In today’s post I wanted to introduce you to Majenta Beauty, a mother and daughter team that was founded by Jayne Lyons when she realised there was a gap in the market for an innovative beauty brand and concept. Along with having their own range of products, Majenta also has a Roadshow Team for any event you might require a makeup artist for.
I’ve read about the company’s founding, but can you tell me more about what it’s like working with family?
It is amazing! It is like working with my mother, best friend and makeup lover all in one. We get on really well, and although we work very closely together, we also have our own roles. I focus on the marketing and promotional aspects of Majenta, with Mum being the founder of the brand and therefore she works closely on the product itself as well as developing the concept. The great thing is we see each other all the time, and whereas before we would meet for afternoon tea once every two weeks or so, we now see each other every week for meetings over tea and cake. Doesn’t help my figure though!
Have long have you worked with Majenta for?
I started working alongside Mum at the beginning of last year, and have been working as Marketing Director since the middle of last year. The best part of my job is I work with makeup everyday!
What gets you most excited about Majenta’s future?
Majenta is a new concept, and the response has been amazing. We are a mother and daughter showing other women that if you have a dream then you can achieve it. We do this job, because we wanted something different. Makeup is about colour and fun and being creative. Majenta is about colour and fun and being creative. What makes me excited? When I hear and see the beautiful imagery with our makeup I get butterflies.
What’s your favourite office tradition?
If you don’t have bright lips then bright nails it is! Everyone needs colour to brighten their day.
What can you tell me about your new products or plans for growth?
Majenta will be recruiting our Roadshow Team hopefully this summer, so we will definitely be coming to some towns and cities around the UK. We are also looking to open our flagship store in London towards the end of this year, and are in the process of finding the perfect location at the moment. We will also be introducing new colours every season, and new products each year, so Majenta will always be growing.
What’s your favourite part about working with Majenta?
My favourite part is working with my Mum, and working with Makeup every day. How can you not like your job role, when you wear a Majenta product and then someone compliments you on the colour. I still smile that I have been given this opportunity!
In my opinion this sounds like the dream job! I love that it is a family business, and they really care about their customers. The Majenta store caters for all your face, nails, lips, eyes and accessory needs! I’m currently loving this sheen lip colour (lipstick) in shade Kissmete:-
It’s such a dramatic, deep colour and simply gorgeous! Enriched with anti-oxidant and Vitamin E, your lips are guaranteed to stay hydrated and moisturised while the matte colour stays put. What’s your favourite product from the Majenta store?
