Now a celebrity makeup artist, Amanda Jacobellis started out by studying art and fashion design. This member of the television, film, and print industries often appears on channels such as E! and Fox. She's also been a guest on Access Hollywood, a show that explores the lives of famous people by looking at their keychains. But before she rubbed elbows with the stars, she pioneered a safer eyelash extension technique known as LAshX. Her product includes the first oil- and glycol-free cleanser and formaldehyde-free adhesive. In 2007, she opened Makeup Mandy where her lash extension system enhances beauty treatments from makeup applications to up-dos and waxing.
