If you haven't heard of hip Swedish brand Make Up Store then your missing out. Make Up Store is one of the leading cosmetics franchises in Scandinavia. Founder, owner and front man Mika Liias has come a long way since opening his first store in Stockholm in 1996. The concept hasn't changed from the start; the idea is still to provide the customer with personal service, competent advice and top quality products at affordable prices.

Today Make Up Store has over 130 stores worldwide. The brand first landed on Irish Shores last year occupying a counter space in the bustling cosmetic area in Arnotts and hasn't looked back since.

Make up Store is young and fresh with a range of sleek products from lip balms, eye shadows through to skincare and hair care. Eager to tell everyone about their great on trend products and get into all the right make-up artists bags Make Up Store will be popping into Portobello Institute to speak to our full time Make-up Artistry students on Monday 22nd November.
