FIDM Students Compete in Futuristic Beauty Concept Contest
Cosmoprof North America, the leading business-to-business beauty trade show, is supporting FIDM's rising talent via a special collaboration with the college to reinforce innovation and continuous education in the ever-evolving world of beauty.
From mid-April through mid-June 2018, FIDM Beauty Marketing & Product Development and Graphic Design Students worked on developing unique concepts under the banner “Connected Beauty Concept of 2050”. Cosmoprof North America and FIDM invite you to vote for the idea you think is the "coolest and most likely to be a reality in 2050". The winning concept will be determined through public voting through July 6th, 2018. Learn more about the three finalists below:
Megan Satterfield and Shuihan Ding's Chroma "is the ultimate beauty device that instantly perfects, protects, and corrects the skin’s outermost layer utilizing a nanotech infused second-skin. Our handheld device allows users to customize their skin tone, providing a diverse selection of natural or vivid pigments and patterns to choose from, ultimately encouraging color fluidity. Our second skin layer masks all the skin’s imperfections, while simultaneously protecting and treating it with skincare and pollution/SPF properties. We give the customer freedom to enhance the skin while having it act as a canvas to create and express."
Carla Colunga and Laura Metzger's Kuali means “to be good” in Nahuatl. "We created a futuristic product that still feels human, a product that will be good for your skin and makes you feel good. The invisible Kuali patch is a thought control device applied to the bottom of your chin that projects any makeup look onto your face without the need for any cosmetics. With a simple thought, Kuali can change your look as many times as you want."
Alysha Freeze and Quiana Johnson's NU-YU is technology that protects you on earth and in space. "On earth you’re protected from UV rays and pollution. In space it protects against cosmic rays and debris also allowing you to breathe. Beauty add-ons can be purchased such as 3D printed make-up and skin health monitoring. NU-YU is activated by neural lace mesh technology that dissolves into the bloodstream to form a brain computer interface. Mesh is dissolved by consuming an edible water sphere or dissolvable sticker. When activated by thinking, it projects an invisible force field for protection."
The three finalists’ concepts will be featured exclusively at the show while the winning team will be in attendance to present their concept in a complimentary session during Cosmoprof North America on Monday July 30, in Las Vegas.
