Location, location, location! It’s important in the home that you choose, and the home you choose for your business.
Mandy Jacobellis, CEO of Makeup Mandy and President of LAshX, has always called Melrose her home and it’s been a cornerstone of her success. I’m so excited to have her join the Long Beach ISSE girl boss panel and share what went into choosing her dream location and much much more.
Mandy holds a special place in my heart because her Melrose studio was the first to use my vanities to light up her artistry with her clients. Countless production crews head to Makeup Mandy when filming beauty expert segments and she is constantly named as a Red Carpet must-see when it comes to award season primping.

Fun Fact: Makeup Mandy’s Melrose studio currently has a collection of black and white Vanity girl Broadway vanities lighting up their storefront window and artist wall.
How We Met: Mandy’s first studio was located at the end of my block where I live in West Hollywood (@Melrose) and I walked in and introduced myself and my vanity mirror idea. She was the first fellow beauty boss to believe in me.
Favorite Makeup Mandy Product & Service: Lashes, lashes, lashes! I love heading over for Party Lashes before an event from a Makeup Mandy lasher. As far as product, her Eye Do’s line of falsies is a luxurious way to DIY event-worthy lashes.
