Ben Nye Cosmetics is a professional makeup brand created by former 20th Century Fox Makeup Director Ben Nye Sr. Manufactured in Los Angeles, the brand caters to professional makeup artists, providing quality theatrical makeup products.
With experience doing makeup in over 500 Hollywood films, Ben Nye's extensive knowledge of theatrical makeup inspired him to create new and innovative cosmetic products for working artists. As of 2015, the brand has been around for almost 50 years, and today the company is owned by Dana Nye, Ben's youngest son.
The company's most popular products include its HD foundations, concealers, countours and powders. Its Banana Powder attracted attention after Kim Kardashian's makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, revealed he uses it to achieve her stunning countour.
