Born in the Australian outback to Italian parents, makeup artist Vincent Longo developed an eye color very early in his life. When Longo’s family returned to Italy, Longo developed his creativity at the Makeup Studio of Milano before working for the likes of Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Gianfranco Ferre. Longo’s golden reputation spread all the way to New York, where he created looks for high-profile magazines and legendary models. Longo eventually decided to make his runway-ready makeup looks available to women at large. After successfully concocting several products in his kitchen, Longo officially launched Vincent Longo Cosmetics in 1994. Longo’s rejuvenating lipstick and lip stain, luxurious foundation and concealer, and blushes and luxury eye color have impressed the likes of celebs Michelle Williams, Courtney Cox, and Gwyneth Paltrow and other fashionable women worldwide.
