When we think of leading make up brands, we don’t automatically think of Ireland. The global market is controlled by a small number of very large international players. But on researching this post I was very pleasantly surprised with the fantastic make up offerings that we have on our doorstop. This list of fabulous Irish make up brands gives us the perfect opportunity to support Irish and look fabulous in the process!
It is more important now than ever that we make it our duty to support local businesses. It is estimated that over €4 billion was spent by Irish consumers on International online stores last year. My mission with this ‘Support Irish’ series is to showcase the best that Irish retail has to offer while educating consumers and making it simple and easy for you to support local businesses.
Here are 7 beautiful Irish make up brands that you can support online today:
