“I WANTED AN EXCLUSIVE MAKE-UP BRAND THAT OFFERS CUSTOMERS A PROFESSIONAL’S EXPERTISE AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE”
After his training and work as an assistant at the Bern make-up school, Beni Durrer moved to Estée Lauder as a make-up trainer. In the mid-1990s the opening of the first counter for the cult brand M.A.C. Cosmetics in the KaDeWe department store takes him to Berlin for the first time. He immediately falls in love with the pulsating flair of the recently reunified, aspiring metropolis. Following several positions at Lancaster, Cartier, Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein and Jil Sander, among others, Durrer travels around the world as a trainer and make-up artist for Yves Saint Laurent. In 2001 he returns to Berlin and sets up his own business.
After training to be a beautician, Beni Durrer opens up a beauty studio in Berlin-Schöneberg just a few minutes’ walk away from the KaDeWe. In the same year, he finishes off his international make-up artist career by founding a beauty range. Shortly afterwards, the BENI DURRER MAKE-UP SCHOOL opens, one of the largest make-up schools in Europe today, which has been offering first-class professional and practical training courses for roughly 15 years.
With a particular emphasis on high quality and on the basis of his many years of experience as a make-up artist Durrer develops his product ranges in the context of sustainability and the latest scientific findings and they are produced without any animal testing in Germany. High quality ingredients, sophisticated workmanship and an exceptional variety of colours guarantee first-class skin care and professional make-up.
