Kryolan might be one of the makeup world's best kept secrets, a tool of the trade that has long eluded the non-professional customers. With a legacy spanning over six decades, the German brand (based in Berlin) has built a reputation within the theater and film communities for highly-pigmented, waterproof, and camera-ready formulations, especially its hardy Dermacolor concealing collection. 16,000 products and 750 hues later, Kryolan is expanding into brick-and-mortar in the US, opening its third store in the country in Boston's Back Bay last month.

Under the catchphrase "makeup is a science," Kryolan focuses on high-tech solutions for on-camera issues—which conveniently often overlap with those of the treacherous change of seasons in Boston, Halloween costumes, and even wedding and boudoir shoots. From glow-in-the-dark lip color to tattoo-disguising foundation, chances are Kryolan will have a solution for your cosmetic woes.
