Amanda Jacobellis / Owner & Founder

Amanda is founder and owner of Makeup Mandy, “The Eyelash Bar to the Stars”-(E!), and creator of LAshX, “The Luxury Brand in Eyelash Extensions and After Care.” In 2007, Amanda recognized her personal lifelong dream of opening her own business.

Amanda has worked to perfect her art, and has been recognized as an expert in her field – designing beauty looks, and creating lush eyelash extensions. As a celebrity makeup artist she regularly works in the television, print, and film industries. Her background is in fine arts and fashion design.

As a pioneer in the field of eyelash extensions, Amanda realized that there was a huge need for safer products and techniques. Revolutionizing the industry with her own line of lash extension application products, LAshX® was born with the mission of offering the highest quality, health promoting products that deliver the most realistic and longest lasting results in the world of lashes. For the past 4 years, Amanda has dedicated herself to improving lash extension safety, products, and procedures, from pioneering a technique of lash extensions, which give lush, glamorous eyelashes for 6-8 weeks at a time, to the creation of the first ever oil and glycol-free LashX® Cleanse and formaldehyde-free adhesive.

Today, Amanda’s passion is to educate professionals worldwide on lash health, safety, and the LAshX® Method™, as well as to provide the latest technology in lash extension application through the LAshX® product line. She is a frequent guest on E!, Fox, EXTRA, Access Hollywood, Inside Edition and In Touch Weekly where her work has been featured.
