A TikTok mum who set up her own lashes and cosmetics company is expanding her range once more in a Preston shopping centre.
Meggi Lashes was founded by Meggi Morgan in 2020 when the young businesswoman went on her own hunt for affordable lashes. With only a £300 investment Meggi is now a popular brand known nationwide and expands year on year.
The soon-to-be mum-of-two has taken a unique approach to her business model by offering her products on the road and in vending machines. Meggi’s business has rapidly grown in that last 2 years and she has since more than doubled her initial 11 beauty vending machines across the UK.
Preston has become one of the latest cities to be given a bright pink vending machine stocked up with false lashes, beauty tools and cosmetics. Shoppers in St George’s Centre can find the vending machine located on the third floor.
The machine is hard to miss but has been station by the entrance to the shopping centre’s car park. CoventryLive says the 22-year-old’s lashes start from £2.99 and there are around 100 lash styles available as well as other products such as lip-glosses and beauty blenders.
Meggi hasn’t stopped at vending machine and has thought of a quirky way to get her business accessible to all around the country. As well as the shopping centre locations, Meggi also has a pink customised van- a shop-on-wheels – which she drives around the country visiting different cities and event locations.
The business has a huge TikTok following of 834.5K follower and 114.1 million likes. Meggi posted a video of the Preston machine as she stocked up the bright pink cabinet. The video alone has amassed 18.3K views and over 2000 comment with many clearly excited for the new arrival in Preston. One person commented: “it best not all run out before i get there.”
Another wrote: “CANT WAIT”. This person added: “IM COMING TO PRESTON ITS ONLY 10 MINUTES.”
The video was posted yesterday (January 5) showing Meggi in the shopping centre, stocking up the machine. She posted an image of the final product on Instagram as she stood smiling besides the fully stocked machine.
She stood with a hand on her growing bump as she added how she hoped to launch as many machines as possible before she is due to give birth.
