WATCH: Napoleon Perdis says: Lights! Camera Finish! Action!

Beauty Launchpad caught up with Napoleon Perdis to find out about Camera Finish Powder Foundation's new upgrade and check out his recently expanded L.A. Makeup Academy. The flagship Hollywood Boulevard location now includes a working photo studio and a fully equipped event space.  "Education has always been the foundation of my brand," says Perdis. "It's essential for our students to understand a 360 degree perspective of being a successful makeup artist; from building and maintaining a portfolio to being part of a backstage-fit team, to working to a brief, and constantly seeking inspiration from far and wide. I wanted to ensure that we were offering a truly state-of-the-art education facility."Napoleon Perdis' popular Camera Finish Powder Foundation is wearing a glamorous new gold coat and the formula has also been treated to an upgrade. Perdis explains, "It's far and away our best-selling foundation and has been for years. It really is phenomenal coverage as it conceals, mattifies, and sets to create the perfect canvas while being the perfect touch-up tool through the day {and night)." Why did Napoleon tweak the formula? "I didn't need to, I wanted to! We ever-so-slightly tweaked the Camera Finish formulation by amping it up with an anti-aging complex and ingredients like Goji Berry Extract and Vitamins C and E to nurture the skin, boost clarity, and help finesse fine lines.  It's Camera Finish 2012!"
