Mac Cosmetics was founded in 1984 by two Canadians named Frank - make-up artist and photographer Frank Toskan and beauty salon owner Frank Angelo. Born from a desire to create make-up which held its own under the glare and heat of photography studio lights, it was originally created for professionals but soon gained such a popularity that it was launched to the general public soon after. 

There are now a whopping 1500 locations selling the brand in 78 different countries worldwide.
