We are happy to celebrate our 50th Anniversary!
Ben Nye, Sr. began our company in 1967, following his illustrious career as a Hollywood makeup artist that began with "Gone With the Wind" and finished with "Planet of the Apes".
He utilized his artistic talents as Makeup Director for 20th Century Fox, plus four decades of experience, to design makeup for the next generations of makeup artists in film, TV, stage and fashion.
From the beginning, Ben designed colors essential for working professionals. While working as Assistant on "Gone with the Wind", he had to blend shades for actors of color, including Hattie McDaniel.  Decades later, he was inspired to create foundations and contours for ethnic performers.  Ben designed concealers, such as Mellow Yellow® and Five O' Sharp® Beard Cover, to conceal redness, dark under-eye circles and troublesome beard shadows. Maroon, Blood Red and Sunburn Stipple are Ben Nye originals still essential to artists fifty years later.

Today, Ben Nye Makeup is an innovative, global leader in the professional market.  We remain family-owned with manufacturing headquarters in Los Angeles. We produce one of the broadest lines of professional makeup today with hundreds of beautiful and useful products and colors!
