A teenage entrepreneur is selling her home-made lip gloss all over the world and banking thousands of rands, after starting a beauty business in the family lounge…

Melissa Gallagher, 17, launched Iconic Angel Beauty in January so that her father, James, did not have to work extra hours as he suffers from bronchitis.

A video of Gallagher making her vegan lip gloss products went viral on TikTok and orders streamed in. She manufactures, bottles, and prints labels from home and ships out the orders to fans around the world.

Watch the inspiring video above to learn more about how the teen entrepreneur set up her business and paved her path to success.
