L'Oréal Paris Announces ‘L'Oréal Paris League of Experts’

L'Oréal Paris has announced its new artistry-focused collective, the 'L'Oréal Paris League of Experts.' The collective will be comprised of top industry talent who will contribute to the brand's artistic vision through their various areas of beauty expertise.

The L'Oréal Paris League of Experts is being unveiled with three initial members—Allan AvendañoClaudia Betancur and Erica Taylor—each of whom bring a unique makeup artistry perspective to the brand. Avendaño is known for his editorial and red-carpet expertise, having worked with some of the top talent in Hollywood. Betancur is one of the most prominent celebrity makeup artists in the Latin market, with more than 30 years of industry experience. Rounding out the League of Experts is Taylor, a veteran makeup artist, who has a deep-rooted knowledge in the industry and has quickly become a trusted expert on social media in recent years, sharing her makeup tips and tricks with her more than 1M engaged followers.

Each will be leveraged as an always-on expert for the brand and spotlighted alongside key brand launches and initiatives. This group of experts will be tapped for everything from creating red carpet looks during key tentpole moments and having a presence at influencer events to providing digital-first educational content. Together, with the brand, they will continue to highlight their individual, expert points of view and support the brand's worth equity.

On the creation of this collective, Ali Goldstein, L'Oréal Paris, U.S. brand president, notes, "We are thrilled to announce the launch of our League of Experts and welcome makeup artists Allan, Claudia, and Erica to our L'Oréal Paris family. Establishing a collective will allow us to better reach and engage with our consumers in a way that feels approachable and relatable. Each artist in the League of Experts, in their unique way, upholds and empowers our brand values of beauty, worth, and inclusivity—helping to inspire others to look and feel their most beautiful. We look forward to further expanding the collective and going beyond makeup to serve our consumers at every step of their beauty journey."

"I'm so proud to represent L'Oréal Paris as part of the League of Experts. Not only is the brand a leader of innovation and quality in the beauty industry, but L'Oréal Paris also celebrates diversity and inclusivity, catering to all individuals, all identities, and all cultures, which is so important to me. My vision for being a part of the League of Experts is to continue to champion inclusivity and bring a fresh take on how makeup can enrich people's lives and empower them," notes Avendaño.

On joining the League of Experts, Betancur says, "L'Oréal Paris is the number-one global beauty brand and being part of this family fills my heart with pride and truly makes me happy. I am passionate about teaching the art of beauty to empower individuals with self-confidence and self-love and impart the great meaning behind 'because you're worth it!'"

Taylor adds, "I am excited to use my social platform and this partnership with L'Oréal Paris to teach women about attainable luxury. I have held many roles where I have worked with clients, models, and celebrities, but my favorite is always helping the woman who forgot about herself because she was too busy helping everyone else. I love making her comfortable and teaching her to feel beautiful, and through the L'Oréal Paris League of Experts I get to reach so many more women to share this message."

Allan, Claudia, and Erica have officially joined the brand. This initial group of talent will begin to be leveraged during several upcoming brand activations, including the Cannes Film Festival.
