No longer just for creating fatter versions of Eddie Murphy, makeup is now also considered a means to enhance the viability of panda-bear political candidates and to discreetly hide the facial tattoos of mimes. Follow in the trailblazing footsteps of adorable state senators with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $70 worth of eyelash and makeup services, facials, and more at Makeup Mandy, located in West Hollywood.
Creator of the LAshX Method for prolonging the life of lash extensions, film and TV makeup veteran and Makeup Mandy owner Amanda Jacobellis has polished the silky skins of several celebrity clients, including Adrien Brody and Vivica A. Fox, and has been featured on MTV, the TV Guide Channel, and more. Peepers get an eye-lashing with the natural-hair Party Lash service, which applies individual bristles and clusters for one-night enhancement ($25). Face artistes doll up eyes and complexions during the mini makeover ($65).
Like obviously stalling spelling-bee contestants, clients ask for and receive definitions of their own eyebrows during the eyebrow waxing ($30) and threading ($20 and up) services. The bikini wax ($25 and up) and Brazilian treatment ($60 and up) help strip lower halves of unwanted hair. Makeup Mandy can also tame and style unruly manes ($100 and up), sunlessly tan hides with the airbrush bronzing ($65), and treat skin to some tender-loving exfoliation with a host of facials.

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.
