Smashbox Cosmetics founders, brothers, Dean and Davis Factor, the great-grandsons of make-up legend Max Factor, combined their talent and heritage to create Smashbox Photo Studios in 1990. With a slew of starlets passing through the studios daily, Dean and Davis were frequently asked to create a make-up line that met the perfectionist needs of a photo shoot.
SmashBox believes that knowledge truly is a beautiful thing, and is just too good to keep to themselves. From finding beauty solutions and quick fixes to demystifying make-up application, they are inspired daily to create innovative beauty products for women everywhere.
Now it is available exclusively in Mayo at Petals Hair and Beauty on Bridge Street, Westport. The make-up line arrives just in time to celebrate the second anniversary of the Petals Hair, Beauty, Nail Bar and Barber Shop. The state-of-the-art premises, combined with expert brands in expert hands, have made Petals such a huge hit.
People travel far and wide to experience Petals, which is open seven days a week, plus late nights, and is also available to hire for parties, hens and Mummy and Me sessions.
