HUN­DREDS of scream­ing fans headed to the Arn­dale for the of­fi­cial open­ing of a new make-up store.

Fans queued around the Manch­ester shop­ping cen­tre to see Manch­ester make-up artists Mm­m­mitchell and Paige as the so­cial me­dia sen­sa­tions launched the new Mor­phe store on the ground floor.

The US make-up brand has opened its first Manch­ester store in the Arn­dale, tak­ing over what was pre­vi­ously Clin­ton Cards, and beauty in­flu­encers Mm­m­mitchell and Paige were thrilled to per­form the of­fi­cial rib­bon cut­ting.

They also held a meet-and-greet with 250 com­pe­ti­tion win­ners in their home city.

Paige, whose full name is Paige Louise Wil­liams, kick-started her own make-up em­pire with a £5,000 loan and earned £6m in her first year thanks to her cult £10 eye base which claims to keep eye­shadow in place without cak­ing or creas­ing.

The for­mer Fair­field High School pupil pre­vi­ously worked as a cashier for MAC in Sel­fridges at the Traf­ford Cen­tre.

The make-up guru, from Droyls­den, who has more than 200,000 In­sta­gram fol­low­ers, also launched the P. Louise Makeup Acad­emy in Den­ton in 2014.

Mitchell, from Bolton, was a mem­ber of a boy­band that made it to the boot­camp stage on the X Fac­tor in 2016 and a year later he landed a spot star­ring on the US re­al­ity show Amer­i­can Beauty

Star and was men­tored by Bey­once’s make-up artist Sir John. He now trav­els the world host­ing make-up mas­ter­classes and has more than a mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers.

At the launch, Mitchell let Paige do the hon­ours and cut the rib­bon on her own.

And she said on In­sta­gram about the mo­ment: “To­day was the big­gest mo­ment of my ca­reer.”
