Marissa Carter launched the Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter tanning range five years ago. In that time the brand has grown to be the leading express tan in Ireland, the UK, and Sweden. Cocoa Brown can be found in 23 countries and 20,000 retailers worldwide. Bigger, bolder, better, is Cocoa Brown’s motto. The average rate of growth of false tanning worldwide is 15 per cent year on year. For Cocoa Brown, it’s 35 per cent. www.cocoabrown.ie

This September Marissa expanded her beauty empire with the Carter Beauty Cosmetics brand. Carter Beauty Cosmetics is an all-encompassing brand, with 103 make-up bag must-haves at budget-friendly prices. Like Cocoa Brown, the range is cruelty-free with products ranging from €3.95 to €14.95. From long lasting, jet black gel liner to high pigment, easy to blend shadows and colour pop matte lipsticks, the Carter Beauty brand has something for everyone. www.carterbeautycosmestics.com
