Welsh make-up sisters strike Mean Girls deal in Hollywood

Welsh make-up sisters strike Mean Girls deal in Hollywood

Two sisters from Barry who started their business out of a garage are now heading to Hollywood with their Mean Girls inspired make-up brushes.

The latest offering from Spectrum Collections, set to release at the end of the month, is based on the decade old teen comedy movie Mean Girls.

The brushes, which come in shades like hot and pearl pink, aquamarine and lavender, are made using synthetic hair, making them cruelty free and vegan friendly.

Sophie, 28, and Hannah, 29, were both big fans of the 2004 film, which starred Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams.

They were interested in creating a range based around the movie, so approached Paramount directly with their idea, and the rest is history.

Hannah said: "We're both huge fans of the film and it fits perfectly with our brand so to get an official collaboration was such an achievement. It was very exciting for us to announce the project as we've been working on it for a year."

A three-year deal has been signed with the Hollywood studio and the initial release is just the first of many planned over the year.

Spectrum brushes will also be featured in this year's Britain's Next Top Model which airs next month.

The brand has built up an incredible following, mainly through social media, with more than 236,000 followers on Instagram alone.

Spectrum now has seven members of staff, including the sisters, at their offices in Barry, and the business is worth over £8 million.
