Napoleon Perdis has always sought to democratize makeup, ever since picking up his first brush, at the age of 13 to help his glamorous mother primp for an evening out. Fast forward to 1995 and the opening of his first concept store on Sydney’s Oxford Street, the vibrant specialty shop held a full cosmetics collection. Vivid, vivacious color soon became his trademark, and Napoleon’s reputation soon propelled him into editorial work for magazines and television, allowing him to spread his glamour gospel and make trends accessible for all.
Napoleon and his creative team have become backstage regulars at both New York and Australian Fashion Weeks where he works with top designers to create and communicate the trends of the season. While the Napoleon Perdis philosophy is strongly influenced by fashion, the brand is about runway and reality. It’s about celebrating and elevating your natural beauty with confidence-building products. Products boast built-in educators and pro-tips and are charged with a ‘feel-fabulous!’ message of female empowerment.
In addition to managing Napoleon Perdis, NP Set and the makeup academies, Napoleon is a regular contributor to the highly prestigiousHuffington Post.com and also remains an in-demand makeup artist with an array of devoted clients.
Napoleon has received many accolades for his contribution to the beauty business. Most recently, he received a Genius Award from ELLE US magazine and the International Achievement Award from the prestigious Fashion Group International for being a leader in his field.
