India,” makeup artist, hair stylist, and educator Bauer told Vogue India. “I want to give back to the community who has given me so much… I set up my makeup academy so that I would have the best makeup academy in India and I want to give a fully paid scholarship at my academy to a deserving artist of the LGBTQ community. It’s a hard time for many people during this Covid-19 lockdown, especially those in the makeup field.”
Bauer will also personally mentor the winner of the scholarship, he said. He will also go live on NYX Professional Makeup’s Instagram account on June 26 to promote the campaign and its values.
