Introducing Mel O’Reilly as judge for our Lash Lift category in this year’s Lash Festival. Mel started in the beauty industry with OPI and fell in love with all things beauty after working at The London Beauty Show. Despite working full time for corporate companies throughout my career and having two children, Mel completed part-time courses in the evenings and at weekends to pursue her passion for beauty. Mel was lucky enough to have trained with the founder of The Eyelash Emporium and was immediately hooked.
After years of successful freelance work Mel knew it was time to up my game and qualify as an educator to share my passion and pass it on to others. Mel is now the owner of her own salon and training academy in the South West of England. Mel loves the passion within The Eyelash Emporium for knowledge and continual improvement so it was a no brainer when she decided who to educate on behalf of. With training she is able to enrich others through teaching a fantastic skill which is something she loves.
Mel finds the art of lashes a wonderfully creative skill that allows each technician to give their client a new look and an instant boost.
