L’Oréal’s journey began over a century ago, and it’s a tale of passion, innovation, and dedication to empowering individuals through beauty. Founded by Eugène Schueller, a young chemist, L’Oréal started as a small company specializing in hair dye products. Little did Schueller know that his modest venture would evolve into a global beauty empire.
MAC Cosmetics, short for Makeup Art Cosmetics, was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1984. The brand was founded by Frank Toskan and Frank Angelo, two makeup artists who were frustrated by the lack of quality cosmetics that could withstand the rigors of a photoshoot. Determined to create makeup that would cater to the needs of professionals, they embarked on a journey that would redefine the beauty industry.
