At Iris Store + Studio, we believe that beauty is a feeling rather than a look. Our mission is to provide a truly unique and unforgettable experience that combines the highest quality, internationally renowned beauty products with the ultimate 'old school' customer service experience. Warm, welcoming and knowledgeable.

We want our customers to feel a sense of belonging, from the moment they walk through our doors to the moment they leave. We stock a thoughtfully considered range of products which we know our customers will love, and we're passionate about sharing our knowledge and expertise. Whether you're looking for the latest trends in makeup, the perfect skincare regimen, or a luxurious fragrance to make you feel your best, we've got you.





"As a woman in her mid-forties, I’m happy to see other women having fun with make-up and not feeling constrained by what someone of their age is “supposed” to look like."⁠




With over 18 years of experience in the beauty industry, Hannah is a qualified and experienced makeup artist who was seeking a new challenge in the world of beauty. Despite her desire to remain in her hometown of Wellington, options were limited for someone with her exceptionally varied skill set and experience.

When David Jones closed its doors in July 2022, beauty enthusiasts in Wellington were left with few options for purchasing skincare, makeup, and fragrance in person. As a "small city" many internationally renowned brands were also not readily available to try in Wellington. As someone who values the in-store experience for beauty and has exceptionally high standards for customer service, Hannah saw an opportunity to merge the two with the opening of Iris Store + Studio.

As the founder and creative force behind the business, Hannah is committed to providing customers with a fun, personalised and positive experience when shopping for beauty that is unlike any other in New Zealand.

“Women can be their harshest critic when it comes to beauty, and much of the industry fuels this. I want to shift this and help more women feel great in the skin they're in, with high quality, effective products that feel amazing."

Hannah Wiles, founder.
