So tell us about yourself ? ...
“Hey, I’m Donna Bell, I’m the CEO of Lash Amoré ltd”, I’m an Eyelash specialist with 12 years industry knowledge and experience”.
“I teach by day and lash by night”. I mean how can you teach a skill you don’t actually do”.
Why are you in the beauty industry?
“So it first started when I become a single mum of two young children. I had many jobs, all of which just paid the bills. I thought hmmm, I can do better here let’s learn some skills, I’ll learn lashes (an many other skills, that I didn’t really take too).
How did you get into teaching ?
Well I knew I was good at what I done, but it was my friend Wilma Dunn who saw further potential in me and pushed me into this role. I didn’t think I would be good enough cos I don’t speak with a plum. (thought I was too common) turns out I’m amazing at what I do and can interact really well with my students, which isn’t easy it has to come naturally.
No one wants a FAKE trainer, who’s there for the pay packet
What do you enjoy about teaching ?
I love to share my passion and skills with others, developing them into successful specialist like myself.
Who inspires you?
Honestly? Don’t laugh! My daughters.
I am a single mum too two beautiful, caring girls who inspire me to be the best I can be which is honestly the most amazing feeling. They are My little sidekicks that always encourage me to do more, (they’ve even asked me to go on dragons den, haha ....) they watch me work hard and never complain, offer to help. So when you receive a package just bare a little thought that their little fingers helped there.
If this wasn’t your job, what would you be ?
Hehehe.. well I love this Job and can’t imagine doing anything else... however if I had to choose, I’d be an eco warrior an go to the beach and collect all the litter to stop the marine life suffering.

Where you from ?
Hailing from a beautiful seaside town called Portstewart in Northern Ireland, I’m Holly Martinez and the owner of Skin Glow Aesthestics. I’ve been in the beauty industry for over 20 years and originally trained in my level 3 after an eventful Brazilian wax! As soon as I qualified I started a small mobile beauty business alongside my job in media.
What made you join the beauty industry?
Throughout my career I’ve managed beauty departments, working with some of the best beauty brands and training the brow teams for Benefit Cosmetics. My love of a great brow lead me to train as a Microblading artist to create a more semi-permanent look for my clients. Seeing the difference a perfectly created symmetrical brow made to a clients face sparked my interested in aesthetics. When you place the start, arch and end of an eyebrow in the correct place this balances the eyes, slims the nose and gives an eye and cheek lift. Aesthetics would allow me to enhance the natural beauty of my clients, balance symmetry and help regain a youthful look.
One of the most important parts of aesthetics is understanding the anatomy & physiology of the face and body. Thankfully I had a good understanding of this through my Bachelors Degree in Sport & Fitness and previous training as a Personal trainer, however I undertook an advanced A&P course to refresh and extend my knowledge.
Aesthetics training is intense and I studied for months before being allowed to complete treatments on models. I would encourage anyone considering having an aesthetics treatment to ask the practitioner about their training and experience so you know you’re in safe hands.
I wanted to be able to offer the best service to my clients and trained to an advanced level which required practicing on a large numbers of models and completing case studies to qualify.
I call my treatments ‘tweakments’ as I fully believe in enhancing our natural beauty to be the best version of ourselves. Often clients say they get so many compliments on how ‘fresh’ they look which makes them feel amazing.
I absolutely adore my job. There isn’t a tweakment I offer that I haven’t tried myself so I know exactly how it feels, what the results will be and what it takes to achieve a desired result.
My Aesthestics Tips:
Always check out a practitioners work to see if you like what they create.
Ask for details of their training and insurance.
Filler attracts water and I recommend 2-3 litres a day to keep filler soft, plump and longer lasting.
Alcohol can have a negative impact on the outcome of your treatments.
Always follow your pre and post care instructions for best results.
