New advertising campaign for Cosmoprof Network

Cosmoprof presents the new advertising campaign for the next editions, created by Heads Collective.

Each of us has a personality with many different aspects which make-up can either hide or bring out and emphasise. The colours represent the different editions of Cosmoprof: lilac for Bologna, green for Las Vegas, red for Hong Kong and yellow for the new Mumbai edition.

The same interplay of shapes and colours is at the heart of the campaign video, directed by Francesco Meneghini, with close-ups and large-scale shots of the models emphasising the transitions between the made-up part and the natural part of their faces. In keeping with the Cosmoprof …
